Terminal Lance “Happy 240th Birthday, Navy!”
October 13, 2015
Well today is the 240th birthday of the US Navy, and I’m sure they’re having a gay old time over there.
I kid, I kid; of course the Navy isn’t completely gay. It is worth noting, however, that for every straight Corpsman I met there was at least 1 or more gay ones. Not that any of that matters these days, with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell a distant memory and homoerotic courting now completely acceptable. Say what you will about the military, but you can’t deny that it’s actually been significantly more progressive than most parts of the country.
Think about it, there’s no actual discrimination based on race or sexuality now. Granted, women still face disgustingly high sexual assault numbers and the whole females in the infantry thing is a hot issue at the moment.
Still, people are treated fairly equally in the military compared to most places.
Unless you’re a boot. Then you’re a piece of shit and you should feel bad.
Anyway, Happy 240th Birthday Navy! You know we love you.
To celebrate, here’s the totally straight volleyball scene from Top Gun.
Okay, I’m gonna go back to work. You might not hear from me for a bit while I spend the next week without any sleep trying to get this book ready for print.
