no fun for our soldiers

. . . UCMJ [Uniform Code of Military Justice] basically says that . . . none of our soldiers, gay or straight, can have oral or anal sex, period, with anyone, same or opposite sex, even their married spouses (really).

John Aravosis at Americablog tells the tale.

For heaven's sake, this kind of Big Brother nonsense is the reason why this country is so screwed up. Worry about real problems -- like perhaps getting out of Iraq and keeping our soldiers alive while they're there -- instead of worrying about their private sexual practices.

I wonder what lucky private got the job of drawing the diagrams which depict the positions that are acceptable and unacceptable. Our taxpayer dollars at work ...

I agree wholeheartedly Andrea! Our sense of moral correctness is so warped! It's okay to torture the enemy, but not okay to pleasure one another during times of insane stress and fear. Great message we are sending to the thousands of young souls we have put in harms way to protect the profits of big OIL. Thank you Chief Executive, Thank you Mr. Cheney, Thank You Joint Chiefs of Staff. Thank you for involving us in this civil war without end or resolution, based on the lies you spoon fed us! Thank you American Public, for being the sheep that only we can be.

This is a bit crude, but I have to share. I was at a motorcycle rally this weekend and a woman was wearing a shirt that said, "Well, it ain't gonna lick itself".

Ha, looks like the military thinks that it is.

Well damn, looks like I'm lucky to have made it out with my honorable discharge. Guess I wasn't as well versed on the UCMJ as I'd thought. Whew!

Guess the top brass, not content with fuckin over an entire country, wants to keep all the fun to themselves.

Lynette,
***I just read your religious views on Tater's comments section and HAD TO TELL YOU...... MY life experience on this stuff (I was raised strict Mormon)was so very close to the emotions you colorfully described that I was amazed. For many of my younger years I thought I was so alone to never get that zinger of "truth" feeling on this stuff, but have been so happily fulfilled to find others ....and your story was powerful for me. THANKS for writing that.........a LOT.
