Fastest response ever my friend.,

Interesting how people who "do not approve of the lifestyle" do not understand that gays are everywhere, including the military. Chances are you come across one everyday and you probably shared a barrack with at least one. Just because you do not approve of the lifestyle does not mean it is not already near you. To think otherwise is nothing short of denial and is not at all grounded in reality.
Well, 79% of Americans favor allowing gays to serve openly in the military, including 91% of people aged 18-29...and that was in 2003. If anything I would assume that the public has become more liberal on this issue since then, not less.Originally Posted by Blackdog
Poll: Overwhelming Support for Gays in the Military
Even of the 9% of people aged 18-29 who are presumably against it, most of them probably don't care about it enough to actually affect their decision to enlist or not.
Acceptable morals? WTF? Is it REALLY such a high priority for you to condemn the "morals" of people with alternative lifestyles who aren't hurting you? Do you think that gamblers, drinkers, smokers, people who curse, and people who engage in premarital sex should be banned from the military too? What would THAT do to enlistment?Originally Posted by Blackdog

Then I suggest that you personally continue "don't ask, don't tell." If you don't ask, they probably won't tell you. But if they do, deal with it and grow the **** up.Originally Posted by Blackdog
Because you're being paid to do what your superiors tell you to do? Because you want to defend the country? Because you want to travel the world? For any of the other usual reasons people join the military in the first place?Originally Posted by Blackdog
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.
