Also, if someone is that uncomfortable with living with openly gay servicemembers, eventhough they have mostly likely been living with closeted gay servicemembers their entire time in, then they should get out. The military should not be encouraging intolerance, and if that means getting rid of those who would are intolerant of someone because of their sexuality, then they shouldn't be in the military. They can be replaced. There are plenty of people that are lining up to fill in most positions in the military, and it is highly unlikely that those who are saying that they would get out just because they would have to live with openly gay individuals are in those fields that are highly undermanned, since it has been my experience that those people in those fields have much more important things to be concerned with than other people's sexuality.

Let me ask you this, why are openly gay inmates separated from the general population in prison? I don't mean to compare anyone with convicts, I'm just using it as example.

Hm... sorry for the hijack.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
More information on the Military Times poll: it starts with questions about sexual harassment by gays, then goes and asks opinions on repealing DADT. That is what is known as a flawed methodology. Self selected from a narrow pool of respondents with a flawed methodology. Not worth much.
