    Having lived in Italy, I can contribute that pretending to be gay was one of the leading excuses to get out of compulsory military service.

    If you claimed homosexuality as a reason to be excused from service, the doctors would sometimes retaliate by declaring you mentally unstable in general, which would lead to all sorts of consequences.

    So this is the weirdest sort of discrimination: not discriminated against because he is gay, but because the doctors thought he was just pretending to be gay.
