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.
