Because it pisses on the other 99.9%.

That said, I'm not in disagreement for the lifting of the ban, here, but I can have a few guesses as to why it was probably there in the first place.

Can't believe this has to be said...

Soldiers follow orders, the only thing that is relevant is if a person is capable of blinidly doing what they're told.

If we somehow had a scientific breakthrough and put a dolphin in a fully automated cyborg suit, guess what? It'd be just as capable of being a soldier as any trans or homo, without even being of the same species.

As for the mod censoring shit because they don't like it. (Regardless of reason, free speech reigns supreme) Hello nazi.

Mate this isn't 1843 where volley fire and massed infantry formations were the name of the game. A modern soldier has to be an independent human being with a distinctly non linear thinking pattern and be able to interpret mission orders laterally if need be. The modern battlefield is not a place for mindless drones. Conditions change rapidly and inflexibly is only going to get you and your fellow soldiers killed.

Transgender people by their very nature have already proven they are quite capable of thinking outside the box. Honestly instead of banning them like the outdated pricks they are the US Armed forces should be harnessing that non linear thinking of theirs.

That's just an assumption of one person, while her assertions remain reasonable, considering a wide array of those who patrol the forum, and common attitudes, it would be strange for there to NOT be a hateful comment or two. Seriously, unless you know the person in question, stop it.


In honesty? Some parts of the military don't even segregate sleeping arrangements by gender and it happened without incident most of the time.

Well.. you're not wrong.

In my experience, I've only seen a handful of transphobic comments on these forums. But I tend to skip over stupid comments, so maybe there are more than I'm remembering and giving credit for.

Not gonna drag aforementioned person back, but if she comes back on this thread, I'll just apologize here.

I'm thinking more along the lines that the military doesn't want to allocate even more of it's spending towards things like hormonal therapy, etc. for those signed under. No clue what medical benefits of the military cover, but since I know there are people who seriously advocate for using tax-dollars to pay for hormonal therapy, there's no doubt people who are going to berate the military to cover for their quick fix.

Obviously, I'm not speaking for the top brass, so it's more than likely that I could be wrong, but that was the main reason above a few others that I've thought of. I just don't 100% believe the stated reason in the article.

You're not wrong either, as my views on what constitutes as bigotry is very wide compared to most. It's just subjective though.

But when the other 99.9% are being irrational it really doesn't make humanity look well

The real question: Will they be assigned barracks based on sex or gender?
