My son is a flaming heterosexual. He does not attempt to hide this fact, but neither does he go around broadcasting his sexual preferences. Our family chose to just ignore his life style. When he was twenty years old he joined the Navy. It was some time during his four year tour of duty that I realized that the problem with the United States Military is all of those heterosexuals they blindly let join.
He was in the service back in the days when long distance calling actually cost some money – but that was not an issue – I told him to call any time he felt he needed to talk. One evening he called and said, “Dad, I am in a Navy port on the Mediterranean – somewhere in South France. There is nothing here but dirty bars and whore houses.”
What could I say? I replied as cordially as possible, “Son, stay out of those bars.”
But you see the problem right away. Wherever the United States Military goes they bring heterosexual corruption with them. Even the camps in Vietnam were surrounded with shanties of ill-repute. Think about that – a house of ‘ill-repute.’ That cannot possibly be a good thing. The French and Vietnam examples are intended to highlight the problem with heterosexuals in the Military. What do they call those same places that cater to homosexuals – closets of ill-repute? Who knows? We might never know because homosexuals are not the problem.
My son told me about other heterosexuals – some of them were prejudiced against anyone not of their persuasion. He said the homosexuals respected the rights of others to live as they wanted. So what is the deal? It seems that someone who makes the rules is prejudiced. Right here in the 21st Century – can you imagine.
My daughter married a Marine. Their son was born while my son-in-law was stationed at Camp LaJuene somewhere on the Atlantic coast in the Carolinas. I traveled there to see my new grandson. I was shocked to see the establishments surrounding the Marine Camp – clearly signs of heterosexual domination of the Marines. So, I realized, the problem was not with France or Vietnam – the only common denominator was the simple fact that the Military allows heterosexuals to join and practice their wanton life style when not on duty.
It makes me so mad I could just spit.
As an aside – my son said he knew six people who were discharged because of don’t ask don’t tell. He said five of them were heterosexual – they just wanted out of the Navy so they claimed homosexuality. The Navy granted them an annulment. It was as if they never existed.
