Often the stuff MSgt posts is pretty sensible. This is not the case today, unfortunately.
Also, I wonder how long until the military recognizes homosexual marriages.
Nowhere does it say that the military has to recognize gay marriages.The rest of the country maintains a homosexual's spousal preference in its legal codes?
Defense of Marriage Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaYou are evading. The military already designates Next of Kin. I would think that you would be aware of the significance of a RED when it comes to not just next of kin, but "spousal rights."
Notice that the federal government does not recognize SSM.
Yes there are in the military. I could call my hispanic bud in the navy a wetback cuz he knew I was joking with him. That is the difference. If I insult some ones sexuality at work(well, my last job, unemployed sorta atm), and they take offense, I will face discipline."Sometimes?" "Probably?" There is no sometimes and probably in the military. One more example on how we will be forced to maintain the higher standard so that lower standards in the civilian sector can be over looked.
The military is not being forced to integrate women or blacks, they are being forced to integrate gays. I already covered your mistaken beliefs about SSM. The rest is already the case in the civilian world. Sorry, but the world moved past you all.You are still evading the truth. When the military was forced to integrate women and blacks, the civilian debates of acceptance was already happening. In both events, the military was "behind," but it was the military that led. This is the same. Spousal preference in the military will be a fact of law before they are allowed to marry in civilian courts.
Gays will be where ever they are ordered to be. Remember, the first casualty of the in the Iraq war was gay.And besides, it's gays that are being in the rear.
Personally, I wish that they would recognize gay spouses completely as dependents, but it most likely won't happen til DOMA goes down.
As far as the civilian vs. military acceptance of homosexuality, I think the military is more in the middle on this one. There are a lot of businesses that do recognize a gay person's significant other under benefits, but there are still more that don't. And there are many states that protect a person from being fired because they are gay, but there are some states that don't or have laws that say a business doesn't have to state why a person was fired. It all depends on what part of the country you are in and/or what business you are comparing the military to as to whether or not they are behind or ahead in this policy.
