Many of the men sat at the same table during most meals. And the entire boat was pretty sure that the Legal Officer was gay.

    Of course, I have also heard stories from my husband about getting hit on while he was on the LHD by sailors. And I did have a Marine on an LHD come out to his buddy on my balcony in Hawaii. That was funny. My sister had brought them home (she wanted to get with the one who wasn't gay). The straight one's reaction was more of "why do all the marines who are gay come out to me".
    That line cracked me up!

    Your husband is on an LHD? Those look so cool. I really want to see their deck in operation, see how it works.

    Transgender used to be one sex and now is another, or wants to be one sex, and is another...I think. The whole sex-change operation bit?

    Gays have no desire to change sex.

    Gender Identity has nothing to do with sexual orientation. One can be transgender and straight, gay/lesbian, bi. The two aren't really connected.

    Based on my very limited observation, one co-worker, the trans gender person is more conflicted by comparison. Imagine a man becoming a woman surgically but body building to the point of looking like a man again...even her children were confused about it...
    plus she wanted to talk about it too much. We co-workers weren't interested in the situation, but she thought we were...

    I'm gonna get the bubbly ready for the final vote at 3pm. They only need a simple majority now and the Dems alone should have it. With Republicans taking virtual control for the next 2-4 years, gay rights advocates are not going to see many victories over the next few years. I suspect if gay rights advocates have any major court victories then 2012 will be like 2008 in that a central focus will be a amendment to the Constitution banning gay marriage.

    So what about gays who like to occasionally crossdress. Are they ok?

    As ok as strait people who like to crossdress. Doesn't bother me in the least, but then again I knew the staff at a bar that featured cross dressing entertainment in Detroit when I was young.

    Edit to add: Just to be clear, restrictions on crossdressing in the navy do not need to change(I am sure there are some, at least involving uniforms and onbase). Showing up to work in the other sex's uniform won't work. This is however, an entirely different issue from DADT and gays in the military.

    This would not be possible without conservative support like mine. Don't make this a conservative/leftist issue or conservatives who support you will be forced to eat spip by our fellow conservatives.
