But they already do

The religious right bigots at the Family Research Council are back to freaking out over DADT again:

Forcing soldiers to cohabit with people who view them as sexual objects would inevitably lead to increased sexual tension, sexual harassment, and even sexual assault. America’s military exists to fight and win wars –not to engage in radical social engineering.

Forcing gays and straight to cohabit in the military? They already are, and have been since the beginning of time. The DADT policy doesn’t kick you out for being gay – there are lots of gays in the military, and the policy says that’s fine – DADT says you can’t TELL anyone you’re gay. So the issue isn’t sharing bunks, showers, bathrooms or anything else with people who are gay. They already are. Why the media lets the bigots get away with these most basic of lies…
