This is pretty much fleet-wide, too. In 2015 a knife-wielding man charged the gate at Groton submarine base (where they teach all the submariners) and while trying to clear his holster the security guard shot first his partner and then himself while the knife guy ran away. They never found out who it was or caught him.

Like, regardless of position on guns, I think we can all agree that before putting someone in a position to shoot it they should learn HOW.



Should have gotten the opportunity to go through the Expeditionary Combat School course.
Spend the better part of four weeks shooting thousands of rounds on the governments dime.

Also also... You're a girl now?
I mean, s'cool and all, but man, I have been out of the loop for a while.

Curses! When will I ever remember; Order dessert first and THEN kill everyone in the restaurant.

Yeah. And here I was thinking I was just depressed!

Depression is a motherfucker. It’s hit me hard several times over the last few years.

The trick is that sometimes your brain just fucks up making dopamine and other times it's telling you that you didn't earn the dopamine because you're repressing shit or because you're like one missed paycheck away from starvation at any given point and that makes you sad.

Has the transition been fairly smoothly?

It's been super SLOW. But that's mostly on me. I'm trying to get my face cleared, because generally it hurts your chance at passing if you can still grow a full beard.

A friend of mine did it the other way. Over the course of three years he went from looking like a female to being 100% indistinguishable from a guy, at least at first glance. Honestly, had I not known him prior to the transition I wouldn’t have been able to tell.
