    Wait...why would anyone's sexuality come out in boot camp? What possible reason could anyone have to declare their sexuality among peers they don't know and have to share those quarters with?

    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?
    They're already doing it. Trust me, I know.

    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.
    I don't see how that can make you any more uncomfortable than sleeping and showering with a bunch of guys and knowing that one of them is likely gay but not knowing which one or ones. Better the devil you know than the one you don't...

    Would you force female Marines to shower with a bunch male Marines, too? Probably not. It would probably make the females and males uncomfortable.
    I don't know what situation would warrant it except some worst case Starship Troopers scenario. Let's not deflect to issues we don't have to solve in trying to solve the one in front of us.

    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.
    I think timing of the order is key. Certainly not to be done while we are at war anywhere in the world. And not to take effect in troops that are stationed in high risk zones...it should be a very well planned cycle.

    Gays and Lesbians were allowed to serve in the military up until 1982 (DoD Directive 1332) so who is really doing the anti-freedom social experiments? You, my right wing friend.

    Right. First of all I'm ugly and it'd never happen. Second, since I'm not a bigot it wouldn't bother me much.

    When I joined the Navy I had to sign a statement that I was not a homosexual and had never participated in any homosexual activities....That is the instrument they used to discharge gay men who made unwanted sexual advances along with the UCMJ........

    And what I have said a number of times is when are you going to back up your claims Navy? The gay a day discharges...got any sources to that claim? Us liberals hate the military...can you source that? Are you going to offer any substance?

    I certainly feel safe knowing the military that is meant to protect me is filled with people like yourself. I can certainly sleep well tonight knowing that the security of this country rests in the hands of men who find something to fear in the prospect of getting hit on by other men.

    All I can say is THANK GOD that the mindset of some on this board is dying off with them. The younger generation is much more tolerant and accepting of other people. The younger generation doesn't have the same bigoted mindset that says that everyone should live by their views.
    Thankfully, this country is moving towards a more loving, understanding and accepting culture. The close minded ways of the past are dying out....slowly but surely.
