Joe Rehyansky, judge and Vietnam veteran, wrote on conservative news site The Daily Caller that he believed that gay men should be excluded from military service due to their inability to prevent themselves from spreading disease. He then went on to say that gay girls are ok! Cuz then all those straight men they won't find anywhere else can get a crack at converting them.
"Lesbian military personnel, who Mr Rehyansky praised for their 'medical and administrative specialties', should be allowed to serve because they apparently have low sex drives.
"His final argument, which has now been removed by The Daily Caller, was as follows: 'My 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.'"
Bloggers are criticizing the comment, saying Rehyansky is advocating corrective rape, a practice which sadly occurs with some frequency on lesbians in Africa.
Aside from the obvious, I can think of a few things the lesbian soldiers I knew in the military might have to say about such conversions. Like, for instance "Try it. I've got a gun."
