The Adventures of Capt. GayMan

The Bush administration has released the first- ever Army training manual on homosexual policy -- as a comic book

"Death threats, use of the word "faggot,' and use of power, blackmail, and violence to put gay troops in their place are the kinds of harassment that need to be addressed and stamped out. This comic book is not going to do any of that," Belkin says. "Violence against gay and lesbian service members will continue as long as there is a policy against them. Even if the policy was printed on gold leaf, embossed stationery and hand-delivered to every troop by the secretary of defense, it wouldn't matter. The most abusive policies can be implemented in relatively humane ways. But the bottom line is that this policy is still about firing people for the simple reason of being gay."
