Good grief. I already acknowledged the prejudices... remember the perfect world part?
But now here comes the race card..... way back along time ago I am sure there were those that didn't want to share the same showers, drinking fountains, bunk area, mess halls, blah blah blah with black folks. But it happened. It was absorbed. Now who in the military right now has any doubts that they are sharing the bunks and showers with the homosexuals already? Go ahead raise your hands. :shock: Oh really? How naive are you? 8-)
I had thought about the separation part. You have the straight guys. The straight ladies. The gay guys. The Lesbians. The bisexuals.
About the homosexual guys quarters..... do you even dare to put them in the same room together? Wouldn't that be the same as putting men and women together? (straight that is) How about the lesbians. Perhaps they all would need complete separate housing..... EACH :shock:
Do we determine the "girly" gay guy and put them with the determined "girly" lesbians? And the Manly of each with the manly of the other?
When you become a minority and the majority starts taking away your rights
you don't have a right to serve. the military is not a equal opportunity employer.
I wasn't talking about right to serve, just rights in general. I remember the draft. Some friends of mine were whisked away. "Bye Bye. Say hello to Charlie for me."
i am not talking about hate. however, if a straight person, no matter how "open minded" they are, actually visualizes the sex act between those of the same sex, there is almost always a certain amount of repulsion. call it discomfort if you wish. the exception might be with men thinking about women. for some reason, some men like that fantasy.
for those of us who are older and have dealt with our own sexuality it would not be a problem. for those who are still youngsters, the ones who will be impacted by this decision and the ones who bear the burden of bad living conditions and the stress of fighting, it will be a problem.
maybe you think they should suck it up. i think they have enough to suck up already.
As I said.... For some reason it seems people think they would be going around porking each other all the time. Are you saying if you had a room full of straight men and women an orgy would break out? OH wait. Men and women are quite often in the same room and nothing happens. WOW Wonder if homosexuals can possibly have the same restraint?
I do not care to hear about the sexual escapades of anyone. Never have. When it starts I find a graceful way to walk out. Like start moving my legs :-D
Our kids in public schools and colleges are more than likely to see this kind of stuff everyday. I do not believe they have don't ask don't tell policies there. So the younger folks you all seem so worried about probably excepts it a lot more than you do. (You = generalization)
