The difference is, there's nothing about homosexuality that should indicate an inability of that person to do the job. Age, height and weight requirements are there for specific reasons. Rules against homosexuality exist because some insecure rednecks think that some gay dude is going to hump their leg in the shower.

Like what? After all there Shaq would be ineligible to join because of the height restriction. You telling me he could not do the job? Or what about a 45 yr. old Tri-Athlete? You telling me he would be unable to perform a job in the military?

Shaq would be too big for most vehicles.

The 45 should be able to join.

So in that respect I concede you are right: there are other somewhat arbitrary requirements- which perhaps should also be done away with. Actually, on thinking about it, if we removed the age restriction we'd finally be able to call bullshit on Zolmaz' laughable bravado, since he'd have to enlist or admit to being a gutless windbag.

However, in a general sense- being too short or too tall or too fat or too old are problems. What problem does being gay pose?

Um, if you read my first post you would know that Vietnam has nothing to do with this Thread. Reread my first post and Stick with the topic man!!!!
When Flub speaks of someone else speaking about AVOIDING THE DRAFT and then says his argument had nothing to do with Vietnam, perhaps he is not on the same page as the person he is speaking with.

I don't know what problems being gay pose. But why alter the rules because of someone's lifestyle choice?
