I just said, slightly less so

2017-02-13 21:50:03 UTC  

Every fucking government in the world is shit

2017-02-13 21:50:04 UTC  

And Trump has a point regarding the Military part. In regards to Trans soldiers, there's a fucking LOT more at risk. The biggest issue being that trans women, especially on HRT, are naturally far weaker than normal males

2017-02-13 21:50:10 UTC  

all of them

2017-02-13 21:50:27 UTC  

To accept them despite that weakness is a huge liability and risk to the other soldiers around them

2017-02-13 21:51:06 UTC  

Military should just have standard fitness testing regardless of gender, then there is no problem.

2017-02-13 21:51:28 UTC  

There was an article out a couple years ago how a fire department accepted a woman despite completely failing the fitness tests, in the name of political correctness

2017-02-13 21:51:32 UTC  

Same exact situation there

2017-02-13 21:51:37 UTC  

She's a major fucking liability

2017-02-13 21:51:39 UTC  

Well it's not though is it?

2017-02-13 21:51:46 UTC  

But it fucking is

2017-02-13 21:51:47 UTC  

Considering we have no insight into what's happened

2017-02-13 21:51:56 UTC  

I just told you

2017-02-13 21:52:17 UTC  

No he's saying the military is wrong to accept females and trans people

2017-02-13 21:52:20 UTC  

And aside from physical strength, there's also the matter of meds, general upkeeping, etc etc

2017-02-13 21:52:23 UTC  

Yes

2017-02-13 21:52:27 UTC  

And I understand that

2017-02-13 21:52:29 UTC  

Not in the nape of political correctness

2017-02-13 21:52:31 UTC  

And I agree

2017-02-13 21:52:40 UTC  

Nowhere is that mentioned apart from by him

2017-02-13 21:52:49 UTC  

literally all that matters is a standard fitness test, other considerations are fairly trivial.

2017-02-13 21:53:24 UTC  

There's no mention of unconditional acceptance

2017-02-13 21:53:42 UTC  

All Trump is angry over is the fact that it's not just men

2017-02-13 21:53:59 UTC  

If they can't deadlift 400lbs, then don't accept them. That simple.

2017-02-13 21:54:10 UTC  

The military benchmarks are somewhat outdated anyway, some of the required excersises and shit are anitquated.

2017-02-13 21:54:41 UTC  

And I just explained why it isn't "just men"

2017-02-13 21:54:47 UTC  

also, regarding the bathroom thing

2017-02-13 21:54:52 UTC  

"Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump had initially broken with his party’s official stance, claiming earlier this year that trans people should be allowed to use the bathroom that they want.
Asked in April if he would be fine with Caitlyn Jenner using the women’s bathroom, he had replied: “That is correct”."

2017-02-13 21:54:53 UTC  

and then

2017-02-13 21:55:07 UTC  

"He said: “I’m going with the state. They know what’s going on, they’ve seen what’s happening.
“I’ve spoken to your Governor, I’ve spoken to a number of different people, and I’m going with the state.”"

2017-02-13 21:55:52 UTC  

Okay fair enough, please refute the rest too

2017-02-13 21:55:57 UTC  

I can find more if you wish

2017-02-13 21:56:01 UTC  

This switch personally tells me it's like the matter that Milo mocked about during one of his speeches

2017-02-13 21:56:18 UTC  

Which I originally was disappointed and upset about when I only heard about it

2017-02-13 21:56:38 UTC  

which was "omg milo mocked a trans person on stage in a speech!!!"

2017-02-13 21:56:42 UTC  

When in reality

2017-02-13 21:56:44 UTC  

By milo do you mean milo yiannopoulos?

2017-02-13 21:56:48 UTC  

yes

2017-02-13 21:56:48 UTC  

He is a fuckwit

2017-02-13 21:56:51 UTC  

he is

2017-02-13 21:56:57 UTC  

But in this case he had a good point
