. . . responsible for Bosnian genocide
Thus the report in the Mail on a statement made by retired General Sheehan to the US Congress. It's not quite what he said, but what a headline!
Tsk, tsk. As a military man, he really should know that the Spartans believed that a phalanx that phux together, stays together.
Some of the most testosterone-laden men I have ever met were gay. I mean guys who would shag a rock-pile if they suspected there was a snake underneath. Whenever I hear the Lumberjack song it calls to mind being propositioned earnestly by a very large, hirsute and drunk Canadian, who fortunately passed out.
I suppose Sheehan does have a point about combat traditionally being for men what child-birth is to women - but where did he get the idea that gays are more likely to fail the test than heteros? Rather the opposite, I suspect, given what gays have to endure when they are growing up.
There are a number of attributes that one can fairly associate with male homosexuality, but lack of courage is not one of them.
