Ever heard of if its not broke dont fix it? Every branch will have to build seperate facilities for gays and lesbians on every base. Another great way to save money Obama! There will be more hate crimes and acts of violence. We dont mind serving with you and want you to be treated equal. This will not help you only hurt you. Good luck at MCRD San Diego or MCRD Parris Island, I pray for you. Im not trying to be a jerk im just stating the facts. Military men are a tight knit group and are some of the most vulgar people you will ever meet when they are together. Dont think a gay or lesbian would be free from ridicule or harassment. Right now while we are at war has got to be the worst time to have this happen. For your own safty leave it the way it is. This would open up a whole other debate too. If you allow lesbians and gays to live together then strait men and women should be able to live together. This is not about being gay this is about safety. You are talking about living with people from all over the country that are on average 18 19 yrs old. Alot of them have not been around gay or lesbian people before. They are coming right from thier parents house. If you think there is no racism or gangs in the military you are sorely mistaken. Yes thier is still discrimination! Gangs are making members join to learn about urban warfare and how to handle weapons. They get out and train thier gangs. I believe you have every right to join and I commend you for it. As hard as recruiters try they can never weed out all the bad seeds, and they do try. There is always that 10% that ruin it for everyone else. The policy works and helps protect gays and lesbians.
