The Boot Band Rule is infamous for allowing you to get away with things you otherwise wouldn’t.
It’s not gay if you have boot bands on.
Well, okay, it lets you get away with gay stuff. Why though? Well, there comes a time in every Marine’s career when he has to make a decision about how much of his sexuality he’s willing to let go of in order to stay warm in the field or otherwise do basically anything that involves being an enlisted Marine. Let’s be real here, most of the things you do will be extremely gay.
When the boot bands are on, anything and everything becomes encased in a strictly professional context.
If you’re wondering how Abe broke the desk… Well… Marines are gonna Marine I suppose.
On an unrelated note, I want to give a quick plug for mine and Duffel Blog’s new joint podcast, After Action! TL and DB have teamed up (me and Paul Szoldra) to talk about the news of the day, it’s some pretty fun stuff and you should check it out and subscribe here.
