As the debate rages on I get more infuriated by it. I don't understand the logic behind the policy. It's basically a stance that says the military wants to ban known homosexuals but at the same time doesn't want to know who is gay. I've been told that unless I serve in the military I wouldn't understand what having gay people serve alongside with you entails. An immediate example that pops up are the showers. I used to work out in a gym in the Village in NYC. LOTS of gay guys there. Didn't bother me. I've slept in the same room as gay guys. Didn't bother me.
And I could be off base here but it seems to me most of the resistance is coming from the male side of the fence. I don't see a lot of protests from the ladies. Any women out there in the military wish to chime in? And for the guys, are you as against gay women serving as you are men? Just asking.
