I found it pretty funny

Great story Whammy!
I have had similair experiences. I hope those were not the real names of your personnel though

Most people don't care about your private life as long as you do your job and contribute to a successful mission.

Your point was very well clear that sexual harrassment is not acceptable whether it is woman on man or man on man, or whatever the case.

Well, it has been a few days since I've been able to respond properly, but I'll say it succinctly:

I'm glad that reality is much kinder than the policy states.

Discrimination against homosexuals is not illegal in America. So, according to the statutes, it's not "discrimination." Anyone with half a brain will realize there is, but it's like the U.S.'s treatment of African Americans after the Civil War. Everyone from governors to legislatures to presidents to courts flouted the two constitutional amendments that granted blacks equal rights to whites, but it took another century to get a government to enforce it's own laws.

This time in history is no different. The future will look upon our time as yet another bigoted contradiction. Something to be proud of, yes?
