I'd really like to explore this line of argument in more detail. What is your understanding of the civilian and military policies toward gays under the Nazis? And in what sense do you believe those policies helped or hindered their war effort?The Wermacht during WW2 allowed gays to serve in the ranks, as did the Shutzstauffel. How did it turn out for them? How many German soldiers died during WW2? There's ya numbers for ya.
