Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Play in Porn Flicks

The story so far: last year several (7) members of the 82nd Airborne based in Ft. Bragg were fired for appeariing in a gay porn site in the internet (activeduty.com). It seems a constant for servicemembers worldwide; not long ago a Spanish Navy servicewoman got discharged on grounds of a homemade porn video unadvertedly made public on the Internet too. I haven't heard of much more cases among Armed Forces here or there, but Fort Bragg seems a constant source of meat. These days, another guy got booted from the Army for exactly the same reasons.

But (as Queerty points out) that's not the Matt Sanchez case. I never pay much attention to ultraconservatives except when they pose a risk to my physical integrity, and that's not usually occurring, but let's take a brief look at Mr. Sanchez. Breaking all rules myself I'll indulge in this post from GayLeftBorg about the guy's blogging from his Tour of Duty in the Eastern Theatre, of course. I'm a leftist, and you better be warned that everything speaking against ultraconservatives is something I Want To Believe (call me Fox Mulder, not Fox News).

It's still unclear to me whether Mr. Sanchez did play in any gay porn flick (it seems he did; well maybe he's an ex-gay), but the Military guidelines for porn cameos, gay or not, are similar, so if the guy played porn he should be kicked out, no? Well, no. He did it to Feel Superior. Great. And if it was gay porn why would he do such? Of course, read my mind: because he thinks "Fuck the Faggots!"

Anyway, given that I know some people there in Fort Bragg, here's some free advice for them (Scott, prick up your ears!!):

  • Whenever you want to exhibit your own assets, don't choose Activeduty.com: there must be someone activewatching it for pics of serviceguys.
  • If you're caught red handed in pornography actions, praise the UltraChristians, hold the Bible and declare that you did it to show the superiority of ultraconservatives over those communist liberals
  • Whenever you be deployed to either Iraq or Afghanistan, make sure you can keep blogging, bashing gays and flaming those exposing your pictures or films. That's probably the best way to keep alive.

[With all due respect to the rest of servicemembers worldwide]

Matt Sanchez did appear in gay porn under the names Rod Majors and Pierre Labranche. This fact is not in dispute. He had to admit because you can find pictures and videos of him all over the internet.

One point that is disputed, however, is that he also worked as a prostitute for gay male clients and advertised in gay magazines. Initially, he admitted this too in an article he wrote for Salon.com titled "Porn Free." He also answered "yes" several times in a radio interview when asked if he was a prostitute.

It's possible that he was still hooking even after he enlisted. Sanchez retracted his prostitution admissions after the military launched its investigation into his past.

Thank you very much for the comment, which sheds much more light on the guy's past. Myself I didn't bother to check Sanchez's background, and I should have done carefully before posting anything on the issue.
