    I wonder if you are ever going to come up with a rational thought?

    OK, that has nothing to do with changing billeting. That's a sexual harassment issue.

    Well before we can even address that, we need a homo to sexually harass you for having such a purty mouth and sweet little behind first.

    No one said they couldn't complain.

    You're the only one who said they could just change their barracks based on their perception of comfort, and what you quoted doesn't say that at all. It says they can complain. Doubtful that complaining will get anywhere, but they certainly have the right to try.

    So you are saying soldiers get to vote on where they are deployed? How about P.T., do they get to vote on that one too

    That is why YES, soldiers have LIMITED RIGHTS.

    If a soldier complains that an officer told him to stand at attention, he would get laughed out of the room.

    I am laughing my ass off at you arguing for the sake of arguing. You know damn well there are certain things that YES, a soldier is told to suck it up and drive are.

    Where do you think that comment came from?

    Did you complain about every order you didn't like even if it was a lawful order? Gimme a break.

    Not only that, but they all seem to refer to him as a cock-sucker. I'm sensing a trend here.

    When you think about it, it's really kind of flattering. The first time a lesbian hit on me, I was a little thrown off my game, and then I thought, "Who wouldn't want to hit this?"

They hold hands ("We're heteros!!!"), the show affection (We're heteros!!!!), they announce their marriages in the papers (Hey, world!!! We're heteros!!!), they have an expectation of acceptance of their husbands and wives (Hey, love my fellow hetero, too!!!!), they have their Valentine's Days (Hallmark recognize us heteros!!!!), they have their weddings (Bring us gifts because we're heteros!!!!), their babyshowers (We made babehz like good heteros!!!!), etc, etc, etc.

    And you want someone to either not serve their country or serve their country in silence and shame using the argument that we should just "shut up"?

    Fvck. That.



    Yeah. I don't like those outward traditional public exhibitions either. I might be wrong but it seems that all that stuff you mentioned is designed to appease affection starved females.

    I have been attached to units that had known but not told gay members in it. I never noticed, they did all those things you suggested and were a cohesive unit.





    yes, there is. If a soldier is made to feel uncomfortable due to sexual harrassment, then they have the right to complain, regardless of his, or her sexual preferrence. I've seen soldiers get written up for running around the barracks nekkid, after their fellow soldiers compalined about it.



    If I ever felt "sexually harrassed" by a dood, I'd punch him. Problem solved.

    I wouldn't punch a chick though, I like them.
