Left, right, left, right angst.
My army officer nephew's been accepted into the Parachute Regiment and goes to Afghanistan next April. He came round last Friday, tried to shag my housemate and said that he was walking "like a gay" after hurting his leg in Close Quarter Training. My gay mate was round my house at the time and winced, rather. My take on it was that a certain amount of dehumanisation takes place during training and my nephew's certainly not homophobic. Training can be a brutalising experience and to fit in my nephew's probably vocalising stuff he doesn't necessarily mean. Wodju reckon?
