    I can however, see major issues with coed military living spaces, on a practical level. Reasonably speaking, this will never happen. First, who do you think a military wife is more threatened by, a female soldier/sailor/Marine or a gay soldier/sailor/Marine? Ditto for the military husbands. Spouses have at least some influence over military policy, and there is very little chance that military spouses will accept the military putting men and women together quietly. Second, there is a big difference in women and gay men (since most of this worry is actually the thought of gay men serving openly, not really so much for the gay women). It's pretty obvious how a man is different than a woman, not always so openly obvious as how a gay man is different than a straight man. DADT being repealed and the rules against gays going away won't actually force gay men or women to admit they are gay. And fewer of them are going to actually admit to being gay if it means being ostracized to a separate berthing because of it, most likely. So exactly are you going to force someone to openly admit they are gay? Do you really think the military is going to spend extra money on investigating someone's sexuality just to be able to put them in a separate berthing?
    I am sorry but changing with someone and showering and sleeping close to them is 2 different things......I have seen women change clothes on tthe beach in Nice France and you could see nothing no matter how hard you tried..................

    Soundss like your hubby is a wise man....you should listen to him........Oh and thank you both for your service........


    We use to have a saying.....A wife does not come with a full seabag........If they don't like the way the navy does things that is their problem....


    Of course the Navy is never going to do what I said but if you think about it then it is the perfect solution......

    When I was in the Navy stationed at Pearl the enlisted barrack had 3 floor......the women slept on the top floor and the men on the second floor with only a fireman fire watch between them........You would never believe how much those stairs were used at night......a female 3rd class yeoman started selling it until she got caught and had to go to mass.........She got busted to seaman and fined a hundred dollars.......On the way out of the court room she said...."Hell no problem I can make that up in one night."

    And you constantly go off on rants about how evil liberals are and label anyone who disagrees with you as a liberal. Just saying...

    So, Navy...going to document a single one of your claims yet? There is a reason you are getting soundly embarrassed this debate you know.

    You can run from your posts my left wing friend but you can't hide from them...They give you away besides there are probably only about 40 true conservatives in DP and they are my friends in my profile.......

    I will answer that question: Yes. I think most straight men and women ARE (unlike you) able to control themselves. There are rules that provide for punishment for those who cannot.

    BTW Navy....going back to my previous question: Referencing your Lesbian that raised a family issue. Do you think Larry Craig (who has been married for many years and raised a family) is straight (and just likes to engage in gay sex in airport restrooms)?

    Gays already do live together on board ship. So what is the point you trying to make?
