  • Transgender should be in the military because there will be more people in the military

    And if transgender are in the military the military will have more more people in the military to help out the military and transgender will help the military they will serve the military and we can win more wars so we can beat isas for the united states of america

  • Trancegender should be in the military beacause there will be more people in the military

    And if they it will help the miliatary they will have more people in the military and it will help if they have a war and there would be helpful for them to kill people in a war so thy ccould win a war if there trancegender people in milytary

  • Tranzgender peapol should be aloud to to be in the army

    It should not mater if you are tranzgender or not . Some peapol want to serve the us and if thare is a world war 3 then transgenders will not help and transgenders are a qarter of are population . And the us will want them to fight for the us

  • If they are capable to do so

    Man, woman, transgender or not, it doesn't matter as long as they are capable of doing so. You're supposed to want more people for the military as they strengthen your army, keeping them out because you are uneducated and have a personal bias is childish.
    There have been trans people who have served already. If you cannot handle a trans person, why should we trust you to handle being in the military?

  • If the person is capable, they can serve the military if they wants to.

    If the person has a good health, abilities and can easily be trained to a skilled soldier, I thinks the person can serve in the military and it doesn't matter if the person is cis or transgender, even though being cis gives more advantages. Some transgender people are capable to be in the military if they gets the right treatment. The important thing for people who organize the military is to giving the soldiers a suitable work. I wouldn't recommend a transgender soldier to traveling to Afghanistan, Iraq etc. due hormones and danger. It might be difficult to send hormones and it's especially dangerous in countries like that. But letting them serve in their home country wouldn't be any problems in my opinion. If a transgender person is post-op, sharing showering etc. wouldn't be a big problem, since they aren't so gender dysphoric then including surgeries can change their looks. If the transgender person is pre-treatment, it would be more difficult. But I thinks the military has capacity to find a good solution which works for everybody.

    I thinks the military can be suitable for some transgender people, if the military organize things properly. But it's not recommended for the dysphoric.

    When it comes to transgender people who aren't out, but abuse the military, I'm more skeptical. Some trans people, especially trans women, use the military as attempt to "cure" themselves and keeping them inside the closet, something that would make things worse. Transgender people who use the military as a tool to keep them inside the closet shouldn't serve, but healthy and open transgender people can serve.

  • They should join

    Transgender people are a minority group, meaning there are less of them than there are cis straight white people. Here are some reasons why they would be beneficial:

    1)They are humans over the age of 18, and some have legal standing as their preferred gender. If they have their preferred gender on their ID, then there shouldn't be a problem.
    2)They will raise the moral of the men and women in the military because they are more suited to making people feel better about themselves, thanks to Dysphoria training them mentally.
    3)Are you having sex with them? No? Then their gender should have no effect on you. The idea that Christianity is still a factor in this is disgusting, there is nothing about them which attacks anyone. This isn't q rebellion, it's people wanting rights.
    4)Men and women who are transgender have lower suicide rates than the average American teens, according to a recent study, which showed that up to 64% of American teens aged 13 to 19, have made at least one attempt at their life. Out of those numbers, about 54% of them go on and lead happy, normal lives.
    5)Men and women who are transgender are also less likely to be depressed post op, with a staggering 86% saying that they "smiled more" than they had when they were their birth genders.
    6)Anxiety is a disease that doesn't only target transgenders, it targets everyone. It is a disease which affects every person of every race, colour, religion, and gender.
    7)Once a surgery has been completed, they need only take their medicine to retain their hormones. Otherwise, there's still little to no maintenance required.
    8)Not every transperson gets silicone injections to look the part. A transman's parts are typically constructed from their original female parts, and the transwomen's parts are made the same way, but in reverse. Breast implants which are done properly, will not put the woman at any risk that is higher in percentage than taking 3 shots of vodka and ending up disabled for life.
    9)Substance abuse is rampant among everyone, not just transgendered people.
    10)Heart disease risks aren't limited to the transgender community. Being transgender doesn't give you a higher risk of a heart attack or stroke.

    This was a direct attack on "The military is not a social experiment and this site is completely skewed liberal" 's argument. Open your eyes, good sir, and see that the future of America is true freedom for all people. Stop living in the dark ages, and come to the light. They don't want to be used as a social experiment, they want a stable job.
    Thank you.

  • This shouldn't even be a question

    Men should be serving. Women should be serving. Transsexuals should be serving. If they live here and they're of legal age, they should be fighting. I don't believe anyone should be given a completely free pass to walk around soaking up the jobs, the healthcare and the property. If they're capable of serving, they should be able to

  • Yes, they should be allowed to join

    As long as they are able to do the job itself then gender should play no part in their ability to be accepted into the military. Plenty of other nations allow trans people yet the us is behind on this front. Their was a time when some may have thought that the lifting of dont ask dont tell would cause the military itself to collapse....But look, it seems to still be alive and kicking.

  • The military is not a social experiment and this site is completely skewed liberal

    There are many reasons why men and woman who "transgender shouldn't serve in our military:

    1)They are mentally unfit
    2)They will lower the moral of the men and woman serving in the military
    3)The targeting of Chaplains and other religious figures in the military will increase even further, specifically against Christians
    4)Men and woman who "transgender" have suicide rates, with attempts on their life, of up to sometimes 20 to 41 percent...! According to recent studies
    5)Men and woman who "transgender" have depression rates of 51.4% for transgender women; 48.3% for transgender men
    6)Men and woman who "transgender" have anxiety rates of 40.4% for transgender women; 47.5% for transgender men
    7)The "maintenance" to keep their "transgender" "switch", for lack of a better term, could interfere with basic duties
    8)Silicone injections that are used to "shape" their body in accordance to the gender the are trying to imitate are severely unhealthy and risk for men and woman who "transgender"
    9)Substance, tobacco, and alcohol abuse is RAMPANT among people who "transgender"
    10)"Trans gendering" men and woman often have HIGH risks of heart disease

    The military turns you down for just being overweight or too short or too tall in many cases, now with this laundry list that comes along with a person who is post OPERATION, a surgery, of "trans gendering" I am appalled at how the Pentagon is ignoring all these facts and factors and using the military as a social experiment.

  • If you ever served a combat tour - no women no gays no transgender

    2-3 missions a day, kicking in doors, firefights. Long periods of boring then abrupt action. Months no shower or hot chow. This social engineering has to stop. There's only one Victor in combat 30 second place. Putting transgenders gays women in combat for lead to men dying. Anyone that has been a true combat tour it's been a real mission understand is that what I'm talking about, and there's nothing to debate about it. Coming from a Former Marine with combat tours Desert Storm Somalia Iraq and Afghanistan. What we do is no joke, and it is no experiment. This is a sad day for the true warriors to protect Americans freedoms.

  • Focus and Discipline

    The military is about focus and discipline.Our soldiers deserve the support and consistency. There is just too much political correctness and whining going on here. We need our men and women to be able to focus without distraction or confusion. Without worrying about offending this person or if the person is male or not male. It has just gone too far.

  • No transgenders in the military.

    The military is not a social experimentation club. I believe transgenderism is a mental disorder and the military should not be forced to take in the mentally ill who are on hormone therapy and require ongoing medical treatment and constant medical attention. Do we really need this in the military? We need to consider what's best for the military, not these self-centered mentally fragile people.

  • Sorry just no

    If you are so confused as to not be able to determine or accept your genetic make up then your time would be better spent in therapy. I have worked with transgender people before & have no problem but not in the military. Just not the place for trans people.

  • No go zone for trans genders

    Seriously, in the best interest of the military, a transgender person should not be allowed. The military must have the most competent people and a person suffering from gender confusion is in no mental condition to serve their country to the standard that is required. Political correctness ids not going to win a military battle!. The military needs to have moral standards for the moral of those that serve. It needs confident people that are self assured and able to give 100% focus on what they are doing. A trans gender is suffering from a mental condition and so they are not mentally stable and fit to serve in the U.S military. At the end of the day, it comes down to what's more important, having the highest standard in the military or kowtowing to political correctness. P.S If I were fighting against America, I'd want the U.S army to have as many trans genders as possible! "The truth is: With 40% of transgenders attempting suicide, you do not need a Ph.D. To understand they are unhappy, depressed and have deep psychological problems. Approval for hormones and surgery are given upon request even if the person is obviously unfit and has psychological problems. Changing genders will not fix them; therapy will."

  • Good Order & Discipline

    It is important to recognize that the military used to pride itself on Good Order and Discipline. Since DADT was repealed, sexual harassment in all branches of service exponentially increased. If I were Putin and the US decided to use the military option, I would send my best troops to capture a company of US troops, dress them in drag, and say in a propaganda movie for all the world to see, especially YouTube......"You train your troops to dress in drag and practice the sin of homosexuality instead of training your men for war."

  • Just a Distraction

    People need to stay focused on what's important. This is just a distraction and has no place on the battlefield. All it will do is add more problems to an already chaotic problem with Don't Ask Don't Tale being struck down. People need to wake up and realize this isn't about equality or tolerance.

  • Transgendered people erode morale.

    How can any fighting man respect the decisions a leader that's so mentally/emotionally deranged that they imagine themselves to be a different gender? This was classified as a mental disorder because it IS a mental disorder ( it still is by the U.S. Military...Thus a ban on transgender military personnel). The basis of military discipline is respect and confidence. Even with months or years of liberal brainwashing, I don't believe most combat troops would have much respect or confidence in a leader believing/pretending to be a different gender than what reality/nature/biology made them. In addition, some military positions are closed to women because they lack the physical strength to perform these duties. If we were to support the fiction that trans-men are real men this might present some confusion.
