Maryland's Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin, on Nov. 30, issued a statement that included the following:
"Sexual orientation should never be used to determine the contributions any man or woman makes to our military."
This invariably suggests that all sexual orientations should be eligible for military service. That would include pedophilia and bestiality.
On the same day, President Obama declared:
"Today I call on the Senate to act as soon as possible so I can sign this repeal (of 'don't ask, don't tell') into law this year and ensure that Americans who are willing to risk their lives for their country are treated fairly and equally."
This presidential-designated category also raises the question about the armed forces accepting such additional alternative sexual orientations as necrophiliacs, coprophiliacs and urophiliacs.
