Default Transgender---- yeah or nah?

I'm sure you will all be aware that I am definitely for the ban!

Not that I have any bias about people thinking or believing that they really aren't the biological sex that they were born... I just don't want to have to pay for their upkeep and cost of the medical outlays that come with them.

??????????

I'm not sure what you mean MD? What ban are you talking about? Are you talking about prisoners?

If it is the cost MD you have more to worry about than you think. Millions and millions are spent on penile implants and Viagra. Damn near every cat and dog gets their vasectomy paid for. I knew of a GI plastic surgeon in Germany who did implant jobs for any chick that wanted so that he could keep up his skill and the hospital commander was okay with it. However, I had pregnant troops in Europe that couldn't get an abortion because the moral thinkers in congress passed a law that says no money can be spent for that. So these troops either used leave and paid to go back to the states or had it done locally (that really isn't a good idea). I suppose they could use the morning after pill but those great thinkers blocked that from being issued at the pharmacy. The majority of the public has no idea what goes on.
As for transgender I have mixed feelings. Use the bathroom of your genitals. You should probably dress that way also but who am I to say how you dress or who you want to be (although when you are in uniform I do have something to say about that). If you are in the military and you can carry out your duty so be it. If you are a disruption then you gotta go.
I will say that I do have a problem if the president says that he consulted with the military staff and then you find the military staff saying they know nothing of it. That's wrong, that's an issue IMM, that's a problem IMM. If the president says I don't care what the staff says or wants I am making this decision then I am okay with that. Have the balls to claim your stance.

I never served so I guess that I should just bow out of this one. I'll just say that I would let the military be the military and leave it at that. The same goes for torture. It's a war, and do what you have to to save lives.

As for the bathroom stuff I think that it's the biggest joke of all time. Let's have a friekin law for everything. Seeing as though these people have been going to the bathroom ever since they were invented what's all the fuss about?

Yes the cost---- is a major reason---- And yes I understand some reports have the number much lower and yes I understand the Viagra issue. BUT---


I can also find stats that say it will cost between 1.3 BILLION to up to 3.8 Billion plus the monthly hormone drug cost of up to $1200 per month per every transgender person. Yes stats are stats but either way it is a lot of money---- and yes viagra cost a lot, and they can get rid of paying for it also IMO, but that money is already going out, this is a new expenditure that does nothing to but reduce our readiness.

Every transgender person spends an average of 238 days unable to perform their duties. So IMM having them serve does NOT help our ability to defend this country.

Look the military limits who can serve every single day-- flat feet, obesity etc etc--- why--- because they do not help our readiness and they will add unneeded costs.

While it is only "PC" ness that drives this, IMM.

I understand and I'm with you on that. I will be very honest in that I used to get mad as hell about how many troops were married to troops so you had to 'adjust' for them and how many pregnant women were in the unit and you had to 'adjust' for them, and who didn't have a security clearance because they were a foreign national that enlisted. It wasn't just those. Sooooo many issues beyond who the hell could shoot their gun and was smart enough to do their job. Each small decision on its own may sound good but the compilation of things in this country really is hurting productivity and progress

I think any transgender fucktard should spend their days in a mental hospital . Dick , balls men's room, cunt ladies room. There is no place in the service for someone with mental problems
