I suppose I should have seen this coming. Freedom to Marry and Outserve/SLDN have put out a video of two servicemen stripping today that "viscerally captures the cruelty" to soldiers because they can't get married.

It always boils down to complaining about marriage, doesn't it? God forbid we just honor LGBT soldiers for their service and sacrifice - instead of showing off their scars and bruises for political gain.

This video plays into every damn stereotype of our community. It objectifies the two men as sexual objects and takes a very serious subject - wounded veterans - and turns it into another way to insert marriage rights where it has no business.

Giving the soliders the right to marry their partners won't let them escape war unscathed. To imply that it will is simply disgusting.
