I know that most of you won't believe this when I say it but the US Military is one of the most aggressively progressive forces in American culture.
Go look up when they desegregated.
When they enacted equal pay
When LGBTQ persons were allowed to serve openly

Every social justice change in the American culture has been preceded by the US Military.
To paraphrase my original First Sergeant: there ain't no skin color but olive drab. Their ain't no gender but soldier. When you're neck deep in the shit and taking fire, you ain't gonna care whose dick the soldier next to you was sucking last night so you best get over it now.

He sounds like a good man. If I was in combat I wouldn't care if the soldier next to me was gay, straight, bi or something else. All that matters is does he or she have my back. If someone wouldn't join the military because they don't like LGBT soldiers serving alongside them, then I wouldn't want them in the military anyway.

Says someone who never served the military. Octavia are you ranting on a post you have 0 knowledge and experience about again? Did you even try to enlist in the military or did the comfort of your surroundings and fear of being away from that comfort zone, and the selfless act of putting your life on the line for those that don't give a shit about you prevented you from joining?
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
Can't remember why I didn't join, but I certainly had thought about it. With my health issues I may not have even been accepted, but maybe I would've.

By the way, how does not having served in the military make my comment less legitimate?

Experience and knowledge dear. Again so.ething you will not gain if you do not participate. Doesn't that have any credit? Then, how much credit will your opinion have? How dare you speak for the soldiers when you never been one of them? How dare you?!

I see "If I was in combat I wouldn't care if the soldier next to me was gay, straight, bi or something else" and "I wouldn't want them in the military anyway." Instead of "I don't know shit of what I am talking about" and "I just want to include my LGBT agenda somewhere in this post". Now more honesty will be appreciated.

"If I was in combat..."

Keyword: I

I was speaking for myself, not anyone else.

There is a way how you can speak for yourself, but another about how you will like to impose your believes and understanding of how things should be. Both start with "i" I even included them in my example because I am that nice :)

If I were in the military, I wouldn't give a shit if the soldier next to me was gay, bi or straight. Clear enough?

"I don't know shit of what I am talking about"

Clearly I do, since I don't have to serve in the military to know that I wouldn't give a shit about other soldiers' sexual orientations.

Does Fauscovai need to do a little sexual experimentation (if he hasn't yet) to be qualified to say what he said?

Looked like he was speaking for himself, because he was.

YOU, however, are not in a position to pretend to question how he or anyone would act or treat anyone in that any situation.

Well yes. But it was also women who did that. I think at that time, almost the entire body of the white people in America were universally racist regardless of gender.

Not all white people were racist back in the day, but many were. And yes, it was men and women.
reply

So back in the day all other non white races were not racist?
reply
1 up, 1 reply
I never said anything like that. But since white people were the majority in the country, clearly they had the largest ability to impose racist policies on other people.

I always get choked up seeing this picture. Had a friend of the family who was one of the first marines to storm Iwo Jima. The US had 28,000 casualties including 6800 men who died there. My friend died with almost a pound of shrapnel he received there, still in him. R.I.P. JB.
