    They can get in trouble for it now. I really don't see that as the biggest hurdle to repealing DADT.

    There EO boards are going to be very busy, after DADT is repealed.

    What's common sense is that the military is different than other types of jobs. Guys live in very close proximity to each other. I don't think our military people are idiots at all, it's just I can understand how living with other guys who find you sexually desirable is probably something you wouldn't even want to know.

    If people have a problem with things being said, they can ask for people to stop making that kind of comment. If the people continue to do so, then a report can be filed. It does happen, it's relatively rare. People with skin thin enough to take offense don't last long in the military as a general rule.

    I'm actually expecting a decline. After all, once DADT is repealed, gay members will be allowed to talk about their partners. People are far less likely to mispercieve sexual harrassment from someone when they know that individaul is already involved with someone.

    But how do you know this? Let me ask you, if someone made repeated jokes about homosexuals, would that be harassment?

    I would indeed like to bet. If they're not the type of people to complain about it now, I don't see how the ability to be open will change their desire to whine.

    That wasn't my experience.

    Note the award under my name on the left here. See where it lists my 6 years of naval service. I have lived in as close a quarters as you can get, and I can state without question that gays can both handle that environment and be people can handle being around gays in that environment.

    Well, of course they're not going to complain about it, now. Don't ask, don't tell; remember?
