Navy Captain Responsible For Lewd Videos Suspended From Post!

Good! This is exactly what needs to happen!

We reported yesterday that the U.S. Navy was investigating top officer, Captain Owen Honors, for his part in a series of leaked videos from 2006 and 2007 that featured him making homophobic slurs, yelling expletives, mimicking masturbation, and displaying other lewd behavior while he as second in command on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.

While many have come to his support, and claimed that the videos were 'morale-boosters' and taken out of context, the Navy doesn't seem to think so, and have temporarily suspended Honors of his post while the matter is investigated!

Fair enough, we say!

We imagine that there are a lot of other ways to keep crew's morale high without having to resort to homophobic slurs and lewd gestures, so we're not sure that we buy that as an excuse!

What do U think?? Was Capt. Honors out of line??

    Typical overreaction. Gays have no sense of humor.



  2. 2

    I'm gay…….and as far as I'm concerned, they are a bunch of bored men wanting to have fun. (Like the cross dressing Afgan guys singing Lady Gaga and made a video.) I think it is an overreaction that's a total waste of time.

    Typical stupid post from an asshole.

    Re: Mad Dog

    By the way, I do have a sense of humor. I would LOL to watch someone empty a 90 year old man's colostomy bag into your mouth. :)

    normally i don't agree with homophobic remarks… but seriously, give this guy a break.

    it happened 4-5 years ago. he was just joking around. get over it.

    this is not worth him loosing his job.



  6. 6

    It's amazing to me how a very small minority that was born with bad corrupt genetics have any power…Gays should be eradicated.



  7. 7

    I am appalled by the political correctness and over sensitive nature of our America! WTF?



  8. 8

    Unfortunately, this is what we will have to look forward to with gays in the military. Political correctness will destroy one of the best militarys in the world.

    Interesting how everyone thought that Gwyneth Paltrow rap with Jimmy Kimmel was funny, even though it was making fun of African American music. Why is it only gays who can't be made fun of?

    Of course he was out of line. But be careful what you wish for, Prez. You are talking about a Navy Captain with almost 30 years of service and his pension and everything he has worked for on the line. He should be sternly reprimanded and apologize. But not fired.

    THIS““““` happened 4 years ago ““ NOT 4 days or even 4 weeks ago.
    DROP IT!!

    Perez, you wont be happy until this man takes his own life.

    Re: Wild-Guitar – Such a cleaver response. Did you take time out of your Mensa meeting to post it?

    You have zero clue, Mario….none.

    My husband is on this ship….. I dont agree with everything that was said on the videos AT ALL.. however, i understand the purpose of them. The poeple on the ship needed a break from their groundhog like days at sea… Plus it was investigated years ago and now there is action being taken? right before they go on deloyment? I don't think that all the work he has put in over the last 30 years should be for nothing, the punishment I believe will be a tad bit harsh

    I have to say I am extremely disappointed. It's absolutely ridiculous that someone would applaud a man potentially losing his career which means his livelihood. Despite how anyone feels about his actions, they were done with good intentions. He put himself out there for his crew, and if you are a non military members then you have no idea how much of a rarity this is. That man that so many of you are condemning did quite a bit for his crew. This action taken against him has just demolished the officer enlisted rapport. There will no longer be an officer willing to step out for one of his sailors for fear of this type or reprisal. This is not a man being punished for a crime he committed; however, this has been reduced to crusaders looking for someone to persecute since the repeal of DADT. Nothing more than some egotistical ass hole adding to a list of "look what I've done" to ensure he gets reelected. This action was not fair nor was it equal. For a community of people who want full equality, the lesbian gay community should not be supporting this action. If this is where America is going, I have an overwhelming feeling of grief.



  16. 16

    I agree that he should be punished, even though it should have happened four years ago when the videos originally surfaced. Sounds like there are others that should have their jobs on the line, as well. However, I do find it 100% BS that you are so thrilled he is suspended. I agree with the person who said you will not be completely satisfied until this man offs himself. And then we'll be out a leader, someone who is defending our lives, our country, something a little more significant than the fact that you are so butt hurt you can't drop it and move on. Apparently your feelings are more important than having someone experienced out there leading our troops. You can never drop it. You are all over anyone that says anything positive about gays, and the ones who don't are just garbage to you. Again, good job. Hope you're proud.



  17. 17

    I haven't heard the term lewd used in many a year.

    I don't know. His crews seemed to love him. He's suspended while it's a hot potato, anyway. I guess they can't appear to do nothing under the pressure, but they could. (Do nothing.) Sigh. I guess we'll see what the investigation unearths in total.

    Seriously Perez how about you stop focusing so much on all of the "wrongs" done to gays and focus on all of the wrongs you do to everyone you constantly belittle on this site. The man made a few jokes to lighten up the mood so this is hardly worth him losing his career over.

    Re: mizzbritt1217 – As former Army, it isn't the video that ticks me off, it's the fact that the crew had that much time to make it. I spent a year in the Iraqi wastelands, with no shower (let alone two girls in it). Movie night? What the hell was that?! Fridays we cleaned our weapons, did perimeter security, and hoped a buddy got a new book or CD in a care package so we could hopefully trade off. Don't even get me started on the camels, wild dogs, and dung beetles. Stress? Lady, I would have showed you stress. The one thing we could count on was our Commissioned Officers to hold us to the highest standards, and be battle ready. This "XO" looks like he was running a frat house, not a unit that would be disciplined enough to go into battle. I would rather follow orders from a hard-assed (no pun intended, DADT reactionists) than some asshole I just saw choking a toy chicken and spilling some kind of goo all over himself in a toilet stall. Fun? Yeah, if it was actually funny. It was more to the taste of some asshole superior that was trying to be "one of the guys" and failing miserably. At least now I know that the Navy has no discipline. Thank God they see no real combat.



  21. 21

    How typical of you Mario…When are you going to get off the Homo bullshit already? You Homosexual idiots need to learn to take a god damn joke already. Some times funny is just that asshole FUNNY! Plus, let me let you in on something… you know nothing about the Military Perez, since you're not man enough to join the military just bitch like every other asshole out there. Men in the Navy do these type of things they are guys( don't take everything so serious) get the fuck over it! plus it happened so dang long ago. If it wasn't important back then, well it's not important today. These is why Queers get gay bashed on. Grow a back bone. If you can take a dick, you can take a joke…PERIOD!!!!!!

    Re: Lance PetersRe: Lance Peters – I wouldn't judge one guys actions and blame the entire navy… It's petty of you.
    Their are plenty of good men in the NAVY!!! show some respect.



  23. 23

    This should have been kept quite. I think this is a total over reaction to the public god only knows what they say.. but you know what who cares? Their the ones that go and fight for us so watch what you say about this. I'm so pro-gay but on this I think they should just drop this case.



  24. 24

    You've never seemed to care about mocking people but because they joked about homosexuality you want his head. A lot of people are prejudice about something and do not always conduct our lives in the most appropriate matter, but that doesn't mean we should lose our livelihood because of it. By the way you've conducted this blog I wonder if you would have been able to hold a job that was not this blog. You've said some pretty nasty things about people, what makes you better than anyone else. Stop holding people to such high standards that you haven't been able to live up to.



  25. 25

    totally typical only a pissed off gay would report the man who worked his way to the top as captain. if he has to say lewd words to motivate let him. who fucking cares? freedom of speech ffs.



  26. 26

    Yea…the gay's won. Feel safer? Captain should have said he was gay. Nothing would have happened to him then. PC crap is destroying us.

    You could walk around, take a break from the other people, see a sunrise or a sunset - try being closed up on tin can for eight months straight. I stood sixteen hour watches, boarded ships (and was shot at for the privilege), defended the ship from rowdy mobs in foreign ports with my bare hands. Navy life is tough, pal.
    -
    Funny, all of the infantry men I ever met had great respect for the work the Navy did. It was always some doughy REMF who was beaking off because they peaked at corporal and will be trapped in logistics or some shit for the rest of their career.

    the navy and the government knew about this for 4 years, and yet when he was going up for a promotion, it suddenly comes to life? someone's just pissed that he was getting a promotion. honestly i could care less, but i mean, this guy was just trying to make everyone comfortable, even though the videos where cheesy and a tad bit corny.



  29. 29

    complete over reaction perez… "fair enough" how about if i said i was offended every time you joke about being straight?? would that stop you or make you change your ways??? no you wouldn't.
    WORDS ONLY HAVE POWER TO HARM IF YOU LET THEM…
    straight men and women joking about gays is not a new thing. just like gay people joking about being straight is no new thing. this is an unfortunate situation because weeks before heading into war a high ranking official was let go because some nambie pambie weenie started crying about being sensitive. i don't care if you tuck it, pack it or love it… man the fuck up. this isn't a great world to be in PEREZ. QUIT MAKING IT WORSE BY CRYING ABOUT SOMETHING YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PART OF!!! STAY THE HELL OUT OF MILITARY BUSINESS IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE COJONES TO SIGN YOU LIFE AWAY FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATION. ugh why are gay people so damn sensitive????? man up or butch up already. you don't see me crying every time someone tells me i'm a spick or to swim back across the river. i know who i am and that's all i need to know. why can't the rest of the world quit playing the victim… .

    This is freaking ridiculous. These were just jokes that he was doing. I hear/see gay people doing homo jokes all the time (yes, I'm gay too). I think it's pretty pathetic that people can get in this much trouble just for telling jokes to reduce stress in a job like this, where people are away at sea for months at a time. The Navy is tremendously over-reacting.



  31. 31

    Re: Lance Peters – Navy sees no real combat? Except everyone who goes IA, Navy Corpsman, SEALS, the entire USMC, Combat Cam MCs, Pilots etc. And don't underestimate the stress of living and working on a carrier or sub, sleeping in a rack like a coffin for months at a time. I respect what you've done for your country and for the Army but Please don't be so ignorant about your fellow service men and women.



  32. 32

    if you can't even lead yourself with honour then you haven't earned the right to lead ALL others!
    Douchebag!



  33. 33

    Oh please, if the military doesn't do ANYTHING to punish their rapists and murderers, nothing is going to happen to this douche!
    They literally get away with murder at every turn, but hey, it's for the good ole US of A right?!

    My husband is a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy and, frankly, he was not happy with the video of Captain Honors. As the XO (and a Commander at the time the videos were made) Captain Honors has been tasked to be a responsible leader. Even though the upper officers rarely do any motivating, life on a ship or sub makes them more accessible to the lower ranks, so they really need to be on better behavior. The Navy had probably already handled this in house…but once the info went public, they had no choice but to relieve him of his duty. Trust me, the Navy does not have a sense of humor about this type of behavior getting out to the public. My guess is that they are wanting him to retire, as the Navy has been purging the upper ranks anyways.



  35. 35

    Re: Lance Peters – The Navy sees no real combat eh? My husband has been a Navy Corpsman for 6 years, 1 1/2 of that spent in Iraq. How about the USMC…a department of the Navy? Or how about Seals or intelligence?



  36. 36

    Soooo…we've become so politically correct and hyper sensitive as a culture that now even SAILORS can't talk like sailors? So ridiculous. I am completely against hate crimes and ethically opposed to hateful or mocking speech, but that doesn't mean our government or industry should enforce such serious regulations on what we say or how we joke. When you can't imagine someone getting suspended for making fun of Christians or straight folks or men or white people in the same context, you have a warped situation.
