Sailor Defends Homophobic Videos!

Wow.

There is at least one person coming to the defense of Capt. Owen Honors, who screened several homophobic and offensive videos while he was second in command on the USS Enterprise.

The sailor sent a letter to the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, an organization for gay and lesbian military personnel, asking for them to retract the statements they made. The ones that caused him to be removed from duty!

The sailor wrote:

"As a gay man that served onboard the USS Enterprise during both the '06 and '07 deployments I was never once offended by Capt. Honors' choice of humor. I have begun to make contact with my fellow gay service members who were also on those deployments. We will band together to show our support for Capt. Honors."

And since when does he speak for EVERYONE?! Just because he wasn't offended doesn't mean someone else wasn't!

    Oh my gosh, this guy was expressing his point of view. He did not say that he represnted everyone. Don't take his words and twist them just because you do not agree.



  2. 2

    Fuck you perez. I hope you read this,, Fuck. You.



  3. 3

    You think you speak for all gays, Perez so how is this guy any different from you? Believe it or not, ugly, but you're not the leader of the gay community.



  4. 4

    oh perez shut your trap!!!

    Perez, you are such an idiot. Seriously. I don't even know what to say.. but, YOU think YOUR opinions are the opinions of all.. men, gays, cubans.. seriously. You are such a hypocrite. No matter the subject, you are always such a hypocrite!



  6. 6

    DID YOU READ WHAT HE WROTE MARIO???? Now you are attacking gays! He served under this man and he is asking OTHER GAYS WHO SERVED UNDER HIM to join him to get this officer back into duty. Now, if these other gay service men and women were OFFENDED, I am sure they will not join him in the fight. YOU are accusing him of speaking for all gays (WHICH HE IS NOT DOING) when in fact, YOU DO IT ALL THE TIME, YOU ARE THE HYPOCRITE. You did not serve under this officer, let the people speak who were under him



  7. 7

    Where does it say he speaks for EVERYONE. I really love your site but sometimes it seems like you make problems where there aren't any.



  8. 8

    AND JUST BECUZ HE WASNT OFFENDED DOESNT MEAN OTHERS WERE EITHER!! FAT BOY YOU MAKE THE WORSE DEBATER EVER… DONT EVER BE A FUCKING LAWYER. WE KNOW WITH UR IQ AND NEGATIVE LSAT SCORES THAT WONT EVER HAPPEN… NEXT.



  9. 9

    There are a lot of self-hating gays out there.



  10. 10

    seriously though, people who serve in the army aren't exactly the 'brightest' crayons in the box… You can't exactly expect them to understand the underlying consequence of tolerating elementary school bigotry. *shrug*

    Pick your battles



  11. 11

    Also, I would like the world to see what YOU SAY IN PRIVATE. Might be very interesting. Things said in private SHOULD NEVER BE PUT ON YOU TUBE, out for the public, etc. LIKE MEL G. phone calls. Another case where alot are like OH, he is a racist pig. Everyone has some racism in them, they just do not have it BROADCAST ACROSS THE WORLD! (I am not excusing him though). People let off steam, incorrectly at times, but that does not mean that they are evil people. I question the person that records all this, Miley, Mel, the officer. They are NOT WHISTLE BLOWERS, BUT GREEDY PEOPLE WITH AGENDAS.



  12. 12

    A gay milatary server who these videos were for isn't offended so why are you?



  13. 13

    Re: latinoguy86 – I wonder what would have happened if he had said n*gger instead. Like you said "people have the RITE to their own opinion".



  14. 14

    Why the fuck are people so sensitive?? Thats the problem, everyone is scared to hurt other people's feelings.Perez, you aren't one to talk anyway because you built an internet empire BASED on hurting people. The next time you serve with the military and someone makes a slur based joke, then you can be offended. This guys wasn't, and thats o.k.



  15. 15

    Military brain washing is as bad as religious brain washing.

  16. EMJ3 says – reply to this


    16

    He has an opinion and he's allowed to share it. He's expressing the fact these video's were NOT made in malice. Asshat…you know nothing about the situation. You and the rest of the media have only caused grief for a man who doesn't deserve it and for the sailors [and their families, my friend included] that respected him and needed his leadership for this deployment.



  17. 17

    We have become such a nation of Pansys! You cannot say ANYTHING without someone getting offended by it. Seriously. Grow some balls and get over it….And YOU don't speak for EVERYONE EITHER PEREZ!



  18. 18

    Sorry, Fatback, but you FAIL AGAIN on this one. Freedom of speech. You yourself just made a heinous video about your trip to the middle east where you talked about so-called oppression of certain groups. WHY, just because someone does not have the same view as you get plucked out and called offensive? People are entitled to their own opinion so stop being such a hypocrite.



  19. 19

    WOW PEREZ YOURE ONE TO TALK!!! you always seem to think your opinion speaks for everyone in the gay community………………….. still love you tho



  20. 20

    my god you are so fucking annoying Perez!!!! he never said he was speaking for everyone!!! UNLIKE YOU who always talk as if you were king of the gays! honestly you can´t be so narrow minded and oversensitive all the time! Plus i think he knows better than you if people were offended by the capt or not !!!



  21. 21

    He has more rights to speak up than you do. You are such a hypocrite. You think your opinions mean so much and that everyone has to be a part of them. You didn't hear the capts remarks, they weren't directed at you. Take a chill pill and let others have their say as well.



  22. 22

    Re: Viva LaChapelle – That is a VERY ignorant and offensive remark. 1. The military officers who serve our country are the best and brightest. You either have to attend one of the highly selectively military academies, one of the four-year universities with a ROTC program, or attend Officer Candidate School after you graduate from a four-year university (and if they don't think that your college was good enough, they have you take more calculous and calculous-based physics classes before they'll take you). Just look at the schools with Naval ROTC programs - UPENN, Tulane, Purdue, Villanova, Northwestern, Auburn, Notre Dame, Boston U, Duke, UNC - Chapel Hill, Carnegie Melon, Berkley, UCLA, UCSD, UVA, GW etc…not exactly community college…on top of very intelligent, they have be able to lead others from a very young age, make life and death decisions for others, be and be physically fit. I have met many enlisted service members with BA/BS and masters. 2. For a lot of the enlisted, they are very bright individuals (esp the Navy and Air Force), who didn't grow up in a great neighbor and couldn't afford to attend college first and joining the armed forces was their best option. Most of them serve their time and use the GI Bill to get their degree after they get out.



  23. 23

    Re: Viva LaChapelle

    Stupid f*ck, did you read the article? Was he in the Army? Holy shit, learn to read before you spout off about who is and who isn't "bright".

    This is coming from one of those not so intelligent service members too. Burn.

    its about time people in this society stopped being so super sensitive all the time. This man was in charge of hundreds of young people in combat, should he have said those things, maybe maybe not, but perez u dont know him or his personality or have ever met him, but ur judging him and someone who knows him very very well is supporting him.

    kinda makes me stand by the person who knows him and not someone who doesnt.

    stop being so sensitive and dramatic



  25. 25

    Bullshit!
    The sailor is so used to these kind of comments that he isn't even aware anymore that they are offensive!
    Owen Honors is NOT a leader!



  26. 26

    If I said you offended me, would you shut your website down?



  27. 27

    With that kind of logic……nobody would have a fucking job. People get offended on a daily basis from their bosses, coworkers etc. You offend people on a daily basis…yet, you continue to write trash. I normally LOVE this site and everything on it, but this is one topic I do not agree with you on.



  28. 28

    No matter what you say there is always going to be someone who is offended. Someone, somewhere is not going to like something no matter how hard you try. Obviously he wasn't speaking for EVERYONE… that's a REAL stupid comment. If the gay men that worked with him weren't offended, just let it go.



  29. 29

    I am a former Navy sailor and I have been through the hell of deployments. They suck, and humor is a great way to lift morale. If you have never been in that situation Perez, you really have no room to comment on the actions of the Commanding Officer. I think its absurd that you are angry at a gay military member for not agreeing with your views. He doesn't speak for everyone else and neither do you! Maybe you can learn something from this individual, not getting so offend at the drop of a feather. I've been a fan of your website for many years, but I am getting really annoyed at you on this whole matter.



  30. 30

    Being offended by something is a choice. If you make the choice to be offended, you give the subject matter power over you, by choice. If you express your aversion to the offensive material without taking offense you take away it's power and reveal it's true ignorance. Live and let live asshole :)



  31. 31

    I'm not saying what he said was right, but do you think before you write, Perez? Do you ever really listen to yourself? Since when do YOU speak for everyone? Just because YOU'RE offended doesn't mean everyone was.



  32. 32

    You don't speak for everyone either perez. I am so sick of your ultra politically correct pro gay crap. If they man says he wasn't offended then he wasn't, stop trying to create drama. I am seriously going to have to switch to another, more neutral site for my cleb gossip.



  33. 33

    its only his personal experience, he never said he spoke for everyone



  34. 34

    "And since when does he speak for EVERYONE?!"

    Little of pot calling kettle black Mr. P, official homosexual spokesperson?



  35. 35

    Read the story genius. They were in the NAVY, not the Army.



  36. 36

    The sailor is a gay man with a purpose in life serving our country. Perez is a gay queen who acts like an idiot at all times. I think i'll take the sailors word.



  37. 37

    To be honest, Perez, it's not even that big of a deal. Just political correctness gone mad. The man was drunk, and yes he cracked gay jokes, but I doubt anyone was actually offended. It's just like, I have a black friend and people are constantly cracking black jokes around him but he just laughs them off and isn't offended. I am English, and get the piss taken out of me for all of the stereotypes, but I see it in good humour. Besides, the sailor never said he was speaking for everyone.



  38. 38

    Oh Phuck off Perez. What are you trying to do, reenact don't ask, don't tell? Suck cock all you want, but you have to co-exist with the breeders, like it or not. Let's not gay up the military like we did with the YMCA.



  39. 39

    perez…bitch sit down….



  40. 40

    You seem to think YOU can speak for anyone.

    The type of humor and speech seen in the video is SO typical of those in the armed forces-For members who are gay and straight. I'm sorry if you personally take offense to that, but I have yet to meet anyone else (with a valid sense of humor) that finds it terribly shocking or offensive. Obviously, recording a video WITH that content was incredibly dumb. Civilians who have never served love to either shit all over or romanticize the fuck out of what happens on deployments. No topic should be so sensitive you can't LAUGH about it. Pull the Douglass Furr out of your ASS.



  41. 41

    Re: Viva LaChapelle – You are an ignorant fuck face of THE highest caliber. Congratulations. My husband is active duty. He can take an engine apart and put it back together, on his own, without any point of reference. Are you capable of that??? Probably not, because you're a useless cum dumpster contributing nothing but uneducated (probably regurgitated) opinions and neglecting to improve the world around you. My husband has helped to prevent migrants from smuggling thousands of lbs of stolen weaponry and cocaine into the US. He's no destructive dumbass.

    Suck it, bitch.



  42. 42

    Actually, a LOT of service members, private citizen, and officials have defended Captain Honors. For a reason! I disagree with you this time Perez.



  43. 43

    Perez he is a gay man that served our country, what have you done except out people and then make fun of them and judge. He never stated he was the gay community, you idiot. You are for gay rights as long as they agree with your sensibilities. You are hurtful to the gay community!



  44. 44

    Re: Viva LaChapelle – Wow, it's amazing how you combat bigotry with discrimination. People in the Army are not the smartest crayon in the box? 1. It's NAVY. 2. What the hell does him being in the Navy and, stating that to HIM and the gays on that ship are not offended, have to do with service members being "not the brightest crayons in the box"?

    What make people like yourself so idiotic, is that you believe that if you're offended others should be as well, and if they're not offended, then they are stupid. That is just an ignorant remark as the ones you believe are being stated. That is not the case, nor should it be. We are all different and think differently. What separates ALL humans are their minds and most people have a tolerance. Something will always be offensive to any one group and if you want to fight or protest because you are offended, that is your right. The right the "not so bright Soldiers" defend when they take the oath. Not ALL Soldiers are the same. Stop generalizing the whole Army, because it would be unfair to say "all gays are complaining ass bitches. There is no truth to that if I am only referring to one, that in itself is offensive and unfair.



  45. 45

    Re: EMJ3 – Thankyou. I know my partner thought he was a great captain. This deployment will be hard on us friends and family, and this is the last thing we need.



  46. 46

    You post terribly offensive and homophobic comments everyday for millions–including children–to see. These comments you let be published right here are far more offensive than most anything on the internet today! Either you don't want negative gay comments or you do, not sure? If these comments keep being posted you are the TOTAL hypocrite! I would never run a site with a public forum and let strangers disparage a cause I really cared about, let alone make it accessible to all ages to read!



  47. 47

    It seems that most people that come to this site don't agree with the majority of what you say. They come in defense of everything you say about others.



  48. 48

    and just because some people were offended doesn't mean everyone was — it can go both ways. just because he doesn't agree with YOU, doesn't mean he can't have and express his own opinion. who said that you speak for everyone?



  49. 49

    Right, he doesn't speak for everyone. Kind of like you bashing a sailor without even being one. This isn't hate, it's humor. Learn the difference.



  50. 50

    SEXUAL ORIENTATION HAS NO BUSINESS IN THE WORK PLACE… this seems to see something you don't understand perez. you are not an honorable advocate for gay rights. just because your are gay doesn't make you RIGHT! get it through your thick skull. just because you get all cry baby because your a homo doesn't mean that we want to hear it! got it!!!



  51. 51

    I think everyone needs to calm down on this. I was talking to my brother about this. He has been in the army for 25 years, and has done two tours of Afganastan. He is one of the fairest, least racist or homophobic people I know. He told me that what happens in the field is NOT what happens in "real life" and you do whatever you can to boost your guys moral. Would Honors have made this video in "real life"? I doubt it. As my brother said, you do what you have to do to keep up the moral of guys who are away from their families for months or years at a time.



  52. 52

    You're the worst kind of person, Perez. You're the kind of person that always wants to be seen as a victim - "Oh no! I got punched in the face!" (never mind that YOU instigated it), "I'm GAY and EVERYONE hates gays! You don't understand because you're not gay like me!". How about instead of playing the offended victim in a situation that has NOTHING to do with you, you sit down and shut the fuck up?
    He never once claimed that he spoke for everyone. That is something you came up with to try and create a drama where there is none. You stir so much shit, and then you wonder why so many people hate you.



  53. 53

    And who on Earth are YOU to speak for every gay person?! You so badly want to voice your opinions like yours are the only ones that matter. Equal rights mean equality everywhere… not just when it suits you. STFU



  54. 54

    read your own words, perez. Just because YOU were offended doesn't mean EVERYONE else was either.



  55. 55

    I served in the Navy for 4 years. I was not offended, rather thought the vids were cute as well as the captain. Bet you he is a "player"

  56. Dito says – reply to this


    56

    Perez shut the hell up. You are such an embarrassment to gays everywhere… FUCK YOU!



  57. 57

    we agree. perez was not on the ship, perez does not speak for all gays. maybe perez ought to enlist and see the other side.



  58. 58

    the same goes with you Perez, who says you represent EVERYONE? just because you're offended doesn't mean others should be, too.



  59. 59

    Who are you to talk, mario? You act like you are the gay community's spokesperson with half the things you say on here. I'm gay and almost everything you say and do is exactly why alot of people dislike us. Cause youre fake, two-faced, and you act like a stupid bitch. Get the dick out of your ass and stick it in your mouth for a little while so actual sense can be made of this world.

    Dear Perez, You need to just chill out Killer! I wish my XO was that cool. I work for a bunch of stuck up assholes. My captain is pretty lame.



  63. 63

    Seriously, I don't know if I've told you enough times, or if you've seen it, or if you're planning on following my advice, but kill yourself. Please. You are such a pathetic piece of shit I'd rather play foosball with some cave taliban leaders than be around you. DIE



  64. 64

    Re: gabegetsyouhigh – THANKS TO EVERYONE WITH THE SENSE TO REALIZE THAT THIS HAS BEEN BLOWN WAY OUT OF PERSPECTIVE!! Navy peeps have a different sense of humor (both the members AND their spouses). Seriously. Just ask anyone who has ever served in the USN…especially the submarine guys (they are really special, lol). BTW, my husband and I are BOTH in the Navy.
    We all (race, creed, color…etc) in the Navy give each other crap EVERY DAY. Like others here have said, it's all in fun, not everyone gets offended, and it DOES boost morale onboard. If you can't laugh with the people you're going to war with, then that's a sad command to work in.
    BTW…about the crayon crack…I have an MBA and quit my secure private sector job b/c I CHOSE to serve. Many of our friends are college educated and yes, highly skilled whether it's breaking down a diesel turbine engine, repairing sonar systems, running logistics, keeping our fighters in the air, or killing people (go SEAL TEAMS!). A degree doesn't necessarily make someone a brighter "crayon".
    I'm female/asian…so don't think I don't catch my fair share and you better believe I give it back. Hell, my husband & I crack on each other every chance we get…it's what Sailor's do…get over it [Perez] and quit being so sensitive.
