A couple excerpts...
LCR also produced evidence demonstrating that Defendants routinely delayed the discharge of servicemembers suspected of violating the Act's provisions until after they had completed their overseas deployments. In other words, if Defendants began an investigation of a servicemember suspected of violating the Act, the investigation would be suspended if the subject received deployment orders; not until he or she returned from combat – assuming this occurred, of course – would the investigation be completed and the servicemember discharged if found to have violated the Act.Next.Professor Aaron Belkin confirmed this evidence in his testimony; his research into military architecture revealed that apart from basic training sites and service academies where there are open showers, servicemembers usually have access to single stall showers. (Trial Tr. 617:21-619:1, July 15, 2010.) According to Professor Belkin, "the army, in recent years, has implemented something called the one-plus-one barracks design standard.

Too bad, so sad. Obviously, the facts aren't in your favor.
This whole shower thing is simply rediculous. SOme barracks have stalls, some barracks have open bays, I haven't seen barracks that have both. That being said, there are no barracks that have males and females sharing showers, regardless of the configuration; hence, gays and straights can't be forced to share billets; per the commandant of the Marine Corps.
It failed boys and girls (if it still okay to call people by those term) get over it and move on. Unless your a gay person in the Military and in that case just shut up and do you job and keep you thoughts, proclivities and your hands to yourself and you'll be fine.
But then there is that Judges ruling and we have to wait to see what the Supreme Court finally Rules.
In the mean time we are not going to have any affect on the question and I don't care on a personal level.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

Obama ****ed this up. The only way we would have a dream of repealing this now is if the Pentagon review came back with glowing support for repeal. That is not likely to happen and it was irresponsible of the Democrats to ever allow such a review to take place to begin with. Obama played politics and lost and its the gay soldiers who are going to suffer the most.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
