@Iderlee The issue isn't quite what you think.
In the days of Don`t Ask Don`t Tell (and before then, when matters were worse), if a soldier was caught with gay pornography, or if it was discovered that back home he had a same-sex partner - he would automatically LOSE HIS JOB.
What other business can claim that? If a guy working at Wal-Mart marries his male roommate, he won`t get fired. If a Congressman comes out of the closet (it has happened before), he won`t be kicked out of office the next day.
What this assmuncher in the video doesn`t understand is that it`s not about "sex in the military". (He seems to believe that every man in uniform will be too busy having sex with each other to do their duty? Dumbass.) It`s about freedom for ALL persons on the job, no matter what they do in bed at home. The man who sent in the question should be able to receive letters from his boyfriend without fear of being fired. THAT`S the issue.

It sounds to me like he just said that he didn't care whether the guy was guy or straight. Sounds like he for don`t ask, don`t tell to me. Even if he won`t come out and say it.

You know, as far as the military goes.. While I strongly support gay rights in general, and really oppose any kind of bashing of any kind of sexual or religious orientation:
There really comes a time, and a place where what gender you prefer to mate with should be a non issue, simply put, no one should care.
Gay or straight, everyone is equal no matter what anyone tells them
