    The difference in this case is "the right" asked for the DoD to do a review, and now that they did, don't like the answer given.

    Those who actively flaunt it and are in your face over their sexuality will not have long or successful careers in the military. They will also most likely be rare.

    But those go without the over 10k federal benefits from marrying. If I call a turd a rose, it still stinks.

    Unlike marrying someone of the opposite sex, it is against military rules to marry or attempt to marry someone of the same sex. That is wrong. Since I am allowed, and even encouraged, to marry the guy I love, then a gay guy should most certainly be allowed to marry a guy he loves. And, eventually, after DOMA finally goes down, they should get the same benefits that I now enjoy as a wife of a sailor and formerly as having a husband while I was on active duty.

Nukes are generally geeks and nerds.

    They are not demanding that someone accepts their lifestyle. They are demanding that they be treated fairly. You don't have to accept that a guy likes other guys, but if you're in the military, you should certainly be expected to tolerate it. The military makes people who don't accept guys who date fat chicks or girls who date outside their race accept such relationships as allowed by the military. It doesn't matter how many people don't consider such relationships as normal.
    You have your opinion I have mine. I believe gays will not rest till they feel their lifestyle is accepted by society as normal.

    No my wife left me when I was in the military
