It’s a big deal because Gay is a political movement. It isn’t a gender choice. In fact, it’s a psychological disorder and at the very least a reproductive disorder.
There was a push to find a genetic cause for homosexuality, but that got hammered because if they found out it was genetic, then science would look for a cure.
That is NO GOOD politically. Homosexuals are mightily struggling to have Gay = Black or Gay = Female. Either one gives them perpetual minority status. If Gay were a sickness, then you have the Americans with Disabilities Act and not much else.
We should all give a crap, because Gay isn’t victimless. Right now the military is being asked to accommodate homosexuality in the same way that a business is asked to accommodate people in wheelchairs. If you are colorblind, you can’t serve in the USCG or the Navy (not sure about the others, but I think you can’t serve there either).
Gay would be in the same class as colorblind. Can’t bunk with straights, can’t have your own birthing bay, can’t bunk with women. Can’t serve in the military.
Serve in the CIA? Absolutely. If there was EVER a place that homosexuals could serve the national interest it’s in the espionage game. They make the FINEST spies. Espionage is the toughest game in town, and it deals in the very basest of motivations. Being gay gives you a capability being straight can’t give you.
We’re pretty open and accepting about homosexuality here, but this isn’t true in Central Europe, Russia, the ME, Africa, etc. Turn a high level foreign contact with a homosexual liason and their kingdom and all their secrets are yours for the asking.
