What is with people being against gays in the military? Are they afraid that they can,t fight as well as straight people? I personally don't care if someone is gay or not as long as they can do the job. We fight along side with allied militaries, which i believe all have openly gay personnel. We don't seem to mind as long as they are from another country. Maybe they think someone will peek at them in the shower, but really do they think that every gay person wants them, that would be like thinking every person of the opposite sex wants them. I think what it really comes down too is they are homophobic and have some issues of their own.
I think in this day and age anyone should be allowed to serve their country, men,women and gays. Besides if we started a draft that would be one less thing that people could use to try and get out of duty. Gays are already in the service, and it seems that as long as they don't let anyone know then it's fine, so how does being open about it change anything.
I served in the army in the 70s and i knew a couple of guys that i thought might be gay but i did'nt think too much about it they were good people and i trusted them to have my back,if we went to war. So we should just let them in and be done with it, there are much more important things to worry about in this country without wondering about what goes on in someones bedroom.
