Those allies also have co-ed saunas and allow topless and nude sunbathing. But not here in the U.S. — oh no! That would be morally corrupt!

Why is it that men and women are not allowed to live and shower together in today’s military? Privacy. I don’t think the men would care, but the women do. They don’t want men gawking at them, so to protect their privacy we have separate living and shower areas. So what about my privacy? If I don’t want a gay man gawking at me in the shower or in the barracks I have to just suck it up; is that “equal?”

There is a hidden agenda by the gay lobby that many people are missing – the issue of gay marriage. When the “Don’t Ask” law was passed gay marriage was not as big an issue in our country as it is now. The day after this law passes, the military will have to address the issue of gay marriage in the military, access to post housing, benefits, etc. This will be a divisive issue, particularly on small overseas installations. Additionally, will a marriage between a gay soldier and his German boyfriend be recognized if they PCS to Ft. Hood, TX? Texas does not allow gay marriage, and the military must conform to the laws of the state in which their bases reside. So this law is a back-door deal to get federal recognition of all gay marriages, military or not.

They do have that right; I just don’t what to know who they are sleeping with, yet many (not all) feel they have to let us know. This aspect is what turns a lot of people off.

What you have to remember is that many people in this country oppose the gay lifestyle; we don’t want to know who their lovers are, but many gays feel they have to let everyone know. The “in your face” aspect of this issue is what turns off a lot of people.

No, but I’m sure that once this legislation is passed, there will be a memorial built on the Mall in DC to let us know, as the military needs a memorial and “special day” set aside for all of the special interest groups serving in the military. I’ll tell you what: gays can serve openly in the military when I have the right to openly oppose that lifestyle. Based on your comment I can see that will never happen.

The military is not a social experiment; it should not be used as a platform to promote gay rights, so leave the law like it is. Gays DO have a right to serve under the present law.
