    I was listening to Michael Savage (or whatever his last name is) on my way home from work. (I listen to him for comic relief.) He is so full of himself. Listening to him cut callers off and insult them off the phone is like seeing a baby throw a temper tantrum.

    Anyway, the topic was the military “don’t ask – don’t tell” policy. The caller said that such a policy should be discontinued and that homosexuals should be just as open about their sexual preference as are heterosexuals. Michael asked him what would happen if a gay soldier came onto a straight person in the shower. The reply was that the gay guy would probably get his ass kicked and that a suit would follow. The last question was along the line of “Who would be the winner?”

    The show went to a commercial and then on to a different topic. I was surprised to not hear Michael yell and throw insults at the caller. Anyway, sometimes I wish that I had called on such topics. After I think back to how discourteously and unreasonably Michael has treated other insightful people, I’m glad that I don’t call.

    First of all, I hold gay and straight soldiers with more respect. I doubt that the gay guy would have sexually assaulted the straight guy or that the straight guy would have beat up the gay guy. I remember when a gay guy propositioned me. He even put his hand on my shoulder. I politely backed away and said that I was not interested. He backed away and left.

    Secondarily, I would have said, “Yes. Let gays be just as open as straight people are open about their sexual preference…oh…Tailhook…perhaps they should not be as open.” I would have loved to hear Mike’s reply to such a comment.

    Look. Sexual harassment is sexual harassment no matter if it involves people of the same sex or of the opposite sex. If someone keeps pushing you for sex, then file a complaint. Perhaps the straight soldiers have some insecurity about their sexual identity. They may feel uncomfortable living in close quarters with a gay person. I think that there are ways to work around it and still have team cohesion if such problems would come up. Homosexuals supposedly comprise only 1 or 2 percent of the population anyway, so get a grip – and tell Michael Savage to do the same – before he blows a gasket.

    actually matt, the question was "who would win the lawsuit which would follow IF the straight gay punched the gay guy?". the question wasn't who would win the fight.

    IT was the ONLY time I have been able to digest Savage for any length of time.

    I agree with him completely.

    Imagine you have a staff seargent who is gay. How many do you think he could coerce into sex? I mean, YOUNG 18 year old bright eyed KIDS. Its ripe for abuse.

    You do realize that a vast majority of homosexuals have their first sexual experience as a teen with an adult who preys on them?

    Do you realize the damage ONE staff seargent or higher could inflict by coercing kids into sex with him????

    Look at the catholic church, the gays pushed and pushed for homosexual priests, now they are having all the molestation scandals.

    Do you really want that in our military?

    Talihook only subscribes to MEN only in the military.

    Same with the boy scouts, Gay leaders create problems and molestations. They shouldnt be there.

    ITs working fine with Dont ask, dont tell.

    The LIARS at the yale law school will look for 0ther reasons to stop recruiters from coming onto their campus if they were to ever win this one.

    Then why shouldn't they put all the men, gay or not, and all the women, gay or not, ALTOGETHER into the same barracks, in beds side by side, the same showers, etc.?

    Do you think that would be acceptable to most people? If not, why not?

    I also believe it has been working quite well...for the life of me I cannot understand why the Gay community keeps pushing this issue...if they continue it just may go retrograde and disallow them from the military altogether...and I agree with Mr.P... Matt if ya have a complaint with Michael Savage address him find your cahunas!

    The gay community continues to push this issue because the gay community is basically a puppet to the puppet master behind the scenes - the Far Left - the socialists/communists/anarchists. The Far Left is just using gays to reach its own goals. One of their goals is to weaken and destroy the military.

    Once the gays are no longer useful, the Far Left will just run over them with a :tank:

    (1) I though that since the military has not been meeting its enlistment quotas, it should at least ease up on the “don’t ask – don’t tell policy”. This would be one way to at least keep the soldiers that it has. (If someone is found to be gay, such a discovery should not result in the gay’s immediate dismissal.) Men have their barracks and women have their barracks. Gays can stay with men and Lesbians can stay with women. I would have no problem with rooming with a homosexual. I would simply ask him to leave me alone. I think that practically all soldiers would feel the same way – at least the stable and responsible ones.

    (2) Luv – You seem to be mixing different behaviors. There is child molestation, there is sexual behavior among adults, and there is sexual harassment. I think that the youngest soldier is considered as an adult – old enough to give informed consent. Therefore, the 2 things at issue are sexual harassment and consensual sex. No matter what sexual orientation is involved, if a superior officer continues to pressure a subordinate for sex after the subordinate has said “No”, then the superior officer should be punished.

    (3) My choosing not to call Savage is not due to any lack of “cahunas”. Calling him would simply be a foolish thing to do. Based from my hearing him treat previous callers, it is clear to me that he can’t keep up with rational and logical people. Once he sees that he is loosing a “battle of wits” he let’s loose with emotionally driven rants, hangs up on callers, and then berates them.

    That is one big reason why I like boards such at this one. Hosts allow people who have vastly different viewpoints the time and space to post comments. The monitors do very little, if any editing or removing of rational and intelligent messages. They don’t “hang up on callers” even if they disagree with the caller’s message.

    The reenlistment goals have been WAY surpassed and discussed in detail. That's your job.
