    And this effects their ability to do the various jobs and the facilities they need how? Besides, almost no one claims that a "gay gene" is a sure thing, it is still a hypothesis.

    No. Of course not! I'm all about equal rights when we have the same capability but I'll be the first one to say that feminists need to shut up about their "right" to be firemen...firepeople...whatever.

    Wait, what does this have to do with gays in the military? I'm pretty sure a gay guy is as capable as a straight guy.

    That's what she just said. You don't want gays treated differently, when it comes to billets and the standards, yet we never hear anything about females being held to a lower standard.

    We don't want to treat people who are different, differenly. Do we? Where's the outrage over gender norming?

    Depends on the woman. Aviation Ordninceman is a very physical job that I am some what personally familiar with, and I knew women who could do it very well. They still needed different bathroom facilities though, since the space wasted on urinals in a man's head was needed for toilets in a woman's.

    Of course you didn't address everything I said...gay men have the same "parts" and abilities as straight men. There's no reason to treat them differently.

    No, green or white shirt, mostly white. Avionics Tech, mostly working out of the Line division as a troubleshooter and final checker(which is the best job in the military hands down...I would still be in if I could have stayed in the line division). Avionics techs do release checks and work closely with the ordies, and troubleshooters worked alot with them, including helping on loads when needed, though I was not big enough to do most of that, cept some sparrow and mer/ver loading. I was fully arm/disarm qualled.

    Thank you! People get so hung up on what really is a small difference, and miss the big picture.

    They do different things with those, "parts", so there's plenty of reason to have gay/straight segregated billets, or at least give soldiers the option. It will be good for morale and for the safety of gay soldiers who may feel threatened being surrounded by a couple hundred straight soldiers.
