    its bad enough we spend hours upon hours each yr dealing with females and MEO and what to say and not to say i cannot imagine the millions of hours that will take place when they allow ***s to openly walk around and prance in the service

    the amount of man hours and money will be insane
    You've got to be ****ing kidding me.

    That's very possible. But again, it proves my point. It's unstable; in this case, for both of us. It just causes problems, and that's all I'm trying to get at. That's why the military has the policy it does, to avoid these conflicts.

    No, he's not. They already build extra facilities for women and spend time telling you how you must behave around them. What's going to happen when people are allowed to be openly gay in the service?

  4. This is why this really irritates the hell out of me.

    Unfortunately military policy is written by civilians, most of whom never have served, and dont know what it feels like having to be in such close quarters in hostile situations.

    If this was up to the service members themselves, it would not be an issue. My rationale is the norm in the US Military, and make them feel comfortable, especially in a time of war is paramount. Rather than appeasing the public eye, which is done far to often.

    A kinder gentler military is what we have become.

    I was talking about the statement itself, not whether it was valid or not. I have never served, and you, DA, and OB may be right, but does that mean he has to express himself like some ignorant backwater retard?

    Maybe I missed it, but does being in the Military qualify you to set the clock back 50 years and break out the white caps and robes? Jesus, he just had to include jews and blacks and we could have crowned him the grandmaster.

    Have you considered that these facilities are built BECAUSE of attitudes and ridiculous statements like that?

    And what irritates the hell out of me is that often times U.S., Soldiers assume being in the Military gives them a free-pass to say whatever about whomever they want; I don't need to serve to spot a ridiculous statement like that.

    That is like saying I must be a Doctor to spot that I have a cold.

    No, but it doesn't mean he has to be PC either. I know why I am ignorant, and an ass about it... it is because this kind of sh*t is being shoved down our throats day in and day out. So a certain level of hostility is expected.

    I honestly dont care what gays/homosexuals (Whatever people are calling it these days) do. Place it in my life, and I will get a voice... which in effect is what will happen if forced upon the service members.

  8. So our infants should be free to grow up...as long as they don't grow up gay, apparently.

    In 2012 we're not the land of the free; however, the terrorists still hate our freedom.

    Nice.


  9. Wow, strong closet homosexuality in this thread. You guys spend way too much time thinking about other men and their desires. When I served in the military, I worked with guys I knew were gay... and I never really gave it much thought.

    Btw... I stopped reading that ultra-conservative nonsense when it mentioned that the Boy Scouts disbanded to keep homosexuals from sleeping in tents with little boys. I guess I shouldn't be allowed to teach in a 5th grade classroom then, 'cause I have 14 female students... and there is nothing to keep me from molesting them all. Oh wait... my sexuality has nothing to do with pedophilia.

    Reading this thread reminds me of why I would never move back to a red state. I cherish my intelligence.

    HA... its not the military that gives me a free pass... it is the first amendment. Love it or hate it. I'd say what I want regardless of the uniform my friend.

    In fact I am not even an ultra conservative. But I do have beliefs, which is what a lot of people seem to lack these days. Instead, go with what the majority is doing.

    And if you haven't figure it out, where you live has no bearing on the level of intelligence you possess.

    You probably would, but that is irrelevant, and not the issue. You said:

    Unfortunately military policy is written by civilians, most of whom never have served, and dont know what it feels like having to be in such close quarters in hostile situations.
    Which is essentially telling me I am unqualified to tell you whether you are an ignorant bigot or not (not you, but Military in general).

    I think my meaning was not conveyed correctly. I am not saying you can't say your piece about me or anyone else for that matter. I was more aiming at the debate at hand, that gays should be allowed to openly serve. In my mind, we the service members should make that decision, not the old crusties up in congress that know nothing about what happens on ground zero.

    So... one's environment has no bearing on his intelligence? Wow. Okay, so Piaget, Erikson, and Vygotsky all just rolled over in their graves.

    With that, I bid you good day.

    Mullet, why bother?

    The red-tape of 'PC bureaucracy can become infuriating'; trust me, I know this as much or more than you: I live in an 'officially' BiLingual country with a sub-population afforded Constitutional 'distinctness' despite the fact they wish to separate at every turn. That being said, I still do not call the Quebec-French 'frogs' because I do not see the need to degrade people whom are not like me. If you do, that is your prerogative.

    That is fine, and I agree to an extent, but that does not justify that level of ignorance. In fact, it justifies the very actions you appear to be rallying against; take a step back and afford these people the possibility that they do want to be degraded while serving their country just like you; then, take a further step back and consider that your hostilities contribute to the very issue you are hostile towards.

  18. Oh, the irony of the video I'm posting...


  19. Well that is just funny.

  20. My problem with homosexuals in the military is that men are treated as if they do not have the ability to control their sexual urges and are therefor separated from their female counterparts. they can't room together, shower together and on a lot of installations they can't be on each other's floors.

    Why is this considered okay and normal but the minute you question a homosexuals's ability to control themselves in the same situations, it's considered a phobia? It's the double standard that pisses me off.

    This is fundamentally ridiculous as well, and I agree. Special interest groups tend toward lobbying for special considerations as opposed to honest equality; favoring the needs and desires of a single group over another can create hostility - such as displayed in this thread.

    However, even with that being said, it still does not justify being that ignorant, or that disrespectful to another individual's lifestyle.

    So it is okay to allow them a level of comfort that I am to no longer afforded? Bottom line, it is one way or the other... there really is no median in this issue (well the median could be the dont ask dont tell policy). If allowed to be openly gay, I am not longer comfortable in my surroundings.

    As for the degrading remarks, I will retract that. Again, being forcefed the PC BS gets irritatin.

    I'm convinced you are gay. If you seek cognitive therapy, a doctor will embrace you and tell you it's not your fault, or even a conscious decision. You'll get angry at first, cry loudly for a bit, and then you'll accept who you are. At least, that's how it works in the movies.

    This may surprise, but homosexuals are not a marauding band of butt-hole raiders, lying in wait to pillage your sweet anal virginity at every turn. It is hard to imagine, but they like other homosexuals!

    That was definitely crossing the line. When have I ever made a personal attack towards anyone in this thread?
