We all thought “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” would protect us from getting infected with a dose of humanity by prohibiting gays in the military… and how truly stupid and ignorant it was.
But watch out, there is now an even bigger threat and it is called obesity.
In 2008, the military wrongly discharged 634 people under the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Recently though, over 5,000 were discharged for failing to meet military weight standards.
It looks like they got it wrong all this time. It wasn’t the gays that were the threat to the military’s readiness and morale; it was the Mess Hall that some soldiers may have been spending too much time in.
Perhaps now we can take the time to not only teach acceptance of others but also learn how to cook and eat healthy.
Just think, a new venue for Weight Watchers to hold meetings.
