Barney Frank: Not Allowing Gays and Straights to Shower Together is ‘Discrimination’

Not allowing gay military personnel to shower with straight military peronnel would be “discrimination.” That’s the position of Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA), an openly gay member of Congress who is a proponent of banishing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Frank told that the idea that people might be concerned over gays and straights showering together, and the possible disruption it could case, is a “silly issue”:
“To accept the principle that homosexuals can’t shower with other people is a degree of discrimination that goes far beyond this. We don’t get ourselves dry cleaned. We tend to take showers when we go to the gym; when we play sports,” Frank said. Oh, great. That should make the majority of our military a little queasy. Would you feel comfortable showering with an outwardly gay person? The next thing the liberals will want to do is let women walk around "topless" to fight "crime" like in "Canada". Just like one of our liberal commenter's said. And we can't discriminate against women either so let's have one big nude fest in the military showers. All this while someone is trying to kill you. Do you think this liberalization of our military is distracting to them? Is it worth the risks so 3% of the population gets "social justice"? On top of all this our military got the lowest increase in pay this year. I'd like you to ask the next soldier you see if the military is at an all time low morality. I've yet to not get an ear full on that question. Don't take my word for it just ask a soldier when you see one.
