    Right. So it won't matter at work. It is a non-issue. Who cares how someone dresses at home?

    thank you I wanted to be sure that we understood allowing openly gay in the military. Next we must allow for cross-dressers.

    To me military is for one thing to kill people and break things and nothing else.
    Not people's agendas or issues.

    Look, I actually didn't bring up cross-dressing, some other poster did. I answered him. I don't care if someone wants to be a cross-dresser, but I do understand that it is not as accepted by nearly as many people as homosexuality and is not considered professional. I have yet to argue that crossdressers should be allowed to wear whatever they want. I have continued to say that if it is a big deal to cross-dressers, they should bring it up on their own. I don't think it is a huge deal to them though, especially since most crossdressers can still do so in private. In fact, I've never heard of someone actually getting discharged for just being a cross-dresser, so it is probably not such a big deal to them as long as they aren't discharged for something they do in their off-time, that must be being kept quiet enough that no one really even notices them. Although, from the websites I've browsed, there seems to be a lot more closet cross-dressers in the military than one might think. And I'd stand behind them if the military was discharging them for just being cross-dressers in their own time.

    How will that work with a cross dresser? What heads will they use? If one is having a sex change how is that handled?
    I think the rule has changed since I was in, but at the time, it was against the rules for guys to wear earrings on base. When I first joined, they could not even technically have their ears pierced. Further, there are dress codes even when in civilian clothes. Your complaint is simply not valid.

    Do you have a reading comprehension? What does a crossdresser wear to work.......what bathrooms does he/she use.............

    So a crossdresser can wear female clothes to work in your navy?

    Slippery slope is a logical fallacy.
