    No. In fact, it only applies while in uniform. Plus, there are several times in uniform when it completely okay to kiss your significant other (of the opposite sex, until DADT is officially repealed, anyway), such as homecoming or military ball. And, it is highly unlikely (it happens, but is very rare) that any punishment will be given to someone for simply kissing their wife while in uniform. Most often, the military member will simply be given a warning not to do it.

    Re: Why are many people grossed out by homosexuality?

    I read somewhere that when you don't ask the question suggestively, by only providing an "either/or" choice, but rather ask people "on a scale from 0 (hetero) to 100 (homo), where would you place yourself?", then by far most people don't chose either extreme, but somewhere in the middle.

    And other cultures/past European cultures defined "love" differently than we do today. Loving affection between members of the same sex was acceptable under certain cultural conditions, even if sex was not necessarily acceptable.

    So I believe most of it is culturally conditioned, even if most people probably have a natural tendency towards a particular sex.

    It's funny. Listing to Jerry reminds me of those early 19th century people who said things like, "Those negro slaves have nothing to complain about because they would be living like savages if not for us."

    Perspective is an interesting thing.

    So, this guy:



    should have been punished for a public display of affection? He was in uniform, after all.

    What makes your getting harassed for being gay any worse or more hurtful or damaging to emotions then someone being made fun of for being a geek? For being fat? For being poor? For being rich? For being smart? For being akward around the opposite sex? For being a virgin? For being a member of the band? For being a red head? For being a blonde? For being short? For being southern? For being northern? For your parents job? For your parent being in prison? For your siblings actions?
    Because being gay is considered worse than all of the above. When you want to truly insult someone you call them a faggot.

    Christians have an opinion, but we don't seek you out and kill you. Our churches even preach tolerance, so most of us don't even make an issue of it verbally.

    The level of crime gays experience in America is not significantly greater then the level of crime anyone else in America experiences.

    You're nothing special. In fact, the level of crime gays endure being relatively the same as everyone else is one thing that makes you equal to everyone else.
    Yeah, when the cops beat the **** out of a homosexual does that show up in the crime rate? It used to be done openly just as recently as 30-35 years ago, but police brutality against homosexuals is still fairly high.

    I could go on and on. I'm not saying homosexuals are not harassed, or that its not a bad thing, but I do understand a bit of Jerry in regards to the "woe is me no one understands how horrible and mean people pick on us" things as if somehow, someway, homosexuals are special snowflakes that are the only people in this country who are picked on for things they don't actively tangably choose.
    I wasnt arguing that certain types of harassment are worse then others. Being beat up for something is just as bad as being beat up for something else. But the frequency of it happening is certainly nothing to scoff at nor is the fact that a large percentage of lgbt people are killed for being lgbt and most of the types of people you listed arnt.
