Ex-Navy SEAL Rear Admiral On DADT Repeal: "If they start breaking out the bows and the earrings in the barracks, that might cause a little trouble"

Today’s DADT Repeal “Douche of the Day” comes to us courtesy of The Washington Times, the right-wing daily that bills itself as an alternative to the Washington Post, (Which is pretty damn right wing itself) in an article the Times published to stir the pot called “Special forces wary of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ repeal” in which it interviews homophobic military officers including (and I kid you not) REAR Adm. George R. Worthington, a former Navy SEAL. who retired  in 1992More spin and homophobia from the right who just can’t admit failure.  And if you think the above quotes are bad you should read the comments from The Washington Posts crackpot fundie readers.

“I don’t think there is going to be that many of them that want to sign up for SEALs anyway because of the closeness and the tightness of the training,” Adm. Worthington said….
“Put the word out,” said Adm. Worthington. “If you hit on somebody, you’re going to get in a fistfight. You may not like it. I just think if they maintain their composure, they don’t bother anybody.”
Said Adm. Worthington: “It just depends on how they comport themselves. If they start breaking out the bows and the earrings in the barracks, that might cause a little trouble. That becomes a good order and discipline sort of thing. The services are going to have to tighten up on regulations.”

It’s over and done haters, get over it.

But then again I suppose a REAR Admiral would know about hitting on guys in the barracks, eh?
