Naval Academy LGBT Alumni Honor Class of 2012 (BARF alert!)
USNA Out ^ | 4/15/2012 | Oscar

Posted on 04/16/2012 12:29:13 PM PDT by DesertRenegade

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Ninety-four U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) alumni, midshipmen and their guests gathered here Saturday to recognize alumni and midshipmen accomplishments over the last year, commemorating seven months since repeal of the law commonly known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.

Thirty-one midshipmen of all four classes and their guests attended, along with 34 members of USNA Out – the LGBT organization of U.S. Naval Academy alumni. Sixteen of the midshipmen are seniors, who will graduate on May 29 and be the first class at Annapolis to graduate under the new policy that now allows gay, lesbian and bisexual military members to serve without fear of discharge. The new policy became effective in September 2011, a few weeks after classes resumed for the year at the academy.

Senior LGBT midshipmen who are USNA Out members organized the annual event, a tradition which began in 2009. Naval Academy faculty and staff members and representatives of the Naval Academy Alumni Association also attended at the invitation of the midshipmen. During the event, the midshipmen met with LGBT USNA alumni from classes spanning six decades, including active duty and retired officers. The dinner was hosted at the residence of an USNA Out member who resides in the Annapolis area.

This is beyond sickening. Obama has successfully morphed our proud military into some kind of twisted gay bathhouse experiment. Why aren't we hearing an outcry from Romney? Is there anyone left who will stand up for the integrity and honor of what used to be the best military on planet Earth?

The leadership should put all these perverts in the same unit and send them to the front lines.

They are already on the front lines, the front line of sexual deviancy and AIDS. The taxpayer is going to end up footing the bill for this insanity when the military becomes a cesspool of AIDS. The costs are going to be astronomical!

Because Romney, aka Fauxbama, supports the idea of a queer military.

Sixteen out of ~1,000 graduates....

(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Naval_Academy)

1.6% of the graduating population.

Watch for LGBTQ recruiting to aggressively increase.

In the proper application of P.C., these are not midshipmen:
they are midshippeople, or midshipfreaks, or midshipfags.

They tried the first couple of days after DADT was lifted. The degenerates were not flocking to the recruiting stations as the LBGQT supporters suggested. Most would not like the environment in the military. They may be able to serve openly but that does not mean acceptance by the majority of the troops. Those thinking it would be a big orgy wouild be in for a rude awaking.

what a pathetic posting....the graduation is sometime in May, this article was posted now....just when did you expect Romney to comment??? Perhaps he will, pehaps he won't...neither of which situations has any implication at all as to his opinion on the subject.

we need to have a supermajority in the house and senate to put the military back into sanity. Recriminalize homosexual conduct in the military ranks.

The evening closed with a singing of the Naval Academy alma mater “Navy Blue and Gold,” led by past and present members of the Naval Academy Glee Club in attendance.

Oh, Mike you missed this one!

Too true. I wonder if Holly Graf was a guest speaker?

Just pondering.

This is so unfair. Where are the USNA organizations for the necrophiliacs and those in relationships with their pet dogs?

It’s a rough day to be alumni from Annapolis. I already got a stinger email from my brother over this press release. Still not as embarrassing for the school as Jimmy Carter, but it’s close.

If they are seniors now, it is a tacit admission of guilt that they dishonorably entered the service 4 years ago when it was illegal.

No matter what the situation, those in attendance are not trustworthy. No integrity.

“just when did you expect Romney to comment???”

Comment? Why does he need to? His sanctioning gay marriage in Massachusetts is indication enough.

You care to explain your context of “pathetic?” Romney, in 1994, sent a letter to to Log Cabin Republicans stating his hope that DADT would be “the first step for gays and lesbians to serve openly and honestly in the military.”

He supported the repeal of DADT. What`s “pathetic” about tying that to his lack of interest /comment on the subject of LGBT activities at the USNA? Romney, ever so risk-averse, won`t say a word.

I remember an article that quoted Romney even saying he would be more “pro-gay” than Ted Kennedy. There is something serious off about Romney’s moral compass. He doesn’t seem to have any rock solid values. Who the hell would want to promote this type of thing and make our military a laughing stock of the world?
