if a bigot's own bigotry causes themselves grief then i have no sympathy.

Same thing used to be said about allowing blacks and women into the military. Doesn't anyone care about how uncomfortable the bigots will be?
Give me a break.

Allegory for Jesus
Yeah....fail. "Couples" would not matter in the military, and if gay sex is the most horrifying thing that soldiers are exposed to, they are incredibly lucky.

Prop 8 doesn't imply that, there are gay people in the military already.

The legality of gay marriage does not affect the number of gay people that exist. There will be just as many gay couples out there if they are allowed to marry, it's just that some will celebrate that love through a marriage ceremony.
There will be gay people in the military regardless if they are allowed to marry or not.
And why the hell would it be so difficult anyway? Bigots having a hard time doesn't concern me. They can learn to be more open-minded and will be better off as human beings, or they can suffer.

"If segregation is overturned, it will affect the military. Imagine white men who will be forced to bunk with black couples. Imagine how difficult psychologically it will be for the caucasian men."
Fixed it for you
Also, I think that people who's daily work involves horribly mutilation corpses can deal with a little gay sex (not that there is any).

What does prop 8 have to do with the military? Gay marriage was legal for a few months and nothing bad happened excpet the fundies freaked out.

I think you have your anti-gay legislation mixed up. The one you're thinking of is "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". Please do your research next time; I always hate that you people have more clout than I do when you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

Marriage has nothing to do with it. There will be gay people in the military whether or not their union is legally recognized. There are gay people in the military AT THIS VERY MOMENT. *channels Achmed TDT* Are you scared?

'cause homosexual marriage magically means more people will be gay? What? Even if it did magically make more people gay, it doesn't necessarily mean that every homosexual will inform their peers of their orientation.
Personally, if I was a homosexual and in the military, I'd likely not tell anyone because I wouldn't want to deal with the hassle of bigoted types. Just like I don't want to deal with the hassle of my bigoted missionary family knowing that I'm an atheist, and so don't tell them.

What about the navy and their don't ask don't tell policy?
11/26/2008 1:36:40 AM
How it works in a fundie's head:
List<Gay> tehGuays = new List<Gay>;
tehGuays = null;
11/26/2008 1:38:30 AM
Ummm...are they forced to bunk with hetrosexual couples now?
11/26/2008 2:02:47 AM
If they're that psychologically fragile, they shouldn't be in the military in the first place.
11/26/2008 2:25:34 AM
Well, 1) there are already Gay members of the Armed Forces (that's what that don't ask/don't tell thing is about)
2) Fraternization in barracks is already heavily discouraged (if not an offense), so your argument fails there too

So we're going to have our own Sacred Band of Thebes? Cool.
11/26/2008 2:36:23 AM
Funny, but I don't remember any "gay couple" when I was in the infantry. But that was back in the mid-50's, which may have been before there was any gay.
11/26/2008 2:37:33 AM
Imagine how difficult psychologically it will be for the heterosexual men.
Imagine I am holding the world's tiniest violin, and playing it just for them.
11/26/2008 2:43:30 AM
It's not gay if it's underway
Also, there are a few openly gay people in the military; apparently in the Navy you don't get out automatically if you're gay, you just get a page 13 that states that you're gay, you'll keep it discreet, and your partner won't be in the military.
11/26/2008 2:45:08 AM
Yeah cause... having yourself systematically dehumanized by harsh military behavior training and WAR aren't infinitely more psychologically damaging or anything.
11/26/2008 3:02:22 AM
it can't be any harder than pointing a gun at another human and pulling the trigger, and our soldiers do that all the time
11/26/2008 3:34:56 AM
PLZ THINK OF THE
11/26/2008 3:44:19 AM
Im sorry, but you hate everyone and try to make their lives miserable..but then you want me to have sympathy for you because your hatred is not legislated in the minds of others? Go get fucked.
11/26/2008 3:45:17 AM
If its difficult, they are probably gay themselves. Or bigots.
11/26/2008 4:00:33 AM
Prop 8 took away the right of gays to get married in California, it didn't make us disappear. Prop 8 had nothing to do with gays in the military.
President Obama will likely repeal "Don't Ask Don't Tell" (http://www.tnr.com/politics/story.html?id=501d23ba-e4b1-4e70-ae15-03d05ef546d1) THEN your head can explode. And since when do couples (gay or straight) shack up in the military?
Those poor heterosexual men, tell me, do they still call us gay folks 'sissies'?
