No one cares if someone is transgender or not. Soldiers do not care. However, from a logistics standpoint it is disruptive to provide facilities to accommodate the needs of men and women. If one adds to that men who want to be treated like women or men who want to be treated like men, it adds further unnecessary complication. The occurrence of the transgender condition and the benefit these limited number of individuals provides, is not prevalent enough to warrant the expense and disruption it causes. It has little to do with “dislike of transgenders”. If they can shoot well, march far and carry me if necessary, that is pretty much all i am worried about. It is the unnecessary distraction and logistical concerns that are of concern. The military is not a social experiment or an organization who’s primary goal should be inclusion. The primary goal should be effectiveness in defending our country and defeating enemies as quickly as possible…Period.
