DADT is Officially Over

Yes, some of us (including me) didn't really care about the repeal of DADT, but it still doesn't mean you can't laugh at some of this stuff.  And it didn't take but thirty seconds for the Navy to have the first news story about a gay officer jumping out of the closet and getting married (nice going, Navy, way to live up to the stereotype):

Just as the formal repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy took effect, Navy Lt. Gary Ross and his partner were married before a small group of family and friends.

The two men, who'd been together 11 years, decided to marry in Vermont in part because the state is in the Eastern time zone.

That way, they were able to recite their vows at the stroke of midnight – at the first possible moment after the ban ended...

That's just so gay

Oops.  You can't say that anymore.  There's so many terms that are going to be banned in order to be sensitive to someone's feelings.  A group of friends on Active Duty (like Chuck and CJ) and their spouses have come up with a list of terms that are no longer useable in the military.  Some of the more PG-13 terms are below:

Embrace the suck
Suck it up
Poopdeck
Scuttlebutt
Rear Area
Buttpack
Buddy F#@%er
Go Navy, Beat Army
