    Your problem is that I never said that even though you really, really wish I had. I'm sure there are exceptional gay soldiers and lousy ones, just like with heterosexuals.

    You're making the assumption that gay soldiers aren't going to discriminate against straight soldiers.

    How are you going to feel, when soldiers refuse to billet with soldiers who are of a different sexual orientation?

    What exactly does that have to do with the gayness of a particular officer? A bad and unworthy officer discriminates. Their sexual orientation has nothing to do with it. Of course, you think that being gay makes you bad and unworthy...

    It took a while, but someone finally called a homophobe. Is that how you explain my suggestion that the ban on gays in the miltiary be lifted? Because I'm a homophobe?

    If there is discrimination, it should be reported and addressed. You're making the assumption that it won't.

    I'll feel like Leavenworth will need to expand since they are refusing an order.

    I think the UCMJ can take of that considering sex is only allowed on base between people that are married.
