Some Marines worry the gays are too girly

I’m actually glad the NYT included this in their article about DADT. It shows how absurd some of the concern is in the Marines. If this guy would like to find out how girly gay Marines when it comes to fighting, I’m sure some would love to show him.

[A] friend of Private Tuck’s injected a note of skepticism. “It won’t be totally accepted,” said Pvt. Justin Rea, 18, from Warren, Mich. “Being gay means you are kind of girly. The Marines are, you know, macho.”
