How is it a mental disorder? It is not mentioned in DSM IV.

Except that colorblindness doesn't actually keep you from serving in the USCG or USN. It keeps you out of certain jobs, but those jobs require you to be able to tell colors apart to a high degree of detail. Others? Not so much.

Since I'm pretty peeved I'll actually see if I can deconstruct this drivel.*clears throat*
It’s a big deal because Gay is a political movement. - Umm, ok then. So is hermaphrodite a political movement too? How about heterosexual? Yeah, you're a dumbass.
It isn’t a gender choice.- Well, duh. It's gender preference. At least you said it isn't a choice, bravo!
In fact, it’s a psychological disorder and at the very least a reproductive disorder.- Well, I retract my previous bravo, and replace it with a wtf? It hasn't been defined as a psychological disorder since 1975/76 by the actual experts in this field!!! Reproductive disorder? You mean like when a woman has to have a hysterectomy to save her from cancer? Or someone who is born sterile? They can be straight, too you know? Imbecile.

Gay men and women are currently protecting your freedom they fight and give up their lives for your freedom. Show some respect and grow the fuck up. And gays already bunk with straights idiot. If the scientists did pinpoint the exact genetic cause of homosexuality they wouldn't try to cure it. The "ex- gay" movement try to do that but ignore science. And Genes! And people who are color blind serve in the army, I'm not to sure about the Air force though?

Being a Freeper is a psychological disorder.

> It’s a big deal because Gay is a political movement.
Only by necessity. If sexual minorities had equal rights - that is, sane rights - there wouldn't be a political movement to make things right. Obviously.
It's the same sort of thing that's happening in the arts and technology: if you're involved with the creative field at all, you're almost guaranteed to get politically involved, sooner or later, even to minor extent, because of the intellectual property rights situation. That's because the IPR laws are fucked up at the moment. If the world had sane IPR laws, artists and geeks wouldn't need to get to the politics - they would have more time to do the creative stuff.

It's Fuck It Day! Logic? No! Fuck it! Rationality? No! Fuck it! Making sense? No! Fuck it! Bigotry? Yes! Fuck it! Throwing words together to make salad? Yes! Fuck it! Celebrate Fuck It Day with your closest, closeted, homophobic friends today!

In this case I would guess that turning refers to recruiting a non-US citizen to become an asset to the CIA, in this case through blackmail.
I love the assumption, though, that it will be easy to find a "high level foreign contact" who is just aching to have a liason with one of America's spies... it sounds to me like this is a projection of some personal fantasy.

If scientists have to find a cure for something, why can't it be mind-numbing stupidity?
That would eliminate the vast bulk of right-wingers, creationists, and Tea-tards in one fell swoop!
Groups like Rapture Ready and Free Republic would become empty overnight.

What is this... I don't even?
To say the your hate has clouded your mind would be an understatement.

Apropos of that 'political gay' thing:
"In my first act since being appointed to the post of Homosexual-General, I'm going to paint the White House beige."

"We’re pretty open and accepting about homosexuality here, but this isn’t true in Central Europe"
On behalf of Central Europe: That's a lie. We tend to be a lot more open about homosexuality than most of the US, you idiot. Gay marriage has been legal in most of our countries for quite a while, too.

Again with the gays. Always with the gays. There are gays in the world, okay? End of story. Can we talk about something else now?

I'm trying to figure out why gays would make great spies..they've had lots of practice living double lives?
Anyway, teh gay appears to be due to an immune response by the pregnant woman. The more older brothers he has, the more likely a boy is to be gay. Read about the research by Anthony Bogaert, called the "older brother effect." And yes, the study has been duplicated.

Secret, AAAAGENT gay,
Secret, AAAAGENT gay,
They've given you a feather boa, and taken AW-AAAY your name!
Heh. Gay spies. That's a new one on me.
What I'm curious about is why the Gay aren't fit to be soldiers, when they already ARE soldiers.

Apparently this guy had a bunch of words and didn't know what to do with them.

The most hated person in the US would be a black gay atheist!

@Headache: A female/trans-female black/latino gay atheist.
7/27/2011 2:15:56 PM
Now I wish I was gay and had spying super powers, and imagine the fabulous disguises ... DANG!
(I wonder how people come up with that stuff, a comedian's dream)

@Nicole: A liberal female/trans-female black/Latino gay atheist.
There was a push to find a genetic cause for homosexuality, but that got hammered because if they found out it was genetic, then science would look for a cure.
How do you figure that? If anything, "t3h ghey" turning out to be genetic would only bolster the idea of civil rights for gay people, as it would then be, without a doubt, something that gay people wouldn't have any control over and thus couldn't choose. If anyone's argument would get destroyed by genetics, it would be yours and that of all the other fundies out there who screech that "gay is a choice". You would clearly be wrong, and would look really spiteful and stupid (then again, what else is new?).

"Being gay gives you a capability being straight can’t give you. "
What the fuck capability would that be?

Color blind people are most definitely allowed to serve. In fact red-green color blindness (the most common type) is preferred for snipers because it is easier to identify people in camoflauge.
7/27/2011 3:55:12 PM
Gays make the finest spies and can't share a bunk area with straights. What the flying whrgrbling fuck?
7/27/2011 3:59:21 PM
I admit that I must laugh out loud at the reasons he gives for gay people being good spies. You know what, that alone actually makes this less homophobic than your typical Freeper rant, as he actually does want gay people in a certain government service, just not the military. Of course, he was probably joking. And at least he isn't implying that Third World hellholes are better than the US because of their bigotry, unlike literally every other fundie who mentions the homophobia there.

Isn't it sad that my first thought reading this was, "for a Freeper, this is pretty forward-thinking?!?"
