Another Moster at heart

That wasn't how he came across to me.
Edit: On second thought, that was an understatement.

I've never came across der veker yet, anyone else did?

I think I ran into its Amazon listings a while back due to them showing up on the first page of Google results for "kaveshtiebel."

I took home a poster for that event off the new BMG building that night.
What's his blog called? (I don't think I'd ever heard of him.)

"The act prohibited any homosexual or bisexual person from disclosing their sexual orientation or from speaking about
any homosexual relationships, including marriages or other familial attributes, while serving in the United States armed forces.
The act specified that service members who disclose that they are homosexual or engage in homosexual conduct should
be separated (discharged)..." (Emphasis added)

Or in other words, you're not really allowed to be here, but if we can claim we don't know, we won't kick you out.

A mum broke down in tears on her son's wedding day after finding out the woman
he was marrying was actually her long-lost daughter. The woman reportedly spotted
a birthmark on the bride's hand which mimicked that of her lost daughter's and that's
what led her to the discovery.
(Photo caption: The tear-jerking reunion happened in Suzhou, Jiangsu province in China on March 31.)
After spotting the distinct mark, the woman asked the bride's parents if they
had adopted the daughter more than 20 years ago, Times Now News reports.
It's been reported that that family were shocked by the question as the adoption had long
been a secret, but they eventually admitted they'd found her as a baby by the roadside.
The bride was completely unaware of her true birth story and later described the moment
as "happier than the wedding day itself." Naturally, she became concerned that she was
about to marry her older brother - until things took another strange turn. It was reportedly
revealed that he had also been adopted - so they weren't biological siblings after all.
It appears as if the woman adopted a son after failing to find her missing daughter,
Oriental Daily reported - despite having looked for her for years without success.
The bride was reportedly "relieved" and they went ahead with the wedding ceremony after all.

"Mental illness" does not have one-size-fits-all implications for duty fitness.

Yes, he does, and it's as bizarre as it sounds. (I was surprised enough
just to find out that Ta-Nehisi Coates was writing Marvel comics.)

Excluding people on the basis of mental illness should be according to how it affects their ability to execute their tasks.
Or perhaps itís not a great idea to give assault rifles and authority to the mentally ill. If they wanna scrub toilets in the military thatís fine with me.

Try reading it again, I guess?

They didn't have to hide that they were in the military. They needed to hide certain behaviors.

The law was not that such-and-such behavior is forbidden, but that such individuals are forbidden to serve.

If a person is mentally ill (again, I'm referring to gender dysphoria not anything else) then it is
definitely a 'special privilege' to be treated equally. [...] No one with that level of mental illness [...]

Excluding people on the basis of mental illness should be according to how it affects their ability to execute their tasks.

One of those hasn't been posted in for 8 months ("active").
The other didn't exist at the time of that post.

The current free EGS game is Tales of the Neon Sea.
Might not be for children. (Also, supposedly very puzzly.)
