I just retired last year, and can remember when the Stars and Stripes store stopped selling girly magazines in Japan. (1980’s?)
How is this any different than the stores “promoting deviant behavior”?
Man am I ever glad I am gone before we have to have sensitivity classes conducted for gay service members, gay magazines, and probably gay clubs on base supported by MWR.
When I was in Iraq as a navy hospital corpsman, in a marine infantry battation, a friend of mine sent me a Christmas present that included porno magazines. When I wanted to send a box to myself, a mail clerk told me that, because of Iraqi porno laws, Americans aren’t allowed to mail adult material. I said, “Why can someone send those magazines into Iraq, but I can’t mail them out of Iraq?” He said, “I don’t know. Someone else made the rules, and they didn’t tell me why.”
