Rep. Duncan D. Hunter Still Trying To Stop ‘Transgenders And Hermaphrodites’ From Serving

California’s Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter, who sits on the House Armed Services Committee, will stupidly introduce legislation next week to halt the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Don’t worry, the bill isn’t going anywhere, and is really just a chance for Hunter — who previously spoke out about how repeal will enable “hermaphrodites” and “transgenders” to serve — to beat the drum of the conservative base. But in case you care Hunter, a Marine who served in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, wants to require each of the four military branch chiefs to sign off on repeal before it is certified, rather than just Obama, Gates, and Mullen. Apparently he’s got the support of up to 20 Republican colleagues, though I can’t imagine Speaker John Boehner wants to drag himself into this. (But: Maybe he does!) In the meantime can’t anti-gay Republicans rest easy knowing that they can still get gay soldiers kicked out of the military for having The Sex? (NB: Jesus, go back and listen to this man’s interview. HE IS AWFUL.)

      This is EXACTLY what is wrong with America. “The bond will be broken if you allow gays in the mix”. WTF? Some people seriously need to get their asses kicked but it’s too bad they’ll never muster the balls to spout their homophobia to another man’s face.

      What is this fool babbling about? “If we open the military to gays and lesbians . . .” The military has been open to gays and lesbians since 1993. He served with gays and lesbians. He probably hit on some of each.

      I don’t mind people having positions I disagree with, but complete ignorance just won’t do.

      Transgendered individuals can’t serve even once DADT is gone. The military still considers it a mental disorder and can refuse people who want to join or kick out those already in. So on the one hand this guy is talking out his ass, but on the other a DADT repeal still doesn’t remove discrimination from the military.

      Aaaaaaand unfortunately that man represents my Congressional district . . . what an asshat, but he is a voice which echoes perfectly the feelings the of conservative white flight suburbia down here in Sunny Southern California.

      That’s why Gates wanted some time to implement the new policy – you have to go through all the rules and regulations to find such nonsense and get rid of it. Just staying awake while tying to read this stuff is a major feat – it is that boring.

      I also don’t see why we should have hermaphrodites in the armed services. Why would the armed services enlist a few minor species of bugs and sea worms? What good could they serve?
