Vietnam Vet Joe Rehyansky’s Pro-DADT Spiel Drops ‘Let Straight Male Soldiers Rape Lesbians’ Argument

Tucker Carlon’s The Daily Caller, which grants circus clown Tony Perkins space to spew, temporarily removed arguably the worst part of a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell column written by Tennessee’s part-time judge and Vietnam War army vet Joe Rehyansky, which called for lesbians to be allowed to serve in the military because it would give straight men a chance to rape the gay out of them. All without GLAAD lifting a finger. Except now the article is back online, again making the case that lesbians in the military are fine because they don’t face the pressure to put out. Also still part of the piece: The argument that gay men should still be banned, because they are going to prey straight soldiers in the shower. The only thing missing from the original and the republished version is the conclusion: “[M]y solution would get the distaff part of our homosexual population off our collective ‘Broke Back,’ thus giving straight male GIs a fair shot at converting lesbians and bringing them into the mainstream.”
