    When extremes collide.

    We also don’t need bigoted, mouth breathing morons like scottfreitas but there you go.

    Good Lord, you people are disrespectful of honest, brave, professional soldiers. Get a life.

    Actually, Fritoboy, we need every able-bodied individual we can get. I don’t know if you’ve looked at the stats, but even Faux News reported on this:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/11/05/new-report-says-percent-young-americans-unfit-military-service/

    75 PERCENT of all potential enlistees ages 17 -24 are either too fat, too uneducated, or have a criminal record that prevents them from enlisting. BOO YAH!

    Gays, on the other hand, HAVE been serving in the armed services, a (very) few even openly (though obviously the higher-ups haven’t heard about it). Some have served with distinction.

    Furthermore, we’ve already been hamstringing ourselves by dismissing people in KEY career fields (e.g. linguists who could have been providing essential intelligence for the War on Terrorism) just because the boys in question prefer other boys over girls.

    I have no idea what god thinks about homosexuals, and I guess I’ll leave that up to him/her/them. It’s a strange kind of arrogance that wants to take over god’s job and god’s judgments. Our job is to build a good and just society here and now. Some actions hurt other people, and we have to prohibit those. But this is supposed to be a free country, so people should be free to express themselves sexually however they want. And it doesn’t matter whether desire for people of the same sex is genetically determined or just a preference. It’s okay. Pardon me for getting a little hot under the collar, but this kind of homophobia just burns me.

    Actually, I think conservatives are afraid that after generations of calling someone a “pansy” or some other perjorative for not wanting to fight (or fighting badly), they might actually find out some gays CAN and WILL fight, and those who choose to do so will probably be even better soldiers than they can ever imagine.

    Why do the homosexuals feel the need to ware their sexuality on their sleeves?

    Petergirth asked “Why do the homosexuals feel the need to ware their sexuality on their sleeves?”

    I dunno maybe it’s because they’re trying to show the bigots that they are not afraid.

    But the other side of this is that a flamer is not likely to join the military for the same sorts of reasons that I’m not likely to. It’s not a lifestyle that appeals to me in the slightest.

    But if you have an otherwise “regular guy” to whom the rigors of military life is appealing and the desire to serve the nation is strong then this is probably someone who does not wear his sexuality on his sleeve.

    But he can be thrown out “just because”?

    Was that you mad lonecat? talk about mild mannered. I like that.

    God hates gay’s? let God deal with it.

    You hate gay’s? don’t date one.

    I don’t know if any of the men and women I served with were gay and I don’t care. I DO know that each and every one of them were there for me when I needed it.

    All you so called christians need to do what your leader said to do love your neighbor (that would be every one) as you love yourself. Don’t throw the “old testament” at me, that was “nailed to the cross” and done away with.

    BING!

    Bruce for the win!

    (Of course we all KNOW that with the name Bruce….)

    Scooter would have had SO MUCH FUN in the Spartan army!

    At the same time, neither gays, nor extremist fundamentalist “Christians”, need to wear it on their sleeves, or shove it in our faces.

    This country faces far more “sodomy” from the latter than former. All faiths have equal rights, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, Taoist, Wiccan, atheist, animist, or Christian- get over it!

    Hypocrisy is practiced by those who preach from one side of their mouths, and condemn from the other.

    Since a man is to a homosexual male the equivalent of what is a woman to a heterosexual man, women should have no problem with showering with men, in general.

    Man, I want to go back to high school …

    I’ve accepted the idea of homophilia and heterophilia but I cannot understand that transgenderism, or bisexuality are normal and genetically driven

    @petergrt: I dunno why homosexuals “wear their sexuality on their sleeves.”

    Maybe if you can answer why HETEROsexuals are so “in your face” about THEIR sexuality, you’d have your answer.
