    We would all be speaking German or Japanese
    I have a job, so I'm serving my country

    Besides, there's no shortage of people wanting to join the military voluntarily; so your point is irrelevant.

    I'm not really left wing, and I'm not your friend.

    You're about to be. Gays are going to be serving openly very soon, and the world won't end, and there won't be a draft, and everything will be fine.

    It's going to make you very angry and bitter. Just like it made the racists angry to see blacks in the military, and all their dire predictions fail to come true.

    except I would love to see a draft and somehow you got drafted into the Navy and had to work on the deck force under a Boatswain Mate Chief........He would square your ass away......

    That would make my day.........
    You don't know anything about me, or how hard I've worked, or whether I've served. Which is why you changed the subject to me.

    If someone keeps an apartment off base, and someone sees him coming out of it arm in arm with another guy, and that's reported to a CO, they can and will bounce him.
    wrong. you have to have proof, and you have to have proof that it has occurred multiple times to establish a pattern of behavior.

    On the other hand, sexual conduct aboard ship is restricted for everyone, as I understand it. So looking for love on a Navy ship is against regs, and would be if they repeated DADT.
    exactly; and the reasons that ban is in place apply to not repealing DADT

    Society has changed. What private employer would give up the benefit of a skilled worker just because he's gay? Only a foolish one.
    one who needs team success to come far and away ahead of individual success.

    No one will care about the sexual preferences of the guy in the next bunk so long as they can count on him shooting the guy shooting at them.
    there you are incorrect for two reasons:

    1. it's not just "the next bunk" in the combat arms. in the middle of cax out in the desert in the winter i've slept three Marines to a sleeping bag, huddled in a pile, spooning with your buddy.... the proximity almost literally can't be overstated.

    2. everyone seems to assume that the source of tension will be strictly hetero-homo sexual. there is no reason to suspect this is the case; the main source of tension (for example) in the mixed-gender units is between the sexually compatible. i'm unaware of a single mixed gender unit that has deployed without having issues that stem from that basic of human drives.
