    The military managed to work this out with females and blacks, I'm sure they'll manage. They're big boys (and girls) for the most part.


    ****** In the past 3 decades more problems than revealed have taken place in the Military from the inclusion of larger & larger amounts of Women . Men with Good careers got tempted and cashiered because of it YEYT now we put open individuals admitting their attracted to some they live in close confines with - but that's just fine
    LMFAO. Poor men who couldn't keep their penises in their pants because of Evil WOMEN who tempted them. Perhaps Burkhas should be standard issue female military garb.

    ***** To many (and it's grown since the early 70's) who are mostly on one side in this issue - the very understanding of being in the Military - or going in Harms Way or having to deal with certain matters is totally beyond their understanding . It's like giving them a Chinese Newspaper and expecting a synopsis an hour later

    **** They cannot even begin to comprehend how this could be counterproductive eventually.

    I don't see why would that be a problem, as long as they get separated showers and as long as they receive a role that individually suits them(both mentally and physically).

    Shouldn't be a problem at all.

    Slippery slope arguments suck. If you cannot understand the difference between a woman and a gay man, or a man and a gay woman, you are hopeless.

    Those men who got cashiered got so because of their own actions. Let's not blame the victim. There are rules in place to handle unwanted attention, this is not going to change.

    **** Why won't you elaborate on your opinion and explain how exactly would it be counterproductive.

    **** It would be very productive to our understanding of your position.

    OK so lets put the lesbians with the men.
    Do you think sexual preference is the only reason why men/women are not grouped?

    Attraction to what?
    Do you think because somebody is gay they therefore must be attracted to all men? Do you live in a confined space with women?

    There are and always have been gays in the military. The only issue is do you require them to lie or is it ok to tell the truth. Period.

    I wouldn't personally have a problem serving alongside a gay person.
