    How can trannies work on the front line? They can’t, it’s like we say with xian clerks, if they can’t do their jobs they shouldn’t have them.

    Assuming trannies need their genitals carved off and severe diabetics need their feet chopped off likewise, are downwind with gangrenous feet going to allowed to serve?

    “Austere locations where we put our men and women, in many cases, don’t always provide that kind of opportunity”

    Except that transgender people can and do serve on the front lines. The Pentagon has been deploying transgender private contractors for years with no problems. It’s as easy for them to take their meds as it is for every other soldier to take, e.g. malaria drugs, or any other necessary prescription.

    Lol! Pretty misleading headline there! Anyone with half a brain could see that Hagel is not signaling a policy review or policy change. He is pretty clearly restating the reasons for the trans ban. And he is correct.

    The US military gets plenty of physically and emotionally healthy recruits – straight, gay and bi – who require no special medical attention.

    It does not need to recruit transgenders who have mental conditions set forth in the DSM V. Nor does our military need to recruit people who will then demand that it pay for the array of medical procedures that transgenders claim they need to stop themselves from killing themselves, i.e., hormones, electrolysis, “gender reassignment” surgery, facial feminization surgery, breast implants, butt implants, lip collagen, voice therapy, and on and on. And that is just for the transsexuals. Just wait until the Joint Chiefs of Staff learn about the segment of the “transgender community” known as neutrois and their demand for castration surgery.

    The Pentagon will change its policies only after pigs fly and hell freezes over.

    Good luck to the T community in their efforts to get this overturned.

    But why is it of relevance or interest to the LGB community.

    LGB and T are separate campaigns and T issues are not our issues.
