Now, it is absolutely acceptable for a person to not answer such questions, if they don't want to, but it isn't acceptable to not expect some of these questions.

    I am trying to get military policy changed to make it fair. The unfairness exists in the policy that allows heterosexuals to answer personal questions about themselves, if they want to, as completely as they want to, in front of anyone else in the military, with no fear of punishment. Homosexuals however, can't answer those same questions the same way as heterosexuals without fear of being discharged for answering them truthfully.

    Re: 95% of Marines uncomfortable serving with openly gay troops

    Why do you constantly have to label everyone who supports gays serving openly as "lefties"?
    I merely said 'Either that, or it's lefties making the usual cack-handed attempts to fix what ain't broke, hence the topicality.'

    That generalisation doesn't state that it's just lefties. A small point but one I thought I'd mention.




    Also, there are plenty of servicemembers who have actually served with openly gay sailors/soldiers/marines who could tell those who are against it that they have nothing to fear if they would just get over their fears of what might happen.
    If flaunting or unguarded homosexuals aren't to everyone's taste then it's actually quite fascist to try and control peoples' minds. Don't bully people by all means. But on the other hand don't get forced to sit and be reprogrammed by diversity trainers, or have to accept any shameless parading of unnatural sexual proclivities when the latest copy of Rectum of the Week arrives in the mail.

    Overall, if homos themselves don't make an issue out of it then it shouldn't matter. But if they don'tthen the afore-mentioned liberal-leftists will.

    Wow, must be nice to sit around talking trash knowing those you are trashing are fighting for your right to do so.

    I'm 'trashing are fighting for' my right to do so? I've not heard that expression. It's certainly very glib.



    But if you mean I'm trashing the people fighting for my rights, Liberals do no such thing - unless we're talking the right to remain silent (if you don't fit the mould).

    Why would any one want others to know about their private personal life?

    Pul-lease. These are standard questions that are commonly asked when people meet.
    What does that have to do with a gay. A gay would say I am not married and do not have a girlfriend which would be the truth.

    Nice spin but don't ask means that and you keep saying they are asking

    Soldiers should be manly and strong, not feminized and sensitive. Even the straight men in our armies today are not as manly as the 300 Spartans that destroyed the Persians. Hell, let's also force soldiers in Britain to "act homosexual." Oh wait, that's already happening. Hm... what else can we pervert?
