    Some interesting stats:

    67% believe Gender has little bearing on a service's member ability to perform their duties.

    82% believe Race or Ethnicity have little bearing on a service's member ability to perform their duties.

    60% believe being Gay or Lesbian have little bearing on a service's member ability to perform their duties. 66% 35 and under agreed with this statement, 57% of those 35 and over.

    73% are comfortable in the presence of Gays and Lesbians. This is true for 80% of those 35 and under, while true for 69% of those over 35.

    73% would find it acceptable to serve with openly gay or lesbian people in the Military.

    And interesting considering some other things:

    45% Republican, 25% Independent, 20% Democratic for those that are known.

    And lastly:

    In your most recent unit, were there people you think are gay or lesbian but don't know for sure?

    58% said yes, and 19% were unsure.

    This is such a non issue. Sheep should worry about more important things like American Idol.

    Oh for fuck sake they already serve, honorable.

    Why are we arguing over whether reality is reality?
