AUTHOR: Joe Rehyansky
FORUM: The Daily Caller
THESIS: "Lesbians should be allowed to serve, gay men (hereafter 'gays') should not."
ARTICLE OPENS WITH:
Author recalling once showering with "40 or so friends, acquaintances,
and virtual strangers," an anecdote with no apparent connection to the
rest of the article.
WHY MEN 'ARE MORE PROMISCUOUS': Because of insurmountable evolutionary forces.
EARLY HUMAN HISTORY, NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH TARZAN: "It
fell to men to swing through the trees and scour the caves in search of
as many women as possible to subdue and impregnate — a tough job but
someone had to do it."
LIFE FOR ANCIENT WOMEN: "They did not have access to Mace, police whistles, Lady Smith .38s, or domestic violence hotlines."
VAGUE DENUNCIATION OF GAY MEN: "The associations and lifestyles of [male] gays encourage these opposing natural forces."
CLEAR DENUNCIATION OF GAY MEN:
"Most men who are sexually attracted to other men can and do indulge
their promiscuous urges with little or no restraint; i.e., it’s 'party
time' all the time."
HOW GAY MEN ENDANGER THE MILITARY:
"Gays spread disease at a rate out of all proportion to their numbers
in our population ... A significant population of gays in the military
has the potential for disastrous health consequences."
DID GAY MEN SERVE IN WW2?: Author states they did not. It's unclear why, how he knows this, or how they presumably avoided the draft.
ORIGINAL REPORTING: Author notes that "the Internet [is] saturated with gay porn."
CLOSING STATEMENT: Reminder that military showers are filled with "lithe naked bodies" and "beefcake parades."
