Disorder?


This is coolbert:

Homosexuals in the Military.

It is with much trepidation and thought that I make this blog entry. Controversial subject matter again!!! Well, we don't want a bland blog, do we!!??

Television newscaster yesterday reports on the morning news that, "the U.S. military has decided to consider homosexuality to be a mental disorder." Furthermore, the same newscaster then goes on to say that, "the American Psychiatric Association has not considered homosexuality to be a mental disorder for some years now."

Well, this is true. American psychiatrists, under pressure from homosexuals, have not considered homosexuality to be a mental disorder since the early 1970's. That is over three decades now.

But the military persists in the notion of "mental disorder".

What is going on here?

Ever since the beginning of the Clinton administration, the military has had the policy toward homosexuals of "don't ask, don't tell!!".

Is still in effect. Has not changed. For over a decade now.

I can recall vividly seeing the C-Span Congressional hearings into the whole subject of homosexuals in the military.

Such military luminaries as General Powell [Chairman of the Joint Chiefs], and General Shalikashvili [Army Chief of Staff] are testifying.

And these two men and others, really heavy thinkers, are giving all the reasons WHY homosexuals SHOULD NOT BE allowed to be in the military.

Such reasons as:

* Moral will decline within the ranks of the straight troops.

* You will have to have separate barracks.

* You will have to have separate latrine facilities.

* You will have the danger in battle of blood splatter from a homosexual falling on a straight troop. [the obvious thing here is the risk of infection from AIDS!!]

NONE OF THESE ARE THE REAL REASONS WHY YOU DO NOT WANT HOMOSEXUALS TO SERVE IN THE MILITARY. ALL THOSE HIGH RANKING OFFICERS AND BRILLIANT MINDS NOT ONCE MENTIONED THE REAL REASON WHY!!!!

[I like to think of myself as being someone who knows the REAL reason why something is happening. Or the real reason as to what is going on!!]

Well, what is the REAL REASON WHY??

DANGER. Danger from the extreme suicidal tendencies of homosexual youth. [Youth here is defined from the teenage years up to the age of twenty four.]

IT IS WITHOUT QUESTION THAT HOMOSEXUAL YOUTHS HAVE A MUCH HIGHER INCIDENCE OF SUICIDE THAT STRAIGHT YOUTH!!

How much greater is a debatable question!! This I would agree with. Some authorities say that the rate of suicides among gays is thirty times greater than among straights!!

"Data concerning young homosexuals is somewhat unreliable. It appears that about one in three teen aged suicides is by a gay or lesbian. Since homosexuals represent only about 5% of the population, gays and lesbians are greatly over-represented."

[this figure of 5 % is probably too high. More like 1 % with 2 % at the most!!]

"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimated 3 that "as many as 30% of completed youth suicides each year" are performed by gays and lesbians. Unfortunately, many information sources have quoted the 30% as if it is an absolute figure. The Department indicates that it is 30% or fewer."

"Now, a psychologist has published the results of two studies that-once again-expose the Homosexual Urban Legend that teens who have homosexual feelings are committing suicides in record numbers."

[these figures are called and Urban Legend by some!!]

"Recent studies in the USA and Canada suggest that homosexuality issues are involved in up to one third of young men under 24 who suicide. A recent Australian study replicates these findings."

[The figures have been replicated. 1/3 of suicides are gay youth!]

"Suicide is the leading cause of death among gay male, lesbian bisexual and transsexual youth. Gay males were six times more likely to make an attempt than heterosexual males. Lesbians were more than twice as likely to try committing suicide than the heterosexual women in the study. A majority of the suicide attempts by homosexuals took place at age 20 or younger, with nearly one-third occurring before age 17."

"Several recent studies have shown that gay, lesbian and bisexual people, particularly adolescents and young adults, are at substantially increased risk of suicidal behaviours and suicidal thinking. For gay, lesbian and bisexual young people (up to age 27), studies in the United States have found risk of suicide attempt ranging from 3 1/2 to nearly 14 times that experienced by heterosexual young people."

[that figure of up to 14 times is still pretty significant!!]

"A recent Australian study found that gay-identified young men (aged 18 - 24) were 3.7 times more likely to attempt suicide. Most of these attempts occurred after the person had self-identified as gay, but before having a same-sex experience and before publicly identifying themselves as gay."

"Overall, studies of completed suicides have not found gay youth over-represented, however, studies focused on suicidal ideation and suicide attempts show significantly higher rates among gay and lesbian youth compared to heterosexual youth."

Again, the figures are debatable. But agreed that the rate is MUCH greater. Whether that rate is thirty times, twenty times, ten times, the rate is greater. Without question!!

What do you want to do? Arm a person with suicidal tendencies with an assault rifle [M-16], 120 rounds of ammo and four hand grenades? [the fighting load of the common soldier] NO, of course not!

Do you want to put a person with suicidal tendencies at the diving controls of a submarine? NO, of course not!

Do you want to put a person with suicidal tendencies IN A NUCLEAR EQUIPPED UNIT! NO, of course not!

You could probably go on and on with such examples.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE FOLKS WITH A MENTAL DISORDER TO HAVE ACCESS TO WEAPONS AND WEAPONS SYSTEMS DESIGNED TO KILL PEOPLE AND BREAK THINGS!!

It is not worth the risk. Suicidal tendencies do constitute a mental disorder. A mental disorder not worth the risk in the military.

Now you know the real reason WHY!!

[when you take a military physical, you have to complete a long list of questions as part of the medical exam form. One of those questions is whether you are or not a homosexual. This may very well constitute a legal document. Failure to answer correctly is a crime under UCMJ. You could be prosecuted for answering with a lie!! Can anyone consider it to be good that a persons starting out their career in the military begins by telling a lie from the get-go!!!]

In the Venona Secrets, by Romerstein and Breindel, there is mentioned the career of Philip Faymonville, a notorious communist homosexual officer of the WWII era. Over the years, there have been persistent stories of a gay conspiracy centered in military intelligence, whose participants were loyal to the Russian nation. For several decades now, the primary recruitment mechanism postulated, of gay blackmail, would have become less and less likely to turn anyone. Faymonville had power from Harry Hopkins, identified under Venona as Stalin's man with great influence in FDR's White House. The conspiracy, if it existed as stated above, would have been set up by Faymonville's protege's.
If it existed now, this suggests several methods to root out suspects. One would be to test for a mix of pathogens which are common to gay men, but rare in others. From the other direction, there could be followed the links of who was promoted rapidly, by those linking back to Faymonville, through intermediaries.
