    The discharge probably wasn`t for loving that man, it was for sticking things in his bum hole.

    "DADT "crap" has probably saved thousands of homosexual lives."

    So you`re saying our troops are incapable of doing their jobs knowing that others in their unit or in the military alltogether happen to be homosexual? Sorry, i have more respect and faith in our troops to do the job at hand regardless of the sexual orientation of those they serve with. Your contempt for the Troops is noted.

    I`m sure before Vietnam people were saying that racially integrating the army would hurt morale and get people killed too. Well they did integrate races, and that didn`t happen. They`ll integrate gays eventually and it will go fine. Actually they are already there and it already does work, gays are in the military and it is the best military there is.

    I have no problem with someone being homosexual. However, I have a major problem with someone if I know they are homosexual. IMO pda is always inappropriate. If you tell someone about your sexuality or let someone see you engaged in a public display of affection, then you deserve any ridicule that you may get. That goes for both heterosexuals and homosexuals.

    Frankly, that is stupid. So, you`re fine with homosexuals... so long as they never so much as mention their lover. Or hold their hand. Or hug. Or do anything straight people do every day and you don`t care about.

    The real reason behind the DADT is military thinks recruitment efforts will go down. Not a good idea during a war. Would be best done during peace time.

    Oh really? so if you and your boyfriend/husband hold hands in public, it`ll be okay for someone to make fun of you? uh-huh, let`s see how well you handle the ridicule when it`s YOU going through it, not a gay person. your entire idea is stupid--there is nothing wrong with people holding hands and being affectionate, gay or straight.

    DADT doesn`t deny the right to love someone.

    It denies the right to STATE that you love someone. Which is even more ridiculously illogical.

    Yeah, I`d say the real problem with DADT is that even if a gay man doesn`t tell anyone and is outed by word of mouth or something, he is discharged from the military. Someone should not be discharged simply because of their sexual preference. That is a perfectly good soldier you`re tossing away.

    Correction, N-Vet, you are kicked out if they hear anything about you being homosexual. If a reliable source reports it, whether they have proof or not, they kick you out. You can`t talk about past relationships. You can`t talk about `maybe` being gay. You have to be a completely different person. It doesn`t have anything to do with the act of sex.

    I live in Canada. Where it counts, our military has kicked an equivalent amount of ass to the US military, and our soldiers serve openly. If someone`s willing to pick up a weapon and defend your way of life, why should you care what they do in the bedroom? Why not ban all hetero leather-fetishists or something, too?

    How do you know he got it through loving one man? NEWS FLASH - you can get it by being in the closet and sleeping with women. Maybe after being kicked out he bacame a heroine adict with dirty needles.

    SmilinSam: The chances of a monogamous married (man and woman) couple getting Hiv is virtually zero, It`s promiscuity that spreads VD of all kinds. The most promiscuous segment of the population is the LGBT segment, Without a doubt.

    A survey by The Advocate, a homosexual magazine, revealed that promiscuity is a reality among homosexuals. The poll found that 20 percent of homosexuals said they had had 51-300 different sex partners in their lifetime, with an additional 8 percent having had more than 300.

    What I was meaning to say was if he was caught in the act it didn`t matter what his partner was. We don`t know the specifics. was he outed or was he caught in the act. It would make a difference. In one instance it would fall under DADT the other wouldn`t....

    "Conclusion

    It needs be said that we are not asserting that all, or even a majority, of gays partake of the above practices. Indeed, as the study indicates, many such practices are condemned by many gays - but also openly praised by many. If public opinion felt that all gays so partook, it was indeed in error. However, what The Gay Report clearly indicates is that the above practices are significant problems in the gay subculture, with numbers and percentages alarmingly higher than the mainstream."

    @Oystah You`d be surprised sometimes, haha. I`ve see a rather butch, normally manly-man gay guy decide to put on a dress, and then got ridiculed for it by some little wannabe-gangsters. So he took off his stilettos, and chased them with it held over his head.

    It was kinda like seeing 50 Cent in a wig and roostertail dress, haha. But, to top off the football and the muscles and the apparently violent impulses, he`s mostly a bottom.

    Though all the same, most of us, top or bottom, won`t bother hitting on straight guys unless they`re being annoying and we`re trying to make them uncomfortable. It`s a waste of time. We may find them attractive, yes, but that doesn`t mean we`ll act on it any more than most straight men will go after every single girl he finds attractive.

    Yeah, it`s a gay magazine, I get it - it`s still wrong. In my experience, yes, gays, or at least gay men, are a little more likely to sleep around - but the exact opposite can be said for some gays, and most have a comparable sex life to anyone else.
    HIV spreads more easily in the gay community because the walls of the anus are thin, and can break easily, making the transmission of the illness more likely - NOT BECAUSE GAY PEOPLE ARE HORNY ALL THE TIME. IT DOES NOT WORK LIKE THAT.

    KannaLilly: I did NOT say "GAY PEOPLE ARE HORNY ALL THE TIME." I pointed to studies showing they are more promiscuous, There are some straight people that are `horny all the time` that aren`t promiscuous, and some that are (I could give examples, but should I have to ?).

    Of course IV drug use contributes too. Risky behavior means `Risk` is involved, If we are to really tackle the spread of aids, It would be foolish to not address the risky behaviors associated with it. Wouldn`t you agree ?

    I know a few straight guys that love to claim this. And they`re either

    A) Full of sh*t and trying to impress the people around them, or

    B) Genuine man whores, who`ve ended up catching diseases of their own.

    Maybe a line should be added below the last one, To be truthful. "..and I died of Aids because I loved several men"

    The truth hurts sometimes.
    Nice job going all out and insulting the character and integrity of a man you barely know the basics about.

    How do you know he didn`t get it from his ONE partner? It happens, in case you didn`t know.


    On top of that, I`d say they would be less likely to contract a disease during war, since they probably wouldn`t sleep with prostitutes and all that.

    @CrakrJak, even if this guy was promiscuous, even if he had aids, he was still a soldier. He risked his life for your country and even earned a medal for his outstanding bravery.

    On June 22, 1988, less than a month before his 45th birthday, Leonard Matlovich died of complications from HIV/AIDS. Source

    pui: Your acting as if i want the first line of his epitaph erased, I don`t. Neither do I really want the one I suggested added, It was mentioned in the interest of truth.

    He wasn`t a drug-user, In fact he was a drug abuse counselor in the Air force. There is no mention of any of his partners dying of Hiv/Aids, Perhaps the person he got it from was still in the closet, Who knows. Either way, It was risky behavior that did him in.

    @CrakrJak Who cares how he got aids? Who cares if he was promiscuous? It does not matter. THIS MAN RISKED HIS LIFE FOR YOU AND THE COUNTRY YOU LOVE. If this soldier had been straight and had died of aids would it matter to anyone? No. Would it matter any more if it was the result of being promiscuous? No. Would anyone insist that everyone must know "the truth" that he had, indeed, died of aids, especially while looking at his grave? Of course not because that is disgustingly disrespectful. You are pointing out that he died of aids like we should care. As if we should think less of him for that. You are making out like all his bravery and service to your country counts for nothing simply because he is gay. You are looking at a photo of an American soldier`s tombstone, a real hero, and all you care to say about the life he lived is "He died of Aids". You are spitting in the face of someone who went to war for you. Leonard Matlovich is twice the man you`ll ever be.

    deadbass: Doesn`t really change anything she just said.

    Ok Crakr, we get it he was gay and got aids. That`s about as far as your argument is going to take you unless you`re arguing some other point, which it doesn`t seem like you`re doing.

    Now stop the drating trolling. Leonard Matlovich killed another human being in war, you should at least treat him with the respect that I know you would treat any other soldier that has died, in our out of combat.

    I can`t believe in this day and age we`re still arguing about whether or not being gay is right or wrong or whether or not they should serve in the military etc.

    If you`re American you should believe in freedom for all, and limiting someone`s rights because of sexual preference is unconstitutional.

    If ANYONE no matter their sexual preference or gender, would like to put their life on the line so I can live the standard of life I have now...Well, I deeply appreciate it.

    Big thank you to servicemen/women.

    LOVE the fact that if a straight guy gets around with allot of people... he`s a stud. If a woman does it, or a gay man does it, then that is something else, something shameful. Regardless of the disease, he served his time, and did what allot of us can`t or won`t do. Hats off to him.

    for all the people who have accused gay men of sleeping around a lot. As a gay man I can tell you that you are absolutely right.

    Why ? Because we can!
    Straight guys would be total sluts if they could but women have a habit of saying "NO" sometimes.

    so stop being jealous that we get a lot more action than you do.

    You can`t elevate someone to `Hero` status without an honest appraisal of them. Be that someone like Gen. Armstrong Custer, John F. Kennedy, King David, and others.

    He was a veteran, I respect that. But he was also an antihero in many people`s eyes.

    Don`t ask don`t tell is a wonderful system. I don`t want to know If you`re eying me in the shower, and you don`t want me to bitch about you being gay.
    If a gay says that gays should be able to be open while in the military and this system is oppressive, then their just trying to get attention.

    "Don`t Ask, Don`t Tell" is bullpoo. In 2003, my boyfriend at the time joined the army. They asked him flat out, when he joined. It was in the paperwork. Small southern town, though. Maybe it was old paperwork and they figured that the people there wouldn`t care?

    I don`t care if a gay man represents my country, but I support DADT. If you serve the military do your job, don`t be eyeballing others because most likely they don`t want to be eyeballed. And just the same, the sergeants aren`t going out to directly find the gays. The only gays who get caught are being frisky with others, or are men trying to escape the military

    Personally, I support the DADT thing. Why do gay people have to go around telling everybody about their sexual preferences anyway? If I liked to wrap myself in Saran Wrap, roll around in a tub of Grape Nuts and be called Polly during sex, I wouldn`t go around blabbing to everyone about it.
    What consenting adults do in private is no one`s business.

    @PoopNoodle: Why do straight people have to go around telling everybody about their sexual preferences anyway? All the straight jokes/comments, including "I`d drat her in the ass", make my gay friends as uncomfortable as gay jokes do you.

    @DuckBoy: By your reasoning we should castrate (nearly) all men because many women don`t want to be oogled, but (nearly) all men oogle them anyway without asking or caring for their preferences.

    The epitaph is hokey & probably fake. Homophobia, however, is tiresome & played-out. Tombstone, FTW. The US WAS settled by Puritans, & that probably still has a bit to do with our tendancy, as a nation, to be sexually repressed & intolerant.

    PTPete, this may amaze you but some people have passion for what they believe in, and if they were passionate in life why would they be humble in death? I see no homophobia in the epitaph, just an expression of injustice. But as homophobia is defined, you fit the bill.
