Women and homosexual men don't belong in close quarter units such as the armed forces with hetrosexual men. Hetrosexual male team mates don't sit accross from one another wishing and thinking about having sex with each other. Homosexuals and women in US armed forces weaken combat units and pose a threat to our national security.

Communist politicians must create conflict. Feminists using the "affirmative action" scenarios to replace and dominate more effective and stable establishments is not surprising. Allowing any such destabilization based solely on claims is very dangerous ground. Allowing investigations based solely on claims is also dangerous ground, because it basically accepts the assumption that feminists have credibility simply by opening their mouthes. Once they are given credibility, there is no end to the destruction inferior minds can cause. We witnessed this in the original affirmative action nonsense degrading excellence throughout civil service. We've seen it again in affirmative action used by homosexuals using sexuality to preclude others in civil service. Less capable women have used it, ultimately degrading various civil service. Now, we are confronted with them using it to degrade our armed forces.

We need a system of honest evaluation of actual work within civil service at local, State and Federal levels, which allows the immediate, non-appeal termination of employees not performing to expected standards, or using false claims to gain notoriety and position. The system of guaranteeing lifelong positions no matter how disruptive, or inferior the employee once hired is counter productive and destructive.

Yes, we can not have an army of queers or women. Look at the proven straight male military leaders like Joan of Arc, Molly Pitcher, the Roman army, Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, Dr. Tom Waddell, etc.

We need a proven strong, straight male like Romney who heroically dodged the draft during Vietnam so that he could fight the evil lizard people in WW3.

Obviously it's the HETEROSEXUAL MEN who are weakening the combat units and are posing a threat to our national security.

Are you all cave men who can't control your base sexual urges?

Get a grip- i.e. go whack off and stop sexually assaulting anything which doesn't move fast enough to get away.

If our enemies are anything like straight American men, they're absolutely terrified of being in close quarters with women or gay men.

Arm the women & gays with needles (another phobia of hetero men) and they'll walk all over the enemy. I swear I've never seen so many supposedly macho hetero men faint at the sight of a needle. Talk about a bunch of sissies!

I spent 10 years in why should I stand on the front lines risking my life and not them. This gender and homosexual bashing is what causes the problems.

I know we are using them for nation building against my wishes but the military's job should be to kill people and break things and I think the cave men people you describe as having a hard time controlling their sexual urges would be good at that.

It may be something about natural selection, if they want to lose wars, just give up.
Don't blame mom, the teacher, or the church.

The easiest way for our emenies to defeat an all hetero caveman army would be to send naked women and gay men armed with needles. They'd all drop their guns to start masturbating and humping the naked women and then faint at the sight of a gay man with a needle. Game over!

From the view point of conservative thinking:

Women in the military must be doing things
that invite rape by their fellow soldiers.
Therefore, they have only themselves to blame.

In conservatism the victim is to blame. That is, until it happens to a conservative himself, then it's the other guy's fault.

Wedding parties are targets... Remember the wedding party
in Iraq over towards the Syrian border early in the Bush war
when about 250 celebrants were killed by American
bombers who mistook them for insurgents?

Sheit happens in war.

That you have written an idiotic statement is self evident. One man's statement- is just that- one man's statement. The Military spends millions and millions every year on sexual Harrassment/Assault training. Every Service Member, regardless of Branch of Service gets annual education. It stands to reason that throwing more money into the programs is not cost effective.

Unfortunatley, as an entity, the Military has to deal with Human Nature. When you figure out how to legislate, regulate or control that, you let me know, and together we will end war, put a stop to crime and poverty and live- perfectly...

Sexual assaults will stop in the armed forces when you put an end of them in civilian population, i.e., never. Service members are just people--some good, some bad.

Start hanging rapists. They're intra-service terrorists, when you get right down to it.
