Someone with autism cannot be a soldier.
Someone with psychopathic tendencies cannot be a soldier (if diagnosed in entrance process.)
Someone with a felony cannot become a soldier.
Are you talking about treatment in the civilian world? Of course we should take care of people with PTSD, with depression, with anxiety, people who identify as something theyre not, etc. All of those are examples of people with mental problems.
#25 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
You say someone with autism can't be a soldier, yet I know autistic people who served long, distinct careers with multiple combat tours. You claim psychopaths can't get in, yet we hear stories all the time about the ones who deeply enjoy what they do, American Sniper Chris Kyle included. True, a felon can't enter, but someone with a misdemeanor conviction, even jail time, can still serve. The simple fact is, if you can meet standards that ACTUALLY determine readiness (physical, marksmanship, and proper mental pualification), and you want to stand up to protect your home, you have the right to do so. And military policy aside, you still have yet to give an actual qualifying aspect that trans people can't meet purely because they're trans. That said, why do I get the feeling the only person in this conversation with any actual military service is the trans person?

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?

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.

Who the fuck is talking about Truman and communism? I'm talking about the democratic socialist, who held 3 consecutive terms in office until his death. But I guess whatever backwater school you came from left out Roosevelt, right?

Also, there's nothing fucking natural about that. You are delusional.

And the truth is, nothing anyone says or does will ever change your mind any other way, because you have a mental condition. You will always put all your faith in that one tiny little bit of bullshit "evidence" to justify your own beliefs about gender dysphoria, or whatever the hell you called it.

Yeahhhhh no.
The mind is molded by experiences and teachings. Two healthy parents will most likely raise a healthy child.

You can mold your mind to believe you are someone else, but does that seem healthy? There was a story of a 50+ year old man that decided he wanted to be a 6 year old girl or something and was adopted by a couple. Does that seem healthy? Does that seem legal?

I don't care what someone does with their mind if it doesn't harm anyone else, but advertising it as something normal and not at all fucking detrimental is wrong. I can spend my whole life thinking I'm a large bottle of Heinz Ketchup, I will never be ketchup

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?

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?

Hey asshole, there's a difference between moving in a convoy, where you could be shot or blown up in less than a second, and walking down the street with a pistol on your hip. In combat, your rifle is in your hand, ready to shoot at a moment's notice the entire time you're off base.

But that aside, lets look at the situation for a moment:

If someone corners you in an alley, and has a gun pointed at your head, and you try to reach for your own gun, what, exactly, do you think is going to happen? You still have to deal with the time it takes to unholster your pistol, set the safety, and aim. In that roughly 3 seconds, you can pretty easily add in the chambering, The guy is still going to shoot you in the head before you get your gun up. If he has a knife, that round in the chamber isn't going to mean a whole lot, people tend to flee for their life when they have a gun pointed at their head, they don't typically have time to see if it's loaded.

And I assume, if somebody breaks into your home in the middle of the night and wakes you up enough to shoot him, chances are you have the 2 seconds it takes to chamber a round before either he gets to your bedroom, or you find him.

Point is, there's no real valid reason to keep your gun loaded and ready to shoot 24/7 unless you're actively on duty in a combat zone with absolutely no base time whatsoever.

It is not resolved. Imagining yourself as another person, or another gender is a serious mental problem. Would you entrust your life to someone that isn't all there mentally?

Someone with an unhealthy mind in combat will worsen the situation for them. What are you going to celebrate next? Schizophrenic and proud? Homosexuality and bisexuality are natural, they are found in nature with other animals. But transsexualism is an illness that should be addressed as such
#20 - phoenixactual (06/22/2016) [-]
And on that note, I know people on this site are likely thinking "but trans is a recent condition, only found in society during the past 50 years or so. Interesting point, people living their entire lives as the opposite sex can be documented in basically every world culture dating back tens of thousands of years. By your logic, we'd have to deny service to more than half the military for one problem or another. No soldiers with autism, no psychopaths, nobody with PTSD, service connected or not, no depression, no criminal background whatsoever, just mentally perfect symbols of American perfection, since those are in such high supply. Seriously, name a specific, condition related issue that, long term, would cause problems with unit cohesion and readiness.

Like I said, 20+ first world nations are already allowing trans military service, and their units are reporting no related issues whatsoever

Fun fact, through nearly two decades of neurobiological research, it has been determined that the brains of transgender individuals are developed more similarly to the desired gender than the birth sex. Alongside this, said development differences can be traced back to hormonal imbalances in the womb. To make a long story short, gender dysphoria is verifiably natural, people just tend to ignore any scientific fact that disagrees with their personal biases.
