Ok, so you have barraks and bathroom facilities on deployments for men and women. You do this for a REASON, the women do not want to be ogled by men when they are naked in the shower or peeing or even just changing grubby clothes. SO, if you make this change openly, does the gov't then need to step up and require seperate sleeping/bathing quarters for the gays? This isn't a hate question. and I am not nieve enough to think that there arent already gays there (duh) but what is the difference between a woman not being comfortable with someone who is turned on by women seeing them naked and a Man being unconfortable in the same situation? It doesn't make the man homophobic any more than it makes a woman straitaphobic?! What do you think about this logistical side of changing things?Answer Question

sorry...hit too soon.....in answer to the op....I think this could be a problem. I dont care if they are gay or not in the military and I dont think they should be FIRED for being gay, but the barracks and the shower could be an issue. I think, in the end, it would probably bother women less, but if it bothered even one why is a gay persons comfort more important then a straight persons. You know. I think separate or at least well sectioned off showers would probably be a need.

Ok Anon...why dont we be ridiculous. Being uncomfortable being NAKED in front of someone who may or may not see you sexually and drinking out of the same water fountain or two completely diff things. Arguments like that don'thelp anyone and only make you look silly and lack credibility.
