    Um, anyone can complain about jokes that they find offensive. In fact, a person doesn't even have to be gay to complain about such jokes.

It will be like anything else. There will be an awkward period, and then when things start happening(deployments and such) people will forget all about it and just treat each other as squadmates or shipmates or whatever.
    Great if aggravating is how I would describe him too. He also snores and horribly overcooks scrambled eggs, but I wouldn't expect you to know that.

    That would be when a guy's mouth opens.

    I totally respect your service, Redress. I just don't think you can really speak for everybody who is serving. Again, gay people are not barred from service. I remember when they were.

    It's not an official ban, but it is a de facto ban of LGBT Americans.

    This is not about ensuring that gays can serve in the military, it is about making everyone's service in the military abide by the same rules. It is about eliminating discrimination within the service. It is about ensuring that the military must hold up their standards that intolerance is not acceptable in the military.

    Again, that wasn't my experience. What few females I had contact with were nothing but trouble waiting for a place to happen. I got an Article 15 one time for cussing and a female soldier simply heard me. I didn't even know she was there, but she was offended and I got burnt for it.

    All the more reason to concentrate on the actual ban on gays and stop boo-day'n about ****ing DADT!

    This seems like a pretty flimsy assurance to hang people's career on. In my experience, people who go looking for harassment usually find it.
