    Repeal Of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Paves Way For Gay Sex Right On Battlefield, Opponents Fantasize

    WASHINGTON—As Congress prepares to allow gay individuals to serve openly in the military, those against the proposed change voiced their concerns Monday, warning the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” could soon lead to strong, strapping American soldiers engaging in mind-blowing homosexual intercourse right on the battlefield.

    “If this is repealed, what’s to stop all-night sex romps from breaking out while U.S. servicemen are hiding in a bunker, or crawling around an irrigation ditch bathed only by the light of the moon, or, say, the dozens of other situations I’ve already thought through in elaborate detail?”,17698/

      Sad as it is to admit, that’s pretty close to what my ex thought. I remember him saying once that he wouldn’t want to be alongside a gay man in a bunker. (He was KANG.) I never could get him to give a coherent reason why. Of course he thought the lesbians he worked and played softball with were just great. Go figure.

      My former USAF son-in-law and I have cussed and discussed this more than once. But then he has racist/bigot tendancies, isn’t registered to vote, and may not have ever had a single original thought.

      I think they’re both a bit over-homophobic.

    As I was working yesterday, I was listening to a news radio show and they are actually having a study done as to how military members feel when taking showers with a group of their fellow soldiers. This had something to do with the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.

    I had to laugh because my first thought went to imagining all these men’s locker rooms in professional sports.

    If there is any more hitting of the buttocks in the locker room than there is on the playing field – then perhaps all this distrust of homosexuals is just a ruse.

    I mean really come on – how many times have we seen grown professional athletes hit another man’s butt as a way of saying ‘way to go’.

    But then they profess to think homosexuals will be the negative influence?

    It’s all about the behavior of people – whether they are homosexual or straight.


    It’s fun! The color test, where you choose the color of the word. 😉

    My first try I only got 50%, then I concentrated and got 100% on my second try.
