This may actually HELP recruitment, because if a straight male is foolish to have reservations about bunking or showering with a gay male, then women are foolish to have reservations about bunking and showering with males. So we can save billions by simply building nothing but unisex barracks and shower facilities.
BTW Das, don't try to guess what gay men, effeminate or not, will do. (You're not a male and neither one of us is gay.) I suspect that one look at a platoon of 2/8 hardbodies running the Verona Loop in formation could cause swooning and racing off to the recruiter. "In Living Color's" Men on Film comes to mind....
(See? Now THAT was intentional, to tick off that idiot who earlier accused me of thinking all gays are effeminate...)
