    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
    What's wrong with just creating an all gay military separate from a straight military...Weve heard the arguments that gay soldiers are just as patriotic and efficient as straight soldiers and have served our military in an honorable way although they can't be open about it...Well...give them what they want, an all gay open unit. I think we need to at least test the concept first because although gays may be good soldiers in a hetero framework, how will they perform in an all gay unit. I mean that is why women and men do not shower together in the military...all sorts of scandels and issues would probably happen.

    Well it sounds to me like this General has no problem sleeping with gay soldiers. With DODT you will never know because the guy sleeping in your room won't be allowed to tell you, and you won't be allowed to ask him.

    Or perhaps in other words, if men and women can't share the same room, then why would you allow openly gay males to live together, or live with heterosexual males?

    What a load of crap.
    So you are in support of coed rooms?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    He should be kicked out of the corp. His views and attitude do not belong in society let alone the military. He is a disgrace to his uniform.

    Good point. I was just getting ready to post a similar question. It seems that some would think that sleeping quarters in the military should be gender neutral. I'm not one that thinks sharing a room with a homosexual would turn someone who is not. I also believe that homosexuals can and have served our country well. The issue is possible unwanted sexual advances.

    So for those that say its ok to have male/female homosexuals share the same quarters with non homosexuals of the same gender, then why have seperate quarters for male/female heterosexuals? To be fair, shouldn't we just house everyone togeather, since sex is not an issue?
