    “However, another suggestion floated is that out gay soldiers could serve, but with separate sleeping and washing quarters.” You might want to also have them ride in the back of the bus. One step forward two giant steps back! Talk about discrimination and humiliation!!

  2. Heres another ‘humane’ suggestion:

    Why not just make gay troops wear little pink triangles so they can be identified easier?

    Do they not listen to themselves!? I wonder what would happen if they suggested that black troops had separate washing and sleeping areas, huh?

  3. ‘humane’ solution!!!!!!

    Just take this blue pill and you wont feel a thing!!!!!!!!

    The solution these homophobes are offering are just as bad as as the statement above.

    I am left totally speechless

    America is not the land of the free for the LGBT

  4. so it will switch from a ban on people who are gay serving, to segregation of people who are gay.

    ffs! get over it! ….damn religious zealots

  5. Is there no end to the insulting condescension of these people? Mr President – scrap DADT now! It is your constitutional right and duty as commander in chief.

  6. Y’know, I wonder if ‘they’ ever look at these sites to see how large a protest is. The more who comment on this and other discrimation stories the better.

    Humane solution my ass.
    The US army ban gay soldiers then moan that they don’t have enough soldiers.
    Kind of like how the NHS ban gays from donating blood then moan about blood stocks being low.

    so for all that talk from Obama in the state of the Union address (I think it was) to Congress, his administration could well introduce apartheid into the US military. Should its NATO allies allow their soldiers to be exposed to this sort of bigotry?

  9. Pathetic

  10. This is pathetic. As long as this “them and us” attitude exsists things will never improve.

    What a sad why to respect to the people who serve and protect their country.

  11. Astounding. I still can’t believe this is being suggested. Have these people lost all objectivity? Can’t they see how their words sound to others? Even the sue of the word ‘humane’ is somehow sickening.

  12. how about just letting soldiers serve and not caring about the sexuality? hows about judging soldiers on how they perform as soldiers? how about that unique idea?

  13. Because many ‘religious’ people are totally obsessed by sex it seems, Chester….

  14. When I read the headline, I was immediately reminded of the “Final solution”. Seems many posters on here have a similar sense. Apartheid is NOT a solution, and NOT humane.
