(CNN) -- A sailor is accusing the Navy of baselessly trying to discharge him for "unprofessional conduct" in an effort to get around the recent "don't ask, don't tell" repeal, after being found asleep in the same bed with another male sailor.

Is that what “I got your back man” means? ;-)
And so it begins...
Sodomy is still against the UCMJ.
Depends on if she were his wife or not.
Captain Ned: "Now, men, I run a mans' ship. I will run it in a manful and masculine way! I will tolerate no men under my command who act in such a way so as to discredit their manhood and manliness! Do I make myself clear?"
Miles Cowperthwaite V/O: "If there were any doubts as to Captain Ned's severity, they were quickly dispelled that very afternoon, when a scuffle broke out on deck."
[ Spunk approaches a Sailor tanning ]
First Mate Spunk: That's my tanning spot! you! You're in my spot! That's my spot!
Sailor #1: You are daft! I've been here all morning. Now, run along, you are blocking my sun.
First Mate Spunk: Don't you give me any back-sass, you tan tease!
[ fight breaks out; Captain Ned intervenes ]
Captain Ned: Is this how men act on a man's ship? Where is your manliness? Fighting on deck is a serious breach on my articles of strict discipline! I'm afraid the guilty party is in for a very severe punishment!
Sailor #1: Captain.. I did indeed take Mr. Spunk's spot. I'm ready to accept my punishment..
First Mate Spunk: Captain! I threw the first blow. If anyone is to be punished, let it be me. I ask only that whatever you do, please don't put me in a tight-fitting Lassie costume and make me eat from a monogrammed dog dish.
Sailor #2: [ entering ] Captain, I encouraged this fight - punish me! Make me wear nipple-pinching clothespins, sir!
Sailor #3: [ entering ] Me, Captain! Punish me!
Captain Ned: Stop! I've heard enough! Your manly admission of guilt is most manful. However, as your Captain, it is I who must bear the full masculine responsibility! And therefore, I will be punished. Spunk! Take me alone! I want a boiling oil rub..
Wouldn’t it be the same sort of offense in a coed Navy? What’s the problem?
The law says you can’t be discriminated against because of your sexual orientation.
Fraternization among enlisted personnel, is still illegal, regardless of who does it with whom.
That’s what the dumbass in the Navy forgot. I don’t care if you here straight or gay, when you sign up, you obey the rules and if you don’t, you’re out of the service!
And this, dear sir, is what the Communists, aided by the Gay Lobby, wants to overturn.
The ruination of all military order, instigated by endless lawsuits for perceived wrongs, with the eventual goal of the internal rot of the military.
Exactly my point.
All the law says is you can’t be discriminated on account of your sexual orientation.
It does not say you can use it an excuse to flout military discipline or to commit sodomy and other offenses against the Uniform Code Of Military Justice.
I think when Congress voted to end DADT, I think most Americans think gays don’t deserve to be persecuted or discriminated against but I also think they don’t want them given special privileges in our military service.
We Americans believe in equal treatment under the law and that doesn’t change with the repeal of DADT. It just brings things into the open. Gays now have no grounds to complain they are being treated differently from other service people. The same rules apply to them that should apply to straight people.
The same rule would apply if the sailor was caught sleeping with a woman. In my opinion, the Navy is just even handedly enforcing the law.
I’ll tell the Left good luck with making sodomy legal in the military any time soon.
That’s a harder sell than equal rights for gays.
This crap more than anything else will force the return of the Selective Service Draft.
Your post is correct.
As a former Nuke sub sailor, I learned quickly that the Navy had many ways to get rid of those whom they thought were not good for the Navy. Once you sign on that dotted line, you better pay close attention to the rules, because if you don’t, they will come back to hurt you.
Now, whether this guy is a homosexual or not, it’s obvious his roomate was bothered by him and his actions and he did violate the rule on professionalism in the barracks, so punishment is warranted. By PO Jones fighting this, it won’t go well for him, even if he “wins”. The Navy aint fair, but then neither is life.
My son is currently in the Army and I asked him about what he thought about the removal of DADT and he said something along the lines of “if they think you are gay, they’ll crush you until you quit for some other reason.” Now that’s was his opinion, not official Army policy, but it follows what I saw when I was in the Navy back in the 80’s.
You probably don’t want to then...
However, there is another version with the lyrics....
My dad was a member of the Fighting 69th in WWII. It’s startling to see the 69th in a satirical logo like that, funny though it may be.
No offense intended.
I just saw that on the net and thought it was humorous so reposted it.
I didn't know there was a real fighting 69th. But looked it up and sure enough - there it was:
"The 69th Infantry Regiment is a military unit from New York City, part of the New York Army National Guard. It is known as the Fighting Sixty-Ninth, a name said to have been given to it by Robert E. Lee during the Civil War."There was even a motion picture named the "The Fighting 69th" starring James Cagney, Pat O'Brien, and George Brent:
