    Personally, I think the sensitivity training the military was planning to give in order to make this into a smooth transition was kind of gay. DADT was rescinded and as such, the military should just make the changes and move on.

    Those changes will take some time, to avoid a negative result.

    The hyperbolic strawmaning is strong with this one


    Its not out of the question and definitely true that some homosexuals can be sexually attracted to straight individuals, even if it's simply based on looks. To suggest otherwise is simply denying reality.

    As such, it is not a bigoted view to prefer to not be in close living Quarters with someone who may find you sexually appealing, that such would make you uncomfortable. Despite much machismo on the part of some males, I don't doubt a fair bit of the male population would feel the same way closely bunking up with women who they didn't find particularly attractive.

    It's nothing about thinking your naked looks will cause a gay feeding frenzy, simply the reasonable notion that some homosexuals may find heterosexuals sexually attractive.

That is why the US spends more money on military than anyone in the world. The US could cut it's military budget in half and still be outspending China who spends the second most by more than double. Maybe it would help to understand what makes up the top end of military before saying that I am picking on the lowly troop that gets sent without reason to the field to be shot at. I feel so sorry for that troop that I think he should be home with her or her family rather than in some other nation doing god knows what.

    So why would someone have to be taught to deal with people that are different from them?

    Yu seem to have very little faith in the maturity, discipline, and honor of our military men and women if you think that to be true

    What negative? This is what I have been saying what negative? The negative comes from what element?
