Should DOD continue its "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy or should DOD adopt a stronger policy that prohibits homosexuals from serving in the U.S. military?

TOPIC/HISTORY: The Supreme Court recently decided that all adults, regardless of sexual orientation, are entitled to a right of privacy when participating in a consentual act of sex. The United States military is gravely concerned about this ruling. For many decades the United States military enforced a policy of separation of sexes and prohibition of homosexuality.

MEASURING HETEROSEXUAL ACTIVITY
AMONG TROOPS

Heterosexual activity among troops can always be measured by the number of pregnancies that occur. The Clinton Administration briefly experimented with co-ed sexual cohabitation and training. However, due to the sharply increased number of pregnancies and fraternal/administrative complications evolving from heterosexual relationships/proximity the Department of Defense has since re-instituted separate but equal training and habitat environments for military males and females. During the first Gulf War approximately 25% (twenty-five percent) of the females transported to the Gulf Theater by naval vessel became impregnated. During the recent war in Iraq approximately 11% of the women involved in that operation became pregnant. For this and other reasons the Dept of Defense is now conducting a major reassessment of female involvement in hostile overseas missions.

MEASURING HOMOSEXUAL ACTIVITY AMONG TROOPS

Because homosexual relationships cannot produce pregnancies, homosexual relationships can only be measured by instances of reported morale aberrations due to favoritism expressed toward, or rejection received from, intended sexual targets.

PRIVACY TO EXPRESS OR ENGAGE
IN SEXUAL ACTIVITY IS THE PRIMARY FACTOR
DETERMINED BY THE SUPREME COURT

As anyone who served in the military well knows, there is no privacy in any military environment. Personal privacy in non-combat conditions is rare; privacy in combat conditions is all but non-existent. Understandably, the Department of Defense is very concerned about maintaining each serviceperson's limited privacy when performing biological and self-maintenance functions such as cleansing, waste removal, etc. However, because homosexuals seek and achieve sexual arousal and stimulation in closed environments such as showers and restrooms where heterosexual servicepersons reasonably expect privacy, the Department of Defense is understandably concerned that the recent Supreme Court decision will motivate or encourage homosexuals serving in the military to express or demonstrate their sexual orientation in ways and in quarters that will seriously damage the morale of heterosexual servicemembers.
