Remember, folks: whenever a woman says "die for me because you are a man," just look her in the eye and say "my body, my choice."

We Got Over That a While Ago...

I was pleased to see not too much hoopla over DADT becoming history.  I guess all the vitriol lost some steam in the face of  so many blank stares from people who wonder what the hell the big deal is.  It seems that most of the people who object to it are non-military, a few retired military, and church representatives within the military.  I asked Lance Criminal (in his new gray belt) what scuttlebutt says, do the rank and file really care?  (As if they don't know they've been serving alongside gays the whole time...)  His answer:

"We got over that a while ago."

Well said, young man, well said.  Do you suppose the military has finally come to the end of the list of patriotic, competent, honorable, qualified candidates to exclude?  Now, if only Churchianity had so much courage.

  1. Me thanks that gays and Churchianity have something in common. They both suck. Just in different ways.

  2. In all my Army and N. Guard years, I never cared who or what somebody was- AS LONG AS THEY COULD DO THE JOB!
    We had a few of those we didn't ask about in Iraq and one of them was the BEST Humvee driver I ever saw--- I always picked her as my driver when I worked with that team.

  3. All depends on the individual's behavior and the leadership at the squad and platoon level.

  4. Yep, it does, just like gender and race.

  5. I had a second in command that was gay, obviously no one knew, but we were in a cockpit long enough I figured it out. Best officer I flew with, long since retired. I too am glad there wasn't much fuss. There are many things that could prevent one from serving, what you do in the privacy of your home should not be one of them.
