Too top to be gay


One way to avoid serving in the Turkish army is to be gay, but only if you’re a bottom. For a while they demanded photographic evidence but these days they only do a psychological evaluation.

There's an easy answer to why only bottoms are seen as "gay" (often with a derogatory implication).
Ancient Greece is often seen as very gay-friendly, but the truth is, sex was mostly seen as a matter of penetration, and by extension domination. The gender of the person a man slept with didn't matter as much as their sexual position. This is why Ancient Greece was so misogynistic, because women could only be the "submissive one" during sex, and men who bottomed were seen as weak because they had the "position of the woman".
Same thing today with all the "So who's the top and who's the bottom?" nonsense about gay male couples that basically became Gender Roles 2.0, because societal norms still view sex (gay or straight) as a tool of domination rather than an act of intimacy. It also explains why lesbian relationships were completely ignored in Ancient Greece, because there was no man involved.

Homophobia is just the weird inbred child of misogyny and toxic masculinity.

The US policy of gays in the military is basically "ain't none of my business" from 1994 to 2011 the US had Don't ask don't tell, that allowed closeted LGBTQ members to join the military but didn't allow "open LGBTQ" members to join, it wasn't until it was repleaded that allowed open LGBTQ members can join the military

also, the US hasn't had a draft since 1973 and is an all-volunteer army

during The American revolutionary war a gay Prussian general, Baron von Steuben trained and disciplined American soldiers and even wrote a "Blue Book" of military guidelines that some are still used today

Huh, you'd think they'd be scared of tops. Or is it because bottoms are seen as weak? Homophobia is weird. Never made sense to me.

With reference to US "Don't Ask Don't Tell," it was actually a progressive reform when it was implemented, because before that if they caught you doing "gay stuff," or visiting a gay bar, or hanging with the wrong people, or reading the wrong publications you got a dishonorable discharge. DADT still kicked people out for telling, but they didn't really stop asking. It was really Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Be Too Easy To Catch.

Turkey's policy, like many of their other policies and laws, is absurd to the point of almost being a crime against humanity.

Soooo...if a couple switches even just once, is the usual top who gains the exemption, or the usual bottom who loses it? This seems a splendid example of a loophole-cheatable law LOL

I'm more surprised they haven't made it illegal.
