    Okay, but what about the housing once openness is okay? Before it didn't matter because supposedly you didn't know who was gay. But now that you know, straight men may object to being in the same living quarters. So shouldn't separate quarters be arranged for openly gay soldiers?

    I don't see why should their objection to be with a gay in the same room even be considered.

    Separation should exist only in the showers, beyond that there's no specific problem surrounding gays and straights in the same room.

    Why would it matter if straight men know who's gay?

    Why are there separate showers for men and women?

    Sexual distraction in the military is prevented when possible.

    The only place in the military, for example, where men and women share the showers, is in submarines.

    They don't occupy them at the same time.
