    We didn't lose most of our Arabic translators, because they were gay.

    Redress is most likely a guy since Redress was on an aircraft carrier sometime between '87 and '93. Women were not allowed to serve aboard aircraft carriers until 1994.

    However, it doesn't matter because the ban on openly serving homosexuals is not gender specific. The military will not just lift the ban for one gender when it does finally go away, it be lifted for both men and women homosexuals.

    yeah, being gay had absolutely nothing to do with it. If you are arabic, it's almost expected that you be gay. funny that Islam forbids homosexuality but damn near every arabic male practices buggery.

    Um...that is complete bull.

    Arabic males commonly practice a very brotherly and affectionate love with one another but that is not homosexuality. That has a lot more to do with the strict sepration of the sexes in that culture that anything else. Also, most of the Arabic translators who were discharged were not Arabic.

    Nor, did the gay, Arabic translators that were discharged makeup a majority of the Arabic translators in the US military.

    best I can tell, you might need to read links more carefully and with more critical thought involved. I'm just saying . . . .


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I guess if you want to define ****ing each other up the ass as "brotherly and affectionate" you might have a point.

    First of all Redress is a female..............Secondly I know nothing about lesbians in the Navy....My problem is with gay men serving openly aboard ship.......
