We don't need people with sexual baggage and mental issues handling weapons. We don't need transgenders in the military, period. The military needs strong, focused individuals with clear heads and determination.

Why? Because this is really important stuff, ok? I used to go through life not concerning myself with other peoples choice of lifestyle, each to their own as long as its legal. Not now, I hate the LGBT community, they are self absorbed selfish drama queens.
