PMA now open to gays but don’t show it

Gays may enroll at the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) but risk a reprimand from a military school proud of its “macho” tradition if they display effeminate behavior.
PMA officials insist they do not discriminate against gays but they expect them to behave the way cadets should. In any case, they say, gay cadets eventually leave the PMA anyway before completing the four-year course because they cannot stand the rigors of training.
The PMA position appears to be in contrast to the stance taken by US President Barack Obama and the American Congress, which in September last year formally repealed a 17-year-old discriminatory law known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
The abolished American law banned openly gay men, lesbians and bisexuals from military service. Obama said the law’s repeal meant that members of the US Armed Forces “will no longer have to lie about who they are in order to serve the country they love.”
According to the PMA superintendent, Major General Nonato Peralta Jr., the country’s premier military training school does not turn away applicants because they are gay. He said that would be a violation of human rights.

ok lang naman kung gusto ng mga bading pumasok sa PMA. Ang importante ay mag-behave sila sa loob at no-touch kasi ito naman rin ang policy sa mga straight na lalake. otherwise , kung hindi mag-behave ay sexual harrassment ang tawag niyan or kung ang nag-ha-harass ay mataas na officer ay abuse of authority tawag niyan and grounds of termination yan. Meron na tayong nababalitaan na mga officer na minomolestiya nila ang kanilang mga subordinate, babae man o lalake at ito ay abuse of power talaga and violation of trust. Ang problema ngayon ay baka kailangan ng mga bading ng sariling shower/toilet at baka mahihiya or magiging uncomfortable yung kanilang mga clasmeyt na lalake =)

Mayroon akong kilalang gay rito sa Canada. His name is Alfredo. Ang daming pinaiyak na kapuwa bakla. Ang galing ding mag-vaccum ng sekreto ng mga baklang NPA rito sa Canada. Nahimaymay niya ang mga tirahan ng mga dalagang anak sa labas ni Joma! Inaapi rin siya ng mga NPA sa simbahang pinagsisimbahan niya. Pinasasakay sa kotse ang mga miyembro puwera siya hindi dahil bakla siya ngunit dahil AFP general ang tatay niya. "Manigas siya", sabi niya sa NPA na macho na binakla niya. Magaling! Tubong Batangas eh~!
