Another HOMO thread?
Gross.
Besides, what kind of a man would send a homo or a woman out to protect him from an enemy?

A bunch of soft bellied wussies.

Personally, I think that admission into the military should be based solely on one's capability to carry out the military's objectives, be you man, woman, straight, gay, or anything else.

Exactly my point.

US soldiers have fought alongside openly gay British soldiers, and have had no problems with them whatsoever. They are enlisted simply on their ability to carry out their duties.

If each of us is unique, then none of us could ever fully conform to any stereotype.

I have met some exceptionally masculine homosexuals in my time. I'm sorry, but that comment about them all basically being a bunch of cowards is BS.

There are different types of murder too. There are those which are pre-meditated. There are those that are crimes of passion, spur of the moment. Both of those types of murderer aren't the same, so how can you stereotype them?

Maybe the next poll should be: Should we continue to allow homos to post polls?

Well i think they should because i read somewhere that Blacks were not allowed to serve that they only served as cooks and janitors,and Weren't Alexander the great,Julius ceaser both gay? so i think they should do like they did to the Japanese to put them in the 442nd to allow them to prove themselves.

I used to be in the Army. When you are a soldier, you rely upon your platoon (your fellow soldiers) for everything. You have each other's lives in your hands. The last thing you need in a platoon is something which can interfere with the teamwork which is required to stay alive and to get the job done. You learn to trust your platoon- the platoon leader, the platoon sergeant, and the rest of your fellow soldiers. I wouldn't have trusted a homosexual or even a woman for that matter. I was and still am against women being soldiers in the military as well.
