Personally I would prefer that guy watching my ass is not actually watching my ass.

On the other hand...Someone that's gay may not let anything happen to me if he's sweet for me.  :wink:

It can affect morale. Most strait men ARE NOT flattered when approached by gay men - many get down right hostile. Strait boys just out of high school with raging testosterone are put through military brainwashing and trained to kill without remorse. Take any dislike directed at homosexuals in the civilian world and multiply it by 100. Now get some gay guy trying to pick up on strait soldiers and what do you have? In the navy (for instance), gay men inadvertently 'fall overboard' when out at sea.

There was this dude that was found to be gay in the unit I served in prior to deployment. Every body found out about it. His commander was going to let him stay but the soldier told his commander that he was already horribly picked on and that he might not be very stable in iraq if every one kept making fun of him. So he was discharged. We were thinking he made up the being gay thing to get out but we don't know.
In the military, they want tight-knit groups of people, the gay person might be seen as an outsider because of other people's prejudices. People may feel uncomfortable living with, undressing, or showering with a gay man.
Progeopax hit it on the nail, people's prejudices.

Do you honestly think gay men hit on straight men.

I call bullshit. I'm gay and no one touches that with a 20 foot pole. Gay men meet other gay men within the spectrum of the gay community. Just a bullshit stereotype that homosexuals are sex fiends.

Same sort of mentality as a century or so ago with black people. "I don't want a black person serving in my unit!" "Why not?" "...He's black!"

Really?  So, you've been hitting on straight guys then?

I'm sorry...you left yourself open for that one.
