That alone is about half of the entire military budget. It's also not like you have a choice to buy foreign military gear, it all has to be designed and made right here, at great expense.
Why? Germany buys foreign arms, Israel buys foreign arms, Finland buys foreign arms and even China buys foreign arms. What's so different about the US?
And then you have a false dilemma - the choice is not between paying 25% of the budget for the army and getting children blown to pieces but between paying 25% of the budget or paying a lesser amount.
Several Millennia of the 'binary' gender/sex of Male / Female physiology is not whimsy to the deliberate cognitive dissonance of a microscopic representation of humanities edge cases as measured along the same time frame.
Several millennia are also whimsy to democracy, rule of law, vaccination, MRI, X-Rays, internal surgery and computers. And I've noticed that you're not even defending your position that there are only two "genders" anymore.
Now you've moved goalpoasts now.
Just as a hint, there's no surgery that will enable you to produce sperm if you're a woman, and no surgery to enable you to bear a child to term is you're a man. *NONE* And even you know why.
The key word here is "yet". There are attempts at uterus transplants already and there are *NO* reasons why sufficiently advanced surgery won't be able to get trans-females to bear children. It'll take some time, though.
Oh, and not every woman can bear children and not every man can produce sperm. So do we have four genders now?
Thousands of years from now, when archaeologists are digging up our remains and examining the bone-structure, they are going to identify the remains as male or female by the subtle differences unique to each and identify the person as 'male' or 'female' based on their physiology.
And sometimes they misattribute the gender, since it's not always possible to tell the difference.
Gender is not a social construct. Mental illness on the other hand is.
As exemplified by you.
