I was once dragged by a friend to a party for “straight-acting gay guys.” It turned out to be an “O-Party” apparently organized by a number of closetted gay police officers. (O as in orgy.) Good thing the organizers were late, and I had time to sneak out. Here’s a development regarding gay police officers.
From The Philippine Star 03/23/2007:
The Philippine National Police (PNP) has issued a warning to gay officers not to sway their hips or display suggestive behavior while on duty or they risk losing their jobs.
“If they sway their hips while marching, or if they engage in lustful conduct, I think that will be ground for separation” from the service, Pagdilao said.
Despite this, the PNP maintains that homosexuals are welcome to join the police force, provided that they refrain from immoral and indecent behavior.
“The PNP does not look at the sexual preference of individual police officers but they should be wary and strict in the conduct and behavior of a police officer,” said Pagdilao. “If a police officer acts immorally or is indecent it could be a ground for sanction or dismissal from the police service.”
He also said cross-dressers, those who are wearing clothing commonly associated with the opposite gender within a particular society, are definitely not allowed in the police force.
Since the PNP was established as an institution in the late 1980s, Pagdilao pointed out that he does not know of anyone who admitted to homosexuality.
“I donâ€™t know of anyone who is actually gay. Perhaps they remain in the closet. Being openly gay is probably still not accepted in the culture of the police,” he said.
What’s your take on gay police officers?
