Oranges and Oranges

Some people are saying that allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military could pose a problem because of the possibility that a gay man could make an unwanted proposition toward a straight man.

How is this different than a straight man making an unwanted proposition toward a straight woman? Oh, wait: the straight man would be on the receiving end, making him think that everyone else would think (and, apparently, care) that he was gay.

So, let's state this argument the way it really is: Straight men don't want openly gay men serving in the military because other people might think the straight guy is gay and wound his fragile ego. Got it.
