    Thanks to this guy for helping make it possible for transgender individuals to openly serve in the US military. He has been working on getting the policy changed for six years.

    I don't understand.

    If transgendered people have just been allowed to serve openly, how has be been serving for the last 10 years?

    Nope....his face is ugly and he looks like he shaves his upper body, which I don't like. I like what I like!

    Also, his tats are overdone I think. 'trying too hard'

    Plus I think you are kind of cute, just don't shave your body hair! Now do you think I have poor taste?

    Trying too hard, just a tad. Hence the topless oiled up photoshoot. icon_lol.gif

    It didn't work for Pam Anderson and it doesn't work now.

    They are currently looking at changing the regulations to allow transgender individuals to serve openly. He hired a lawyer from the ACLU to take on his case, etc. He has been serving but had to go by female regulations, including pronouns, uniforms, PT standards etc. Just recently he was put on desk duty because he had testosterone levels that were way too high for a female soldier.

    Good Lord, she must've been an ugly woman. Very passable. Totally would've fooled me. Shane's far more manly than Raymond Braun.

    These hot trans ftms, formerly ugly lesbos turning into hot men, are really getting on my nerves. I'm killing myself in the gym trying to look half as good.

    Here's a vid of Sgt Shane flexing in the mirror: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_GsgxouM_Q

    There's even a YouTube channel for ftms prepping for male bodybuilding competitions. Here's on of the hottest of the new breed featured on it, "Seth:" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FtXGO5LpNI

    A video still of Seth, where as on film he can be easily mistaken for a cute frat boy:

    For his contest prep Seth shaves his body hair too. He's even hotter with body hair if you google him.

    This may have been what Chaz Bono was trying for.

    When competitive male bodybuilders transition to women and start cleaning up in women's physique contests the women cry foul (like with Renee Richards played tennis in the woman's leagues). Wonder if male bodybuilders are afraid to say anything against competing against former women, lol...

    It's more respectful to refer to transsexual people by the gender they choose. Just the person he instead of she. I must admit that I do feel strange towards transsexuals, however, they are to be respected.

    The only reason why one would be against transsexuals serving in the army is because they don't like them. I find this reason parallels to gay people not revealing their identities in the army due to don't ask don't tell.
