    Are our nation's military academies any place for gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender cadets?

    This is what I think... http://gendentity.info/2010/03/26/trann … -dadt.aspx

    Why wouldn't they be?  Everyone has the right to serve their country if they chose; and, to do so without harassment of any kind for any reason.

    We are far too concerned other peoples' sexuality than we should be.  Let and let live!

    I can't say I would deny them the opportunity to service in the armed forces but I have to confess I had a bad experience in that some guy who I offer to help get him squared way with bedding when he first got to our duty station would not leave me alone, to the point I couldn't even sleep in my own bunk, I had to sleep outside to get away from, still he I believe has the right to serve in the armed forces.

    Just to be clear one night the only bunk available was mine and if anyone knows how small those bunks are- he want us to share my bunk-just to be clear.

    for span star, that was a one time thing, everybody is not like that, like saying all blondes are dumb, its a generalization. its not true.

    why not. we are the same as any other person, as long as we are american citizens nobody should give a dam. yeah soldiers have said oh i dont want people lookin at me in the showers and hittin on me an shit. guess what GAYS DONT GO AROUND HITTING ON STRAIGHTS. they might as a joke, or if there drunk, or after along time of knowing someone and thinking there is a connection. but the majority dont just randomly hit on whoever they think is hot. they have respect witch clearly some marines dont. and your gonna get checked out where ever you go.

    I have Gay and Lesbian friends who served in the forces and it was OK. I know some others who were the victims of anti-gay witch hunts. Hopefully the anti gay abuse will stop soon.

    Absolutely....diversity is needed everywhere including, and especially for, our officers in training.
