Your one experience overrules all other situations?<quoted text>
Traditionally men quarter with men and women with women regardless of sexual orientation in the US military.
When I was in Vietnam, I served side by side with one of the bravest men I ever met. He happened to be gay. We slept in the same compartment aboard ship. This was in the days when if someone was suspected of being gay, he disappeared. Discharged and gone and no one hardly even asked why. Many of us knew. No one said a word about it.
Barring gays from the military was always just plain stupid if you ask me. We need all the help we can get and so what if he's secretly eyeballing your willy! At least someone wants you!
Do you know the rape/abuse issues that have arisen since women have moved into more positions?
Do you know about the unwanted 'pillow fights' a gay Congressman conducted in the Navy?
I made no assertion anyone was not brave.
I pointed out the discrimination of orientation segregation for heterosexuals. That is simply a fact.
I pointed out the issue of sexual behavior risking military competency. That is simply a fact.
I pointed out that standards were lowered/ignored to satisfy politically 'correct' stupidity.
Thank you for your service.
