Yeah I agree everyone can be useful.
I think people who thought they could USE the military to pay for sex changes ruined it for those who simply want to serve.
You dont get to ask for things without giving something.
The military doesnt want their service in exchange for a half million dollar procedure that will leave them useless as a soldier.
Its not like getting stiches and a graft or an amputation and a "look"
Its a life long medical issue for an otherwise healthy person.
Dont ever ask for the military to pay for this when others dont get squat for going near deaf or losing body function after combat or what ever.
Try again in 10 years and remember, dont bring bills.
I do say let them fight. I just want them to make sure they get it. Its an army, not the civilian world.
They arent on the same page and would regret it. REALLY regret it.
ISIS would torture a trans person until blades went dull. Their own fellow soldiers may drop them off.
Its such a disconnect on their part to even try this.
