Women sailors share first gay kiss in US Navy
The Telegraph ^ | 12/22/2011 | AP Staff

Posted on 12/22/2011 7:02:32 AM PST by IbJensen

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 (L) kisses her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek in Virginia Beach Photo: AP)

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.

This nation is so fouled up, thanks to the central socialist government. To experiment with our military by introducing troubled homosexuals among the ranks is downright treasonous!

For this stupidity we can thank the complicit Congressrats who apparently revel in this type of social experimentation with our military.

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.

Others say Lord Nelson’s last words were ‘Kismet, Hardy’. But since he’s dead we’ll never know.

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away..... What was once immoral is now normal officially. When the populace gets used to that, official normality will take another step down the road to depravity... Ultimately, anything will be sanctioned by the State!

...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.

1+1=2

When life (and marriage) were sacred / sacrosanct... but for that matter even practical, logical and rational:

1+1=3

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.

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!

Rum sodomony and the lash... - Churchill

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?

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. “

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?

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”.

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.

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).

http://www.armyg1.army.mil/hr/command/docs/TriFold.pdf

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.
