I, and others, have given you plenty of legitimate reasons for the military to discriminate against certain people when it comes to either not allowing them to serve or preventing them from serving in certain areas, so you need to provide legitimate reasons why gays shouldn't be allowed to serve or serve in certain areas.
    Not legitimate but discimination. How would multiple wives hurt anyone?

    Especially since gays are suppose to be roughly between 1 in 10 and 2 in 10 Americans. 5% of gays are uncomfortable with other gays in the military? Really.
