Mattis Doesn’t Care Who People ‘Go to Bed with’ but DOD Still Prosecutes Adultery

Security and Culture Intelligencer
Secretary of Defense nominee James Mattis said on Jan. 12 that he doesn’t care “much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with” in response to a question from Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand about keeping sodomites in the armed forces. And while many in media applauded this progressive answer, they simultaneously failed to realize that the Department of Defense does still indeed care a lot about who two consenting adults go to bed with, which is why it still prosecutes troops for adultery.

The Daily Caller reported on the exchange between Mattis and Gillibrand. And while the article had an overall tone of approval with Mattis being fine with adults having sex with whomever they wish, it makes no mention of military prohibitions against adultery.

The Washington Post has covered the armed forces prosecuting troops with adultery charges over the past few years. And while the adultery charges often are added charges to the main charge against an individual, they show that the armed forces do care about with whom adults are having carnal knowledge.

No word on if anyone will ask Mattis whether he supports repealing military prohibitions against adultery. And no word on if anyone will ask anyone in power why they were so eager to destroy military prohibitions against same-sex deviancy even as they have left prohibitions against regular sexual deviancy intact.
