Hagel: Military Should Review Transgender Ban
AP via ABC News ^ | May 11,2014 | AP

Posted on 05/11/2014 1:21:54 PM PDT by John W

The prohibition on transgender individuals serving in the U.S. military "continually should be reviewed," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Sunday.

Hagel did not indicate whether he believes the policy should be overturned. However, he said "every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity if they fit the qualifications and can do it."

A transgender individual is someone who has acquired the physical characteristics of the opposite sex or presents themselves in a way that does not correspond with their sex at birth.

Obviously they don't think they've done enough yet to achieve their goals for our military so they continue.

I’m surprised he hasn’t suggested pink uniforms yet.

Is Hagel an alcohoic? No, seriously, I really wonder if he’s drunk most of the time.

Well at least after Transgender, there is nothing else. Everyone who is weird can now join the military. What are the Democrats going to do once all the special groups are accepted?

The old drunk Hagel should be bent over and ...... then tell us how much he likes it.

I have to admit there are lots of people I’d like to see the muslims get their hands on. Traitor Hagel and McCain are two on the list.

It’s obvious to anyone with half a brain they’re trying to destroy the military. What they want is a force that will attack no one but it’s fellow citizens.

Sorry folks, I didn’t view the public kissy face celebration of all that’s good and PC spectacle with Michael Sam and boyfriend as anything other than distasteful and disgusting. I think it’s instinctual with me.

Transsexuals in the military are some three steps too far. I certainly don’t want to kill any of “them”, I just don’t want it constantly shoved in my face.

I thought this line was interesting: A transgender individual is someone who has acquired the physical characteristics...”

Acquired? You mean like a woman was walking down the street and SURPRISE, male genitalia just showed up on her body, along with a beard and big hands?

Give me a break.

Oh, and Hagel is a moron.

This is great news. My dog has done nothing but talk about wanting to join the army since he was a pup. In a few more years he may be able to experience his one true desire.

I sure do remember Brooks.... Steve Allen interviewing Brooks as an airline pilot:

"What kind of airplane do you fly, sir?"

Brooks: "Wassat?"

Allen: "I say, what kind of airplane do you fly?"

Brooks (sluring words): "Wellll...isss biiiig, and iss silverrrrr *burp*"

Wrong, it can always be worse.

After this, you will see the epileptics, blind, paraplegics and quadriplegics and who knows what else demand to be in the military. While the ones I just named aren't moral degenerates, how much of the budget will go to accommodating them so they can serve? Last on the list are those who are HIV positive. Some genius will no doubt conclude there is no risk to them serving either. [/s]

Yes, we really need people who physically mutilate themselves to join the military.

It’ll add to the whole diversity thing, or something.

The fun will start when they hand them rifles.

He is some kind of chronic depression, imho. Has more bags under his eyes than a grocery store.

Because eventually they'll no longer be crazy, they'll be normal. Normal is the new crazy.

Fortunately, once they get done repelling all the full-fledged men, whoever is left will be no match for the citizenry.

Yes, Chuck. Why not continue the downward trend of the effectiveness and efficiency of our military? The military already has been hollowed out by the Obama Administration. Between the Clintons and Obama I would guess that the military is 60% as effective and efficient as it once was. I do not know where is the tipping point in the downward trend. Sad.

Hagel’s an idiot. We don’t need to be responsible for a lifetime of hormones and medical care to keep these perverts another gender. Jeeez—talk about a preexisting (and unnedessary) condition!

Within minutes of the Supreme Court decision that overturned the Federal Defense of Marriage Law (that Obama and Holder chose not to enforce) - Hagel got on his phone and declared Millions to be spent for "same sex" homosexual playthings in the military (housing, health care, insurance, etc).

While blowing through those Millions of Dollars on homosexuals, he cut the salaries of nurses, DoD teachers, and mechanics on flight lines.

Nice, huh?

His position on Israel and Jews is also most, most troubling. I have a real fear that if Israel is attacked, we will do absolutely nothing. Nothing.

Hagel’s Anti-Semitism - Beneath his anti-Israelism is a broader anti-Jewish bias, often frankly expressed.

Looks like the lunatics are in charge of the asylum. But sure, why not? Heck, let’s start looking at some other pesky requirements that prevent people from joining the military. Like heroin addiction. Most addicts function just fine....so long as we get them their regular fix. And what about convicted sex offenders? Shouldn’t they have the same rights as everyone else?

My son who was a four year ROTC member simply decided he would wait until this clown show is over to join...if he ever does...

He believes like I do, Obama will eventually kill more military serviceman do to his leadership failures than the Libs ever blamed Bush for...

Far more of our service member were killed and wounded in that shit hole of Afghanistan under Obama than Bush...far more...

Sad to hear that your son doesn’t feel that he can take advantage of his ROTC right now. Sadly the “clown show” is going to be about social issues for a while. With the service about to be used as a Dreamer fast track to citizenship, gays from all over the world will be lining up to join and bring their partners.

Too bad the good soldiers won’t be there WHEN we need them.
