    Wow, this is shocking, so much for LGBT rights in the military. Despite this, I still believe they should repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, what are your thoughts on this?

    don't post entire articles and always link them. it'd be nice if you read the rules.- del

    And he is basing this opinion on what evidence? His own bigotry it would seem considering...

    A majority of active-duty and reserve service members surveyed by the Defense Department would not object to serving and living alongside openly gay troops, according to multiple people familiar with the findings.

    Most troops wouldn't oppose serving with gays

    That ought to pull the rug out from under "It's not the policy" McCain...

    Screw them. whiney asses.
    Uncomfortable? What do the jackwagons expect? It is the Marines. It is not supposed to be comfiortable. War is never comfortable for the ground pounders. The only comfort is found in the ranks of those sending Marines to war and death.

    does this mean the other 5% are gay? Or just reasonable people secure in their own sexuality?

    Let the Military decide for themselves. They put their lives at risk for us, the least we can do is defend their right to decide when, how or if DADT is canned.

    Being tough has nothing to do with the need to watch your 6 in a friendly environment.

    The issue here is about quarters. We separate the sexes to prevent fraternization.

    Your solution to a very real problem would be?

    No normal Marine want's to be in a combat situation and hear a gay marine say to him, "don't worry, I got your back". :eek:

    I don't get the problem here. Whats so umcomfortable about being in the same room with someone who is gay. Are they afraid they are gonna get raped or something? If they are incapable of doing their job thats one thing but all things the same but they happen to be gay then I don't see the problem.

    The military knows what will and will not work for the military. Let them decide.
