I guess we just disagree. I don’t like having American soldiers on TV promoting the gay agenda as if it’s a good thing whether Obama calls it legal or not.

What I think it has to with is everything. Had a straight soldier got up there and said “I am against the DADT repeal” they would quickly find themselves pushing a broom on a flightline until they made a mistake that got them courtmartialed or ‘pressured’ by the brass to ‘move on’ from military service.

But they know better. So we civvies have to defend those who defend us - in whatever small ways we can. It disgusts me that our soldiers are put in such a position to begin with. As I said earlier, just my opinion.

I don’t see what asking the question has to do with promoting an agenda. I don’t understand the fear and whining victimization about being straight—straights can handle ourselves and don’t fear the weirdos (sorry) somehow perverting us just by existing. I don’t see any evidence of straights in the military or anywhere else being victimized just because the media are full of gays.

Somehow heterosexuality has managed to survive a long, long time without all this boo hooing about how we’re being ‘victimized.’

I respect soldiers. Asking a question as this one did wasn’t pushing an agenda.

Conservatives used to be about “you do your thing, just don’t stop me from doing mine” and “I don’t agree with what you say, but I respect your right to say it.”

Now? It’s all about how we can portray ourselves as victims the way we have always hated the libs for doing.

I’m no victim of the gay agenda, and neither are any straights I know. A lot of this comes from this fear that gays are somehow plotting against the rest of us on a personal level, which makes me think some people have unresolved stuff they have to deal with.

This has nothing to do with imposing the gay agenda in schools or giving gays special rights, which of course we can all agree is vile and must be fought. But a soldier asking a simple questions?

Nope. That doesn’t ‘victimize’ anyone, and I must have missed where mainstream Americans aren’t allowed to express themselves.

But the gays are probably dancing in the streets over those boos tonight. To those who booed, I’d actually question whose side they’re on, because they just gave the gays ammo money can’t buy, and what did they gain for us with their childish TV-audience behavior? Absolutely nothing.
