***Where did you go thru basic? Certainly not at Lackland with the rest of us. A unit full of out-processing homos?***
Lackland 1966. Yes, a barracks of out-processing homos. When they went through the chow line some had on necklaces, lipstick, ect.
Our TI came off his authoritarian position for a few minutes and said that things went on in THAT barracks too disgusting to mention.
Ever occur to you that maybe some (most) of these guys didn’t want to be in the military? Maybe playing homo was a good way to get out? I don’t know. I’ve never seen a gay man wear lipstick. Even in a gay bar. Except drag queens but those freaks aren’t joining the military...it would ruin their nails. We’re an all volunteer force. I don’t know anyone who didn’t know exactly what they were getting into so maybe we that’s why we aren’t full of freaks wearing lipstick to get thrown out. And I went through basic in ‘02. I think maybe my experience is a little more pertinent to today’s military. Since I’m in it. No offense but the world has changed a little since ‘66. We all know “gays” as they like to call themselves. We grew up watching them on MTV, my soccer coach was gay, everyone has a gay friend...mostly girls do anyway, they think it’s “cool”. Most people my age don’t care. My parents may not have paid for my college but they did something a lot more important, they taught me the Bible. So I do care. But I’m a minority round here. But there are some of us here. Fighting the good fight. Preaching the Word whenever we can get away with it.
Homos make up maybe 2 percent of the population. Of those, I don’t see all that many jumping to join the military. From what I understand, a lot of ‘em can’t even admit it to themselves and either stay in the “closet” (where I’d be fine if they stayed) or don’t choose to give in to the perversion till their mid twenties or even later. I just find it hard to believe that there were enough on one base at any one time to make up a whole unit.
