    So of those, who allows discrimination lawsuits to be brought against the military?

    I could extrapolate your post to assume you meant gays in the military caused Japan to lose WW2, but I don't think in absolutes like that, so I'll assume you meant something else by your statement.
    You can make of it what you please. I'm just pointing out an historical fact.

    There's never any single factor that results in winning, or losing a war. There were multiple factors that caused the Japanese to lose. However, one prominent factor that caused the Japanese defeat, was the American soldier was a superior fighter.

    Not unless you want to totally cheapen what's been gained. If this happens, the next public opinion poll may not be as favorable.

    They got what they wanted. It's time to be happy with that and let's move forward.

    I assume you are being sarcastic.

    Which has exactly nothing to do with their orientation. By the way, the US had gay soldiers too in WW2 you know, most famously Gore Vidal and that Brigadier under MacArthur.

    By the way, I am not finding any references to gay solders in japan in WW2, can you show me a source. I am kinda curious now.

    I think the factor that we had a bunch of brainy Jews build us a super bomb, might be a tad more promiment.

    I would say the more prominent factor was superior naval and aviation hardware and a larger production base, combined with better maneuvering tactics on the seas. Also, we figured out nukes first.

    I'd also say queers had nothing to do with anything.

    Are you factoring in Pearl Harbor for these "better maneuvering tactics"?

    Why, because, like lesbians, NP is fond of strap-ons too?

    Seriously, though, guess he should be given certain propers. He is here participating on this thread even though he has to eat a lot of crow today.

    Got any numbers on that?

    You'll never find any numbers concerning gays serving in the Japanese Army during WW2. They never had an anti-gay policy, because of their denial of the existance of gays.
