Blah, you're right. Maybe people are too polite to ask me if my dad was a closet homosexuality (though they're certainly not too polite to ask if he beat my mom, hah!)

I never saw Jarhead but I don't remember that much closeted gayness in the book. Though I was reading through the lens of strange nostalgia for the "the good war".

If you have not encountered wife beaters in the military, then perhaps you were not looking very hard, Erin. Wife beaters actually appear in all walks of life, I believe. What about closeted gays in the military? (Sam Mendes seemed more interested in showing that, by the way, than wife-beating--if we are talking about "American Beauty" rather than "Jarhead".)
