How common were homosexuality relationshiPs between gis in www?
As in "the thin red line
Stigma was huge. It was a immense taboo and generally if you were thought to be a queer, you became more of an issue then you were worth. "Relationships" were immensely risky and I seriously would seriously doubt any claims of relationships forming between GIs.
Homosexual acts were shockingly common. Some units had up to 71% of soldiers engaging in anal sex. Up to 50% of our grandpas blew a dude.
It was more common for soldiers to have sex with each other than to see the enemy.
War is hell.
"relationships" are easier in the Legion. I'm sorry.
look, at least we have women serving!
Imagine two rugged GI's decked out in full combat gear vigorously throating each others' cocks in a 69.
Then afterwards, washing down semen with a swig of iodine tab water from their aluminum canteens.

The military is extremely homoerotic. I know a few marines. Gayest dudes I've ever met. Fun guys though, and they aren't the kind of gay that prances around and wears heals or shouts about marriage (unless they are ranting about the White House being lit up like a fag flag), but still... Gayest guys ever. Seeing as we all know about the Greeks taking it up the pooper 1000s of years ago, I think it's pretty safe to say it's always been that way.
Now I'm no woman, and I'm no military man, but it seems to me that the military environment allows men the same sexual freedoms as the regular world allows women. Ability to experiment in rare cases, and most of the time just flirt with or teaser the same sex without so much retaliation.
So not that they're all prancing, dick-sucking fairies, but they certainly lack the boundaries of masculinity that are imposed upon the modern man.
They probably slapped each other's asses all the time and saw each other naked. Did they jerk each other off? Probably more often then the guys back home, but that doesn't mean that every single night in the field was like Brokeback Mountain.
Or maybe they really were just a bunch of fudge-packing queers. I don't fucking know.
I'd say the service is no gayer than being on the football team. When its freezing balls in the field its definitely not gay to scoot your sleeping bags together and essentially spoon.
Everyone comfortable with their sexuality and you're pretty damn bro tier with all the shit you go through.
I think I remember my grandpa saying that he had a CO in the army air corps shoot a gay guy for being really fucking gay once. He had alzhimers so maybe he got confused and meant to say the CO shot a black guy for being really fucking black, but I don't doubt either case.
Where is your god now?

What you know, like a lot of leftist deconstructionist horseshit, is wrong.
The relationship between an erastes and an eromenos was more like a patronship. It involved an older guy and a 'beardless youth', meaning someone of consenting age. There were no dating opportunities since the wimminz were segregated, so if you have somebody whose thighs you can grease up and stick your dick between and mimic conventional sex with, that's a fringe bennie. Anal sex was looked upon as unsanitary and disgusting, and so were same sex relationships between guys of the same age.
The horseplay and mock-sexual displays that occurs in all-male groups is obviously something you're too much of a sheltered little metrosexual creature to understand. You might as well posit that half the NFL are queer because they're patting each other on the ass or throwing arms around each others' shoulders.
The percentage of cocksuckers in WW2 -- with a healthy culture where masculinity was prized and everybody went to church on Sunday, if only as a social ritual -- was probably a lot lower than in the general population today.
I've heard several stories but I have not witnessed anything. There was a kid in basic training named Simmons that definitely fit the profile. A bunch of MPs got sent home for fucking locals my second tour.
"And if there were only some way of contriving that a state or an army should be made up of lovers and their beloved, they would be the very best governors of their own city, abstaining from all dishonour, and emulating one another in honour; and when fighting at each other's side, although a mere handful, they would overcome the world. For what lover would not choose rather to be seen by all mankind than by his beloved, either when abandoning his post or throwing away his arms? He would be ready to die a thousand deaths rather than endure this. Or who would desert his beloved or fail him in the hour of danger?"
—Plato, Symposium. 4th century BCE
Nah, dude. Greek buttsex is real. You should read sources from that time period. Buttsex everywhere.
don't try arguing with this tripfag. This guy has a legit mental instability about this kinda stuff. I'm 90% sure he was touched as a kid, considering how passionate about the subject he gets.
