    Re: 2 Generals Wary About Repealing Gay Policy

    ...but they can serve as long as they don't know about it? As long as it's secret, they would have no problems showering with a gay? That's ridiculous. You honestly think that servicemen would abandon the military because they would feel uncomfortable with showering with gays?

    The same servicemen who are willing to risk their lives to serve our military, but you don't think they can risk showering with gays?
    You may not like it but that is the way it is and although it has not been perfect its worked pretty well since 1993.....The military does not have a problem now.....Do away with DADT and they will.........We are fighting 2 wars at the moment.we don't need the distraction........

    A sexist double standard is what it is.
    Yes it is for most men too......The military is not a democracy..........When you sign the dotted line you agree to the rules........If you don't like the way this dictatorship works, don't join....

    Constantly repeating that I do not care will not make it true, even if it makes you feel better about those who disagree with you.
    Just remember there is no military in the world like the U.S. military.....

    I don't have to serve in them to know about them as I don't have to put my hand in a fire to find out if it will burn.......

    Okay, so people who haven't served can do the same thing with regards to expecting our troops to conduct themselves professionally with the homosexuals in their units, right?

    Thankfully, our troops are the most professional in the world, bar none.

    I've showered with men. I slept in the same room with a gay man. I'm not gay and I survived unmolested. Do soldiers sleep or shower differently?

    And those who cannot act professionally do not last long. I can base that on my experience in the military.

    Yes, we do it with military style. We do more before 9:00am then you do all day. Except on the weekends when we drink heavily and sneak into the females billet after paying off the person on CQ duty or fire watch. Having openly gay solders would put a serious cramp into that.
