When I was in I worked with an elderly gay man... that worked the crypto vault.. and for 3 years I dealt with him flirting and had to just accept it as he was much higher ranking... so... while I don't have any problems with homosexuals at all (my girl is a hairstylist... so I'm pretty much surrounded on all sides most of the time)

I can see where the problem is, I know most gay people aren't as open... and I don't feel like that they should be allowed to be in the workplace.

I had to deal with that old pervert flirting and everyone talking shit about it for three years knowing if I said anything out of line, I'd be fucked, figuratively of course.

So while I agree partially on the whole gay rights deal, I don't agree that they should be allowed to flaunt that shit the same way I wouldn't be allowed to perv out on the female members I served with, not that I'd ever want to ( those who were in know. )

Flame On.

Hi mates! I'm from Russia and we are not so "tolerant" here. Nevertheless, in fact, most people have no problems with homosexuals as long as they keep their homosexuality "at home and under blanket". Social conditions make it possible, because all men have a private space. Military base is not like cozy apartments, there is no personal shower.
So, what do you think about common shower for men an women? Like "Starship troopers" movie

Blind - sexual harrassment is sexual harrassment ... Even if it's male to male or female to female. Sorry you had an experience like that.. But people like that are the exception and not the rule. And muki, that's horrible your dad would even think something like that. You love your children unconditionally

I'm with you on that one. getting surgery to change sexes is just mentally ill. I don't have any trouble saying that. a large percentage of the people that get it end up getting changed back in a few years. It's just plain mental illness. you don't get to choose your sex.

Trust this is even a debate in the gay community. There is a lot of gays and lesbians who similarly have trouble accepting transgendered folks.

I don't. It's their decision, their body. I am very libertarian when it comes to issues of society/government telling you what to do with your own body

Honestly I dont care what transgendered people do with themselves. it doesn't affect me personally so they can do whatever they want to themselves as long as it makes them happy :/

even though I do find it really weird, I don't think I have the right to stop them and neither does anyone else, really

i would imagine they feel that getting that surgery is fixing their illness. don't be so quick to judge. and why do you care anyway?

I wouldn't pretend to understand why they'd do what they do.. but like I said, it's their body. If it makes em happy go for it. personally.. i like my twig and berries too much.

Gay people are the same as everyone else, there are assholes and jerks just as there are good people. Texan had to be trolling as it was perfect that a comment like that would come from a redneck. Flick said it perfectly, I wouldn't give a fuck who you liked to screw in your spare time as long as you're a standup person.

I think it'd be great to be gay in the military, there's so much boredom and pent up sexual urges at times it would be nice to just lean over to my cot mate and blow him.
