    And as I said, it does affect me because it is my money and my security. If you wish to pay me back the portion of my taxes that went to the defense budget, then I would be more than happy to send you my address and you can send me the check, then I won't have a basis by which to complain.

    You are the worst form of life that our military serves their country for. I hope you die a horrible, painfully slow death someday.

    You're right, I was a bit out of line. I just can't stand anyone downplaying the sacrifice members of our military make... at a cost much higher than that of anything a taxpayer could demand of, and for a wage much less than the average American worker.

    It's easy to take your position too Navy. Even easier in fact.

    We do have the best military in the world, and I have every confidence that something trivial like this will be handled even easier by our military than the militaries of the other countries that have managed to allow gays to serve openly.

    My grandfather served in the Navy and my Uncle served in the Navy. I'm praying that one of my brothers decides to serve so that the tradition does not die with my generation.

    Please do not think that I have no respect for service just because I'm trying to goad NP by presenting the absurdity of his view as it reflects on the nature of the military. If you wish to be angry at someone, then be angry at him. He honestly feels that our military, the greatest military in the world, is so unprofessional that straight and gay men could not serve openly together. He feels that our men in uniform are more concerned with getting hit on that with completing their missions.

    NP has done far more to belittle the military with his views in this thread that my facetiousness ever could.

    why would the enlisted marine ever need to do that? it's not about that. you are way off base here.

    Wow.

    You don't even understand what our military fights for.

    And you're lucky if you don't get dinged by the mods for this one.

    because people of the opposite sex are not normally comfortable being naked around each other, unless they are involved. easy.

    a gay man and a straight man are still the same gender, btw. i don't think too many women would care about being naked around other women, gay or straight. we don't tend to worry about our womanhood.
