When things change not everything changes for the better. Just look at the woman's movement. Did good things happen with that? Yes. But a LOT of bad things also came on the heels of that liberalization of women.
Don't get me wrong, I do not think homosexuals should be looked down on, nor should they be discharged just because they are gay, but if they are running around wearing their sexual orientation on their arm then yes, they should be discharged in my opinion.
And I am firmly standing with my opinion I don't think straight men and women should be forced to bunk/shower/whatever with "open" homosexuals.

I certainly know what the ex CSM of 6 RAR thought of it, and from what I am told, his views are also in accordance with many if not most of his colleagues. It was a political decision that was put in place by the Government, not for the betterment of the service, but for "votes", a truly inspirational way to formulate policy for our country's Defence forces.

As third person I would strongly suggest to get over it- it's just a development which has already ended in europe and it won't stop in America. So get it over with- give them their rights and concentrate on real issues- because every normal person doesn't give a damn about the secual behaviour of other people wether it is fetish, gay stuff or ... well I don't want to add anymore examples you know what I mean- basically it's not the problem of others with whom you have intercourse, Europe got that and you will too. And seriously whoever wants to shout out he's gay all the time may do that and will shortly see what happens...

Perhaps normal people don't give a damn,... but in 99.99% of those cases, they are not being forced by circumstances beyond their control to live in close proximity with these weirdos.

Right now the US Military has more on it's plate than a fat chick at an all you can eat buffet, the attempt to push this thru at this time is ill concieved and ill timed. We are fighting two wars we need to concentrate on that, not on social issues for a special interest group that sees this as an easy route to further a broader agenda outside the military.
Really I don't know how many different ways I can state that.

Well I have to serve with some and it really doesn't affect me at all and I don't know who is gay though they are 'openly' gay but they have no big sign on their forehead. And since you have a lot more experience in life than me you should know that many people are 'weirdos' as you call them.
Look at me I'm defending gay people ^^ who'd ever thought that?
Seriously I don't like the idea that there is a villa near our Military Campus with a rainbow flag in front of it and gay Officers having 'meetings' in it but it's just the way the world is today... to fight against it would mean to end your career and to get lost in a dark area of society (at least in Germany)- so you either accept modern changes or you don't- that's why I will defenitely emigrate at some point of my life.
America is still more religiouse and conservative on it's Island but after Obama already said that he'll change the way gay people are treated in the military that will happen at some point- after all he got a blanko Nobel Peace Price, he must now do something for it ^^

Senos: "...That is no indication whatsoever that this policy enjoys a high degree of acceptance."
I wasn't aware that a professional army acted on the whim of the popular opinion.
As we say in the South: "tough titty".
Across my career, Iv'e seen a whole lot of justification why blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and women are not equal in the service. It has always proven to be b******t.
My first tank crew was a white hill billy from Tennessee, a urban black kid from Detroit, and a Western Mexican kid who couldn't read worth ****. We kicked ass and qualified Expert.
That is what leadership does. Unless you feel that in your neck of the woods you can't produce such results.
I think you will find Senos that your butt never attracted a following.

We also managed to give several members iof the USN good cause to remember our nights out.
I've been there and done all of that crap.
