What are your thoughts?
there's already a thread on this in POLITICS
i think if your willing to fight for your country then you should be givin the chance to fight no matter what you are
I think you should stop writing really huge unless there's some specific reason.
I'm "gay" and in the military...so is my boyfriend. LoL.
Maybe he just always shouts and feels compelled to do the same online.
The search function works you know...
well, as long as you ask
could go either way on the issue
the military has a specific function and duty, so it is logical to restrict membership to those who can perform, as opposed to some ideological requirement that it represent the make-up of the nation
on the other hand, openly gay members may be able to serve without adverse consequence
more important issues obtain, I feel
I'm going to change my position
I just read:
We raced to the Kansas City airport. When we arrived at the hospital, Barry was clinging to life. His face was unrecognizable. Contrary to what the colonel had said on the telephone, Barry had not been kicked in the head by the other soldier. He had been beaten with a baseball bat as he slept in the barracks. The doctor said he had irreparable brain damage and recovery was unlikely.
Barry had been a victim of constant, vicious harassment after another soldier -- one of two involved in his murder -- started a rumor that he was gay. .."

Had it not been for DADT, this and similar incidents would never have happened
We're already in the military! America is one of the last countries to discriminate against gay and lesbian service members. Just get over it already!
I love you.
Bet there would be minimum problems with gays allowed to be open, seems just old farts have a problem with it.
:unitedstates: To everyone who is now in the military or have served....a big THANK YOU!
Some people just make this more complex that it has to be.
Have all the Lesbians bunk with the guys since they have no sexual desired for them and the gay guys get to bunk with the gals. The Bisexuals can bunk together cause they don't care either way.
Now was that so hard?
Nobody thinks the Israeli Defense Force are less than crack soldiers.
They openly accept gays.
Good call, Mandoman!
Having served in the US Army from the early 80's until the late 90's, I interacted with gay and lesbian soldiers who had to remain closeted, and I feel that they were ostracized because of their orientation.
I think that DRAMATICALLY cut down on both Combat Readinessand Effectiveness.
Personally, I support ANYONE who wants to serve their country... Don't Ask Don't Tell was a farce, and I hope they scrap it !
As long as they do there job I could care less. I have a friend that is a gay and he is one of the best fighters I know.
how to answer this.
Ok. I will put it this wat.
Gays in the miliatry is just a bullshit argment mounted by bigots for more power.
Knowing from my father and nephew who have fought in both Vietnam and Afghanistan with your US duty, your on the ground men and women are sure in need of some far more enlightened command.
They fill their heads full of bullshit.
The fact that these guys dont like gays, is just one of many ways these old farts pepetuate their stranglehold.
I will refrain from describing what my dad and nephews have said. Of course, these could be exceptions.
it is mostly the general acceptance of gay population, that is the problem. one can imagine the conversations between guys talking about their plans for the weekend and one of them says: "me and my boyfriend are going to..."
when none of the straight guys make any wtf reaction and just continue talking then we can talk about having it OK
I am lucky to live in the country where those problems were solved in the last century.
