assume that if there is a gay person in the room, they gay person will be attracted to the straight person?
Sure, it's possible, but in all this debate over who might be uncomfortable in the military - isn't it far more likely that it's going to be a straight woman seducing the married straight men in the mess tent than a gay man is going to get a straight man to completely change his sexuality during 2 minutes in the shower with 30 other guys? If someone is going to oogle your husband, isn't it far more likely to happen while he's outside sweating for hours, than in a dark and steamy room, again, for 2 minutes?
And if someone is going to risk all the homophobes around them beating them to a bloody pulp by admitting to being gay, isn't it more likely they are doing that so they can openly date the person they are ALREADY in a relationship with?
Ego is the only thing I can think of. As far as being comfortable at work what if someone is uncomfortable around people of other ethnicity's or religions? It's impossible to pander to everyones comfort and get the job done so those who are uncomfortable need to suck it up and do their job.

I don't understand it either! It drives me crazy! I think that everyone should be allowed to be who they are and love who they want and it if someone else if uncomfortable then that's THEIR problem....they shouldn't be uncomfortable (as long as the very clear line is not crossed!) If people weren't so homophobic there wouldn't be an issue. If a women hit on me I would say "sorry not interested but, thanks anyway" and that would be the end of it.
