    Why should there be separate showers for gay men and straight men?

    So what, so they are different? The shower heads are in the same place.

    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.
    Aren't there already protocols for dealing with people who have issues with each other? What if a Protestant objects to sharing quarters with a Catholic?

    Gay men are already showering with straight men. Who's distracted?

    No, not because they are different sexes, the correct answer would be because there is a sexual attraction between each of the groups to the other.

    Sexual attraction is distracting and damages the efficiency of the soldiers in doing their roles, and that is why females and males do not use the same showers (when possible), and the same is correct about any other two groups where at least one group is attracted to the other.

    Really? Are they so distracted they can't perform their jobs? Are they so distracted they can't shower?

    How exactly are they distracted?

    And why would they be more distracted if everyone knew they were gay? Would that somehow make them even gayer?
