The reason this is sad is because the issue is bathrooms.
This is what separates who the more qualified choose to be in their Army. /s
It's not performance. It's not capability either. It's attitude.
The "Straight" soldiers complain about Trans in 'their' bathrooms, and the Army isn't about to cater to either side.
The statistics of incorporating a third bathroom/private bathroom into the Army is simply too expensive. The Army is designed specifically designed
for lots and big. Most of the bathrooms are not a door and single stall, but larger Men/Women rooms with many stalls.
A third private stall would be for Trans benefit, and for others benefit, as the complaints come mostly from the non-trans side, but anyone can
reasonably see the cost verse percentage is too expensive to incorporate, so the most peaceful solution is to minimize trans in areas that cannot be
accommodated. Intelligence gathering is a huge field, many work from home even, but the point is this topic is focused around bathrooms yet again, and
not ability to serve.
All the comments about surgeries and mental illness is what's called 'ball punching' from ignorant members about the issue. Any trans in the Army is
probably as comfortable with a bush as the next man, they're in the Army, not every trans is a pillow snowflake. Personally, this is still ridiculous
to me that people complain at all. Even with shared bathrooms, there are individual stalls to give you personal privacy. But while keyboard warriors
feel comfortable claiming the issue is trans are too girly to serve, the true issue is the 'macho men' are too squeamish to even share personal space
with other Americans there to serve, and react like girls that see a spider or lizard and complain to the CO about it.
