Ex-Navy SEAL Warns Gay Special Ops: Don’t Wear ‘The Bows And The Earrings In The Barracks’

Unbeknownst to the editors of the Washington Times, gays are already members of the military’s elite special ops teams, so this idea that somehow they’re going to infiltrate the Army Green Berets and Navy SEALs post-DADT and, like, make it all gay isn’t just ridiculous, it’s misinformed. But I do love reading soundbites of former and current special ops discussing “outwardly gay” (translation: prissy) troops and how they’re somehow not manly enough to throw down. As retired Rear Adm. George R. Worthington, a former Navy SEAL who left service in 1992, says: “I don’t think there is going to be that many of them [gays] that want to sign up for SEALs anyway because of the closeness and the tightness of the training. My opinion is that they’re probably more clerical oriented. Medical profession. Corpsmen. Stuff like that. … Put the word out. If you hit on somebody, you’re going to get in a fistfight. You may not like it. I just think if they maintain their composure, they don’t bother anybody. … It just depends on how they comport themselves. If they start breaking out the bows and the earrings in the barracks, that might cause a little trouble. That becomes a good order and discipline sort of thing. The services are going to have to tighten up on regulations.” It’s as if this guy has never knowingly met a gay person. Which, actually, might be true.
