I took care of all the soldiers under my command equally, including the gay & lesbian, and was never prejudiced against them (and my gaydar could pick them out in a flash). Actually, few US officers were bigoted against gays in my time..
You had gaydar when you were in the service? I thought you didn't know that you were gay back then? Looks to me like you were indeed LIVING A LIE back then! You are such a LIAR!
Of course I had gaydar. In the same way that I was born gay. Here's a story I've told here before:
In 1995 I was fortunate to have a gay mentor in Seattle when I came out. Who hammered into me the importance of safe sex (he was poz himself). He didn't bring me out himself, but he was my guide when it happened.
And he explained the gay world to me, and mention gaydar. "What's that?" I asked him.
"That's short for gay radar, a way gay men can sense when other guys are also gay. But not every gay guy can do it."
"You mean knowing when another guy is gay? What's special about that? I've always known when other guys were gay, even when I was in the Army."
"Well, DUH!" he said to me. "Of course you could, because you've always been gay, even if you didn't know it yourself. It's a natural gay ability."
Well, I don't know if gaydar is implanted in the genes or not, but I guess I always had it. What I didn't have was the ability to recognize my own orientation. Possibly the hypnosis therapy my parents subjected me to in 1962 may have delayed things, I dunno. Or just my own desire to conform and be "normal" as my family expected.
Was I clueless & stupid? Sure, and criticize me on that count all you like. But don't call me liar, because I never lie.
But just out of curiosity, wasn't your former account here terminated for TOS/TOU violations? And do you now have 2 accounts here that were started on the same date, 2 months ago?
Aren't Dean_Aane and deanaane both you? Both joining on 3-20-11? Just curious about the coincidence.
