    No they are not. Are you trying to say that straight people can not control themselves when they are around the opposite sex in the shower or same room? Straight me are sexually attracted to women just as much as gay and bisexual men are sexually attracted to men.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The troops and the Pentagon are not "okay" with it. The Commandant of the Marine Corps just published his quarterly "command climate." Most are very concerned with how this is going to change things, especially in the immediate. However, the military leadership has accepted that this is inevitable. Whether or not to do it is less the issue anymore. The issue is how to do it.

    So you would have no problem with coed showers and rooms in the military?

    Not really, no. It's still a seperate issue and has nothing to do with the topic however.

    It is not a seperate issue. Heterosexuals are sexually attracted to the opposite gender, gays are sexually attracted to the same sex. A gay man showering with other men would be no different than me showering with a bunch of women.
