It's not going to be like that, at all. Society and the military are much more ready to accept gays as just people than they where to being ready to accept blacks as just people.

    AS far as being well endowed, we need Jallman here so we can check.
    At the end of the day, this is about treating people who are "different", differently.

    Nah. I have a ton of respect for him, and have asked for his opinion more than once. He is very set in his opinions, but they are derived from thought, even if they are wrong.

    You've summed up the basis in all our arguments in two sentences.

    You couldn't more wrong. There are more vets here that are saying the same thing I'm saying than the other way around.

    BTW, point out where I say that I'm against gays serving in the military, open, or otherwise. Perhaps you should read what I'm actually posting, rather than seeing what you want to see?

    Males and females are, "different", and are treated, "differently", within the military.

    Funny, I have not seen this "more vets". Care to link to the examples? Back up your point?

    And the different ways they are treated have a basis in different biology mostly. Gays don't have a different biology.

    Technically, they do, since some claim that the, "gay gene", actually exists.

    I'm still waiting for you to point out where I said that gays shouldn't serve in the military. Actaully, I've advocated allowing gays to serve in the military and suggested ideas to make that easier and safer gay and straight soldiers alike. I guess your hatred won't let you see that, though.
