It's a sad world where a nursing mother is controversial but Queen Berrets are openly accepted???

Personally, I don't care what consenting adults do behind closed doors bit flaunting ANY sexual lifestyle publically turns my stomach.

Tack

I'll bite my tongue on this topic, I don't agree whatsoever with what they are doing. We earned those uniforms, they're not parade play-around attire, they're most certainly not a "fashion statement". They're a United States military uniform. If you're going to be a homosexual in the military, conduct yourself with the proper attitude and carry yourself to the same high standard that they expect of you as a person defending our country. Don't get all fruit loopy and dumb like you're taking a tour in a "marital aid" factory. This type of ish makes me sick, I'm glad I EAS'd from the Marines when I did, cause everything has only gone down hill since then. The Corps isn't what it used to be, and I've only been out 7 years. Stuff was most certainly different when I was serving, and I'm sure the Viet Nam Veterans would tell you the same thing about my generation compared to theirs.

I thought certain behaviour was expected when a military person was in uniform. I don't think this would be one of the behaviours that are acceptable to uniformed military person. If they wanted to march with t-shirts that said, "I'm a soldier" or whatever, fine. But NOT in uniform.

This is just me giving my 2 cents.....
I DO NOT agree with the whole don't ask don't tell policy. Have you guys ever been around a gay guy before? It's very uncomfortable to me. So they join, and you have to take a shower butt naked with them..... Now how uncomfortable can that get..... If they want to join then good for them. But if I was in the military I would want to know who swings the other way. Not so I could start any BS with them, just so I could stay away from any weird situation. A feel bad for the men and woman for not knowing who's gay and who's not. But that's just me. Course I was raised in definitely not believing that that stuff is ok. Thank God I live in Oklahoma not California. Sorry for preaching and getting off topic, just had to speak my mind.... well most of my mind anyways. Don't want anyone to get offended.

personally i think they should be court martialed! i agree that what consenting adults do behind closed doors privately, and kept private is one thing, but this is in a full United States military uniform. just way wrong if you ask me.

Pretty much, it seems. I've noticed that nearly every movie & TV show HAS to have a positive image of gays, but it also seems that they go out of their way to take a poke at religion...

The really sad thing is that we all may be guilty of 'hate crimes' for posting on this thread...

I did my time. We had gay men and women in our unit. You know who they were just because you worked so close all the time. I don't care if your gay or not.

I do care however that they were acting unbecoming. I 110% agree with axxe55 on this. Court marital all the way. If I wire the commanding officer of one or more than them I would have them up on charges. At least an art 15 loss of a rank and 1\2 a months pay for two months. 45 day restriction and 45 days extra duty. Painting rocks, pulling weeds, picking up trash and any other hard labor I could find for them. All of it done in their dress uniform.

This is really sad. While in uniform you are not suppose to take action in protests or things of that nature. Because in the uniform you represent America. You are a military member and held to a high standard. It is a disgrace to the uniform that men and women have died in. Wonder what the men from the revolutionary war, and so forth would think about how our men and women in uniform act? Over 450,000 American military members died in world war 2, but these people use that uniform as a protest symbol, instead of a symbol of unity. These people are deviding the service insted of uniting it.
