Terminal Lance #223 “What Happens in the Field Stays in the Field”
September 4, 2012
There’s a lot of homoerotic humor in the Marine Corps. What do you expect from a bunch of men with nothing but their own bodies to make jokes about? As I’ve already mentioned, no repeal of any policy could possibly make the Marine Corps any more gay than it already was.
So many times I’ve heard the various expressions, “what happens in the field stays in the field” and “it’s not gay if you have combat boots on.”
Regardless, obviously there is a line that would make any straight Marine uncomfortable. I do believe that most people are over the initial butthurt of repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell by now. I think probably the lamest argument against it that I’ve heard is, “I’m afraid I’m going to room with a gay guy and he’ll try to have sex with me.”
My advice to you if this extremely unlikely scenario happens:
Don’t have sex with him.
Anyway, I don’t really have anything profound to say here today. The first day of my senior year starts today and I barely slept last night. There’s serious consideration for me to reduce the strip to a weekly effort (Friday), as producing three strips a week (2 online and 1 in the Marine Corps Times) is starting to wear me very thin.
In any case, I hope you had a good long weekend. Get back to work, fucker.
