Most cases were coming from the other branches in general, but the most extreme came from the Corps because of the culture. In terms of status, the Marine Corps has a certain "manhood" attached to it. There's a certain level of alpha male that isn't found in other places. Therefore, we are talking about a cultural shift in identity for us. Think about what Hollwood has portrayed as the stereotypical homosexual. Now put a set of Dress Blues on it. The term "homosexual Marine" just doesn't fit in a lot of minds. But there's a certain kind of homosexual that joins and would join even under "serving openly." They are not the effeminate stereotype.

    From blacks to women, the adaptation process in the Marine Corps hasn't been without imperfection. But because Marines are bred to obey orders and to enforce orders while keeping their personal opinions out of it, they will assimilate to the new policies easier. Personal opinion will be relegated to conduct off duty, which is where the racial cases of the past took place. However, the leadership, from General to Corporal, will deal with it because that is their job.

    If the President makes it so, the Comandant will print the orders. Everyone below will have a job to do.

    Should men and women share housing? Nope, gays and straights shouldn't either.

    You are aware that gay men are not women, and gay women are not men, and therefore it's a false comparison?

    They are not to be compared in the physical. But emotionally they are differently polarized. A gay man can relate to what a woman feels towards men in a way I could never. This places them on the other side in this respect.

    The real question is what do you do with the Bi? The undecided add a whole new complexity to the situation.

    That is actually not 100 % true either. Many(most?) gay men if they did not tell you, you would never know.

    I agree, which is why our ideas of what a gay man looks like (thanks to Hollywood and television) is different from what has and will serve. But they still like ding-a-lings.

    Lesbians get it the worse. Every one expects the Hollywood version of lesbians, instead of the reality
