This ban really needs to stay in place. These “trans” people have severe issues that no scalpel or hormone will ever fix. The military doesn’t put people with severe psychological disorders to work; the military gets them help. Accepting these people’s disorders is dangerous for them. Stop this! Get them the help they need!

Before you hate on me and my post, think of an anorexic. An anorexic looks in the mirror and sees someone very different than what they actually are. But, we don’t say to them “Yeah, you look like a pig! Get down to 65 pounds! You go girl!”, no…we get them help. These trans people are the same thing. They’re looking in the mirror, and seeing something that isn’t there. We shouldn’t be encouraging their acting out (which is exactly what this is), we get them help. Please let’s just get them some help.
