    To be fair I don't think they are talking about Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Poland or Romania. They mean the Western European nations.

    Do you know what harrassment in the workplace means?

    But you brought it up, NP. Being gay is not a choice, any more than liking chocolate is a choice. A sexual orientation can not be changed, though one's behaviors can...as can the suppression of one's desired behaviors, can.

    BTW, good to see you back, NP. Hadn't seen you around much and was getting a little worried about you, my friend.

    Interesting, could you link to a study that proves this or is this just your uneducated and homophobic opinion?

    Working for a private company is vastly different than being in the military... one would think you'd know that.

    Would you use a study of workers at Wal-Mart, or at McDonalds, or Chase Bank, for instance, as a reliable measure or predictor of the performance of our U.S. armed forces?

    Does the fact that Wal-Mart has recently been the target of numerous sexual harassment and sexual discrimination lawsuits have any bearing on the service of women in the U.S. military?
