< rant >

why the hell is it deemed socially acceptable to crack on the military? why is it considered dishonerable to have joined up? why do people say that they would hurt their friends who consider joining up? whatever your views on the use of force are, for the time being, the military is out there protecting our sorry asses, and ought to be treated with a little fucking respect.

at the very least, please try to remember that my grandfather and both of my uncles were in, that both of my older cousins currently are in, that i really can't keep track of other family that's been in, and that jokes about the military are going to raise my hackles.

thank you. =]

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
