Can they do the job? If the answer is yes so flipping what.
You should be thanking these folk for willing to put their lives on the line.


I agree.

Unlike the mindless leftists who only believe what their party masters tell them, many of us "Trump supporters" were against the president on this issue.

If people are able to serve and want to serve, then they should be given the opportunity to serve.


Only if they are treated exactly the same as the next guy they are serving with, but yeah, if so then I can't see a problem.

You guys both get stars for under rstanding that patriotism is not a "gender issue."

Can you tell me why being a Trans person would stop them doing their job?.

Ugly ugly talk. Did anyone ask for privleges? No I don't think so. They want to be soldiers. That's all they ask. No one is asking for the military to pay for surgeries because MOST transgender do not go in for sexual reassignment.

The president can set policy, the courts determine whether it is constitutional. The Second Amendment gives Americans the right serve in the armed forces. What do you think "bear arms" means?

Even if they do want sexual reassignment surgery afterwards, so what!

They served, they signed a contract, they wrote a check that placed their own life on the line.

I came into this thread to see the whinging man-babies getting their knickers in a twist about 'evil libruhls' and 'scary transexual people', and I have not been disappointed.


For self-proclaimed proud strong men, there sure is a significant element of whinging man-baby about a few members of Cult#45.



These Trans servicemen and women are serving their country and doing a damn fine job of it. Frankly they should stop being picked on by panicked alt-righters who feel threatened by their very existence.

And I'm proud to stand alongside the posters here who are saying the same thing.

Tall people? I had no idea. Flat feet and other physical limitations are different. How you identify sexually doesn't effect you physically. They do send both sexes into battle these days.

I don’t see why the military has to accept trannies. They don’t accept tall people or people with flat feet and you don’t see courts overturning people with those types of deviations. The military should have the right to deny entry to anyone that has an anomalous condition.

In the United States, citizens have rights, not the government.

It's not their fault that Trump rushed this ill-conceived ban. If his issue is free operations then he should move to block those instead of trans in general.

a reply to: Metallicus

Then they need a method to test for it, to root them out, you could say. It's easy to see which kid is too tall and which one has flat feet.

Reason # 908,776,541 for you unhinged Leftists to cry about Trump.
You guys were exposed a long time ago for what you are.

Wrong. The precentage that get sexual reassignment in general is low. In the military it is practically unheard of. You should look things up before you post .
The cost that is incurred by hormone therapies and what little surgery may take place is a tiny tiny sliver of the DOD budget.



If all they want to do is fight and be treated exactly the same as any other man, then great


You may not know this under that rock but women go into battle too these days.

Ut oh. I hope they get home in time to cook dinner...

Pretty simple set of standards to enlist. Physically and mentally fit being at the forefront.

Is consistent medical treatment fair across the board?

Who is crying the ban is not in place so yeah maybe Trump may be having a boo.

Really? How silly! I thought it would be safer to wait for the soldiers to come back from battle, rather than cooking in the battle itself.

You don't have a right to be a soldier, marine, seaman or airmen.

Why does being 6 '6" or having flat feet keep a soldier from doing their job and why aren't you fighting with equal zeal for their right to serve?
