Which is why they have don't ask, don't tell. The place is not a social experiment. It is a machine of disciplined destruction of our enemies through brutal force or espionage.Here is the way I see it -
1) If someone wants to defend the United States against its enemies, I don't care if he or she is gay, or straight, or whatever. Besides, his or her sexual orientation is none of my damn business,
You go into a sub, or battlefield quarters that are tighter than sardines in a can... not good when tensions are high.unless he or she is disrupting other troops by hitting on them. There are rules for that already in the military for straights. They will apply to gays too.
I'd put them in secretarial positions with women.2) If gays serve in the military, I will also thank them for their service, because I love my country, and I know they do too.
It is going to create tensions, it is going to foster political correctness to a sickening degree as it has with women in the military, and it will get more GI's killed. No long term benefits there unless you are a lib and think the place should be a social experiment.To those who don't like the idea of gays serving in the military, you might as well prepare to accept it. It is going to happen sooner or later, and it is going to be a benefit to our military, rather than a liability.
Don't ask don't tell works... it weeds out the gays that create tension. Don't break what is working. It's not worth one American life.

I guess they'll have to install shower curtains now.

If they're already serving secretly, then they're already looking at your package openly and you'll think nothing of it. Likewise, they'll also be concealing the fact that they have HIV for as long as possible, thereby exposing the rest of the unit.
Isn't secrecy wonderful?
btw, who's that guy watching you take a shower ..LOL
And what about the time BEFORE their gayness is found out? There was no TENSION then. Why all of a sudden would there be TENSION only AFTER they are outted?Don't ask don't tell works... it weeds out the gays that create tension. Don't break what is working. It's not worth one American life.
Sorry. Your argument is full of holes.
Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!
