I watched a documentary the other day where two 19 yr olds (one female & one male) came to enlist for the army,they had to answer yes or no to the question if they were gay.They did and then they were refused to be able to enlist.What I dont get is our soldiers are loosing lives daily and it has been stated that we need more soldiers,but yet the military is willing to risk lives due to not having enough military support than to suck it up and let someone who is gay enlist and fight for their country. What does who these peole sleep with have to do with their ability to fight for this country.Answer Question

WOW! points up.. Ok so I asked this to a man in my family, he said well they can't let gays in because they will be flirting the whole time and if they had sex could be spreading diseases. Here's my thoughts. Could a man and woman NOT do the SAME thing? just because they are gay does that they cant take something seriously? I honestly don't understand why gays have rights (or lack of) any different than ours. and how gays bother people.. I really don't understand that its not like YOU have to be gay because you know a gay. In my opinion its like abortion, just because its legal doesn't mean you HAVE to get one. Why should one group be able to decide for EVERYONE as a whole? Aren't we all suppose to be different? With different beliefs? Or we would all be a bunch of robots walking around.. Does this make sense?

I can understand why other soldiers may not want to have to serve next to someone who's gay. They're probably worried that if they're wounded, and the gay person possibly has AIDS, they wouldn't want to have to come into contact with their blood. Before anyone goes off, I KNOW it's not just gay people who get AIDS, but the likelihood of someone being gay having it is greater.
