    But you are calling for a specific group to be excluded from a public, government program. If that isn't homophobic, I am not sure what is.

    It's a whole different story when it's not your ass on the line and not one of your comrades. The whole, "band of brothers", thing and all. Ya know?

    How is my support of lifting the ban on gays in the military calling for the exclusion of a specific group?

    ...you know there is no ban on gays serving in the military, right?

    No. Because the military should not be promoting any type of intolerance or discrimination. And, your earlier suggestion that troops simply be ordered to not be allowed to talk about their sexuality/significant others/relationships will not work. You can try to get it through all you want, but it won't happen.
