I had Glenn Beck's show on very briefly this morning. I usually listen to the whole thing--well, as much of it as is left after I wake up, anyway--but today I think I listened to maybe 90 seconds. Why? Well, Joe Pags was guest hosting, and the subject was the repeal of DADT. In about a minute and a half he read off an e-mail or two about the horror that is openly homosexual soldiers showering with openly heterosexual soldiers of the same sex. He said it was a real issue.
This probably won't ease the minds of the homophobes, but it's the truth: if you were in the military and showered in an open bay with other people of the same sex, you showered with gay people.
The repeal of DADT doesn't mean heteros are suddenly going to be butt-raped. Guess what, y'all? You're just not irresistible. Joe Homo being able to have a picture of his boyfriend in his wallet doesn't mean he's going to start hitting on heterosexuals.
And as for the issue of the UCMJ...There are plenty of straight folks who violate the prohibition on sodomy left, right, and center. See, sodomy doesn't just mean buttsecks. It also means oral sex. So if you were in the military and your wife/girlfriend/friend to all sailors on the pier ever gave you a BJ, you committed a UCMJ violation. Repealing DADT only means the military will conveniently ignore it when gays violate that section, just like they do when heteros violate it. Even if the UCMJ prohibition really did apply only to what a lot of people think it applies to, it is 100% possible to be gayer than RuPaul and never cross that particular line, even if you're a dude.
Bottom line? Most military men I've met in my time won't give a damn. The few who do would be better served to quit thinking about gay sex and go back to thinking about their jobs. You can totally check out the porn once you're off a government computer.
