Do you care if you shower with some one of the LGBT community? I'm talking about in armed forces.
Honestly I have to ask because of this ''Should the U.S. Military allow men and woman to take showers together?'' I underst and how some straights may feel but at the end of the day if you showered in schools you showered with one of us. Your close relative or friend may be one of us. I'ma happy bisexual women. problem? It does'nt matter if you gotta problem.
Throughout history the LGBT community have been protecting this country even in silence. Just because some want us to stay that way...It don't mean we will.
I wouldn't care. My same-sex wife might care that I'd be showering with someone else that isn't her - but I do know what you mean.
I think that people are getting overly sensitive, and overly stereotypical with this. Just being gay does NOT mean that I am going to jump every woman I meet. (You being straight women with issues about showering with gay women - please also change the written genders for gay men/straight men)
Yes, so some of you are hot. So? So's my wife...and I'm quite happy with her. I'm as likely to perve at you, as you are at some hot guy. Now, think about that - does that say more about you than me? I'm not like to perve, or jump anyone - if you are...well... (smile).
I had a flatmate who after I came out was very odd. Now, I didn't shower with my flatmates - but apparently my rubbing my feet together (a symptom of my RLS mind you..) is me coming on to her. Just because most men would have had a go with her (or at least she thought so) does not mean I would....in fact, I would never...ergh. It was egotistical, and made her look stupid.
In the military - which I am not - I figure that a shower is a shower - you jump in, get clean, get out. If you want to er...do other things in the shower - with yourself, or another - you wait until you are alone. Or you take it to your room. Men and women in the same shower - same thing.
Sigh - we are all human. We all need a shower once in a while (er..hopefully more often than that!). It would be considered water conservation if we all did it at once!.
I would not care. And to be honest, the gang showers have been going away for some time in the military. Even in the most remote outposts of western Iraq, we had individual shower stalls set up in the shower tents. The only places where I ever saw gang showers were in the gyms on the domestic military posts. Heterosexual men have had to share showers with homosexual men in civilian gyms for years and I have not heard anyone complaining about that.
Amusing question. Human beings are all the same when naked. I can not imagine getting aroused while showering with another male, or another female when the sole purpose of showering is to cleanse your body. Group showering in a military setting is not a sexual venue, and those who find viewing another person's naked body wrong, has a problem with their own perceptions.
We put such importance on the sex lives of others and being ashamed of our nakedness, it is quite disturbing to me. There is no sin or shame in being naked, or in showering, so why does the combination suddenly become a social issue?
I don't think that gay people do anything different in their showers than straight people do - or do they?
D.William - nope, not that I'm aware of, do we do anything different in the shower to straight people. Then again, what do straight people do in the shower?? Not being one, I can't be sure! If it's get one's body clean - then, nope no different!
Of course they do. Gay people scrub counter-clockwise, while straight people scrub clockwise.
