The majority of active Swiss soldiers I have met seemed to be under the influence of mood altering illegal medicaments.
a whole lot of that was happening though.

Re: Military Service for a Gay Young Man.

Wow you guys gave Timo a lot to read and think about. He is not a memeber here, but I think he will join. He did ask me to say that he wanted to be part of his new country and that why he like to do the military service and be a normal Swiss man.


As far as being LDS, I don't know the families religion but I would guess that are LDS and maybe Timo is planning on going on a mission for the church that would relate to his questions about the underwear.


Now it seems we have sports underwear that is longer or more compression like so maybe the LDS clothing wont be a issue in the military as it would have been in the past.


I think the idea that Timo go to the army, dose the job asked of him, and keep his sexuality to him self or a few close friend may be the best thing. I think Timo want to be open, but seems to be going back and forth on the topic and why should he be open in a military environment but maybe to some close friends.


As we talked more, (this is what I do for students is help them with problems and issues) he seems more relaxed about it all, but at the same time maybe wants to be more open like some LGBT students here. Funny how it is almost a real cool thing now to be "Gay and open", as some events for our students seem more like bars now with everyone hitting on each other.


One older guy at the Uni told me "Handyies" and Sex talk should be keep in your pocket at all time while at school and work, lol but then you see all kinds of pickup lines being used, I guess humans have this desire to be wanted, loved and need to maybe hook up along the way??


Thanks for the help and let hope Timo make good choices along the way. Martin

IS he indeed Swiss?

Meaning: does he own one of these?

Are you sure Timo is... just a friend? You seem to discuss him, his sexuality and even his underwear with a level of familiarity and candidness slightly beyond the professional.

Re: Military Service for a Gay Young Man.

I was also wondering how one keeps sex talk in the pocket? Is he referring to men ( 99% ) who play with themselves in their pockets?

As trolls go, Martin's not bad. He's kept this going pretty well. But it's the end of the road for him now. I know, Friday's days away -- sorry.
