Showing up to work in the other sex's uniform won't work. This is however, an entirely different issue from DADT and gays in the military.
    Are trans people banned from the military?

    Indeed, and I am giving a mental shoutout to all the Republicans who voted for equality. I imagine it was harder for them than the democrats.

    To be honest, I have no idea.

    By the way, with the vote today...when you signing up? I recommend Navy. It's not just a job you know.

    Holy ****! That is true. I could get my license and join the Navy now if I wanted. It's like waking up in a new world.

    First of all, straight people can be transgendered. Men who are attracted to women can also want to be women, just like men who are attracted to men.

    Second of all, with military uniforms mostly being unisex or at least having very few differences between the two (although there are some exceptions), it really wouldn't be too important for someone who was just a crossdresser to just dress in the uniform of their own gender. And those who are truly transgendered will probably try to get permission to be able to always dress and actually live as the gender that they feel they should be. Or if there are transgendered people (who have already changed permanently) that want to actually join up (I'm pretty sure post-surgery or post-any physical changes transgendered people cannot join the military) may take up that battle. I am for it but see a lot more issues with this than allowing gays to serve openly.

    Transgendered personnel and/or crossdressers would be asking for special rules to a point, although I think that they could eventually be accomodated, just not sure that it should be done right now, at least not as far as uniforms as concerned. I absolutely believe that if a crossdressing man (doesn't much matter for women, since women can wear most of the same clothes men do without anyone even thinking twice about it) wants to dress as a woman in his own time, especially off base, that this should not even be an issue, although I'm pretty certain there is no rule actually against doing this as long as they are not bringing attention to their military status (i.e. wearing the uniform of the opposite sex in public).

    He was on a LHD as a Marine (before we met). I don't know how much he seen of it. According to him, Marines do very little aboard those ships besides taking care of their own equipment. It sounded like they were just passengers, for the most part.
