    What's "dialogue"?
    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.

    Then this is the second time so far when you are in the wrong.
    You mean you did need studies to tell you that the earth is flat? Those are some messed up studies.


    At least as well seems to have a wide range of meanings.
    It is the military's policy however, and it is common sense that sexual distraction is as bad as any other distraction.
    Well, according to science, sexual activity correlates to an increase in performance:

    "From a physiological perspective, having sex increases testosterone levels, which cause an increase in strength, energy, aggression and competitiveness," the study said.

    "Conversely, not having sex for a period of a few months causes a significant drop in testosterone levels in both males and females, with the corresponding passiveness and decrease in aggression."
    Sexual activity improves performance

    You can just stick to your "common sense" if you like though.

    No, I find it natural that people are being distracted when they are taking a shower with a naked person from their attracting sex.
    Ok, so lets suppose that while actually in the process of taking a shower someone gets a bit distracted. Are you afraid they might forget to wash behind their ears? Oh noes!

    Once the shower is over, presumably soldiers should have enough mental discipline to focus on the task at hand.

    OK, let's take this one step at a time. Gay men, they are not women. Gay women, they are not men. Now, can you see why using men and women housing together is not a relevant issue to this?

    It seems relevant to me. Men and women aren't housed together because they are too immature to handle it. If gays and straights aren't housed together, it will be for the same reason.

    Gays and straits already are housed together, and so far, it's mostly not a problem. There is no evidence that this will change, and every reason to believe it won't. A fair number of other countries do allow gays to serve openly, and guess what, they don't have mass hysterics over housing.

    And back in the days when women pretended to be men so that they could fight for their country, they were similarly housed with the men. It wasn't a problem then. So why do they now have separate housing?

    From my time in the military we were 'young dumb and full of c..'

    and we spent 50% of the time thinking/talking about/pursuing women

    and the other 50% acting macho/getting into fights/ and looking forward to the next conflict.

    Perhaps times have moved on
