PostPosted: Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:21 pm    Post subject: Ann Coulter on Gays in the Military Reply with quote

I just had to share this, it's a small snip from an article she wrote (it gets pretty funny);

There are far more discharges for pregnancy and “parenthood” than for homosexuality. In the past five years, less than 1 percent of all unplanned military discharges (i.e. not due to retirement or completion of service) were for homosexuality.

Here’s a record of the discharges for 2008, according to the Defense Department:
– Drugs: 5,627
– Serious offenses: 3,817
– Weight standards: 4,555
– Pregnancy: 2,353
– Parenthood: 2,574
– Homosexuality: 634

The main lesson from these figures isn’t that we should have gays openly serving in the military, but that we need to get girls out of the military, inasmuch as they are constantly being discharged for pregnancy, parenthood and weight issues.

According to a 1998 Department of Defense report, most discharges based on homosexuality involved “junior personnel with very little time in the military” and “the great majority of discharges for homosexual conduct are uncontested and processed administratively.” More than 98 percent of discharges for homosexuality were honorable.

So gays and girls can join the military, get taxpayers to foot the bill for their education and then, when it comes time to serve, announce that they’re gay or pregnant and receive an honorable discharge. Indeed, there’s no proof that all the discharges for homosexuality involve actual homosexuals.

Why can’t the Army and Marines have their own rules? Why does everything have to be the same? Whatever happened to “diversity”?

Maybe we could have an all-gay service! They’d be allowed to wear camouflage neckerchiefs (a la Paul Lynde) and camo capri pants. To avoid any sexual harassment claims, they’d have to have their own barrack, which we could outfit with a dance club, a cosmo bar and a counseling center called “The Awkward Place.” Their band would mostly play show tunes, and soldiers captured by the enemy would be taught to reveal only their name, rank and seasonal color analysis (“I am Private First Class Jeffrey Smith and I’m a ‘winter.’”)

They wouldn’t be allowed in combat, however, for the same reason women aren’t –- it takes them too long to get ready.

Most people have no clue what military life is like, least of all the opinion makers in New York, Los Angeles and the nation’s capital. The military is not representative of the country at large. It is disproportionately rural, small-town, Southern and Hispanic.

We ask our troops to do a lot for very little money. Sometimes they die for us. The least Democrats could do is not pass grandstanding bills while self-righteously denouncing our servicemen as homophobes.

Well stated, Suzanne! Thanks for posting the numbers. I expecially like your comment about diversity between services. That was a good one.

Thanks Suzanne,
I like Ann Coulter! She's usually very funny. She cuts through the BS and calls it like it is. If it walks like a Duck, and it quacks like a Duck, it's probably a Duck. I wonder why our elected officials can't grasp that simple concept. Shocked

I have some pretty serious views about gays in the Army...but this is not the place to air them, other than to say...I would not tolerate a gay male in my Infantry Rifle platoon...for a number of (what I consider) valid reasons.

Cheers, Vince
