The marines tried to recruit me!

So I just got a call from a marine corp recruiter, apparently they're calling all of the seniors at my high school.

So I spent a few minutes discussing me classes, the two languages I take, my writing, and my AP courses, so he's telling me some future military careers and whatnot and about midsentence I say to him "Well you see,actually, I'm gay." He goes into a state of stunned shcok for a few seconds and then he's all, "Oh...well...that disqualifies you...er...um...openness."
I hung up and was laughing rather insanely (for some reason I feel triumphant at having shocked him) and my mom was all "What was that about" and I explained to her that the marines were attempting to recruit me and I had informed them that I was gay.
She took off right after....

So I guess you really can't be out in the military.

That happened to me too, a marine recruiter stumbling over the fact that I am gay.

I posted it here.

Excellent

Tell them you're gay, and they shut up. How to evade the draft?
"I'm gay." Works every time. :D

Q - "What is your sexual preference?"
A - "I have no sexual preference."
