    :smokin You know I got nuthin' but big love for you...The 'Community Editor' posted another poorly-worded question (as this one is), asking about the two female Marine officers who washed out of IOC. The 'CE' used the same wording of a TIME article but if one peruses the media stories on this issue, the way it is worded betrays the bias of the writers. I wrote a really reasoned response to the thread but the entire thread disappeared...Hopefully, it is being rethought.reworded for later posting.

    What i would like to know is this "Keith" in danger of being processed out cause she willfully bypassed her chain as well as medical, going to an out in town doc for the drugs, as well as took them with her (since i doubt hormone drugs would have been allowed to be shipped if they were labled that way) when she deployed?
    Also what of the time off she will require after each medical proceedure? Will it ge charged as leave?

    You are right about there being an obvious angle of the questions posed. Wonder if they will take notice of this post.. or add that other thread

    Oh no, someone dinged me (but didn't even have enough juice to make it a negative, just a neutral) and told me to "stay in my own section.

    Internet thread police are scary; I'm shaking in my boots as I once again post in their section! :help

    Should they be allowed to wear different class A's than what their "born" gender is? I don't know about this, to me its going too far.

    How is this even possible? Wouldn't you think that someone would notice that SSgt William Clinton became SSgt Wilma Clinton?
