I love reading letters to the editor in newspapers, because they’re always the best place to find spectacular gems of ignorance. For example, let’s look at a Florida resident’s brilliant logic when it comes to repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell:

As a former staff sergeant, war veteran and drill instructor in the Marine Corps, I believe the repeal this law will cause living hell within the ranks of the military, and also for the moms and dads whose kids are serving. It will be heartbreaking when a son comes home and says to his parents ‘I’m gay’ when he didn’t leave home gay.

Because that’s totally how homosexuality works. It’s a horrible disease that spreads to anyone hanging around queers for too long! Not, you know, biologically based behavior.

When it comes to gays in the military, it is not a question of them not being patriotic or not physically fit. Unfortunately, they are not morally fit. Their lifestyle has disqualified them to serve.

Because we don’t allow anyone in the military who has ever done something wrong. I’m sure there’s a test all recruits have to take that makes sure they fit the proper Christian moral ethics, which is why no one in the military has ever lied, stolen, masturbated, lustfully thought of a woman, taken the lord’s name in vain, eaten lobster, gotten tattoos…

One must understand that a homosexual person does not reproduce (homosexuals recruit). When I was a young Marine, one tried to recruit me into that lifestyle. It caused panic and fear to come over me. It is not discrimination or hate speech toward the gays, it is simply saying no.

These young people will be exposed to strong sexual attractions, and some will give themselves over to it because they are young and vulnerable.

They recruit, just like any other human trait where that human can’t reproduce! I knew those Tay-Sachs babies were causing other Tay-Sachs babies to be diseased. I mean, genetics, pfffffft.

Repeal the don’t ask, don’t tell policy and you will have the men who serve in an uproar. You will have open sex in the barracks, name calling, real threats and fighting among the troops, and even worse the violence of blanket parties. Late at night, some men will throw a blanket over a gay person and beat the life out of him. The repeal of this policy will give way to violence, no matter how much instruction is given by their leaders.

Yeah, and when all those macho, testosterone filled, heterosexual men start beating a gay man to a bloody pulp, it’s totally that gay guys fault! Sheesh, don’t they know heterosexuals just can’t control their rage?

Also, you will have disunity on the battlefield.

Today, if my son was going into the military, I would be more concerned about him coming home a gay person than worrying about him getting wounded or killed in battle.

We are becoming a pathetic nation with no clear moral values.

That’s right, son. I rather you come home in a casket than loving someone of the same sex. Better to be dead than gay.

…People like this fucking terrify me.

    This is why straight american men can get away with constantly talking about how stinky and gross women's genitals are

    They do? OMG.

    How about all the American ladies coming over to apply for political asylum in Europe? They could all get Frenched… and Englished, and Germaned, and finally Polished and Finnished.

    @Exl Blogger: These guys really need a course in ancient Greek history, don't they? The Sacred Band.

    Sorry, I was being speciecentric when I used "we" as in "Homo sapiens". I didn't remember that the Norwegians are a hybrid population between Cro-Magnons, Neanderthals, mountain trolls and snowmen. :)

    I can't stand much heat or sun myself, but that doesn't make me particularly cold-adapted. Maybe I should change my nick to "Indoors Ape"

    I once visited Varangerfjorden in Finnmark and hiked up the hills on the southern shore. It was a magnifigently beautiful place. However, I prefer more sheltered woodland habitat for living.

    I'm surprised that this guy got anywhere in the Marines with that sort of panic attacks. Everyone knows that Marines fuck each other like rabbits.

    @Ape: You forgot the polar bears. Finnmarkings claim to be the offspring of Russian fathers and Ursus maritimus mothers. Research topic for Jen?

    I concur about Finnmark scenery, I like trees as well. Plenty round my way.

    "This is why straight american men can get away with constantly talking about how stinky and gross women's genitals are"

    That would explain the combination of lust and revulsion uber-masculine d-bags exhibit around women. They want to show how aggressive they are sexually ("I would fuck that woman so hard she wouldn't be able to walk for a month."), but at the same time they must constantly treat all women as whores and sluts, beneath the notice of real men. This, I assume, is to show that the man is the instigator in all sex and the woman holds no power over them.

    A great example of this is the Left Behind series, where at the start the main character – Ray "Porn star" Steele – has been carrying on an emotional affair with his coworker. He's never done anything physical with her, because his only goal is the mental subjagation of her to reinforce his own desirability as a man.

    Honestly, I think that if homosexuality was more widely accepted in America we'd see A LOT of the frat-boy, Spike TV-watching manly-men coming out of the closet, and we'd see A LOT LESS reinforcement of the "A real man is a constant sexual predator" meme.

    Oh sorry – I think this MAN needs to worry about himself! He MUST have some SERIOUS issues. Mom was TOO overbearing, Dad wasn't loving, got excited in the locker room in High School, meets guys at the local rest stop? Hum……

    The worst part about this is that I actually kind of support the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. Sure it’s not perfect, but it allows homosexual people to serve in the military without fear of being oppressed or discriminated against for their orientation. It would be better if they just weren’t oppressed or discriminated against, but at least with this rule in place, they don’t have to disclose that information if they don’t want to. It’s the implication that bothers me. The idea that if they DID tell, they would be thrown out or abused because of it. That’s the part that sickens me.

    First as a veteran Marine & Drill Instructor that got out as a SSgt I want to apologize for his ignorance. Fortunatley that type of attitude is not the attitude of the majority, most could care less what your preference is.

    What does this guy think, that sexual proclivities are, 100% of the time, a choice?This guy is, very clearly, attracted to other men. Perhaps he is genuinely attracted to women as well, but there is no doubt that he harbors much love for the cock. He is, however, choosing to ignore and downplay this love, and projecting his own situation on everyone else.Men who are almost entirely heterosexual, like myself, perceive this kind of fear-mongering about “recruitment” as being absolutely ridiculous (nerver mind disgusting and offensive).

    lesbians would want dick if they realized how magic it wasYou might be on to something here! Have you ever noticed that gay-bashers never even acknowledge lesbianism unless they are forced to do so? For them, homosexuality is uniquely and exclusively about a penis entering an anus, and they only ever give a passing acknowledgment of anything else if one of those dirty liberals brings it up.
