    Funny...because I've heard more about straight people engaging in daisy chains than I ever have heard about gay people. I thought it kinda died out in the 60's-70's

    If we could avoid that kind of blowback, shouldn't we do it? I would like to avoid it. Wouldn't you?
    It was harder for blacks to hide, but that doesn't change the dynamics much. Soldiers still had to interact with someone many did not want to. And it being harder, potentially even dangerous, was not reason to not allow them to serve with those they served with. And the army adjusted despite any trouble or problems. And it was right regardless of the cost. The same is true here.

    That said, I suspect we would have less trouble than you might think. The objection to homosexuals is much less than the objection to segregation was back then.

    Well over half regular marriages end in divorce, children are having sex at like 14 now. When it comes to promiscuity, homosexuals do not have the monopoly. In fact, in general humans sexual activities have changed quite a lot; hetero and homosexual alike. Most people have multiple sex partners. I've not known one person yet who has married the first person they slept with. For most of us, that would be a most unfortunate decision. I'd say the promiscuity of gay and straight folk are probably about equal, maybe not exactly equal but close.

    You can document this, or is it just another wild claim with no basis in reality?

    There is no proof that homosexuals are the most promiscuous people in the world. Also, how would this justify denying them their rights (and their partner's rights) in the military?

    IMO, Navy is exactly right, liberals live in a fantasy world where they are never wrong, there are no consequences for failure, and everyone is equal in all aspects including outcome. If you and others are wrong regarding your assessment then what are the consequences to the military? This law has been on the books for 17 years so tell us the consequences of that law in regards to national security. We know the results with the law but not without it. There are proponents on each side so tell me what is the worst case scenerio if the law is repealed and then ask yourself if it is worth it?
