People can get discharged for just being gay. @SuperSmash They dont have to be caught drating . And just because a guy is gay does not make him a f....ing horn dog that has to do every man he sees.

2 quick questions....You're in middle of 3 hour long fire fight with entrenched enemies. I pause the fight and tell you that I'll give you 100 more soldiers right now..the one catch is that they are gay. what do you say? The second your driving in a caravan down a dusty desert road. I tell you that in the next 30 miles you will encounter 2 large IED's. We could find out exactly but we would have to use a gay translator. what do you say?

I have nothing against gay's, my neighbors are a gay couple and they make the best chocolate pies!(lol) But some soldiers are not comfortable with that kind of thing, especially when its happening in the same bunker, shower, back seat of a hummer, mine fields, Helicoptors, etc...

@im smart, it doesn't have to be a euphemism. It is possible to love someone without having sex with them.

Lion, I can be in the same room with a woman and possibly even shower with one and not want to "frak" her, but put me in a group shower with 10 other women everyday for months at a time and something awkward is bound to happen. I'm pretty sure the women would be much more uncomfortable than me.

I'm all for equality but I saw a huge difference in the way gay guys acted in the military as opposed to the way gay guys act in the gym. I think if they allowed gays in the military that difference would cease to exist and
a) the amount of straight guys enlisting would drop dramatically
b) we'd start seeing a lot more gay hate crimes
c) the navy would turn into royal cribbean

Are you saying you can't sleep in the same room with, or shower near, a woman, without needing to frak her? Separate showers and dorms are a waste of resources, so if that applies to the men/women thing, how does it not apply to the gay/straight issue?

"He didn't get discharged for "loving" another man, he probably got discharged for "f***ing" another man."

its called a euphemism

SuperSmash I can see your point of view quite clearly. Although it would be a great thing to shower with women, it would in all practical sense be awkward. We

He didn't get discharged for "loving" another man, he probably got discharged for "f***ing" another man. I don't think it's the loving another man the military has a problem with.

This was a case of discrimination, but I doubt he got kicked out for sending love letters. However, I could be entirely wrong.

I have nothing against gays in the military, but I just worry about the logistics. Will there be separate bunks and showers? Do they shower with the women? Don't they need to respect the straight soldiers right to comfortable living quarters?

Put me in a shower with a bunch of naked women and no matter how professional and stoic I try to be, trust me, it would be awkward. I may just be trying to clean my balls and next thing you know the shower clears and I have a raging hard-on. Just saying...It would be awkward.

My personal beliefs are that war in a practical sense is obsolete, and serves no ultimate purpose.

And so, although I certainly approve of the message here, it doesn't resonate as much with me as it does with some of you guys.

... put another way... I look at this and I think "yes, war sucks and so do gay-haters", but that's about it.

Good for him; looks like he got the last word. Sad and very thought-provoking.

that's very sad :/ they should only be discharged for it if it becomes a distraction, and then that goes for everyone, not just homosexuals. so what if he was gay?

Look, I know that what happened to this man was an act of discrimination (and a rather backwards way for the army to set it's priorities. Then again, the whole war was pretty backwards)

But on the other hand, if I were conscripted during that time, I would've tried anything to get away from the madness!!

"...in no way was religion involved."

Maybe not so much for the United States (other than when we bow before the Almighty Dollar), but when the Muslims declare a Jihad, it's kind of tough to say that they aren't doing it in the name of religion.

I may let the oil thing slide, but in no way was religion involved. That's just a dumb thing to think, let alone to actually type, read again and then still decide to publish.

This is plain sad. This is once again the American fear of the taboo. So sad this man helped saved the freedom of those to discriminate against him. I hope they sleep well knowing the had the freedom to ruin a man's career after he saved theirs...
