Re: Gay Veteran talks to Mitt Romney
I had a case where a CS2 (E5/navy) was caught taking pictures in the men's shower in our gym. This was before DADT was repealed. He just put on E5 like a week ago; they ripped that shit off and gave him 45/45 restriction and half month's pay.
Right. The military is a testosterone-laden entity. It's always been that way, and will forever be that way. It's a man's world. When you have a man that violates the trust of those men, and BELIEVE ME, some of those guys will not trust any homosexual person PERIOD, they're automatically outcasts. You can't have an Army Infantry unit full of straight guys and toss in 3 openly gay guys without the majority of the straight ones being uncomfortable. You guys are literally like this || in the field. Nut to butt for rations and stuff in basic and AIT. You going to single out the gay guy and have him stand a little further back because the straight guy in front of him doesn't want to be touched by a homosexual? No, you can't do that. You treat everyone the same.
Of course, when it gets to the point of it interfering a mission, the same way a male to a female can interfere with a mission already, then it should dealt with in an equal way, without giving a gay man more of punishment (ie. getting kicked out).
Totally agree here. There is no room for sexual assault in the military. Period.
