    You think sex should be part of a military? I don't as I believe it should be about defending this nation.

    I think whatever makes this country great and different should be representing us on the battlefield.

    Otherwise we are just same.

    It’s about being human, and the rights all Americans fight for – on and off the battlefield.

    Which is also done off and on a battlefield.

    I doubt that social cons are becoming more irrelevant.
    Sodomy is still prosecutable for military personal.
    That law needs to change on a Federal level.


    Gays In Military: 'Inclusion Without Equality Is Incomplete'

    "Title 10 of the U.S. Code, which pertains to the armed forces. It defines a spouse as a person of the opposite sex when it comes to military benefits.
    Together the two laws work to bar gay and lesbian couples from many of the military benefits enjoyed by straight couples"


    Clinton was a social con?

    You really think that this woman made it that far, and everyone didn't already know?

    Here's the gag about DADT. The only people actually getting discharged under it were the ones who wanted out and the ones the military really wanted to get rid of because they were otherwise problems.

    And that was pretty much the case before DADT, really. You didn't press the issue unless they made a big deal out of it.

    So if simply being able to show a picture of your family to your Commanding Officer is "sex in the military", can we assume you...


    Support heterosexuals not showing pictures of loved ones to others in their command, because it brings sex into the military,

    Support heterosexuals not being able to wear wedding rings, because it brings sex into the military,

    Support heterosexuals not being able to marry in base Chapels, because it brings sex into the military,

    Support heterosexuals not receiving special pay and allowances simply for having a spouse, because it brings sex into the military,

    Support heterosexual not receiving special weight allowsances simply for having a spouse when on permanent change of station orders, because it brings sex into the military,

    Support heterosexuals not having the military sponsor spouses on PCS moves and paying for spouses travel, because it brings sex into the military,

    Support the spouses of heterosexuals being denied treatment at military medical facilities, because it brings sex into the military.​

    You don't think soldiers and sailors haven't been fucking their way through life just like the rest of us?

    Sex is, and always has been, part of everything. Acknowledgement of that fact is a factor that will set us free as a nation.
