No matter how hard you bitch and moan, you have options.

To answer your example, I'd figure out the system and make it so I can get an agreement with the government so i wouldn't have to fight, or meet them halfway. If I absolutely believe in my beliefs, I'd fuck off somewhere else and only come to visit with a visa.


It's your life, you have to make choices, make sacrifices, and accept the consequences of those choices when it's time to pay up.

If you don't you're just a whiny cunt who wants all the benefits without any responsibilities.

What part of "you don't owe your life to anybodty" do you not understand? If somebody openly attacks the US and invades it's shores again, then I'll happily help defend my home. But nobody should be forced to travel halfways around the world Vietnam , to fight people who have no intention of setting foot on American soil Vietnam , in a war the majority of the American public opposes Vietfuckingnam And nobody should be forced to flee their home for another country just because they don't believe in fighting a war. The draft is a violation of basic human rights. And human rights are inherent, they aren't earned, or bought

Vietnam was a corrupt choice by whoever the fuck thought it was a good idea to fight for no fucking reason.

We are smarter than that now, and can call bullshit when they try to force people in a war like that. However if another country is fucking with you or someone else, it's our duty to give support to the "good" guy.
#331 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
See, you say that, but then we go blindly into two wars with barely any intel whatsoever, in regions that just happen to hold massive supplies of oil under the desert. On that note, we also hold up as "allies" nations that literally have state sponsored terrorism schools.

You can say we should always support the "good" guy, but supporting them doesn't mean we send people who are morally opposed to killing to do the government's dirty work. The draft was, is, and always will be, a violation of basic human rights

Look, I didn't exist when vietnam was a thing, and I wasn't old enough to have a say about Iraq.

Now that I can vote, and my opinion could matter, I will try to support any group against drafting for a war that is just to take resources from another country.

You have the same right and privilege, and if you don't it's because you're too young or aren't even an american.

You have the right to go live in the woods and mind your own business if you feel that you want complete control over what you do.

If you can convince people to follow you, you can create a village of people who work to survive.

We choose to give up our rights for the simplicity of having businesses, technology, and the government to do the dirty work for us.
#326 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
It's your own fucking fault you willingly give away your rights. You didn't ask to be born here, and you owe the government absolutely nothing of your own life, unless you are willing to give it. That's why we have a volunteer fighting force. But this country is your home from birth. You didn't buy your citizenship. And I will always stand by what I said.

Now, that out of the way, here's a fun little hypothetical for you. Let's say you're a Buddhist. Your beliefs specifically prohibit you from taking a life of any kind whatsoever. Why should you be forced to violate your principles to fight in a war you don't even agree with?

You don't owe your life to anybody, it's yours to do with as you see fit.

I don't agree with it. I'm not saying it's right. But in a republic, the ability to choose one's government comes with the obligation to defend it.

You say you know an ex soldier thats autistic? The only possible explanation is that he lied at MEPS, cause that is very clearly a mental disorder.

You say I'm biased but then you speak of yourself being trans, and wanting to be or have been in the military as a trans person. Who is biased here?


#46 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
So I guess we're going for the mentally and physically perfect military, then? Alright, let's let about half the military know they're fired, then bring back the draft because we just cut our military forces in half.

So ex SEAL Chris Beck hid his condition during the enlistment process or he had identity issues during his service. Again, you can do whatever you want with your mind, but you will never change biology.

Of course, people will bend the rules and cheat the system and get into the military without the Department of Defense finding out.

Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. What makes a trans person unfit for service is their mental state. You wouldn't send someone with, lets say, major depression, into a battlefield.
#45 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
See, the whole point of the Chris Beck thing was that, despite having this supposed crippling disorder that supposedly makes you unqualified for military service, Beck made it into the Navy fucking SEALS. So, what? Being trans is fine, but living it out is the problem?

I'm not trans-phobic, I don't hate them, I wouldn't be mean to them. I'm saying they need help. But there is a reason the military sets standards, to ensure the quality of the recruit, to ensure their effectiveness in a battlefield and to ensure the safety of those around them.
#24 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
Standard? Oh no, not the standards, whatever shall we do? It's not as if there are 15000+ trans people already serving honorably, meeting literally every other standard and doing their time with distinction, right? Nah, trans people can't meet any standards at all, and aren't able to join, right?

See, here's the funny thing. There really are, as of the last national trans survey, 15000+ trans people already serving in the military. We meet the same standards, we wear the same uniforms, we shoot the same weapons, and many of us make it to high rank positions. Actually, one of the members of SEAL team 6, Chris Beck, transitioned after he retired, and is living as a woman as we speak. Running for congress, too, in fact.

What, exactly, makes a trans person unfit for service? Do you really think we're so wrapped up in our identities we're totally oblivious to the world around us? What, exactly, are you afraid is going to happen if trans people are allowed on the battlefield?
