"(I)ssues...have caused contention...most notably how long troops would need to serve before being eligible for gender reassignment surgery."

It would be nice if he expanded on it without getting insulting.

I don't understand why the world must bend over backwards for 0.1% of the population. I really don't get it.

Aaah, finally. Military parades will be FABULOUS.



ISIS will never know what hit them

because



And then the world ended. And God judged you all as sinners.

Oh noes!

So many jokes in bad taste ripe for the picking. I don't know where to begin, agh, it's merging, agh, my jokes are turning trans.


Shit, it's getting late. Have fun with the hate thread.

Borderline no additional expense for Pentagon medical costs, a relatively low number of recruits to have to worry about accommodating, latitude granted to each branch to determine how specifically to accommodate according to their needs, a year of planning already underway, acknowledgement of the fact that transgender recruits are just as capable of serving with distinction, and no indication that readiness would be significantly affected.

All systems are go, and this is great news.

Yay! They should be allowed to defend their country just like anyone else who wants to.
