Take a bunch of homophobic young men hopped up on testosterone and typical tough guy army bull****. Now throw a few homosexuals into the mix.
Back in the 80's when I was active RA DADT was a good idea.
As I said before maybe times and peoples attitudes have changed enough to where it is no longer necessary.
No Lives Matter
There are many situations in the Army where you're in close quarters and being close to an openly gay man would be akward. There was a guy in my basic training who had a habit of staring at guy's penises in the shower. Finally a dude called him out on it and he ended up getting the living **** kicked out of him.
There are gay men in all branches of the service. Some are pretty much known, some are completely secret. The fact is it does not serve anyone's interest to have them broadcast their sexuality. This is just another instance of liberals trying to shove the gay lifestyle down people's throats and make them accept it as legitimate and respectable.
Liberals are making the same mistake with this issue that they do with everything else. They believe that striving to implement their ideological view of how the world should be is more important than whether or not it can actually be applied in a real-life situation. I honestly believe that liberalism is a mental disorder.
What a shame if gays could serve openly, that would just be the end of the military because as we all know military personnel can't handle any changes right?
He became an activist and violated policy.
He is unfit to be an Officer in the US military.
Doesn't matter what he was being an activist for.
Yeah just like that that's right.
He fails to follow orders, he does not represent his role porperly, he is a detriment to the chain of command.
His conduct is unbecoming of an officer in the United States Army and grounds for his dismissal from service.
He knew the rules, he knowingly broke them, his conduct is unfit for an officer in the US military..
He can decide to do whatever he wants as a civilian..He cannot do whatever he wants as an officer in the US Army. Why we call the G.I.'s.
He got what he deserved.
Continue trying to use emotional responses and such..it makes no difference.
Race is not a lifestyle choice.
((Its usually really easy to tel who has been in the military and who has not by the responses to things like this. Those who think this officer has any right whatsoever to do what he did has never been in the US military. (yes its obvious)))

Ah, once again the horror of having another dude stare at your junk while you're serving in a dangerous job that sends you into war zones.Originally Posted by G.I. Joe
If that's your biggest worry about serving in the military, you have it pretty well. And at any rate, that isn't a good enough reason to ban gays from serving openly. Besides, they can still check out your package whether they're open about their sexuality or not.
"Broadcast their sexuality"? Yes, if gays are allowed to serve openly, I'm sure you'll see drag queens having gay pride parades through the barracks.Originally Posted by G.I. Joe
Why is it OK for heterosexuals to "broadcast their sexuality" in the military?
So you don't actually have a reason for opposing this...you only oppose it because it's what Duh Librhuls want.Originally Posted by G.I. Joe
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.
