    So the eff what? Isn't a soldier's job to do as he's told and shut the hell up about his whiny "personal issues?"

    That's a cultural thing, it's certainly not necessary. I'm sure there are plenty of military men and women who would have no problem whatsoever showering together and never get sexually attached.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Fine by me. Would cut costs making two entirely separate barracks as well.

    It is the military's policy to prevent sexual distraction when it can.

    Housing gay men and straight men together is fine and dandy, and there is absolutely no wrong in it.
    Sharing the showers is not.

    Because they're professionals, maybe. For the same reason male straight solders don't rape every woman they see. Or maybe that's the kind of caveman you want to see in our military, I don't know.

    As far as living together, I've got zero problem with it. Let them. Side by side, in the showers, everyone equal.

    It doesn't need to be made correct. It's just business as usual. It's just a shower.

    Oh but I would love to take a shower with you, Winnb.

    Just the thought of me and you naked in one small, closed room, as the water smoothly make their way down our bodies... makes me feel like I'm in Disneyland.

    Yeah, I'm sure you didn't need studies to tell you that the earth was flat either.

    It's called common sense and I love using it all day long.
    Common sense tells me that anyone who can continue to perform their job efficiently while being shot at can certainly perform at least as well having shared a shower with another person.

    I find it natural.
    Really? You find it natural to trust people to handle nuclear warheads when you can't even trust them to control themselves when taking a shower?
