    I wonder how many of our troops are offended when they hear that some people think they are not mature enough to serve alongside gays.

    Crossdressing is also different from being transgendered.

    They might be offened, if someone was actually saying that. But...

    How 'bout you ask the 67% of Marines and 58% of Army soldiers, serving in combat arms units about it?

    Or the 90 + % of those same people who have actually served with gays who think it would not be a problem.

    Furthermore, they're already in the military, they just don't say they're homosexual. Even if we granted your premise that most homosexuals are violent rapists, wouldn't it be better to know who is and who isn't a homosexual? Aren't you at greater risk when it could be anyone in your squad? One second you're dropping the soap, the next your best mate is up in your junk.

    Ahh, there's nothing more entertaining than observing the beliefs of people like you
    100% of gays, aren't violent rapists? A gay man, or woman has never been raped by another gay man, or woman? Ever???? In the history of mankind, it's never happened?

    This is why I don't put stock in polls. You can always fiddle with the numbers to prove your point. BTW, "90+%", is a new number. Where did that come from?

    Yes, the DoD investigation. Combat troops where against it, but if you narrow it to just those who have served with gays, the number changes dramatically.

    Not in the military, they're not. The U.S. armed forces has never had the same level of free speech that the civilian world does.

    What percentage of the ranks does that group make up?

    Now you're playing some serious numbers games.
