    Re: Study: Military is ready for transgender troops

    The wrong question is being asked here. The questions that should be being asked are...

    How does allowing transgendered troops BENEFIT the military? Would the introduction of transgendered troops give us any sort of tactical advantage? Is the net result a stronger fighting force? Is their a tangible benefit besides appeasing the gods of political correctness?

    Having our enemies laugh us out of the room just so the Left can indulge in yet more Politically Correct nonsense:

    Priceless.

    If they are laughing, they wouldnt be able to shoot straight.

I'm guessing we're talking about an insignificant number of people - a few thousand if I had to guess. If catering to them means lots of money and organizational upset it hardly seems worth the effort.
    No, catering. Just let them serve like everyone else.

    There is no good reason whatsoever why we should make an exception to that rule for a bunch of confused flibbertigibbets who want to dress up and pretend like they're something they are not.
    Still no catering to anything. Treat them like the other service members.

    The first statement that has a basis of an actual reason. I dont think it will undermine troop effectiveness but it should be studied extensively to be sure.

    No, the question to ask is if it will hurt the military? If by allowing transgender troops, the military keeps going along with no change then they should be allowed as well.

    Nonsense. They'd have custom uniforms before the end of the decade.

    It happened with women. It'd happen for transsexuals as well.

    Explain what would be needed please. I think it will be negligable.
    "Awareness" campaigns, massive PR campaigns meant to sell the idea, new "sensitivity" curriculum, committees dedicated to looking into ways to make transsexuals feel "more comfortable," modifications to housing and barracks, massively inflated costs devoted to EO and IG complaints lobbied by transsexuals who feel "discriminated against," new training curriculum, etca, etca...

    The list is basically endless.

    If they are laughing, they wouldnt be able to shoot straight.
    The 111TH Fighting Shemale Brigade. I can hardly wait.

    By which you mean making them suck it up and dress and lodge with their birth gender, like everyone else?

    Sure. I could go for that.
