    And it's gotten surprisingly quiet in here.

    I've already made my arguments on the issue, but this about sums it up in the most brief explanation.

    Navy Pride - I doubt very many people who have not been in the military will understand why the military is not a good place to 'sexualize'. They just won't get it. Not because they're stupid, but because they simply cannot understand what type of machine the military is and why it's best to not start labeling people by their sexuality preference.

    The military doesn't care if you're gay. Like Navy Pride said, "They don't live openly is the point........."

    Like I have said many times...What liberals don't understand is the military is not there to be a social experiment....They tried it with the boy scouts and parents revolted so now they are trying with our military.......listen my left wing friends, don't **** with the military........They are there to protect you and win your wars.......You can screw with high school proms and gay marriage but leave the military alone.........

    I don't even think this is about "living openly". I think its more about still being able to live a life separate from the military, like straight people do, without fear of that private life jeopardizing your enlistment or commission if someone were to just find out through whatever means.

    You guys act like this is about changing the military and it's not. It's about citizens that serve being able to do so without fear that they are going to get fired for having the same private life as their straight counterparts.

    There is not much privacy as it is but the left wants to take the little bit there is away.........Our men deserve to have their privacy......They don't want to have to think the man or the woman next to them is checking them out.........

    So wait...who's privacy is being taken away? Sorry if I don't see that because from where I am sitting, privacy is being restored...to gays already serving with honor.

    So now we're right back to "teh gays are eye ****ing me again cuz I'm so luscious they can't help themselves"?

    Do you know how gay that comes across in and of itself?

    It's happened in other countries already and they aren't falling apart. I am tired of watching us act like the last hold out against coming into this century. Chief, it's ok. The gays are not going to burn Rome to the ground.

    Ohhh, are we getting testy in our old age? Look, mr...I give you a wide lattitude and have for a long time just because I figure you are a good person and we agree on so much more than we disagree. But you have mouthed off repeatedly in ways I find objectionable and now I am going to have my say whether you like it or not.

    you don't even know me.........
    No, I don't. And for that reason, I have zero interest in biting my tongue anymore. Hi Navy...I don't think we've ever met before. Nice to meet you.

    I am just glad the gay guys I know are not like you.......
    Let me come back with words you just said...you don't even know me. So let's move away from discussions of each other and back to the topic...why you are dead wrong about repealing DADT.

    The Marine Corps won't allow a mixed-gender boot camp, so what makes you think it's OK for gays to openly serve? If gay men can openly serve in the Marines, would this mean that straight men must shower and sleep with gay men when the situation calls for it? I can tell you right now I have no personal issues with men who are gay. But I can tell you I would have a huge problem with being forced to shower or sleep with openly gay men, not because I think they would try and make some move on me (don't be silly), but because it would make me uncomfortable. Would you force female Marines to shower with a bunch male Marines, too? Probably not. It would probably make the females and males uncomfortable.

    You have no idea how uncomfortable it would make so many Marines if gay's were allowed to openly serve with them. Is it really worth risking military effectiveness in order to allow gay's to openly serve? No, not in my opinion.
