    Not only that. Pretending that gay people aren't there doesn't make them not be there. If someone is nervous that their privates (not the rank) may be gazed on while in the shower or a locker room. Guess what, its just as likely to be happening right now.

    Again, you are a family, you need to be comfortable with one another in order to be sucessful.

    It is happening now, and more than that, many/most people in the military are probably already showing with people they know, or at least suspect, are gay.

    And this is why I say ignorance is bliss. You cant feel uncomfortable about something you dont know about.

    I agree, but I'm speaking about the female collective of the military.
    As far as I'm concerned, make it all co-ed and let everyone deal with it. They aren't forced to join the military. If they don't want to shower with other people, they shouldn't join.
    Understood.
    Of course I strongly disagree with that since I believe that a lot of females that would have been able to greatly contribute to the military would be objecting to such an opinion.

    No it's not. We showered with other men since high school and college gay or not. It was never a problem. Now all of a sudden because it is the military, showering has become an exorcise in sexual voyeurism? Don't make me laugh.

    Then it's the homophobes jobs to get comfortable with their fellow soldiers who are homosexual. The homosexuals aren't causing the problem the homophobes are, and we need to deal with them, not the LGBT soldiers. Like I said, their professionals, get over it, and do your job. If you can't get out.
    Being a LGBT person isn't a bad thing, and we shouldn't punish them for wanting to serve in the military. They shouldn't be the ones having to sacrifice, because someone is uncomfortable with the way they live.
