Personally I think they have mental problems, but I'm willing to admit that could just be a personal bias.
Either way, the experts will decide this issue.
As for transitioning, I think ANY elective surgery should be paid for by the servicemember It would be a way to cut down on the spiraling medical costs for the military. Having worked in the medical field during my 20+ years I saw numerous unnecessary surgeries done just because the taxpayer was picking up the tab. My doctor even offered to give me a bleph to get rid of my baggy upper eyelids, even though it would NEVER have qualified as being medically necessary; I declined.
I can agree with you on this..... I had no issues with the undeclared gay Marines I served with. I don't think I'd have had an issue if they were open about it........ They weren't "flaming" about it at the time. They were there to do the job. Period. Thats all any of us were asked to do. I'd serve with them again.proudly. They were Marines. They paid the dues to belong.

Wrong again.
The real problem is what you see in the mirror.
Are you L today? Perhaps you feel more G or B or even T.
Not sure? Perhaps you're Q.

No, I'm correct. That post specifically mentioned male genitalia. The only unusual thing there was that it didn't also mention anal sex, as closet case, sexually sick homophobes usually do be sure to mention.

If you don't care why do you ask? If you want sexual orientation kept secret why don't you demand str8 people never indicate theirs?

Because homophobes are mentally ill, that's why. And additionally your post well shows how homophobia is now concentrated among the less well educated, the less intelligent.

Your syntax is so poorly thought out that that sentence is ambiguous. The "they" could be either of two things.

You must have a fever or something. Not because you can't think or write, but because your post had less commentary about feces and male genitals than usual.

As a Marine in the 70's I knew I served with a few. Good men,good troops. No issues. They did their jobs. Period. NOT like the flamers serving NOW about being gay to make a political point. I see no trouble with gays in the military,but trans(?)genders? That seems to be a question of folks with mental confusion about who/what they are and we don't need that in the people we intrust the security of our Nation with.
It would behoove you to educate yourself on the condition generally known as "Transgender". It is not a "mental confusion" as you put it. Once you have educated yourself on the matter, then I will listen to your opinions. And, no, I am not Transgendered. I am just someone who knows his limitations, and am prepared to defer to the experts in the field.

Just because someone has a mental disorder that is not their fault that does not mean we are obligated to fix it so they can be in the military. We should not accept transgender people into the military just like we should not accept someone who needs an organ transplant.

Exactly. Men who stick their d!cks in other men's asholes and suck each other's d!cks shouldn't be allowed either. If that's not a mental disorder I don't know what is.

Read my reply to to another poster in my post just above yours. It applies to you, as well.

That is probably only one of the multitude of subjects on which your opinion is misguided, ignorant, and malicious.

Just because you are confused and are part of a movement to make certain classifications unpopular does not mean that everyone has to go along. Behaviors and experiences seen in transsexualism are abnormal and constitute a dysfunction. If this stuff were normal two gay guys could get together and have a baby but they can't, it is against nature. Transgender has been a disorder and only recently through successful lobbing by some in the psychiatric community been removed form the DSM. If it is a disorder you have an argument for asking insurance companies to repair something that is wrong but if it is not a disorder just a normal variation in people you have no right asking that it be paid for because it is normal, it is then on the same footing as cosmetic surgery. You can't have you cake and eat it too.

I openly admit I often have a problem with opinions that I believe reflect ignorance, cruelty, greed, and bigotry. The difference is that I'm not hypocritical enough to accuse others of doing the same.
Almost every one of your comments is long on insults and short on insights. You adopt a wholly unearned air of superiority when you want to dismiss someone else's opinion, as though you were privy to some information the other poster is not bright enough to understand. I at least try to back up my verbal assaults with data, something you virtually never do.
