The military is no place to push social engineering. Whether it is because a man who is a homosexual will respond in combat situations as straight
man would respond with a woman in the foxhole, or if it is because of the open showers reason, or whatever angle one would like to see it, the
military is not the place to change society.
The military, because it serves the function that it does, should be the last place anything that would interfere with unit morale should be set into
It's simple as it is, don't ask, don't tell.
Once again, because it can't be stressed enough, the military is not the place for social engineering.
As it is (or was, for many of us older folk), how many here serve(d) with homosexuals and knew it? I knew several. We served, trained, worked drank
and fought together regardless. Of course, not everyone knew as most had a problem with it, and back then it was not their desire to push an issue or
disturb unit morale.
