Combat Troops: Put on Your Big Boy Pants

Are we really relying on our combat troops to protect us from terrorists? Fight our wars?

Aren’t these the same men who are resisting the change in Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? These big strong men are afraid of “unwanted romantic advances”?

Well, us teensy little ole women have been dealing with unwanted romantic advances all our lives.

I am so F-U-C-K-I-N-G tired of hearing this.

Put on your big-boy pants.

And ... meanwhile, reports are coming out about female soldiers and suicide. Often there is history of sexual harassment or rape. (Maybe it's psychological projection on the part of these men ... they're afraid gay men will do to them what they've been doing to women?)

However, some folks even believe these alleged suicides are really cover-ups for murder by their fellow soldiers. To read more, go here.

Remember though, these men who are experiencing anti-gay hysteria are the minority -- the majority of troops are okay with the change in policy.

Stumble It!

You called this one! Having been one of the sexually harassed female troops, yeah, some of those psychologically projecting asshats need to grow the hell UP.
