IsThatYourFinalAnswer: Theaetetus: IsThatYourFinalAnswer: I don't see actively transitioning people being allowed in to the service any day soon. It's not so much the psych aspect, but more health readiness. The military doesn't normally take on people with serious, pre-existing conditions. Asthma, diabetes, cancer, etc... All those are disqualifying. Makes the same amount of sense to me, to prohibit enlistment of actively transitioning people too...lots of medical care required for that group.This is also why anyone who gets injured is immediately discharged from the military, regardless of whether they'll recover.Depends on the injury. A chronic, long-term injury that impedes the ability to deploy overseas, you'll get medically retired/discharged. It's a decision for med board.To flip the script, view it like this. We allow actively transitioning person into the service. They get told "Hey, shiat's going down, we're deploying. Conditions are austere, we need to stop your transition. It's unknown when we'll have the specialists needed in-theater to treat you."Being trans myself, that would SUCK.

And 'other'.[www.thegayuk.com image 694x376]/Rico says "Am I right? Look at Dizzy over here and tell me you wouldn't want to shower with th--Hey! what's poking me in the ass?! Dammit Jerry! That's no where penis goes and you know it!"
