    Again, why is it such a big deal that you "have to talk about it". This is the military, not Oprah. What importance is it to a soldier to walk around talking about what gender he likes to **** in his/her spare time?

    The gay community isn't happy unless they're in your face with their sexuality all the time. Why else would you need a gay parade with men walking on their hands and knees with dog collars and leashes?

    The general message is "nanny, nanny, boo-boo, I'm gay and you have to accept it, ha ha."

    Hey, go ahead and bone all the ass you want. Just leave me alone about it, okay?

    So wonderful to hear that you have so steadfastly refused to show any women any interest in public like you have. The fact that you have gotten to where you are without ever flirting with a woman, holding her hand, kissing her, referring to her fondly, commenting on sex in any way or otherwise showing any public display of your heterosexualty is most admirable.

    You are completely misunderstanding the idea behind a Gay Pride Parade. Regardless, how are they personally bothering you or getting in your face about it? If you don't like it, don't attend.

    One could easily use that same argument on the other side as well. We live in a heterosexually dominated culture. It's everywhere you look. Couples are holding hands, kissing, etc. Not to mention the fact that 90% of all movies, tv shows, books, etc. contain mostly, if not all, heterosexual couples. So really, one could argue that you are also shoving your lifestyle in their face.

    Yeah, because heterosexual men NEVER offhandedly mention their wife or girlfriend.

    Although I can't say for sure since I haven't read the language of the DADT repeal, I'm pretty sure there is nothing in there about soldiers on their hands and knees wearing leashes.

    Do you think that heterosexual soldiers should be dismissed if they don't leave people alone about their sexuality? Should they be dismissed if they ever mention their wife or girlfriend, talk about sex with their military buddies, or publicly express any interest in any female?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    and who knows -- tomorrow, it may be something else getting shoved in the face.

    Apparently he doesn't know any heterosexuals either. I can't go through a ****ing day without having heterosexuality shoved in my face. People all around holding hands, kissing. Folks I work with talking about their ****ing spouses. Why do they have to make a big deal about it? Why do they have to shove in my face that they like to **** the opposite gender? Some of them even have the audacity to have pictures of their heterosexual lovers on their ****ing desks.

    I personally think the whole DADT debate is manufactured drama. If you think about it practically the policy protects gays and allows the military to avoid potential discipline and morale problems. As much as the zealots for gay rights want total acceptance now it can't be forced. This has to be necessarily a slow process. Hell, most places in our society are still unofficially don't ask don't tell. We kinda know but don't ask in a lot of cases.
