39. Gay man here- no, never, will refuse
No. Never. Period.

I'm not not NOT going to be compelled to serve a fucking country that wants to keep me alone for the rest of my life. I'd rather go to jail.

I. Will. Not. Serve. In. ANY. Capacity. IF someone tries to force me, I'm likely to get violent about it.
