The people in the background are just minding their own business. They’re focused on the fact that their soldier is home and not giving the gay guys behind them a second thought. But I guess because they’re not applauding the men for their homosexuality that makes them homophobes, right?
^ No. Nothing in the post, besides the use of the words “fags” indicated to me that the OP thought the people were homophobes; muchless bsaing that assertion on them “not applauding” these two men. The post was commentary on how fucking stupid the ‘sanctity of marriage’ argument against same sex marriage.
^ Yes but nobody in the picture is questioning the sanctity of marriage. It’s just two gay men who haven’t seen each other in awhile and obviously missed each other. There’s no reason to act like the family in the background is judging them.
All of you so far are wrong. Get past the gay part and read it. The husband says he was gone for 18 months, the wife tries to skirt the fact that the baby is not his. Overall it’s just a bad and very unfunny joke.
ramennoodles– Yes, they are. Did you see the part at the end where the supposed wife says “They’ll destroy the sanctity of marriage I tell you?” The implication is that gays hurt her marriage more than her cheating; not that she is homophobic or that the OP feels the couple isn’t paying enough attention to them.
@alexis12305: I know 2 marine wives that cheated on their men while they were away. Congrats to you for staying true (assuming you’re not lying) but the standard is lower than you believe it is. How do I know they cheated? Because it was me they cheated on their dudes with. At the same time.
I’m not saying wives don’t cheat, I’ve heard my fair share of stories. I never have, my good friends never have. About half of the couples my husband and I have been friends with are divorced now, and those were all husbands cheating. You can believe me or not, I don’t really care. Three deployments, and 7 years married.. The military lifestyle isn’t an easy one, some people(Men and women) just can’t cope. It’s a lot of alone time, a lot of stress, a lot of worry. I wouldn’t put myself through this if I weren’t in for the long haul. I’m also not from Texas.
As far as PDA, around base it’s not ok, but homecomings and when you have to say goodbye, it’s totally acceptable and expected.
beatus– On that we differ. I dont consider kissing your loved one after been deployed for X ammount of months to be “getting frisky” and I dont begrudge them for doing so. Assuming they aren’t fucking right in front of me, have at it.
Dutchess, I believe the real difference is that it seems you were serious, whereas I was not. I truly don’t care what people do as long as they don’t A) hurt me or someone else physically, B) take away someone’s possessions, C) shove their activities in my face.
beatus– Forgive me, considering all the stupid shit you write in the comments section it was difficult for me to determine if you were A) a hypocrite B) someone whose sensitivities are offended easily C) trolling. It appears to be option C; or you considering people kissing each other as “getting frisky/shoving their activities in your face,” whichever. Glad we’re at an understanding.
Bacchante– Sarcastic comments are one thing, continuing on with an pseduo-argument that isn’t intended to be serious and then going “easy buddy, I was kidding” when the other person asks for clarification is trolling.
In any case, it’s all good in the hood. Someone needs to call that Army wife a slut again to draw the ire of alexis12305.
cold hard dose of reality.
if the bullying cunts didn’t pick up a gun to go to foreign lands and kill the locals – for profit of halliburton et al – then I wouldn’t have 3gig of splattered soldier in a very special folder.
Talk about mixed emotions.
I would really like some big guys in uniform to come over and sodomize me, I love soldiers, they´re evil in the most amazing ways. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Soldiers come be mean to me, i need to be punished, I´ve been a bad girl.
MsAnne is clearly either a stupid teenager (he/she has a Tumblr) and/or a social retard. I’m not one to be on the “dick” of all military saying they are all heroes, BUT saying (to paraphrase) the only good soldier is a dead soldier is vile and disgusting. My parents both served (Air Force geeks) and they are pretty decent people. Soldiers aren’t saints, but they are willing to sacrifice their lives so that others may live in a society in relative safety. That goes for most nations, not just the US. You don’t need to worship soldiers to respect them.
^you don’t need to worship soldiers to respect them, but a full-frontal lobotomy helps.
The illegal wars that the US keeps on waging…Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Irag, bullying Cuba… and soon Iran.. have FUCK ALL to do with the ‘safety of society’(don’t piss in my pocket and call it lemonade you apologist asshole) and EVERYTHING to do with profiteering. You’re a brainwashed fool if you believe the bullshit spun by the people who have a vested interest in waging this shit.
@duchess, i think everybody knew beatus was joking but you. More importantly, @squarerobot, you are either a fool or extremely gullible (and thus a fool ) I have some respect for soldiers who fight for the freedom/safety of their people (for example, the rebels in libya). As missanne said a lot more eloquently than i can, all USA soldiers fight for is oil and money.
remember back in the day, when people fought, but not for laws. but to over take countries and capture humans for slaves ? how was America won, you idiot (msanne), if it wasn’t for war, or shameless killing, you probably wouldn’t be living this life of your countless hours on the internet preaching your opinions. keep that in mind, next time someone honours the men fighting, and protecting America that could be over taken by the Chinese at any point in time.
Not really following how this life I’m living has much to do with the invasion of America. But I constantly keep in mind the devolution of the US – in fact we’ve been watching that empire collapse in real time for the last 5 years.
When capitol hill finally washes away on a tide of blood-stained hubris, the better off the whole world will be.
Hey Lynchmaster – you’re a pathetic fuck – don’t worry about us fags we don’t need your support or opinion. By the way, you have gay relatives or friends whether you realize it or not and I’m sure they’d take death over being related to you. Bet you have a tiny dick.
