Sfgate reports that “The military is accepting openly gay recruits for the first time in the nation’s history.” The perfect excuse for posting this cute picture of innocent male bonding I took during Fleet Week. Speaking of which – how does the military prove that someone is gay? The “Explainer” explains that:
“Technically, the military doesn’t fire people for being gay—it fires them for engaging in “homosexual conduct.” This comprises: touching a member of the same sex for sexual gratification (including handholding or hugging), marrying someone of the same sex, or announcing that you’re gay.” (Slate.com)
Holding hands for sexual gratification! – this country is full of depraved sex practices we Europeans would never dream of. Anyway, the military’s gaydar was apparently re-calibrated at some point during the last three decades. How else would you explain the Navy’s official friendly cooperation in the production of this video in 1978:

Waffen all überall, aber dafür pingelig mit allem, was menschlich ist, zumindest offiziell.
Versteh einer das Volk!

Schade. Ich kann es immerhin abspielen, wenn ich zu youtube surfe (aber “Einbetten deaktiviert”).
@ilse: These guys were mainly preoccupied with their serious tobacco fetish. During the 15 minutes we saw them, they puffed about 4 cigarettes each. I guess US Navy ships are a smoke-free environment 😉
