    Serving Honorably? Honoring The Country But Not Honoring Myself

    I have served for 12+ years now and deeply in the closet during my service to this country.  I love serving.  I love my job.  I have deployed three times in the span of my career and I have no regrets in having done that.  However, I look at this policy as...

    Sexuality In the Military

    I read an article this morning about Obama dismissing the Don't Ask Don't Tell law for our Armed Forces. Some of the reasons that they are holding off on repealing it is that it could be "uncomfortable" for recruits to shower and or bunk with someone who is gay or a...

    Of course gays should have rights,

    but I also think I should not have their life style forced upon me as something I have to agree with. I say live and let live, but would all you gay people please just keep your private business private?

    For Me It'S Simple.

    For me it has always been simple. At the age of ten I watched a TV show with a gay character. I learned about his struggles and to be honest, I didn't understand why he struggled. At that age I didn't see anything wrong with a boy liking another boy. I didn't have any issues with...

    I am not gay. I wouldn't want to be.

    And sometimes, I don't approve of their lifestyle. (I don't want to be a hypocrite). HOWEVER, that doesn't mean they shouldn't have rights. They are still humans. Love is love and the heart wants what the heart wants. Even if I HATED gays, that gives me no right to dehumanize...

    Everyone, Everywhere

    Until we level the playing field so that everyone has the same rights and responsibilities, we will never achieve an equitable society. It is is difficult enough in this world to find someone to share mutual love and respect, without imposing such restrictions on love.Long...

    not just their gender. Love is much deeper than that.

    You Can'T Change A Person

    No one can change a person, no one can change a gay to be straight, it's who they are. Accept and live on, it's a free world, so many selfish people out there that bully people because they are gay, bi. I am bi woman, I can't come out because my family/relatives and so many in...

    Did anyone anyone hear what happened in Arizona.

    Owners can deny service to gays. Well guess what, to anyone who supports the bill I have one thing to say to you. F*** you, it's not a choice people make. It's who they are and you have respect that. Their humans for Christ sake. They deserve equal rights. If I ever see someone...
