    I wouldn't distrust a gay guy. But I do know a lot of soldiers that aren't the most accepting and can see this creating problems.

    You've never been deployed then.

    Pull into port, and the first thought is "where's the action"?

    Even the ugly gals were sought after under way.

    And I caught two guys getting it on in a fan room doing a maitenance inspection. Chief was with me, when we opened that door, the look on their faces was... well priceless. We locked the door and got security. And this was in port.

    The Democrats aren't going to have more power then they have right now for a long time.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Question for you "pro-gay military" folk:

    What purpose is there in openly allowing gays to serve. What does this accomplish?

    It does.

    Do you expect me to believe that there are no racists, anti-semites, or other bigots in our integrated military?

    If a soldier can't handle working with gays, he shouldn't be a soldier.
    In an ideal world they probably shouldn't.

    Really? Because the way things are going, I only see them gaining more power unless they **** up drastically.

    Either way, this isn't that huge of an issue. Ending DADT could cause problems, but in the long run it will work itself out.

    Not sure. But doesn't the policy also have something in it about if your sexual orientation is made public, even if through no fault of your own then you're automatically removed from the military even if you've, to that point, served honorably? Seems like such a policy has demonstrably removed more honorable servicemen/servicewomen/officers then it has created.

    As I just said in my previous post: "As long as the military is legally allowed to discriminate against gays, there will be no hope to end the discrimination they face in other facets of society."
