Army sergeant is tired of living 2 lives under 'Don't ask, don't tell'

There are 285 comments on the www.syracuse.com story from Jan 10, 2010, titled Army sergeant is tired of living 2 lives under 'Don't ask, don't tell'. In it, www.syracuse.com reports that:

Chuck Iavarone was 19 when he decided to start living his life as an openly gay man. He came out after he graduated from Cicero-North Syracuse High School. He started college, but left after the Sept. 11 attacks to join the U.S. Army Reserve.

He went to basic training. And stepped back into the closet.

For the past eight years, Iavarone has lived a dual life. Openly gay at home. Straight in the Army.

Good but what about my deceased companion, a retired GAY Sargent Major with Silver and Bronze Stars from Vietman?

Bite on that for a minute and swallow very slowly.

And may God bless your brave soldier, and you in your loss.

Sorry about your loss. But do you even WANT the respect of such an obvious scumbag?

Sometimes you have to demand respect, often that's the only thing scumbags understand.

First off if you are gay PLEASE do not join the military, it is a disgrace!! Just stay home away from the good people!!
You were'nt born gay,C'mon be honest with yourself!!
Name one other thing in the existence of history where *MILLIONS* of people made the same claim, and were found out to be engaging in a massive worldwide plot to lie about it.

They were born gay. Millions of them are saying this, and describing it in the same general way.

There should be *NO* question about it. To me, there *IS* no question about it.

It sounds so desperate and bizarre and *not sane* of people like yourself to be repeatedly insisting that these *MILLIONS* of people are lying or making this up. Give it up, already. You won't change their histories or the facts they know.

How *would* you know? Are you secretly gay? Your response doesn't even make any sense.

But -- bizarrely -- there are plenty of dumbasses like you who are *hell-bent*(pun intended) on constantly trying to put this minority down. That would account for stories like the RENT BOY hired by the anti-gay man, who is now a laughingstock and will be ... probably ... forever. You keep taking shots at them, they will take shots at you. There's nothing wrong with them, and *no reason* for people to be harassing them.

What sucks for people like you is, they're not standing for it anymore.
