The Military is NOT an equal opportunity employer

Subject: Fw: The Military is NOT an equal opportunity employer

When I joined the military I was taught “the military is here for a few reasons and a couple, probably primary, are to kill people and break things, and the sooner you learn that and their way of doing it, the better off you will be. Congressman Gowdy is retiring – I’m interested in learning his next job. ~Curtis.
Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Congressman, has just said a few things about the military in response to a stupid question from an equality-focussed CNN reporter about the DoD ban of transgenders joining the US armed forces. He nails it!

“Nobody has a ‘right’ to serve in the Military. Nobody. What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.

The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.

Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair?

Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of push-ups? Not really a ‘morning person’ and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be reasons for denial.

The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream ‘That isn't Fair’? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.

YOU change yourself to meet Military standards… Not the other way around.

I say again: You don't change the Military... you must change yourself. The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality... Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.

Who's next in line?”
