    And I don't care where a service member sticks thier junk.
    Part of my motivation for joining was I was unemployed and needed a job. Was my "head in the game"?

    My way back mind reading contraption device is in the shop. I'll have to get back to you on that one.



    But a guess, you had a need, you saw an opportunity, weighed it's full impact on your life and made an educated decision.


    You didn't see an opportunity to foment social activism within society. I think that's a little different.

    It's how things pretty much are. if you don't make your service about your genitalia, no one really cares.

    Could you add a poll.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Re: Question for our gay members

    I briefly considered joining the military while I was still in high school. I had a recruiter come to my house and everything. I eventually decided not to as I have ultimately a problem with authority. I don't know whether it's a mental issue with me or what, but I honestly don't think I would mesh well with the military. I have nothing but respect for those who can, though. The only thing that got a bit annoying was the fact that it was very hard to get the recruiters to stop calling and trying to intimidate me over the phone. I suppose that is their job, though.

    Wanting to serve is not activism. Wanting to serve your country, and from doing so gaining some acceptance you don't feel you have is not activism.

    No, though if the OP wants to make a new thread with a poll, I could merge this one into that one I think.

    Personal acceptance or gay peoples acceptance? Maybe I misunderstood you.
