Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Gay Soldier on Cover of Soldier (Why The US Is Behind The Times)
â€œI still canâ€™t get my head round the USâ€™ â€˜donâ€™t ask, donâ€™t tellâ€™ policy,â€ said Tpr Wharton, who has served Queen and country for six years.
â€œConsidering some people have general problems every week Iâ€™m not complaining,â€ he said â€œI havenâ€™t got any personal problems. My problems are like every other soldierâ€™s â€“ bombs and bullets.â€
The trooper was also keen to elaborate on the general misconceptions people have about homosexual men and women. â€œPeople tend to think gay people donâ€™t like sport and that
they just sit and file their nails â€“ that is not the case,â€ he said. â€œI love playing and watching sport â€“Iâ€™m a massive Liverpool fan and I donâ€™t own a nail file.â€
The gay stereotype is quickly dying, and yet still, there are those that tout "homosexuals" will break the morale of the US armed forces. Gay people are like everyone else and should be able to serve openly.
This is kind of another DADT thread, but it's more a highlight of how another country, much like ours in its legislative overzealousness, is 10 years ahead of us on military social issues.
