    But I have been saying all along that our military is professional and can handle what needs to be handled. It's those damn antis who are like "OMG, those soldiers are all going to quit so they don't get gay cooties, and the ones who stay are going to be afraid to bend over, and the others are going to commit assaults on every gay they see".

    People who have been against DADT repeal have had the stupidest arguments.

    Re: Officials: Half of force trained on gay ban repeal

    I had one argument, up until a few years ago: "soldier gets what soldier wants"; however, a few years ago polls became clear that most military people didn't give a crap about gender.

    My unit didn't care about gender. We had a few who displayed all the stereotypes, and no one ever bothered them because they were good soldiers and we could all count on them staying awake on guard and taking it for us if need be. I thought that perhaps that was because we were an elite unit and therefor cohesion was greater. Hell, we so much didn't care that the only time in my life that I've been to a gay bar (ok, actually, there was one other time) was in the military. A guy in my platoon and I were friends with a a group of people (townies), one of whom was openly gay. He told us that his bar was clean, quiet and served cheap beer - and we could go there for a few before the party started back on the block. We knew it was a gay bar, but we didn't care. We went. It was a bit weird that it seems we were a disturbance because military members who were there saw us and got worried. Anyway, it wasn't quiet and clean. It was loud, noisey and had a queen contest. Oh well, was fun anyway for an hour or so and then we went to the party.

    I'm too straight. Thinking about gay stuff pretty much turns my stomach - you guys do what you want but don't ask me to think about it. If it is not too much of an offence to gays, I'm sorry to say, I think it is gross. When I hang out with gay people, I ignore that they do gross things in bed - same as when I hang out with straight people. Anyway, as a paratroop, went to a gay bar near Ft. Bragg.



    As it turns out, the other units don't care either. I'm so relieved and proud.

    Exactly. That's all that is required. And adults can handle these things.

    That statement is crap and you should be ashamed of yourself for saying it. Most on the left that I know have a great deal of respect for the military which is why they were against a useless war. Shame on you for making such an ignorant, biased, hatefull statement!

    As one who served, I have to say that you are quite correct.

    You really don't want to play that game. While I'll agree that they are both pretty rotten, especially Edwards, that type of bad behavior is not exclusive to the democratic party.

    Actually, GWB stopped "talking tough" about bin Laden. Remember, wasn't the quote something like he didn't really think about him anymore?

    In fact, as far as cheating on a wife with cancer, Newt did it long before Edwards. However, I think we can all agree that those who do these things are scumbags regardless of party.
