Let's Talk About Gays in the Military

There are gays in the military. Have you noticed?

And what’s the problem?

Apparently, none.

It was all homophobia.

And the younger you are, the harder you don’t care about any of it.

Time heals everything. Until, of course, the grand explosion. But we’ll be a digitally based or gamma ray species by then—

Of course, after the grand explosion of our sun, time will pass and there could eventually be the super-cooling-condensing that is the reverse of the Big Bang, to even things out, cosmically (which only makes sense—Jungian duality commands it)---but by then, maybe we will have become a species that can withstand condensing and then the inevitable see-saw neo-Big Bang explosion.

Or we won’t exist at all, soon enough, and there will have been a huge series of species that will have replaced us in unimaginable ways. And so time did heal everything, or something.

And there are gays in the military. Ho-hum?

Let ‘em breathe. Out loud.

Someone’s gotta translate all that Arabic between now and what will be.

My favorite argument is "Now isn't the right time." Like the middle of two wars is a good time to turn people away from military service because of the genitalia they prefer in their down time.

Here's the thing: it is ILLEGAL at pretty much any company in America to discriminate on race, gender, age and sexual orientation. So why is the nation's BIGGEST EMPLOYER allowed to discriminate? Let's drag their ass into a civil court!

How can they even begin to justify this?

Oh? What's that you say? You need more bodies? Oh, well, that makes sense then.
