Pentagon doc calls gays disordered; responsively, we begin calling Pentagon 'Trapezoid'

by Jeremy Hooper

  It's been discovered that a certain Pentagon document, one centered on retirement and discharge policies for service members with physical disabilities, classifies homosexuality as a mental disorder. This despite the fact that mental health practitioners haven't made that mistaken classification since the early 70's.

So why the Pentagon regression? Why nostalgia, of course.

It's unclear at this time if any other Defense Dept. documents make the same faulty categorization; it might also have to remain unclear, as your humble scribe's crippling case of 'mo renders him incapable of processing complex processes.
