    It will not. To me the question is how long until women are allowed into co-ed combat units and how long until they have co-ed open bay showers.

    I don’t think it’s a question of “fail”, I think it’s a question of whether this weakens the military.

    I think this weakens our military.

    What about it exactly has weakened your military, and why hasn't this been seen in any other military that allows gays to serve openly?

    So you concede that men are cowardly and incapable of fulfilling their duties because they are easily distracted by what someone else does in their own home-life?

    If I throw a 100$ bill out onto the theater floor will someone risk death to dive for it?

    If I strip naked and swing my liberty bell for a little tune will someone be distracted enough to commit harikari?

    If someone's not able to stick to their training in the face of a minor distraction - mental or otherwise - then they aren't a fit soldier worthy of the uniform - now are they?

    Good bye.

    Better sense of style and interior design, too.

    It just goes to show that most people assume that "all fags are pink flamingos" - when most aren't that way.

    No they aren't. So when a gay guy sues because his drill seargent was tougher on him than anyone else you will be the first in line to tell the gay guy to shut up and stick to his training right?
