the suicidal thoughts would come from whichever mental disorder they have (depression, BPD) and those people are unlikely to be let through.Skeetmiser said:

"There are between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender troops in the active-duty force of 1.3 million,"
"Of those troops, RAND estimates that between 30 and 140 would seek hormone treatment, and 25 to 130 would seek surgery. The estimated annual price tag: $2.4 million to $8.4 million, per year."
"Transgender troops would be unavailable to deploy between 8 and 43 man years annually, a measure of military readiness. The military overall has 1.2 million man years. The Army has about 5,300 non-deployable man years."
So wait a minute.. taxpayers will have to pay that extra for free hormone treatment but then they are 'unavailable to deploy' ?
Im not the most knowledgable in the military department but if they aren't available to deploy then what are they bringing to the military?
It is nothing remotely comparable to the 40% of trans people that attempt suicide. It is pretty clear hat I meant in the first place. Go argue semantics with someone else.Tyler93 said:significantly is up to interpretation
white men kill themselves significantly more than _______ men so I really don't see what you're arguing for?
