And don't forget, this is an important part of the base of today's Republican Party. They're lunatics.

Rates of sexual assault among people of the same gender would skyrocket if gays are allowed in the military, according to Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the antigay Family Research Council.

I don't believe that. I am curious to see how commands handle sexual harassment complaints by straight soldiers against the gay ones. That'll be interesting.

The sad parts are:

1) Somebody wrote this.
2) Somebody had to proofread it.
3) Somebody had to approve its release
4) Somebody will be defending this to people who ask WTF...

Some things should be left as thoughts.

I'm not anti-gay. I am however, in favor of preserving our military's readiness.
Gays and their activists don't care about that. They just want to stir the pot and conduct their little social experiment. Nobama doesn't even care about gays, he's doing this so he can wrap up their vote.
Some things are just better left as they are. What do you know about the military anyway? I mean, besides what nancy pelosi told you?

I have no ill feelings towards gays but I think this will deter people from joining the military. Barracks life
such as the Airforce and some navy units would be ok. However life aboard ship and submarines might be a little different

For gods sake ---- there are gays serving in all branches of our military! The only difference would be that they would not be discharged if they were openly gay (in the same way straight soldiers are openly hetero).
There have always been and there will always be gay men and women serving in our military.

And by the way --- Pelosi is whatever the female equivalent of a doucheb*g is. I know about the military from my husband, his sister, his half sisters dh, my father and a hell of a lot of my neighbors. None are shocked by the idea of gays in the military.

The report is based on actual sexual assault reports available from the Pentagon. According the the article, which cites factual reports and percentages, the author is concerned that if homosexuals in the military are allowed to be open about their preference 1) there will be an increase in homosexual assault (which accounted for 8.2% of the reported cases in 2009) and 2) homosexuals may become a "protected class" within the military.

I would bet the farm that few, if any, of those sexual assaults committed by gays were on other gays. Otherwise, why the need for assault? Just go somewhere and do it in private. I'm not saying that the author's fears are well founded--only that it seems to be a well-researched article based on actual facts.

gay ppl are already serving in all branches of the military. Let them serve proudly and without fear. Ppl in the military by their very nature are mentally and physically stronger and should be able to resist any sexual advances just as straight men are not raping women who serve.
