Sigh. Gay this gay that. I will become very unpopular here but I have started saying things as I feel-even those that are un-PC. I am sick of hearing about gay people. If they can serve their country without their sexual orientation getting in they way of their duty I don't care. I don't care.

Klinger was not gay, he was a cross dresser trying to get kicked out for being gay, but he was not gay.

"Baron" Von Steuben, father of the US ARMY was a homosexual who was drummed out of the Prussian Army because of his affair with his 17 year old French "Aide". None of the other European Armies would have him. He showed up here with the boy and Washington chose to "Don't ask, don't tell"

Gays have been in the military since day 1, the present mentality is that if you are openly gay in the military you will be singled out, so then gays will hang out together. This will cause a separation of military personal. It's best to " don't ask, don't tell ". Just be discreet like everyone else.

Exactly, it's a double-standard.
