Ask, Tell, Kill

May 28, 2010

BIG BIG FAN of the Radical Gay Agenda here. But. The military? Really? Is this really something to get excited over? Once you voluntarily sign up for an occupation where your primary function is, directly or indirectly killing people, need we worry so much about the morality of whether your employer demands you keep your sexuality in the closet?

Also, I was kind of hoping DADT would remain an out for my kids if the draft should come back: they’d have had a chance to gay it up and get kicked out.

    I blame the spectacle.

    I’ve been teaching the boy child to act seriously mentally ill should the draft be re-enacted. Specifically, I’m teaching him how to pretend he is a messiah for the the cult of the flying spaghetti monster.

    I’m not allowed into Canada, but my wife already has her route to Montreal planned, if the draft is re-enacted for whatever war the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama-Etc Continuum rums up next.

    When the draft was a serious threat to me (four decades ago) I got a passport in case I had to flee the country, but due to a combination of circumstances I never actually used it – it expired without a stamp in it.

    Who knows if it’s good or bad?

    i’d be glad to head for Canada now, if the family would have it.

    Red Queen, indeed. i always did think Corporal Klinger was the truest hero on television’s M-A-S-H. =P

    The only good thing about the demise of DADT is that it would be a step on the road, the same way ending Jim Crow in the military was. But yeah, the idea of wow we can be gay and still get to kill people in the service of the state doesn’t seem like a real reason to get excited.

    On a side note, Corporal Klinger was based on Lenny Bruce who as the tale is told wore a dress to a draft physical and was rejected.

    Jimi Hendrix apparently fake-gayed his way out of the army, rather than being released for a hurt ankle as long believed, according to (if I recall correctly) declassified docs released a couple years ago.

    I think the primary purpose of being in the military is more to terrorize than kill, the latter being a means to the former.

    All Lenny Bruce stories are true.
