Don’t Call It A “Drag Show”

That was the “caveat” applied to a “party” for U.S. forces based at the Kadena Air Base in Japan. As reported in TheWeek.com:

“Gay and lesbian troops perform in drag on American military base

Troops based at the Kadena Air Base in Japan know how to party. On Saturday, six gay and straight service members applied some of their finest makeup and lip synced to "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" in what is believed to be first drag queen and king show on an American military base. The show was thrown in support for the base's recently formed OutServe-SLDN chapter, a nonprofit advocacy group for the army's LGBT community.

Navy Lt. Marissa Greene told Stars and Stripes she only expected to sell 75 tickets for the variety show, but ended up selling more than 400 in ten days. The event went through the same approval process as other on-base fundraisers go through, with the only caveat being that it was not allowed to be labeled a "drag show" in its publicity materials. The show was warmly received by spectators, who rocked out to performances by the likes of Manny Nuff and Chocolate Sunrise ("a crowd favorite," the website notes.)

Just a few years ago, performances like these would have been grounds for a possible discharge. The repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell has made it possible for events like this to occur.”

Yes – thanks to the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, “events” like this are now possible. Don’t you think that’s wonderful? If you do, then I’m happy for you. But if you DON’T, I want you to do yourself – and me – a favor:

On the 4th of November of this year, I want you to get up out of your chair. I want you to get up out of your chair and get into your car. I want you to get up out of your chair, get into your car, and drive to your voting location. I want you to get up out of your chair, get into your car, drive to your voting location, and go into that booth. I want you to get up out of your chair, get into your car, drive to your voting location, go into that booth, AND TELL THE DEMOCRATS – EVERYWHERE - THAT YOU’RE AS MAD AS HELL AND YOU’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!

(P.S. You can also vote by mail-in ballot, but by all means VOTE.)

Sebe. See MSN.com today. The cats out the bag. The question to me is...can they fight??

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 14:59 PM

I guess I missed it since I wasn't here yesterday. MSN.com (at least the front page) doesn't have anything related today. What did it say?

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Mar 09, 2014 at 11:00 AM

MSN.com called the Army's First Drag Show. I had read about it in the papers first. Saw no need to get more info. For all intents and purposes...to me anyway...it WAS a Drag Show.

My question is: Can they still engage in combat?

sebekm commented on Sunday, Mar 09, 2014 at 14:48 PM

Good question. Ask me in 20 years - presuming we're both still here - and the current social experiments are still ongoing in the military. (Fortunately - unlike some "progress" and "change," social experiments in the military can be killed quickly with the stroke of a pen.)

Regardless, Mr. Obama seems intent on making sure - at least in the short term - that we'll never find out, since a gutted military (which when you reduce the numbers to pre-WWI levels that's what you have) will make ANY commander-in-chief more hesitant to employ military force in a crisis.

Unfortunately, the only way we'll know is when the excrement hits the fan. Then - if they CAN'T - we find out the HARD way.

I'm just glad I'm the hell out and don't have to deal with the additional issues and complications. War fighting is tough enough when you only have to be concerned about the enemy.

I don't know Tot. Have encountered a scorned woman, or a scorned Drag Queen?

I think the pentagon may be on to something here.

Plus...I been married twice.

Huh?

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Mar 10, 2014 at 08:51 AM

I think scorned women or scorned Drag Queens may possess a deep well of anger. The only thing the Pentagon has got to learn how to do is channel that anger properly.

It could be one hell of a weapon. A special ops one.

sebekm commented on Monday, Mar 10, 2014 at 16:12 PM

What I see are deep wells of anger channeled against fellow soldiers. Just as you cannot legislate intelligence, you can't legislate emotions under stress.

All I can say is I'm glad I am out of there. I was there when they decided it was a good idea to house male and female AIT students in the same building - on the same floor. That was chaos enough. At least they didn't have them sharing the same room.
