    Yes - it would - if they were found guilty of excessive use of force or faced a judgement of some nature. . . it would be with thoes statistics.

    Statistics are what's been filed or reported - they do not account for what hasn't be reported. . .which means that if two people are in a fight and there are no charges filed - there's no statistical data for that as well.

    faggot today is like calling someone a bitch or a bastard. most people don't really get that worked up about it. if you really want to insult someone...... call them a Christian

    Maybe for your particular unit, but my parents were married in 1979, while they were both in the Army and both stationed in Germany. I'm pretty sure they could kiss in public, since they have pics of them at their wedding kissing. And my uncle was in the Army during the 80s, when he got married also.

    The rules, overall, have not changed. If you are trying to say that some part is different, then you should probably specify exactly what it is, instead of acting like your exagerated statement of "I cannot kiss my wife in public without being punished by the military" is true.

    I do agree that in many cases calling someone a faggot is just a generic insult but in other cases it is meant to imply being gay is a bad thing.

    My "jab at gay people" does however make a point, tho one they like to minimize. They cannot - CAN NOT - reproduce.

    Find a judge who can fix that one and I'll convert.

    No suit papers are forthcoming, Mistress. I'm sorry to have disappointed you.
    Another point that you ALWAYS miss. Procreation is not a requirement for marriage.

    You make this easy by making the same mistakes over and over.

    Call them an inconsiderate Harley rider?

    Seriously though, while "fag" and "gay" are used as insults and slurs, the meaning has changed in many people's minds. Most people now use it to mean lame or sucks, rather than as a reference to sexual preference.

    This is just demonstrating that you have no clue. I've already explained the difference between a parent and a DNA donor. Adoption doesn't mean something went wrong. It's a choice. And, if an adopted child wonders about their biological parent... so what?

    just as true as saying "I was fired because someone saw me kissing my gay lover"

    funny how all your objections to PDA seem to include weddings and other special events. I was in a military wedding and got to hit the chaplain's new wife across her ass with a saber. lot's of things that happen at weddings would be against regulations at other times.
