Were you ever in the military?
Funny story: Basic Training, Ft. Jackson SC, 1992. After morning PT is when we'd head back to the barracks to shit, shower, and shave before breakfast. After several weeks into our cycle a few guys in our platoon started noticing a certain guy that would loiter in the shower watching everyone. Well, one day this guy must have gotten a little too turned on as he popped wood, in the shower, with 9 other naked dudes. Guess what happened that night after the Drill Sergeant put us to bed. That poor fuck got the shit beat out of him.
I'm not against gays in the military or in general. I really hate people being classified into one group or the other. But, there needs to be more thought put into the logistics of this because of the very close quarters and very little privacy afforded to you in the military. Nothing like taking a shit while your buddy sits on the can across from you (with no doors, walls, anything between you). Not everyone can control themselves, like the dude I mentioned above, and those cases will always be met with a tough, sometimes brutal, peer punishment. Hell, if we are going ignore sexuality in the military we ought to ignore gender as well and have co-ed showers, bathrooms, and barracks. What's the difference? Do you think a female solider would be offended if some dude was in the shower staring at her with a hard-on? Talk about the best way to divide what is supposed to be a cohesive fighting force.
