John43620 saidSince when has the American Gay Community demanded the right to fight in this war and defend America? All I've seen is a lot of pissing and moaning about it.
I don't see this as funny at all, and that's a fake general, his uniform is all screwed up!
Yeah, that uniform was pretty poor, wrong in at least a dozen major ways. But I did like the jokes hidden in the realistic-looking news headlines crawling across the bottom of the screen.
The American gay community has indeed made military service an important issue in the overall gay rights struggle. The abolishment of DADT and achieving open service for gays is always on the list of objectives.
And many gays have already chosen to serve their country in uniform, even if closeted and at personal risk under the current policy. But I make the distinction between wanting the right to be in the military, versus wanting to fight in the Iraq War, 2 separate issues you seem to be lumping together.
The Iraq War is widely unpopular among many segments of the US population, and so I see no dishonor if the GLBT community has not been clamoring for us to go fight there specifically. Yet military service might require it in any case, and still we ask for that right of wearing our country's uniform, to wherever we may be deployed. I think your criticism is mistaken.
