They're gonna use a condom upon joining the military.It's men who have had unprotected anal sex with men that dominate the AIDs stats.
I've repeatedly have made this about behavior and not orientation, and it's an issue of behavior, not just unsafe sexual behavior. It's obvious that homosexual men aren't wearing a condom, they dominate AIDS stats to the point where their behavior is twice as risky as IV drug use. So risky that when the CDC or these "reputable health organizations" above regard these same behaviors by heteros "risky"...whether they use condoms or not.You are distorting the point by trying make it an issue of sexual orientation, when it is an issue of unsafe sexual behavior.
So...you're alos gonna throw out there that a positive HIV status shouldn't prevent you from combat roles in the military?Furthermore, the law prohibits discrimination of people based on their HIV status.
I'm arguing the same exact issue and you're darn right the military goes against federal law...for all types of behaviors and status. That's why there is a UCMJ. That's why military law is quite different for obvious reasons.Are you suggesting the military go against federal law? Because you are really arguing two separate issues.
We were just discussing don't ask don't tell. Think that would fly in the public domain? The military goes against federal law now......pay attention!
I'm sure this found in EVERY federal law:
Bet you can desert IBM or Bank Of America or your City job anytime war or peace...and the major punishment is you being fired...not shot at dawn. Does this go against federal law......CT?c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.”
I'm sure this mirrors federal law as well.
