Yes, AEON.

All of us gals are just waiting for the perfect moment to pounce on you. You're like McDreamy squared.

what don't you get, aeon? seriously, what don't you get? the fact you present yourself as a sexist pig? that you think women don't belong in equal positions? that women are the ones who should suffer with lack of opportunity because of some idiotic preconceived notion of sexual tension when a man and a woman are in close proximity? your fear that gay men are going to find you attractive, despite you being married and automatically unavailable, as well as, well, lets be honest, your personality probably turns most open minded gay men off anyway??? if they were going to chase a straight man, it would be one with a wonderful open mind, not you. what else don't you get? the fact that women abhor your kind of thinking? that intelligent men who push for equality and rights think your ideas are abhorrent? that they cringe at these views being shared by the military? that GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED DISCRIMINATION IS WHAT MAKES THE U.S SO UTTERLY UNFREE?

what bit are you not getting?

No but you may have to see a woman naked and keep it in your pants.

And obviously men can't do that.

Wait I thought it was the men who couldn't control themselves.

Maybe you should post a pic to show all the women what they are missing, obviously you are irresistable!!!

In fact I just may turn gay.

It was pretty predictable that this would all lead back to women are temptress whores.

Not according to you, and you're irresistable and all knowing.

They live in a constant state of sexual tension, directed at anyone who is not another straight male. I'm surprised straight men can even get through the day. Life must be total hell.


effing brilliant.

sexual orientation can be a choice. if someone put a gun to my head and said "make mad passionate love with aeon or a woman", i'd pick the woman.

what's confusing me is that you shot yourself in the foot with this post many pages ago -- both the UK and Israel allow gay soldiers to serve openly. and there are no problems. and you say tha they are made of the same stuff as the US.

really, what's the problem?

and, to push a bit further, i would argue that racial segregation and outright racism is as ingrained in many parts of the US as homophobia. yet these soldiers who've grown up with racism and segregation are told to hang their prejudices at the door when they enter the army. why is race an unacceptable prejudice, but homophobia is not?

The fact is, they believe it IS a problem. It is one thing for a congressman to pass a bill in order to appear PC. It is quite another to actually serve in a combat arms unit. I suppose it is just something most will never understand.

I won't say there aren't some people in the Infantry that disagree with me. And if a law gets passed that allows openly gay soldiers serve in the Infantry - I'll obey and do my job even if I don't think it is best.

I wonder is my wife would mind if I joined the woman's volleyball team at the JC? And I wonder if the women would mind if I brought 6 of my tallest and most athletic friends. We could dominate like no other!

The point is - some people are simply not meant to serve in certain areas in life. Men shouldn't play women's volleyball, a man in a wheelchair can't compete in the NBA, and openly homosexual men do not fit into the modern Infantry. It really is that simple.

What's the difference in the quality of service between an openly gay soldier and a "don't ask don't tell" gay soldier? I mean, the soldier is still gay. Why do people think that letting them say who they are is going to have a negative impact on cohesion??
