    Even with DADT repealed I'm sure the military will have the lowest percentage of gay members compared to most civilian jobs. So why would 12% leave to go work a job that more than likely has gay employees?
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    The entire American military should be structured based on the model established by the Sacred Band of Thebes.

    McCain has completely lost my respect for good now.

    Some great stuff in this thread guys.

    Navy, funny how you always like to throw around Polls when it suits your cause.

    But funny how, when it shows that the vast majority of the military, and the vast majority of the American people support repeal of DADT, that you still resist.

    Why do you oppose the will of the American people Navy? Isn't that what you accuse Obama of doing?

    No, Navy once claimed that he could beat John McCain in an election. I used the quote in my sig during the 2008 election.

    so youre saying it was a relatively even distribution between gays and straights on the football team?(as opposed to my implication of "not so many"..)
    how about the non-contact sports?(such as tennis)

    really? i believe im spot on..
    youre not being honest if you think its a 1:1 ratio between gays and straight people, most particularly where aggressiveness is prominent and in the general population where there are fewer gay people than straight period. the number naturally arent there.. it doesnt take a preconception of any sort to accept the way it already is.

    btw, dont confuse me with someone who feels that gays need a scarlett letter, as i could care less who was "walking the line" with me or anyone i know.
    DADT should be repealed and sexuality shouldnt be an issue in any branch, but dont fool yourself into thinking that suddenly have of the 82nd, the 101st, seals, rangers, etc. will come out of the closet or suddenly get filled with gay people. it aint gonna happen..

    What he is saying is that gays probably play football as much as straits do, which means that any football players are, like the rest of the population, somewhere between 2 and 10 % gay. Believe it or not, the limp wristed gay hairdresser stereotype is not all that common in the gay community. They are there, but they are far from the majority of gays.

    Redress hit the nail on the head. You obviously have not had much exposure to gay people. I have a black belt in Taekwondo which is pretty far removed from Tennis.

    The only sport that I think is strictly hetero is probably wrestling, and that is because it is already too damn gay of a sport to need any gays.
