Though he won’t say how, the Marines’ top homophobic general, James Amos, insists repealing DADT would put the lives of American soldiers at risk. Well, he sort of said how: repeal would make gays a “distraction” on the battle field. “When your life hangs on a line, on the intuitive behavior of the young man … who sits to your right and your left, you don’t want anything distracting you,” says Amos. “I don’t want to lose any Marines to distraction. I don’t want to have any Marines that I’m visiting at Bethesda (hospital) with no legs.” And if that’s true, how about we just repeal DADT for the men and women operating the drones over of the Middle East from Langley, Virginia? I mean, those things are controlled remotely, and it’s not as if some fag is going to accidentally burst into song and skip down a street laced with IEDs. AMIRIGHT?
