you say "The last military poll taken from service members - in general they don't like having to shower with gays or sharing very close quarters, like a fox hole. Otherwise they don't care."
They shower with gays, share close quarters with gays, fox holes, etc., since the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, and all other squirmishes up til today. They share all those things with gays 24 hours, 7 days, 365!!
They just don't know it!
I wonder if we would be surprised if anyone could accurately tell us what percentage of military personnel are gay! I am inclined to believe it is more than any of us would believe.
You're kidding right? You tell me to watch the news but link to a study which starts:
"A group opposed to ending the ban on openly gay troops in the military has released a national survey that challenges"
I got a hint. Stop watching CNN and learn how to find unbiased information. Start by looking for information which would shoot you hypothesis to hell and work back. It is what scientists do all the time.
Do not look for the answer you seek and then read only that link. Another hint. If you find it in the Washington Times you might want to look a bit further.
“I think a lot of people are,” Lacy said. “In the field environment, you’re in very close proximity to one another. The fact that someone could be openly gay could exacerbate stress on teams and small units when you’re already at a high stress level.”
However, 71 percent of respondents said they would continue to serve if the policy was overturned."
The other link said that 71 percent of Americans polled wanted DADT overturned!!
Now our representatives in Washington are not listening to us cause they didn't pass that bill this week.
