We've just had our annual Equal Opportunity lecture. I understand why we have to have EO training. I know there are problems with bullying etc The issue I have is every year the same issue is raised and there is never a satisfactory answer. The question is: You don't expect me to (or even allow me to) share a billet/shower/trench with a member of the opposite sex so why should I share a billet/shower/trench with a homosexual? The usual glib answer of 'don't worry fatty no self respecting homosexual is going to fancy you.' or even 'You don't imagine that a gay man wants to have sexual relations with every bloke he claps eyes on do you? Neither of these answers cut it. I'm very attractive to women, so I assume the same is true of gays. And anyway I'm not the issue its the young guy who is vunerable who has the potential problem. Oh and I do imagine that gay men want to shag anything thery can get thier hands on. I know I wanted to shag anything female that was vaugly attractive when I was younger and I know the same is true of all my friends. This aspect EO trg always worries me. I've had soldirs bring it up outside the EO forum. What the hell am I suppossed to say to them? I'd be quite happy to advocate the party line - but there does not seem to be one. The issue is brushed under the carpet and left to fester.
