    Well Bruce is a lib-tard half-female what was a male and since most of the media is about the same, they support the idiots that do what they would like to do but lack the ba...er...the part Bruce kept just in case, to do it themselves.

    There's a reason we always called officers "zeros"

    No worries :) As was mentioned, those are most likely Academy pics...not displaying their current ranks.
    Those two certainly demand more recognition and respect than the Jenner creature...

    Congratulations to Capt Griest and 1st Lt Haver for their achievements. More power to them and the other women in the US military who will follow in their footsteps.

    As to the impotent outrage about Caitlyn Jenner's nomination in Glamour Magazine as one of the magazine's Women of the Year awardees; it seems like an over reaction about a British glam magazine that might generally see the light of day in some beauty salons, and the waiting rooms of cosmetic surgeons. Caitlyn was but one of many women awarded recognition by the magazine. Glamour's Women of the Year 2015: Reese Witherspoon, Victoria Beckham, Misty Copeland, and More Honorees Being a Brit magazine, they can nominate anyone they can damn well please. Caitlyn Jenner is a Glamour magazine Woman Of The Year

    Somewhat less glam pics oh Haver and Griest

    As significant as Griest's and Haver's successful qualification as US Rangers is, within the US military, A British glam mag may not even be aware of Griest's and Haver's existence. I suspect that the two femmes fatales are probably more interested in path blazing for their gender, within the military, than slinking around in cocktail dresses for some glam mag; which would only tend to undercut their role as professional soldiers in a traditionally conservative, male profession.

    It is an opinion that is undoubtedly shared by many in SM and sites like it. Griest and Haver certainly are deserving of recognition and respect. However, recognition of Griest's and Haver's success has to be tempered by the fact that many males in the US military who will probably not accord them much in the way of either recognition or respect.

    I think that there are probably transgender women who would gladly live with ten years of menstrual cramps in exchange for not being the object of hate or pity, or being the fetish objects of others. Trying to live as one's authentic self is as much as many hope to achieve, with or without the understanding and compassion of others.

    [stirpot] LOL! I figure in a few years Bruce will go back to being a man because he has already started whining that it is a lot of work being a woman.
