. He and Kenneth Branaugh are the best Shakespearean actors on the planet, if you want this former theatre major's opinion. I'd so dig hanging out with Sir Ian for coffee or just some chit-chat. Keep the flag flying Gaydalf!! Shakespeare

Green Man: I can't believe that "battle readiness" is one of the criteria to see if gays can serve openly in the military. What do they think is going to happen? That the gay soldiers would try to show up in pink camouflage, thus, endangering the location of the other troops? Or, that the gay soldier down in a fox hole with a straight soldier would try to make-out with him while bullets are flying around them? Come on, get real John McCain. Do straight soldiers pause in the middle of a fire fight to take the time and talk about the girls they are going to bang when they get home? Why would any sexual preference matter when people are shooting at you. The only thing a non-gay soldier would care about in a situation like that would be that the gay soldier can shoot straight; not whether or not he's straight in his sex life!!
John McCain is a fossil and a fraud. He doesn't understand the views of the younger generations any more than he understands how to not be a douche bag. The fact of the matter is that for the younger generations, (18-40) gay rights are long over-due. And here's a news flash for John McCain; it's those very same young people who dominate the military of today. A recent poll found nearly 3/4 of them saying they wouldn't have a problem with gays serving in the military.
A good portion of our allies in Europe and elsewhere have allowed gays to serve for decades now. The world didn't end and their armies are still strong and effective. The idea that gays don't know how to be soldiers is bigoted and just plain false. The fact of the matter is that brave gay men and women have been serving and excelling in the military since the very first military. It is believed that one of the greatest generals ever was bisexual. His name? Alexander the Great.
And, some of the great samurai warriors of fuedal Japan are believed to have been homosexual or bisexual. Greece was well-known for allowing homosexuality in society and, so surely many gays served in their military. Besides, a gay soldier can shoot a gun, throw a grenade or fly a plane just as well as a straight soldier. A person's sexual orientation obviously has nothing to do with whether they can fight on a battlefield.
