From my point of view people seem to be more productive and alert to their jobs when they arent scared to be themselves. I was raised In a Christan family where I was taught that homosexuality was wrong.. but as I grew older I realized that you have to be an open minded person to succeed in this world, therefore I think that if the military didnt have such strict guidelines on sexuality that maybe we would have a more productive Govenrment, and Military...

I disagree. If the military were as lax as the rest of the country, much less would get done. I work at a call center and there are numerous open homosexuals of both sexes. It is one of the least productive places I have ever worked.

Default Who cares ???

I can tell you this. I dont give a flying monkey FU** what you do in your bedroom,backseat,closet backyard, airplane bathroom,motorcycle,or dining room table. I do however have a problem with you feeling as though you have to share it with me when I dont ask!! I dont get to scream my heterosexuality from the mountain top and neither should Sgt Sassy Pants! I only care that you are tactically and technically proficient in your MOS. I dont care which way you swing as long as you can shoot straight and cover my *** in a firefight!!
What I dont understand is why does the Homosexual agenda feel they have to have a special ability to let everyone know thier orientation. For those of you who have never served, especially in a combat zone I ask you to refrain from speaking about that which you know nothing about. In combat you have a special bond with your fellow Soldiers. I can honestly say that I loved my guy's! Does that make me a homosexual? I think NOT!! I am afraid some homosexuals may misconstrue the feelings that run rampant when you are being shot at day in and day out. In the heat of battle emotions tend to become extremely elevated and some gay guy's may take that emotion the wrong way...make a pass and then all hell will break loose! Weapons, stress, high emotions and a homosexual pass equals a serious disaster. The Army does not openly allow homosexuals to serve to protect them! Not to protect the straight Soldiers.

Now....Shortcake, you just went from Hot to SCALDING ERUPTING VOLCANO in my book!!!!!

I put a big reply on this at one point in time and for some reason, it isn't here. Do they have to approve posts or something?
