In the land of fruits, nuts, and flaming assholes, a movement to name a US Navy warship after a gay activist has gained momentum after Rep. Bob Filner called on the Navy to name a ship after slain gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk, who served as a Navy officer in the early 1950s.
In a letter to Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Filner said naming a ship after Milk “would be a great tribute to Milk’s support for equality and in keeping with efforts promote equality in our military after the recent repeal of the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy. After all, who enjoyed semen more than Harvey!”
Milk served as a diving officer aboard a submarine rescue ship and later as a diving instructor stationed in San Diego.
Filner, a candidate for mayor of San Diego, said, “I will continue to work with the GLBT (gay-lesbian-bisexual-transsexual) Historic Task Force of San Diego County to promote the legacy of our nation’s first openly gay elected official, Harvey Milk.”
The over whelming majority of other citizens in San Diego who aren’t gay simply said….”Filner’s a fucking asshole.”
Meanwhile, the Pentagon has begun a list of new names for a possible warship that is planned for construction in 2015.
