I don't see why trans people shouldn't be able to serve.

I've personally known two who weren't "Pussies" in the sense that was meant in the deleted post.
# 1 was a "Tunnel rat" in Viet Nam. Has a bronze star or something.
#2 was Army Intelligence during the first desert storm. Later disabled doing something involving Heliocopters on the Soviet-Iranian border. Lotta vagueness about that!
#3 Ooopz, I almost forgot a girl I knew who was in pictures in Soldier Of Fortune Magazine, knew R K Brown, all that stuff. Could kill you sixteen ways with one hand tied behind her back. You know. Made a very nice transition.

Of course, I don't know her but there's Captain Jan Hamilton (Google) She was a Para in the British Army in No. Ireland and other places as well. Made a really nice transition and is now a female cop in Scotland.
They are anything but "Pussies"!

Well yea! Like are you man enough to be a woman? Takes real courage to be yourself instead of what others expect you to be.
