My God, I’m SO glad my hubby retired this year.

So glad.

But I hate to say it ...our nation’s young people, although many valiant and serving us proudly, also have very liberal ideas about this. I wouldn’t doubt that a lot of them who are on active duty now have no problem with this.

Times have just changed. America has changed. And not for the better. Everyone under 30 is sympathetic to the gay cause.

You are correct. Views about this have changed dramatically among the younger generations. During this past election cycle I dealt with many younger people that are basically conservative or open to conservatism on economic issues (especially debt), but won't even consider voting Republican because of our positions on gay marriage and other social issues. It really is appalling how out of favor conservatives/Republicans are with the under 30's. Many of these young people don't even see voting conservative as an option. This is a result of the left having entirely taken over the education and entertainment establishments. We ceded these areas to the secular socialists and it will likely take generations to reverse the damage.

That is correct...I went in in the 50’s, from a small town(s) in Upstate NY, had little experience with the female side of the species (in THAT way) and absolutely NONE with the male side of it —was ‘sheltered’ enough to not even know that community existed.
I am sure there were some around that I came in contact with but they didn’t ‘brag’ about it. Maybe my feelings should be ‘hurt’ that I hadn’t been approached. s/
Went to a reunion and found one of my classmates had married a guy a year ahead of us and it turned out he ‘played for the other team’. He played sports and never approached anyone that I was aware of and at the reunion no one ‘shunned’ him or anything like that. Of course, that was the 50th so age may have had ‘something’ to do with the ‘acceptance’.

Today’s kids are force fed this and even MY children are/were more tolerant of the situation and now that my grandchildren are serving(of age) that ‘gay kid’ over there is just another kid (for the most part).
