Gays In The Military … and other places

by Chris | December 20th, 2010

I’m not sure why there is a lack of common sense when it come to the issue of gay’s in the military.

It’s not difficult … it’s not a moral issue … it’s not a religious issue …

It’s a common sense and logistical issue.

Up until recently we’ve been told that as a society we have been meandering about in intellectual darkness because of our religious hang-ups as a nation.  We’ve been so blinded by piety that we’ve refused to accept the fact that some people are simply born with a natural attraction to those of their same gender.

Okay … I disagree … however that is not the issue with gays in the military.

For the sake of argument I will concede that there are many people who are gay.  That their love is no less real to them as it is for a heterosexual person, that their dedication and devotion is no less and the quality of their relationships can be equally blissful and/or tragic.

The point is that it is easier to administrate a military with the basic assumption that men will be attracted to women and women will be attracted to men.  This is the case because as base as this argument seems, it is easier to segregate people by their body parts then it is by their hearts.

People who are likely to be attracted to each other romantically need to be segregated in many situations for many good reasons.  Among them are, ability to focus on task, mitigating fraternization, protecting potential victims of abuse and/or sex crimes, et al.  The issue is how do we do that in a homosexual environment?

If homosexuality is as natural as heterosexual then we need to apply the same logistical considerations to both … separate bathrooms, showers, locker rooms, housing, etc.  Each persons dignity must be protected.  If it makes sense for military men to shower in a separate facility then military women, then it rationally must make sense that gay military men should shower in facilities separate from non-gay military men for the exact same reasons.

These types of accommodations would dramatically increase spending and logistical considerations.

This is not a moral or religious argument, it is a rational argument.  If being homosexual is natural then it is a matter of dignity and must be applied throughout our culture.  For example whether it’s in our military or high school campuses it is irresponsible for us to allow homosexuals to shower with heterosexuals just as it would be for us to allow boys to shower with girls after their P.E. class.  This applies in every situation where genders are segregated.
