Why would you think it's in poor taste? They volunteered to go into service during an active war. They knew that they risked being injured (i.e. sterility) in a way that might impact them for the rest of their lives.
It was their choice to go.
You seem to understand that gays and lesbians are hardwired. We don't have a choice in who we are--the gender that we're attracted to.
Kimare keeps bringing up the procreative issue with regards to marriage--not us.
If you want him to stop doing this, why don't you confront him?
Look at you, trying to be clever....

Yeah. My son was in Desert Storm. It wasn't easy. Rather have been there myself than worry about him. He was 18 a few months out of high school. He kicked ass and came home a man.

Tough sh!t on em, eh? Nice! And you whine you're not being treated with respect. Priceless.
Big D knows no d!ckless vets, don't lie for him.
You'll be the first to whine "Why wasn't I protected, where's the military!" if the time comes.
It's in extremely poor taste and disrespectful for you, Big D and Jizzy to bring up horrible disfigurements in your zeal for a matter that's trivial in comparison.
They're both base and crude. But, I prefer VV to Fascist D.

But you guys chose to go into the military--well, maybe you didn't; but I guess you could have been a conscientious objector--gone to Canada, gone to jail instead of serving.
We did not choose to be gay.
Yet, you're allowed to marry, even though your voluntary military service left some of you sterile. And Kimare insists that since our relationships are sterile, we shouldn't be allowed to marry.
He says that mutually sterile couples shouldn't be allowed to marry.
A man who has a war injury leaving him sterile wants to marry a woman who has had a hysterectomy due to cancer... They are a mutually sterile couple. Does Kimare believe they should be allowed to marry?
And I don't understand why bringing veterans into this conversation has upset you. I honestly don't.
War is hell. People choose to go to war.
They earned the right. You wouldn't know about that.

Of course it will. And, there will be no reciprocation...
VV explained why in a very long winded post. I dozed off halfway through and never did get the gist of it. Something about why should he since all SSM supporters are right whatever they say.

Frankie, unlike you and your little friends...I do not live on Topix! I have a full, busy life and only stop by to read a few times a week. I am sorry I did not respond to his apology quickly enough for your liking!

I will ask you also...why do you find the abuse of a child a joking matter? It isn't funny Frankie and speaks volumes about you!

Right here. He posts reality, and you wave some piece of scrap paper as if that defines reality. Don't worry about it, though, your dash for the cash paid off. You greedy little [email protected]@rds got what you wanted.$$$.
Joanie Baloney still hasn't told us how he and his husband have biological children together.

Joanie Baloney never mentions he lives in Georgia, a state that constitutionally bans SSM.

But that's why we call him Joanie Baloney!

Cool I'm sure the Rainbow Gay society fund raiser organizations appreciate you and your husband/wifie of 17 yrs. side show to raise money for HIV/AIDS patients, keep up the good work, oh and please don't post your HOMO photo. thank you
Nice to see your true colors coming out Gustypants.

My sister, mother and aunt (mother's sister) all have had breast cancer. Mom is 97 and doing well, my aunt passed in her late 80s from an unrelated cause, and my sister is probably going to lose her battle with it one day as she's stage four. As a result of personal experiences, namely all the women in my immediate family (not there is a clue there about my cancer free self) have had breast cancer, I raise funds for the American Cancer Society. Apparently my balls are a bit larger than yours as I'm willing to take all the ribbing that comes with a man wearing a dress in order to raise a few bucks for a good cause. My wife's side of the family has seen their fair share of it too.

I'd raise funds for AIDs too, but I'm devoting my efforts to the American Cancer Society, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, and a local camp for underprivileged children. I'm a bit skint after that.

Now don't you feel silly mocking good works?

BTW, that gay man inside your scared little self really wants to see me in a dress so he can whack off in the bathroom.

A full and busy life yet you know Frankie and bother to post to him. Priceless.

As far as abusing children you're talking out your ass. Get back to gassing up your private jet, why are you here talking to us losers?

LOL, you really are a piece of work! Getting all offended when someone mentions Veterans, yet you think I should not be offended when you make wise cracks about the abuse I suffered as a child.

An overblown claim for an overblown claim. All meant in good fun. Of course if he could come up with some supporting evidence there'd be no need for it. The fella is just a tap on the head away from being Westboro Baptist Church Bat shit crazy.

Try to understand I am not whining for myself. I am fine. I do not regret one day in the military. It enabled me to go to college and get a MS geology. And a great career and secure retirement.
Try to understand I am outraged at your attitude about brave men and women with horrible injuries they suffered protecting your sorry ass.
They didn't volunteer to get maimed. They volunteered to protect your rights so among other things, you would be free to be gay.
Do you really think that the military--a historically very homophobic organization--has fought to protect my right to be gay?

I'm curious... Again, I am not trying to insult you, I am in no way passing judgment; I'm trying to understand the draw of the military on so many people... You lost your health to your participation in the military. You obviously benefited from the perks that the military afforded you--school, a career, etc. Do you think that the price you paid with your health was worth the benefits you received from the military?

If you have children or grandchildren; knowing what you know about the emotional and physical (and maybe spiritual) costs associated with the military, would you encourage them to join?

The Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans have been treated better than any veterans since WWII. I think that's a pretty fair assessment. The Vietnam War veterans pretty much got the shaft. Korean War veterans were pretty much ignored.

But even as good as the Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans have been treated, there are still a lot of them who languish with horrible injuries--physical and emotional. They're not getting the treatment and benefits they were promised.

Do you really think our government treats veterans well? I don't.

So, do you think your injuries and illness now was worth the education you received?

If you would rather not talk about this stuff, just say the word and I won't bring it up again. If you'd rather talk in private, send me a message via TOPIX.
