A Lesbian couple have become the first to share in the US Navy tradition of the 'first kiss' since the repeal of the American military's "don't ask, don't tell" rule.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta of Placerville, California, descended from the USS Oak Hill amphibious landing ship and shared a quick kiss in the rain with her partner, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles.
Gaeta, 23, wore her Navy dress uniform while Snell, 22, wore a black leather jacket, scarf and blue jeans. The crowd screamed and waved flags around them.
"It's something new, that's for sure," Gaeta told reporters after the kiss. "It's nice to be able to be myself. It's been a long time coming."
For the historical significance of the kiss, there was little to differentiate it from countless others when a Navy ship pulls into its home port following a deployment. Neither the US Navy nor the couple tried to draw attention to what was happening and many onlookers waiting for their loved ones to come off the ship were busy talking among themselves.

For this stupidity we can thank the complicit Congressrats who apparently revel in this type of social experimentation with our military.
Repulsive videos at link.
God help us.
Blanking disgusting. Our country should be ashamed of what Obama and his pervert legions have done to our country.
Such seamen! We can count on these two to be brave warriors. /s
And let’s not forget the repeal of DADT was in a lame duck session of the last Congress. Dozens of recently defeated rats voted to foist their decrepit notions of social justice on our last remaining noble institution.
According to the contemporary accounts, Nelson last words were:
"Take care of my dear Lady Hamilton, Hardy, take care of poor Lady Hamilton". He paused then said very faintly, "Kiss me, Hardy". This, Hardy did, on the cheek. Nelson then said, "Now I am satisfied. Thank God I have done my duty".
I read that they were lovers for over a year, which means they were violating the law and regulations. So they are KNOWN liars and criminals. Nice.
Now: never mind.
I'm sure the perverts in the news media will include this one as a candidate for photo of the year.
I take some comfort in the fact that one day this aberration will correct itself.
....and these perverts are called “normal”.
Others say Lord Nelson’s last words were ‘Kismet, Hardy’. But since he’s dead we’ll never know.
There’s your MSM, gleefully promoting perversion again.
America - 1945 The Obama Nation - 2011
Nelson and Hardy faggots? Who’s next? Lord Malborough? Cromwell, Wellington, Cochrane?
Say it ain’t so!!! : )
It would not surprise me in the least if God forsakes us and turns us over to total evil. As a nation, we are spitting in His face.
This is disgusting!
You can bet your booty that Obama ordered this.
The race to the bottom in decadence and depravity continues. Where will it end?
Other countries are laughing their butts off.
Yep, we’ve got to be liberal. This is all over the MSM, with approvals being exressed all around.
Will I get flamed if I say these girls are pretty? If one looked like Rosie O’Donnell, would this picture have been so widely circulated??????
Romney just came out for Gays in the military too!
Every other Weatern country, to say nothing of Israel, allows gays to serve openly. I guess by other countries, you mean China, who are largely apathetic to this sort of thing happening in other countries.
The only traditions of the Royal Navy are rum, sodomy and the lash.
...and then do they go home and mate? Not important. No need for Ms. A and Ms. B to copy mommy and daddy and do the stuff that generates life. Just kissing and fondling and rubbing and hugging - maybe even with some toys.
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.
Time to scratch out “LIFE” - the rest is okay though. The other two can stay... in fact the math is quite proper.
When life (and marriage) were sacred / sacrosanct... but for that matter even practical, logical and rational:
When do they celebrate the first coitus?
Make no mistake, it was staged, right down to the classic lean back we see in the 1945 pic.
The photog had to be in their faces. Oh yea, it was staged for propaganda purposes. And the cheering flag waving crowd in the background, I seriously doubt it was for these lesbos’ PDA.
“Will I get flamed if I say these girls are pretty?”
They are purty, in a “manly” sort of way. Public displays of this sort are, rarely, well-executed and on the whole, offensive. Take it indoors! Yuk!
Just curious...aren’t there good odds that these two then went home to commit Sodomy....which has been in the news lately.
“At least it wasn’t two guys. “
Give it some time.
If this truly was a vote on board, I'm guessing this....and trust me, the media will never cover it this way....this girl and her lover were all about "THEM" in the interview, so I'm sure her shipmates knew she was a lesbian. That being the case and that she's kind of nice looking, the perverted sailors I knew would have wanted to see two hot lesbians kissing. That's just me now, but does this ida have a hint of truth to it?
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
From the article:
“Navy officials said it was the first time on record that a same-sex couple was chosen to kiss first upon a ship’s return. Sailors and their loved ones bought $1 raffle tickets for the opportunity. “
When they start showing two dudes kissing, the public will turn away from this policy - fast.
Presumably misattributed to Sir Winston.
About the Lezzie thingy and male heteros. I wouldn’t know, I’m a happily married man and a Freeper in good standing and I’m not gonna say anything that would upset things. But since you bring it up, I think I did read something in the New York Times or Pschology Today about that stuff.
I mean jeez, doesn’t Lesbianism defeat the entire purpose of having women on ships?
In terms of shock value, that picture is right up there with the one of Helen Thomas.
“I read that they were lovers for over a year, which means they were violating the law and regulations. So they are KNOWN liars and criminals. Nice.”
Don’t think so, before there was not a ban on gays, just don’t ask, don’t tell. I think they could be in relationship as long as they didn’t “tell”.
??? Of course they don’t mate. Do you think they shouldn’t be allowed to experience one of life’s physical pleasures?
The media here in Tidewater reported it was a raffle.
Gosh, what a watershed moment! It's the equivalent of Washington crossing the Delaware, Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg, or the raising of the flag on Suribachi.
What a hollow nation we've become when THIS is what we're "celebrating."
First things first: Homosexuals do not have sex. They have orgasms. There’s a difference.
Things like this make me happy to be “retired.”
You are entitled to your own opinion,
but you are not entitled to make up your own facts.
Until 9/20/2011 the law and the regulations prohibited any homosexual behavior, to include being in a same-sex romantic or sexual relationship.
DADT was a policy of the commander-in-chief (or Defense Secretary) to never “ASK” a soldier only so long as the soldier did not “TELL” (which meant a soldier was free to try to keep it a secret, but the soldier ran the risk of being discovered and then the command would enforce the law and regulations).
So, as I said, these women are known lawbreakers and liars because they were active homosexuals while DADT was in effect who successfully hid that from the command.
“Both women, ages 22 and 23 respectively, are fire controlmen in the Navy. They met at training school and have been dating for two years.” http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/45753034/ns/us_news-life/#.TvNcCvKPa8A
It is very simple: you are factually wrong.
Too bad when God creates those individuals that He knows will be homosexuals, He doesn’t remove their ability to have an orgasm.
