Here is something for the politically correct and uninformed masses out there to think about;
You cannot JOIN in the military if you have any medical conditions that require constant treatment or excessive accommodation. That’s why people with asthma, diabetes, permanent STD’s/STI’s (like HIV), people with cancer or a recurring history of cancer and individuals with physical disabilities can’t serve (except in very rare cases where a specific waiver is granted).
Transgender individuals require hormone replacement therapy, they require psychiatric care during transition, and if they elect to get surgery it can take 2-4 years for them to recover to the point of being eligible to deploy. On top of that, after the surgery they are at a higher risk of infection for the rest of their lives, which complicates any attempt at sending them to the field to train where hygiene isn’t always able to be pristinely maintained or overseas. An overseas deployment also puts the individual at risk because they may not have steady access to their hormone replacement drugs, which leads to withdrawal and hormone imbalances as well as health problems.
So, just like diabetics, people with asthma, cancer patients and those with HIV, it just isn’t feasible to accommodate these people so that they can serve.
If this was 1941, these people would have been classed as 4F, physically unsuitable for service.
So, all of you lilly-livered Democrat-Socialists can just GET OVER IT! Trump was right again and if you don’t like it, Sayonara!
