Artist documents same-sex military couples in new photo project
Freedom to Marry ^ | Sep 20, 2012 | Adam Polaski

Posted on 09/22/2012 5:29:31 PM PDT by Salman

This fall, Tatjana Plitt, an artist from Australia, is working to document these gay and lesbian service members, who for the first time can publicly express their love and commitment to their husbands, wives, or partners. She's touring much of the East coast from September through December to photograph same-sex military couples, and eventually, she'd like to include a collection of the photos in art galleries or a photo book.

Proving once more that they don’t want equality, they want attention.

Back before we had a homosexualized heterophobic military, did anybody ever do heterosexual military-couple photo projects?

Or is this just another exhibition of homosexual narcissism?

...from the military training accompanying the overturn of DADT in the military: “sexual preference is a personal and private choice” blah blah blah.

Well won’t this just underscore what a serious fighting machine the US military is. I mean, showing how “tolerant” and “loving” even our fighting forces must be of deviancy and perversion is what it’s really all about, right?

They’ll bring a whole new meaning to the “sharp end”.

document these gay and lesbian service members

I keep marveling how useful this information is, for when control of the militar turns over in a serious way. I see a lot of other-than-honorable discharges in our future—saving the taxpayers all kinds of money in benefits, pensions, and so on.

But I guess 0bummer doesn't care, and the homo activist people don't care. All these nice, sick servicemen and (mostly) women are shilling for them, and who cares what happens to them?

Well isn’t that special. Well, IF the day ever comes, God willing, when this nonsense foisted on us by a lame duck congress and the Obama administration is reversed, THEN we will already have a pretty good idea of where to look for those to remove from military service.

I know.....wishful thinking. However, Bachmann, at least, promised to reverse the repeal of DADT....one never knows.

These homosexuals have nothing to fear.

I do not see anything even approaching the political will required to reverse this. Romney supported DADT repeal, the current House and Senate do not have the cojones to even mention the issue. To be honest, I have some skepticism that even a 100% Republican Congress would reinstate DADT. Even if they did, it would likely include exemption for currently serving homosexuals.

If Obama wins we are guaranteed 4 years of nothing being done, if Romney wins we are guaranteed 8 years of nothing being done. If we ever get someone like Santorum to be President it will be an incredibly difficult battle to get Congress to even consider return to DADT.

I will settle for them being removed from military service....where they don’t belong.

This is a ploy in order to "normalize" homosexuality. It is NOT normal.

And it is dangerous to allow it freely in our military.

Now men are victims of military sex assaults

Rates of Homosexual Assault in the Military Are Disproportionately High

Once again, the military is being used by leftist social engineers as a bridge to force what they can’t accomplish by other means of normal sociatal acceptance. It’s all leading to federal legalization of homosexual marriage with all the benefits that brings. The 1%< dead ender fringe homosexuals of this nation will shriek and scream until they get their way, then they’ll work on normalizing pedophelia.

This is exactly why homosexual activists went after the Military FIRST, before attempting to repeal DOMA or get an ENDA passed. They knew if they could bring down the strongest, most conservative institution in the country, everything else on their agenda would be a cake walk.

Saw one good one:
"Excuse me while I go vomit (with 90% of other service members.)"
Personally, I know of NO service members happy with 'homos allowed'.
ALL of them say they dare not speak anything against it, because of the current 'climate' of the military...
So glad I departed whenI did...

Concur. Kirk and Madsen in After the Ball (originally published in magazine-series form as "Overhauling Straight America") emphasized working as hard as possible, in all gay propaganda, to hebetate straights' moral and esthetic revulsion by constantly working on them, exposing them as often as possible to "positive" images of gays -- gays as victims, gays as ordinary people, gays as your brother or sister or other family member, gays as benefactors and public exemplars, in a process very like metal fatigue, with the same end, viz. breaking it permanently and destructively.

It's like worrying a metal strap or bracket until it breaks. Never stop, never ease off, until it breaks.

Look, all these paraphilia issues are just tools to the Left. Yes, the homo lobby is very motivated and biggish -- but never lose sight of the fact that they are tools.

The paraphilias and disgust being shoved in people's faces are tools. The object, the project in hand here, is demoralization of the American middle class.

The resulting close-quarters combat with the Taliban and Al-Q'aeda goat-sodomizers would be a disaster. It would destroy the world's entire stockpile of K-Y Jelly, Vaseline, and Hypoid SAE 90 differential oil (commonly known as rear-end oil).

But it isn’t.

I don’t recognise the hat emblem, and the lower sleeve is that of a Navy Lieutenant.

It looks like some sort of costume this homo dreamed up.

I’m thinking Stolen Valour at this point.
