He didn't reverse anything he tweeted. No one in the DOD knew what the he'll he's talking about.
They still don't.
The Pentagon are scratching their heads.

as of this afternoon they said "we're not gonna do anything about this right now."

Again, no it wasn't.

So the evangelical Christians such as Pence never mentioned it?
Sure.


If they did, I never heard about it.

What makes you think that every one with a different gender identity requires surgery?

Or is this from the same place as your absurd "percentages"?


No one said such a thing. I said: "Transfolk are not the same as homosexuals. Homosexuals do not require expensive therapy and surgery to account for their feelings."

Wait a minute ... do you also believe that anyone who is Trans is going to have surgery?

Trans=surgery to you and Tory and several of the others???

My god.

Do transfolk require expensive therapy and surgery?

Follow up ... how do you know how much therapy gays, lesbians and bisexuals in the military require?

For that matter, how about how much therapy straight folks require?

Or, were you merely making a dull and obvious observation again?

Good. Now you know that you lied.
Of course we would stand by people if they are able to serve.


More stuff dredged from the furthest recesses of your imagination.

So it's my imagination when you said this?

I doubt you would say the same about others with medical conditions, for instance asthma, chronic arthritis, hepatitis, cirrhosis, personality disorders, mental disorders.

Given what the military spends on other "needed" medical expenses, I see nothing untoward here.

There's only one thing that matters, can they do the job? If so, there's no argument that can be made against it that means a damn to me.

Caveat: Never served a day in my life, wanted to, couldn't.

They want to, and can, they should be able to. Find a legit reason to deny them, not a faux one such as that. If the therapy doesn't allow them to do their normal job, they can be placed on some form of temporary duty for as long as it effects their ability to perform.

You have to remember, for some of these folks, if they didn't hear it, it didn't happen.

A bit solipsistic for my taste, or is that narcissistic?

Are we talking Tranny's or Hermaphrodites here? I have no problem with gays or even Hermaphrodites, nature made them that way. But when someone want to scissor off their sausage for God know what reason, and scream to the world that someone needs to pay for it, then that is disruptive and obnoxious, and the military should not have to deal with it.

How's the virtue signaling going in here?

Still the same SJW's foaming at the mouth over this nonsense while ignoring all the countless other disqualifications from military service like sleep walking and ADHD?

Are you going to say that to the transgender people who are already serving in the military who are able to do their job?

Don't you hate when people are being dishonest. People against this say it is because of surgery costs (which is a tiny fraction of the budget)...etc.

It is just the "ick" factor to them, they find trans people icky and want them to go back in the shadows, so they can pretend they don't exist.

If it wasn't for the anti trans people and their warped fantasies about what trans people do with kids, this wouldn't even be an issue.

Guess what, trans people have being using the bathroom they have identified with for years and there was not a huge outbreak of child molestation's then and there won't be now.

This isn't about medical costs, protecting the children, taking time off to heal, it is about bigotry, plain and simple.

Continue to lie to others about what the reason is, we actually know what it is about.


Who cares if they're found as icky? So are kids with zits all over their face. That's their opinion to have, you don't get to dictate what's icky for everyone else, and what's not. If you don't like it, suck it up and deal with it. You're a gleaming example of bigotry.

If it wasn't for trans people wanting special privileges, this wouldn't even be an issue.

You said we wouldn't stand by those people. I have made a liar out of you by saying that I would stand by them if they are able to serve. If they need medication for say diabetes and they still can serve I would stand by them.

Jesus Christ, this is painful to try and educate some of you morons.

How is this comparable to those things when there are currently 1000's of transgender people serving who have passed all physical and mental requirements to serve?

Are you ignoring this because you don't understand it or do you just like to repeat the same sentence while dribbling over your keyboard.

4 questions. Congrats.

Therapy for transfolk is expensive. Surgery even more expensive.


The study by the RAND Corporation estimated that 2,450 of the 1.2 million active-duty members of the military are transgender, and that every year around 65 will seek to transition to the other gender.

The RAND study said that if the Pentagon did not cover the medical procedures for service members — like hormone therapy and surgery — they would likely avoid seeking medical care and would have higher rates of substances abuse and suicide.

Paying for the procedures would cost the Pentagon between $2.9 million to $4.2 million a year, the report said. By comparison, the Pentagon each year spends $6 billion of its $610 billion budget on medical costs for active-duty service members.


Well, there's that percentage again.

Paying for the procedures for 65 people, according to this study, will cost $2.9 million to $4.2 million a year. That's not cheap.

You have like 100 posts on transgenders in the military.

Yet I can't find a single post about all the others with issues like ADHD who are locked out of the military.

Virtue signaling at its finest.

And ya, I'd happily tell a transgendered if they can serve, so should someone with ADHD. But you think otherwise. Happily trotting along while numerous others can't serve.
