Navy clears gay WWII vet's record

Hard to believe the stats here-- 100,000 soldiers and sailors were kicked out of the military between WWII and 1993 for being gay. Insane, and really a shame to our country. So strange that we could have been so backward for so long, and damage all these American lives in the process.

John, the world was backwards for tens of thousands of years before the current era. Fifty  years give or take is nothing, and progress was made. Rather rapidly, in fact.


Oh, of course. It's just amazing to think that the country that you love and admire (and which is still, in almost every way better than every other nation out there) could have been so evil and unfair with regard to matters such as race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Just hard to believe that people spend so much time being assholes, and for what.

Ok, my naive comments of the day are over.
