Can the military be as effective with openly Gay soldiers? The military has sent a survey to all their personal asking whether they will okay with Gay soldiers. Will it affect their morale? Will affect their ability to serve? Does it matter to the enemy they are sworn to kill? Why isn't don't ask dont tell still the best policy?

Honestly, I think overall openly gay soldiers would have no effect on the military. How is it going to make anyone fight worse for the job they have signed up to do if they are fighting along people whom they know are gay? It's not at all. I think there are a lot more pressing matters to soldiers whenever they are in the line of duty than whether or not the person that has their back is attracted to men or women. It's a complete non-issue.

I agree when your getting shot at and looking for help it should it should be whomever has the same uniform on is who Im looking to help. However people have strange psychologies. For example during world war 2 there were American soldiers who got shot and were taken to black American doctors and instead of being treated by the doctors requested to be let die instead of having a black doctor touch them. Racism and bigotry have strange psychology and this is what the army must figure out.
