    Re: White House: Law only answer for gays in military

    All the Western developed nations allow gays in the military, except the U.S. There is no evidence to suggest that homosexuality degrades unit cohesion. That has been a tired argument of the social right since the days when women wanted into the military, and blacks wanted to be included in the regular units.

    This social barrier will be overcome just like all the rest. For most people it's a non-issue, it's just the social right that shouts the loudest about it. The military will inevitably allow gays in and the people uncomfortable about it will just have to deal with it. I also suspect that, in time, they will see that their panic was over nothing.
