    That's right. Someone's sex life is their own business. So what is the reason that there needs to be training if not what I stated? Since you think I was wrong in my comment tell me why there would be a problem at all. Enlighten us all with your wisdom since you want to sound so intelligent on this matter. If not bigotry than why the training and the slow process?

So the problem with this change lies on the shoulders of straight people.
    Some people are uncomfortable being naked and living in close quarters with openly gay men and open lesbians. This is a legitimate concern even though I don't believe it warrants masking someone's sexuality. There is nothing bigoted with that opinion.

    I already explained it to you.

    believe it, or not, everyone in the world isn't just like you.

    Maybe, but I don't think it would cross my mind at all. Living in close quarters doesn't mean anything has to happen.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That uncomfortable'ness will call for segregated billets, too.

    Why, that is the truth. The gays aren't going to have to learn to get along with straight people. Please. It is not a bigoted comment at all. It is true 100% true.

    This is true, but not everyone has the same mentality. I also don't think it's wrong for someone to feel being uncomfortable being naked with an openly homosexual person. It's not based on bigotry but on personal privacy and being naked with someone who is openly sexually attracted to your gender.

    It's an extremely bigotted statement. You're stereotyping all straight soldiers.

    If you think that gays aren't going to have make some kind of transition, you live in a fantasy.
