Robert Byrd Said Gays in the Military Would Lead to Sex Slaves

From Ted Kennedy’s new memoirs:

The last senator to speak was Robert Byrd, and he came up with a new one on all of us… He informed us, with many ornate flourishes, that there had been a terrible problem in ancient Rome with young military boys turned into sex slaves. I don’t remember the exact details, but I think the story involved Tiberius Julius Caesar being captured and abused and used as a sex slave.
