Gay students graduate openly at military academies (barf)
seeBS News ^ | May 27, 2012 | Michael Hill

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Gay students at America's military service academies are wrapping up the first year when they no longer had to hide their sexual orientation, benefiting from the end of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that used to bar them from seemingly ordinary activities like taking their partners openly to graduation events.

For the first time, gay students at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis were able to take a same-sex date to the academy's Ring Dance for third-year midshipmen. The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., officially recognized a club for gay students this month. And gay cadets at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., are relieved they no longer have to worry about revealing their sexuality.
.
.
Official recognition by the Air Force school in May of the social club Spectrum means gay students there won't have to meet underground anymore.

Students and gay alumni also say the repeal is creating professional benefits by opening doors to mentorship possibilities. Being open about their orientation gives students and experienced military personal one more common experience that can foster a mentoring relationship, they said.
.
.
At West Point, the alumni gay advocacy group Knights Out was able to hold the first installment in March of what is intended to be an annual dinner in recognition of gay and lesbian graduates and cadets. Cadet Kaitlyn Kelly was among the dozens of cadets who attended the privately sponsored dinner. The 22-year-old Chicago resident was finally able to openly introduce her civilian girlfriend at an event marking 100 days before graduation.

Can a cadet bring his five fiancees to the dance? What if is his date is his stepsister? Will the “tolerance” crowd support him?

Not just America.

It is game over for all of civilization.

I told my children to never have children of their own; the wolrd is going to be a vile cesspool for centuries to come.

Throughout history, culture and the military have dealt with queers. Darwinism tends to work in unanticipated ways both in the barracks and on the battlefield.

Yes, the homosexuals are so proud of their chosen behaviour that they hide behind euphemisms for it.

The day the DADT repeal became law was the day I began recommending AGAINST military service for young people in my circle of friends and family.

The military was the last group standing vs. the rapid perverting of American culture. No more.

First, the subjects in your painting have too much clothes. When homosexuals march or plant flags they’re more colorful and less dressed.

Secondly - from seemingly ordinary activities - doesn’t include the mental illness that is homosexuality. There isn’t a “gay” gene, but their is an environmental, psychosocial or chemical reason for homosexuality. Instead of treating it we’re cultivating it.

Imagine as a therapist a client comes to you indicating that they love to stick things in their rectum. Do you call them sane and send them on their way?

The title should read, "Gays graduate conspicuously"... not "openly". This has been about being uniquely absurd and using "in your face" techniques to get special recognition for unearned merit.

Yeah...you’re right. “Gay”, “queer”, “homosexual”, etc are all words they use interchangeably (basically like we do with “straight” and “heterosexual”). Do you really think people don’t know that “gay” is used to refer to homosexuals though and that you needed to tell us?

Deeply, deeply ashamed.

I imagine, like myself, oldtimer can remember listening to this theme song on his family’s TV, and not thinking about guys boo-fooing one another.

“Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones.
They’re the modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They’re a page right out of history.”

“Let’s ride with the family down the street.
Through the courtesy of Fred’s two feet.”

“When you’re with the Flintstones
you’ll have a yabba dabba doo time.
A dabba doo time.
You’ll have a gay old time.”

Lighten up Francis, ya noobian knob-job.

I was watching this dum show “Impractical” Jokers, and it occured to me that when people do offensive goofy stuff on TV, most of the targets take it in. However, you and I dare not speak of something important or intelligent in consequences, or they get paranoiac like offended and hurt.

It’s like the whole culture has flip flopped toward not merely accepting but enforcing deviancy as a means of escape and cop out, whereas serious stuff is rejected.

This, right there, is very telling as to what years of deviant subconscious dummed down liberal schooling has lead the people in America to become.

This is memorial day, and these people hate soldiers and honoring them in genuine fashion, unless they are presented in a manner of fighting for these false freedoms, kind of “gay-Che Gevara-izing” the military.

I saw it coming earlier with Zero elected-—got my son out just in time.

This forcing of Evil behavior to be glorified through law is Unjust Law-—It is unnatural and evil....and forces little children to grow up with the ideology of Ancient pagans and Satanic cults like the Nazis and Atheists.

it destroys the meaning of “marriage” and “sex”.....makes human beings into nothing but base animal-—below animals—they don’t even sodomize each other. Such a disease causing, disgusting behavior that destroys the dignity of human beings-—and they call lust—”love”.

Very sick society and culture. Nihilism....it is even worse than abortion because it destroys the logic, reason in little children and corrupts their worldview.

NEVER...NEVER be ashamed of the Academy. Be mightily ashamed that those in command did not have the courage and integrity of Lance Sijan. Among those individuals, how many have saluted his portrait?

The current chain of command are wusses.....many of whom are fellow grads, some of whom were classmates. I realize they answer to a civilian “commander” who is an idiot, usurper, non-American Socialist.

Still, some stones should be shown. They aren’t.

Yes, I’m go***mned ashamed of the DoD, the Air Force, and my alma mater.

To quote a traditional gospel hymn, “God gave Noah the rainbow sign, No more water, FIRE next time!”. Brace yourselves, it gets bigger as it goes, this ugly beast as it lumbers toward Gommorah. Hold on to your children. This beast wants to eat them, destroy them. There is a way out but it comes from an unanticipated source: the Torah of Sinai. Learn it and live it. If you and your.children will keep it, it will keep you. You must return to Torah. It has been called “The Yoke of Heaven”. Didn’t I hear someone say “take my yoke upon you, and learn of me.”?

Such Wisdom is mocked in today’s public schools and MSM. Our culture is rotten to the core. Now our “Unjust Laws” actually force teachers to teach and promote evil to children.

It would save this world if everyone would turn to God—the only source of Wisdom.

Taxman Bravo Zulu! for recommending Lance’s story.

As a Naval Aviator during the Vietnam War, I have often wondered if I would have had the “Right Stuff” if faced with POW status.

I never had to answer the question for real. Lance did, and VERY HEROICALLY!

Read his story right here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lance_Sijan

You will be inspired!

Obongo Bozo and his LIEberal hangers-on have dishonored each and every one of us; Citizen, Marine, Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Coast Guardsman alike, by their rude, arrogant and condescending trashing of the finest and most worthy attributes that have made America the exceptional Nation it used to be!

The sooner we can right ALL of their wrongs, including repealing open homosexuality in the military, the better off we as a people and a nation will be!

The military was one sector that remained (relatively) unscathed as the “left made their long march though our institutions”. (Pat Buchanan quotation) Now the jug eared communist is working on destroying our defense forces and what better way than making gay 100% OK. Not to mention the Dems putting women on submarines and ships. The pregnancy rate on some aircraft carriers is 30%

I haven’t seen any fallout yet. Maybe in five more years or so. Hopefully the deviant officers will wash out on active duty.

I don’t see how someone can follow a man that takes it up the wazoo. Their thought processes gotta be totally out of whack.

The rectum has an abundance of nerve endings (wikipedia) that connect to the brain. So my theory is you mess up your brain and nervous system from taking it up the wazoo. This would apply to men and women but men more so and more damaging
