‘Nobody has the “Right” to serve in the Military.
The Military is not an equal opportunity employer.
The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for things such as:
Too fat. Too skinny. Too old. Too young. Too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, missing fingers. Poor eyesight. Even bad teeth. Bad back. Malnourished. Criminal history. Anxiety. Phobias. Drug addiction. Hearing damage. Even those in wheelchairs are denied entry into military service. Can’t run the required course in the required amount of time? Denied.
The Military has one job. To go to War and Defend this Country and Allies. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. There are no exceptions made for being special, challenged or socially wonderful.
It’s the same reason they don’t allow diabetics, epileptics, or people with asthma in the military. It’s a medical liability and cost issue. If you need constant medication, like a hormonal suppression regiment necessitates, you are not mission ready. That is the military, they discriminate based on ability and commitment.
You change YOURSELF to meet military standards. Not the other way around.
The Military does not need to accommodate anyone with special needs. The Military needs to maintain readiness.
