    It's old, fearful thinking.

    If they're gay, and they're there anyway. Wouldn't it be like, secretly feeding your kid broccoli, and then him eating it. And then you telling him it's broccoli. And then all of a sudden he hates it, even though he had nothing to say before.

    Well, it just shows that its prejudice and fear.
    I predicted this would come. Answer me this, then why don't they house the women with the straight men?

    Homophobic thinking has very little to do with reality. It's simply put, a VERY deep seated fear that cannot be reasoned with.

    Furthermore, the more one throws out hateful rhetoric while at the same time, vociferously denying being a homophobe, the more likely the person does in fact, suffer from this mental disorder.

    Yes, when you have nothing, focus on calling everyone who knows the facts 'homophobes' and their pointing out the serious problems with such politicized agendas 'Hate Speech'.

    Never mind actually coming up with any rebuttals or even a sane response.

    And when you can't dispute the message, kill the messenger.

    CNN) -- The Marine Corps' top officer says he would want to avoid housing gay and heterosexual Marines in the same rooms on base if the ban on gays openly serving in the military is lifted.

    "I would not ask our Marines to live with someone that's homosexual if we can possibly avoid it," Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway told a Web site in an interview posted Friday. "And to me that means we've got to build [barracks] that have single rooms."

    Some senior members of the military, however, have expressed concern over the impact of the ban's repeal on unit cohesion and morale, among other things
    "i would not ask our marines....." aren't gays also "our marines"?

    i believe it's military bashing to assume our armed forces can't handle themselves around gay people. what are they, neanderthals who will lose their minds when in close proximity to jallman? would he "turn them"?

    That's your tactics, not mine, obviously. Projection isn't a refutation.

    I will, thanks. ...

    As you said, you have zero, just hubris.

    There will be a need to draw up acceptable lines of conduct for the individuals on both sides of this issue.....
    I apologize if I offended anyone with my gut reaction to an unwelcomed advance......
    lol.......so, if you hit on a woman she has every right to break your face?

    just because you aren't as attractive as she might require?

    No stats on homosexual men in the military's infection rates, but you can bet it's much higher than the norm, also, so any BS about military infection rates would have to distinguish between homosexual males and 'everybody else' to have any real meaning.

    And of course the 'solution' is always to pointlessly waste yet more piles of money 'educating' them, as if it's actually possible not to have heard of AIDs in the homosexual 'community'.
    Military members are required to have an HIV test at least once every 2 years. Many commands, at least in the Navy, will do one every year when the sailor comes in for his/her annual checkup. There currently are known HIV positive sailors serving on active duty. They are allowed to stay in the Navy, but they cannot serve overseas. (We were told in Hawaii, that there were 2-3 HIV positive sailors working there, but we were not allowed to know who they were, or their sexuality.) Also, the military has annual training on STDs, including HIV/AIDS, and prevention methods to spreading STDs. In fact, just a couple of years ago, some STD questions were on the Chief's exam.
