The transgender thingy is funny to me since it takes hormones to keep the thingy going. My question is what would happen if a soldier were to be in the field in deep cover for several months & not have “his” hormones – would his dick fall off & confuse the enemy ?

Of course there is the on going story about #Trump thinking (tweating) his whims re controlling the justice department (Sessions should resign) versus Sessions standing up for the rule of law applying to all equally – even #POTUS.   I say, let the best principle (in this case #threefoldness) win over #Trump’s whim to dictate according to his internal egotism.

#btw http://www.memeorandum.com/  is,  bar none,  the best (most unbiased) picture of the political stories of the day … it updates moment to moment. Me, i consult it frequently … note the top story today is the one i sited above, Today's Glean #1 (comment 79963).

memorandum is almost as good as my particular twitter feed … which, of late,  i have beefed up the political component.   memeorandum is more of a running summary, a twitter feed is more instant to instant … transaction to transaction.   i swear to god it is a view into the current thoughts running through the conscious society in which we live.

#TransGenderMilitary #Trump #tweets

I don’t believe there are 15,000 active duty trannies .


seems to me that is a fact, the veracity of which, could be established with a bit of energy.

Yep, for you it a fact for me it is a #bullshit compounded to support the leftist narrative.  Enjoy da #juice.

 ABOUT ½ THE NUMBERS  – I got mine from WOLFRAM ALPHA, But since Obama decimated the military I suspect the number is even  lower.

An earlier report published in April 2011 by the Williams Institute estimated that 3.8 percent of Americans identified as gay/lesbian, bisexual, or transgender: 1.7 percent as lesbian or gay, 1.8 percent as bisexual, and0.3 percent as transgender.

i do not believe the 15,000 figure without corroboration.

#mccain weighs in on #potus’s tweet …

The statement was unclear. The Department of Defense has already decided to allow currently-serving transgender individuals to stay in the military, and many are serving honorably today. Any American who meets current medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving," the Arizona Republican said in a statement. "There is no reason to force service members who are able to fight, train, and deploy to leave the military -- regardless of their gender identity. We should all be guided by the principle that any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet the standards should have the opportunity to do so -- and should be treated as the patriots they are.

John McCain

Yep, McCain likes to straddle both sides (pun probably intended) .null Identity politics allowed a lot of people to get free expensive hormone therapy & surgery in transition & maintenance on the tax payer dollar. How many joined , after Obama opened the flood gates , just for that?  Witness how long this news front will last. Remember, criticizing Obama was always called racist. The thingy on bathroom labels lasted several weeks.

Yeah same story rears its ugly head again.  Being #trans is new to our #society, and will be opposed.  Yet just like being #gay was opposed, and now is acceptable, the new sorting can come to pass.  Inevitably all should be equal in the face of the law … implying none should be disadvantaged.  Hopefully that will come to pass with a minimum of #static and a maximum of #consciousness.



#btw there are times when even i identify as #trans.  the old roles being so very fixed at birth is not as important to me as is my freedom to be the girl that i am.


It is not the sex thingy but the maintenance costs.  The point of the military is to kill people & break things as an instrument of political power. It is not one big fucking social experiment as Obama thought it was.
see my “i don’t care what you do with your genitals” at FYI .... Deer Friends null


I’ll believe your flock of #birdies when Iran quits executing gays etc.  I wonder what Muslims feel about trannies null

well your point of the military being “to kill people & break things” is a gross exaggeration … none the less the military is an instrument of political power.   some of us are hoping for a more gentle world in which your exaggeration lessens in importance.  perhaps a world where masculine is not so very dominant over feminine.  thing do change, you know.

#BellyLaugh Try backing off on your #AlreadyAlwaysArguing & maybe get your friends in the #ChuckyCheese crowd to quit being opposed to everything President Trump does & quit the #TrumpingOff 
Maybe even start on an invite an Isis member to lunch program going in your backyard.
Someday I’ll talk about the moment I tried to talk Charlene into a Black-White encounter group program with her black doctor friend.

Here is some background on #Trump’s tweet …

an internal House Republican fight over transgender troops was threatening to blow up the bill. And House GOP insiders feared they might not have the votes to pass the legislation because defense hawks wanted a ban on Pentagon-funded sex reassignment operations — something GOP leaders wouldn’t give them.

They turned to Trump, who didn’t hesitate. In the flash of a tweet, he announced that transgender troops would be banned altogether.
