there are about 15,000 transgender in the military, out of 1.36 million.
only 33% of those will likely do elective surgery... I would think most would transition before or after enlisting.
trump claiming his decision was based on cost is absurd, especially considering how much is spent on limp dick.
Well, a 2016 RAND Corporation study showed that of the approximately 1.3 million people who are considered active-duty members of the military in 2014, about 2,450 of them are transgender, making up about just 0.1-0.5 percent of the active-duty military. In addition, it’s estimated that about 1,510 transgender people serve in the Selected Reserve.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine noticed that Viagra relaxed the stomach muscles of animals, which could help the 75% of diabetic humans who have gastroparesis. The condition slows digestion and causes a loss of appetite and dehydration.
2. Altitude-related lung problems
German researchers found that when expert climbers were given Viagra, their bodies were more able to tolerate the lack of oxygen while they scaled a Himalayan peak.
Researchers in Iceland found that Viagra may block a gene that affects the growth of blood vessels which leads to a greater risk of having a stroke.
4. Female sexual function ust like its function in men, Viagra helps female sexual function by increasing nitric oxide during arousal, which increases blood flow to women’s genitals.
Approximately one in 20 women who seek treatment for infertility can’t conceive due to an overly thin uterine lining. That’s because even with the help of in vitro fertilization, the womb isn’t thick enough to hold an embryo. But Viagra seems to promote the growth of the lining of the uterus by dilating blood vessels.
6. Heart failure
Men who have experienced congestive heart failure (CHF) may be given a green light for exercise and sexual activity thanks to Viagra’s ability to lower blood pressure and heart rate.
This is particularly good news as up to 70% of men who have experienced CHF also have ED.
7. Preterm birth
A baby in England who was born 16 weeks early was given Viagra to open up her arteries in order to treat her heart and lung problems. The idea was to use Viagra to increase blood flow through the pulmonary artery from the heart to the lungs.

Or maybe, alternatively, one can accept that lots of different people have lots of different healthcare needs, and the proper and humane thing is to treat them all equally and not single out one particular group for special exclusion because a vocal minority of your supporters just don't personally like them and it serves as a great distraction from other more important things going on?

Having great sex for hours at a time when you're retired is no more medically necessary than taking hormones when you have gender dysphoria.

You know, there are whole medical organizations that know about gender dysphoria and how to treat it. Why don't you let the experts handle it.
He didn't discuss this with the Pentagon ahead of time, he simply sent out a tweet.

Freedom obviously only exists for some in the usa.
Slippery slope fallacies incoming.....
Get ready for that age old gem of "Where does it stop? First they want this, then they want that, then they want this...WHERE WILL THE MADNESS END".
Somehow equal rights has turned into an outlandish contagion effect.
