Gay Linguists

This is a problem that probably everyone who reads this recognizes, but it's worth mentioning that the Center for Studies of Sexual Minorities in the Military has discovered that 20 Arabic and 6 Farsi translators have been discharged by the military since 1998, most for being gay. Many of these came in 2004. It's nice to see that keeping our troops safe from having to serve with a man who likes to give another man a blowjob is more important than understanding our enemies and potential enemies in the war on terrorism.

Then again, it seems that one of the most important goals for Republicans is to protect everyone from the horrors of oral sex at the expense of nearly everything else.
