This isn't trying to be funny, or homophobic. This is a serious question concerning the army.

Do you think gays should be allowed in the army, and if not, why not? Serious and good reasons either way please.

My personal opinion is definitely not because only soldiers, who have no choice but to live side by side with them, should be able to give an answer yes or no. Fck the PC crowd with their opinions.

So junior rlc, your sounding like you protest too much. That makes you as gay as a gay thing. As RLC, you should get used to finding yourself in the blue oyster bar, late at night trying to close it on time. Wont happen because every one knows that as RLC, you will be a recruiter for the pink brigade of bum bandits. Fact of life, you knew that right? RLC is the equivilent of the US Steel workers union. They make the Village people look like 22 SAS in the middle of a bit of a firefight.

Dont shoot the messanger.

Yeah, right, funny maybe not, but homophobic...give me a break. Relax guys, no-one is going to make it compulsory and just because a gay guy or girl looks at you it don't mean they are getting ready to rip your clothes off. By the sound of you and that, clearly worldly wise, jr rlc oik, I think you would both probably be safe bending down to pick the soap up in the shower...except probably from each other.

This should not even be an issue, as long as everyone is prepared to keep their private lives private and not flaunt their sexuality, whether straight or gay. Unfortunately, it currently seems acceptable for the bean-flickers (OK, so it's not a PC term) to thrust their new found freedom under everyone's noses (so to speak) at every opportunity. But then I expect Shotgun would find that OK as I'm sure that he likes to watch 2 girls getting jiggy with it being a Real Man an' al....

Interesting observation Flash. Using the ol' reverse psychology debate, do you suppose that the proliferation of gays in the RLC accounts for the disproportionately high number of badge collectors and why the Pioneers keep trying to insist that they are so tough?

Jr RLC...presumably you feel equally threatened by having straight girls in the block too, as I am sure every one of 'em will be out to get inside your pants?

Yep


But they shouldn't be allowed :D

Hell, they let MDN in, why not gays?

Could care less if a man is gay or strqight. What counts is can you depend on him when the shit hits the fan?

I agree corporal, but what about the time when the shit isn't hitting the fan

IE, 99,5% of the time

And your point is MDN? What do you expect a gay soldier to be doing that a straight one wouldn't? Carving holes between shower cubicles perhaps? Compilling lists of little boys from the Staff & Social List? Or perhaps running out of hours flower arranging classes? Ooops, sorry, that last one was the CO's wife.

But seriously folks..... :roll:

simple, be tolerated by the rest of the camp community

Just because homosexuality has been made acceptable to the Army doesn't mean it is accepted by the troops.

If theft was accepted can you see that going down with the chaps.

Er...OK...but isn't the point that nothing has to be 'tolerated' if it is not made obvious to the body of the kirk? No one cares that you are wearing silk lingerie MDN! If we just got on with our own lives instead of worring about what the next man or woman was up to, we could, perhaps devote more time to the job in hand. Hmmm...perhaps that bit didn't quite come out right...oops, there I go again...

Bottom line is, we don't have to accept it, embrace it, partake in it, just live and let live. As long as you or your buddies are not being interferred with or threatened, where's the problem?

You are very lucky not to have experienced any animosity to any other person ever.... thats what I can assume.

A known child molester and peodophile moved in 200 metres from my house.. he doesn't affect me, nor does he interfere with my daily life

Do I live and let live?

Not for one minute suggesting that marmite miners are all peodophiles just showing a comparison to your statement.

Why should the majority bow to the minority?
 
#15
Apples and Oranges me old chum. The child molester would clearly be a convicted criminal and you would be correct to be cautious (although I suppose having passed through our exemplary prison system, he will, no doubt be a reformed character and present no threat to the neighbourhood, ahem!). As far as I am aware, homosexuality is no longer a criminal offence. Do you feel threatened there MDN? :wink:
 
#16
Not at all threatened, because I dont tolerate them

Gas the snappers then the assylum seekers and finally the jocks :D

There you go...now THAT'S more like it!

Why don't we have men and women in the same block or same four man room, sharing showers and toilets? I don't suppose it's becaue we expect the men to start ripping the womens clothes off, but, women have the right to their privacy from those of a different sexuality. It seems strange that hetero men don't have the same courtesy afforded to them.

Women may feel uncomfortable in the presence of men in that environment, so might hetero men be uncomfortable in the presence of homos, but they won't be given a choice will they? My point is that they SHOULD be given that choice.

So it's good, wholesome and everybody should like it because it isn't illegal?

The fact that some people may be uncomfortable LIVING in close proximity to a homosexual, i.e. in the next bed, and doing everything from eating and using ablutions with a homosexual, has no bearing on this?

As a mere stab I dont have the experince of living long term in a block
,But , surley any good soldier who is gay will have learned to blend in
and play the grey man the army is not a good enviorment for those who stand out.Gays have always served as a tax payer I can think of better
things for rmp to do than snoop through soldiers mail to find out if they
poufs .If they gay but can hack it and not piss the blokes off fine if they
expect to be welcomed with a pink parade they gonna be in for big disapontment and wont hang around long enough to upset anyone
