Gays in the Military

Make Them Join

When I first joined the military, we were housed in 18 man rooms. That would have been a problem, if we had gays in the military then. It was unacceptable.

Now however, most people are housed in their own room. This though, is when they are at their home base. When they are deployed, they may be housed together or even in tents or bivouacs and that could be a problem.

So gays, should say they are gay and they should not serve in the regular armed forces regiments. This though would mean only “straights” go out and die for their country, whilst gays stay at home to flourish. This too is wrong.

Gays should be allowed to serve in special regiments in the armed forces that only have gays in them. They should have their own ships, regiments and squadrons.

If, a gay couple, want to claim from their country, they must first be prepared to maybe die for that country. At least one of the two MUST have served in the military in order for them to claim.

The population is growing, yet the amount of gays is growing faster. For obvious reasons, this cannot go on infinitely but it is the current trend. This disproportion is multiplied by the fact that only the straights can serve and die for their country.

To summarize, the military should accept gays but in separate sections. Gays should say they are gay, and then seek to serve.

In the past many people have died protecting their rights in their country, but at that time, it did not include “gay rights”. People deserve to know what rights they may die for and all people entitled to those rights, must be prepared to die to attain them and keep them.

      Chris, I agree. It was having to "buddy" with a left hander on respirator, cannister change, drills in the "chamber" that convinced me. Thanks for the comment.

      I think while we're at it we should have a special unit for left-handed redheads.

      You know how they are, all pale-skinned and prone to sunburn and hard to camouflage during night manuvers. Plus the weapons are all made for right-handers and these lefties have to fumble around and adapt. Don't even get me started on their tendancy to be switch-hitters.

      Yeah, they need their own units and ships and barracks and showers. Damn those red hairs on the shower walls and in the drain.
