Furthermore, they're already in the military, they just don't say they're homosexual. Even if we granted your premise that most homosexuals are violent rapists, wouldn't it be better to know who is and who isn't a homosexual? Aren't you at greater risk when it could be anyone in your squad? One second you're dropping the soap, the next your best mate is up in your junk.
Ahh, there's nothing more entertaining than observing the beliefs of people like you
And before you say he did that after the fact,
actions like this were just brewing inside waiting for a reason to "flaunt" it.
its true with everyone who feels slighted thru predjudice.
minorities, women, gays, whatever, it seems to be a common denominator. Give them a reason, and usually just a single person or entity that slights them, not a society at large, and they soap box it.
Because people like you encourage it.
and the battlefield is not the place for this kind of PC to take place.
Its serious business this silly war thing you watch from afar.
You want to serve, you're gay, then fine.
but stfu and serve, dont "flaunt" it, define that any way youd like if it makes you feel better.
We have generalized it for you, its called dont ask dont tell.
Very comforting for the person who has to deploy in their place???They are mostly considered non-deployable and are restricted in where they can be assigned,
You assume that a man having sex with a woman means that he can’t be a homosexual, but to me a man with HIV having unprotected sex with 11 woman means he does not like women.And not everyone with AIDS is gay. In fact, there was a case recently about an airman who knew he was HIV positive and still reportedly had unprotected sex with 11 women without informing them.
Normal men don’t check each other out in the shower...Why is it any different having a straight guy or a guy who you believe is straight check you out than it is to have a gay guy check you out?
Big ears? Long nose?? What you are saying here is that it would be best – in light of so many people not liking homosexuals and wishing them dead – to retain DADT..In fact, there are probably a lot of bigoted people out there who would willing allow a fellow servicemember to die just because they don't like a certain trait of that person.
First of all if one man rapes another man the rapist is a homosexual. Second, why would a person who doesn’t like being raped put him military service above justice for himself and others who may suffer the same treatment? Has it been your experience that stab victims are questioned about their sexual preference? I suppose that motive may be an issue but also doubt that many of these cases would get out of the administrative process and go to trial.Repealing DADT means the victim could come forward about it without fearing being discharged.
according to the "victim", his roommate had been in the habit of coming home drunk and raping him for about six months. during the most recent instance, the roommate also beat him up. When I asked the guy why he waited so long to report it he said, "Well, I really didn't mind the sex. But when he started beating me up, I had to draw the line somewhere."
Roommate charged with assault, since the victim admitted he didn't mind the sex.
Victim charged with violating article 125, since he admitted he didn't mind the sex.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
pretend your listening, hows that?
Dont ask dont tell means just that. In the sense that you know the line not to cross.
Again, I am a devout Christain, and mentioning I am going to Sunday prayer over at the Chaplains tent, or saying "thank the good lord" before I eat, or mentioning my church back home is one thing.
Using that I am a devout Christain to gain attention, or to make some kind of unecessary point is another.
I've served with known atheists, known because they once mentioned it in conversation. And thats fine, it's accepted, still a good soldier, trusted, respected.
But if he talks about it in a look at me look at me kind of way,
or claims he wants someone punished because they dont agree with his beliefs then he's got trouble, trouble he asked for.
I'm speaking reality, I notice most liberals, on this subject are speaking of some sort of perfect world that just doesnt exist, on the battlefield, they're kids, for the most part. And teaching them to be PC is not the militarys job. We have enough troubles without worrying if someones feelings are being hurt.
Can you grasp that?
Look, gays are not out to get attention for the most part, gays simply want to be able to serve without worrying they will be seen walking hand in hand with their partner at the mall(yes, people have been discharged for that under DADT). They want to be free to put up a picture of their partner on Facebook(yes, they can get discharged under DADT for that). They want to be free to email their partner and say "I love you" without worrying about being discharged(yes, you can get discharged for that under DADT). They want to bring their partner to command events that family is allowed to attend. Gays just want to be treated just like every one else.
I'm sorry but I dont know how else to put this except to be blundt.
the military operates under a different set of rules. The UCMJ allows you to be executed if you endanger the lives of fellow soldiers.
at their discretion. These guidelines wouldnt be tolerted in civilian court either.
If the military feels being openly gay interferes with the day to day operations in combat situations, then we are sorry.
This conversation has been in many circles, and I can tell you if there was a draft, there are gays that would use dodt to get out of serving.
So maybe you should refocus your efforts if your point is to distinguish right from wrong.
The militarys rules are very obvious and blundt up front.
