    Yes, I can talk to the issues, as can any one else here. Trying to silence people who disagree with bogus "you don't understand" crap is low.

    My comments about this subject are about gay men in the Navy aboard ship.........I don't know what goes on aboard ship in the female quarters and could care less......I believe a lot of women are switch hit anyhow.............

    I wonder how much this cost me as a tax payer because of homophobes?

    Because a highly decorated nurse who has treated the wounded off the battlefield is a grave threat to unit cohesion and military readiness? Yup, I can see how you could justify spending tax dollars to appeal that decision. Do you ever get tired of yourself?

    Um...okay. Let me give you a little civics lesson. You see, there are these three branches of government. The Legistlative branch makes the law. The Judicial Branch determines whether the law is Constitutional. And the Exectutive branch enforces the law.

    Just not sure whether you were aware of that fact that they teach in 5th grade.

    I lived in campus housing most of my college career. Never on any housing application did it ask my sexual orientation. Never did I have problems with my roommates. When I shared showers at the gym, I never had problems with any of the people there.

    Are you not the least bit ashamed that college freshman can handle rooming and sharing showers with openly gay men and you cannot? You have to make that big of a deal out of something that nobody in civilian life does?
