    Closeted US Navy boys have been fucking transgenders and drag queens in the Philippines for 100's of years. Straight US Navy boys have been taking Filipino women back to the states and marrying them for years. It's about time the closeted US Navy boys get the same rights as the straight ones. icon_wink.gif

    Well, not quite hundreds of years, not until the Philippines became a US possession following the Spanish-American War in 1898. The US Navy had earlier been involved during the Philippine Revolution against Spanish rule in 1897, aiding the rebels.

    It was only after acquisition of the Philippines that the US established a permanent military presence in the country, now a US colony, which lasted until final independence was granted in 1946, following US-led Philippine liberation from Japanese invaders during WWII. Treaties with the US permitted military bases, particularly naval, to remain in operation during the post-war period, which remained quite extensive, especially during the Korean and Vietnam wars.

    During my Army career I knew many soldiers, enlisted & officer, who brought non-US wives home with them from the places where they had served. These women included Korean, Japanese, German, British, Italian, etc, and, as you state, Filipino. Just wanted to clarify for younger RJers here that this was not (actually still isn't) a practice limited to Filipino women.

    Politely speaking, the Philippines has bigger fish to fry - keep a country from going into shambles.

    Gay civil rights falling in the top 10 federal priorities would be a miracle. Also bear in mind the Roman Catholic church has an iron grip on the society as a whole and practically controls the voting.

    THIS.
    I'm Filipino, and I know that right now, there's too much socio-political crap going on down there, Gay marriage would be the last thing in everyone's mind to tackle on. Sorry to say, but the Church does have major control over everything there. Never in a Thousand years, unless the masses wake up and realize the massive corruption the Church has done to their society.

    ^^ This x10000

    The church has such a big influence on voters in the Philippines that it's practically a theocracy. I don't expect voters there to entertain the thought of gay civil rights any time during my lifetime.

    Yup, what they've said. When I read the news clip, i rolled my eyes so quickly it hurt. The philippines is going to be light years away from equality. Roman catholicism is a juggernaut there.

    That's what Jose Rizal tried to do in the late 1800s and he was killed for it. Moral of the story: don't mess with the Church, that bitch gonna cut you down and pull yo weave out!

    It's ironic that he became the Martyr/Hero of our country yet everyone back there still hold the outdated obsolete views of the Spanish Catholic church in high regard to the point where they even control the politics.
    So many people there don't even realize its the limited views and the tyranny of the Church that's preventing the country from progressing towards the 21st century. It's pathetic. I'm glad I left there, they probably would've burned me at the stake!
