Transgender troops testify before Congress

Transgender troops testify before Congress

A group of active-duty transgender troops testified before Congress to promote inclusion as litigation continues over the government’s policy to exclude trans people from the military. The group testified that they had found no issues of unit cohesion, readiness discipline, and morale related to open transgender service. They said a ban would drive ’paranoia’ of the era of ’don’t ask, don’t tell’.

People with ~40% suicide rating shouldn't be in the military.

The trans soldiers found no issues of unit cohesion... probably because they're not the ones stepping on eggshells.

Suicide rate plus combat stress. Stop getting in the way of people who actually do jobs instead of mutilate themselves and demand constant medical support.

You do not have the right to join the military. Change my mind.

You need to be mentally ill to join the military anyway so I'm not too sure what you're saying exactly. Based on what you're saying wouldn't they fit right in? Or are you saying thinking your sex isn't what you are born with isn't fucked up enough to be on the level of a sociopath so they wouldn't be as an effective killer?
