Because I think it's happening to me.
So, a guy decides to serve his country, so he joins the military.
The guy is gay.
Because of military regulations (and no thanks to Bill Clinton), the guy has to keep his sexuality secret.
One of the gay guys “friends” outs him at a party.
One of his fellow soldiers beats him up because he is gay, breaking his nose. He is also threatened with a knife.
The gay guy is discharged from the Army.
His attacker is not prosecuted.
This is your America.
