"Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”"

The Gay Metropolis, page 47, Charles Kaiser 

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

Yey, Six Selfies Meme (who invents those things?) I got tagged by darkmistandodddreams (whose selfie game is stronger than mine).

I feel like I have to explain something. Those were all made in the course of one year. Yep. I know.

  1. "coming home from larp, look at my tan" selfie
  2. "I’m the tinfoil princess now, also I cut my hair off btw" selfie
  3. "listeners, something weird just happened" selfie
  4. "best ugliest sweater in the universe" selfie
  5. "500 followers horra-oh god is that fire??" selfie
  6. "the things I do for larp" selfie

And so we’ve come full circle. I shaved my hair yesterday so I can get a henna tattoo on my skull for next week’s Conquest….I will grow my hair back after that, though :P

I’m gonna tag haythamkenwaysbooty, gelegenheits-stalker, the-thorster, malicedafirenze, thecraybooknerd and collected-sports-bra. Have fun!
