    Well, the bill Obama signed is now law that allows gays to serve openly in the Military.

    No more don't ask don't tell. But what he has really done is cause confusion in the ranks that could easily cost Marine lives.

    This is what can now happen!

    You know that Marines are trained to immediately obey orders.

    So imagine you're a Marine in a combat situation, the enemy is firing at you, and running toward your position.

    The guy next to you is openly gay.

    Then your Squad Leader yells out.........."Shoot those co**suckers!"

    Do you see the confusion here?

    I find that disgustingly not funny at all.

    How can such a small deviate segment of our population (having a consenting adult partner does NOT mean you aren't a sexual deviate) create the level of attention it took to get something like this passed? I spent 23 years on active duty and I'm sure there were homosexual service members, male and female, among our ranks. But I can't imagine an openly gay, effeminate, "I'm here and I'm queer" male homosexual creating anything but an absolute nightmare when it comes to unity and function of the organization. The first time it's flaunted, the first time an unwanted advance is made (and it will happen - young troops and alcohol - inevitable) there are going to be problems.

    I would have put this in the shooting section where it belongs but figured someone would kick on it.

    I don't care what someone else does in their private life the problem with homosexuals is that they want to be in your face and try to force you to approve of their lifestyle. Wonder why?

    I'm all for equal rights..but dead set against Special Rights.

    I really don't think the "flamers" or the very feminine gay males will enlist.

    I don't think the flamers would get through the first week of USMC boot camp. I also think there have been quite a few non-flamer gay men that have served in the MC.

    Not much new here, I'm sure the Marine Corp. will survive.

    Flamers might not have made it thru boot camp in the past but now with Presidential protection you would be in big trouble if you said or did anything at all to them.

    Not to worry, boot camp will become "gay friendly" soon enough.

    I dont find any of these comments humorous at all. People are people, rights are rights. EVERYONE is entiteld to the same rights in accordance with the written law. Get used to it. after all, isnt that what the armed forces are fighting to protect? BYG

    Beretta Young Gun - serving in the Armed Forces of this country is NOT a right, it is a privelege afforded to those individuals who are able to form cohesive, functional and fully qualified units. Open homosexuality has no place in any military organization.

    BYG you don't know of what you speak so it would be best to keep quiet.

    It used to be grounds for getting kicked out of the Corps.

    Just don't drop the soap.

    Dropping the soap is ok, just picking it up is where the problem begins.

    yakimaman- explain to me why you think homosexuals wouldnt be able to form
    cohesive, functional and fully qualified units? before world war 2 the airforce had the same way of thinking against african americans. Maybe the tuskegee air men were worthless. I just wouldnt tell them that to there face.

    BIGDON- I know exactly what im talking about. Being an openly gay man myself I know what its like to be discluded in certain activities nd discriminated against.

    In the gay culture world "flamers" or "fems" are an embarrassment to us. It for the most part is a put on act they use to pull attention to themselves. 95% of the gay community are perfectly "normal" acting people that you would never be able to tell were gay. I have also seen straight people acting out to draw attention to themselves.

    I just want to see equal right for EVERY LEGAL CITIZAN OF THE UNITED STATES! BYG
