    Marine officer: Gays, straights shouldn't share housing

    Good to see some senior officers speaking up on this insanity

    CNN) -- The Marine Corps' top officer says he would want to avoid housing gay and heterosexual Marines in the same rooms on base if the ban on gays openly serving in the military is lifted.

    "I would not ask our Marines to live with someone that's homosexual if we can possibly avoid it," Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway told a Web site in an interview posted Friday. "And to me that means we've got to build [barracks] that have single rooms."

    Some senior members of the military, however, have expressed concern over the impact of the ban's repeal on unit cohesion and morale, among other things

    Please stop using your dogmatic labels against me.

    I just happen to think that, believing somehow that gays will have a negative impact on straight soldiers because they live in the same barracks. Is as rediculous as the notion that somehow black soldiers would make white soldiers worse soldiers.

    It's old, fearful thinking.

    If they're gay, and they're there anyway. Wouldn't it be like, secretly feeding your kid broccoli, and then him eating it. And then you telling him it's broccoli. And then all of a sudden he hates it, even though he had nothing to say before.

    Well, it just shows that its prejudice and fear.

    So by your logic, that means that because you haven't served as President of the United States. Then you must have no grounds to attack him?

    But i'll tell you what. If I did, or do serve. I don't mind one bit a gay in the foxhole with me. He's not gonna try and make me gay, or try and kissey kissey me.

    i don't see how them sharing houseing could have a negative impact, the gay soldiers would be just as professional as the straight soldiers, i sincerely doubt there would be a difference in on base behaviour.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Why do you think they kick gays out of the service.........A lot is because they could not help themselves and made unwanted sexual advance against straight military guys and girls.............

    If I go in the army, I will go in the Canadian army. One which allows gays to serve openly. and one that does to my knowledge not have a massive problem with gay soldiers trying to turn the entire army into gays. It makes no sense.

    It's prejudice and fear. And in 50 years there will be almost no one around to think that narrowly.

    And where did you see this Navy? when you dusted off your 1950's black and white TV and saw Queer Eye for the Straight guy? you do realise they weren't trying to make him gay right.
