Look, my entire outlook on homosexuals can be summed up in three words - "Don't Effing care." I have them as friends, been in the field with them, eaten with them, and shared showers and latrines with them - bunks too, on occasion.
But an extra 7 days leave? Sorry, mates, you have gone beyond what is acceptable. I got 4 days for the births of my first 3 kids. With travel time that meant maybe 12 hours seeing them. For one of them it meant sitting around on a ship for 4 days, catching up on my sleep.
One of my adopted daughters (Hey, she is mine. She told me so when she was 10 years old) got married this year. She got a grand total of 2 hours leave to attend her own wedding.
So 7 effing days?
