    Military experience isn't universal in the sense that it gives you some sort of holistic knowledge that this ruling won't end well. There are a plethora of identities, cultures and personalities I've encountered in the service that I could easily use to counter your stance... and we'll arrive at a stand still.
    Because...

    It is in the same category. Any sort of sex outside of being between a man and a woman is therefore classified that way. You're not even seeing how one step can turn into another and another. Soon you'll be in my place, with them calling you a bigot. Who doesn't love diversity? Look at history.
    Are you seriously saying that someone who sleeps with someone of the same sex is the same as someone who rapes sheep?

    Is that what you're saying?

    Sadly there are senior officers who are so afraid for their careers that if the SECDEF told them to **** they would squat and say where........

    Sadly there are people who are so convinced that only their viewpoint is valid they assume any one with another must do so for reasons other than simply they believe differently.

    Well, to be fair, to them thier viewpoint is the only one that matters. I mean come on...If some guy is holding a gun to my face my viewpoint would be "oh crap oh crap i'm going to die!" But the viewpoint of the person holding the gun is "give me all your money or I pull the trigger!". Which view point do you think I'm going to side with?

    Most of those identities, cultures and personalities don't prevent unit members from living in the same billets. If they do, those personel are chaptered out of the service for, "an inability to adapt to military life".

    That cohabitation is the glue that creates unit cohesion. I'm sure your military experience tells you that. Yes?

    Not only are they in the minority, but most of them haven't served in anything other than a POG unit, unless they're gay. Basically, their opinion is either uninformed, or prejucied.

    Combat arms pesonel think that the repeal will have a negative effect. Should there be a ban on gays in combat arms MOS's?
