I'm not and have not served my country, but me dad and both grandpas served. I always dreamed of marrying a pig farmer after my military police officer career, but neither dream came true.
Just a question for the guys who have been in the military or are still serving: Do you admit that gay people have been in the military from the beginning of time? Do you like the do not tell policy? If both of these two questions are answered with a yes, then what is going to happen if the gay men come out of the military closet? Do you think the gays will be free to jump on you without worry of punishment? What is the fear?
If you tell me there has never been gays in the military and that you do not support gays in the military I can understand you not wanting a policy that allows gays in the military, period. I believe my dad and grandpas did not believe that any gay man would survive the military. None of them are alive today, but even if they were I wonder if anyone could convince them to accept a gay man as fit for duty. They did not have sensitivity training back in the day.
I just do not understand what mind game you are playing with yourself by saying as long as they stay in the closet it is all good.
Now how do you feel about gay women - on a personal level and also serving in the military? I usually see that most men have no problem with the women and some like it a bit too much for my comfort level.
Just some things to think about.

That is my problem with the gay lobby... they are about forcing the rest of the world to accept their position (like it or not). They keep advancing their agenda one step at a time. They are already working on forcing the military to give benefits to the partners such as health care and base housing etc... it never stops...
Two words used extensively on this thread are "accept' and "gay".
If you look up the word '"accept", you will see that the meaning of the word used in the context of the posts here is to "approve". Tollerence maybe but approval maybe not ever. Could the use of the word "accept" be used deliberately to subcontiously argue for approval?
The term "gay" actually is a state of the mind. I wonder what one would think if I said I was a gay heterosexual man? It has always amused me that the term "gay" is supposed to refer to a homosexual man and the term "straight" was to refer to a heterosexual man. Would you think that one who is "straight" cannot be "gay"?
