To me, this looks like a way for gays to get all the benefits of serving without taking any of the risks.
Problem is that gays are prone to HIV/AIDS.
Other troops will fear to be exposed to them in situations where hetero’s could be contaminated by homo bodily fluids (training, combat, injury treatment—not just consensual peanut butter packing in the showers).
Homo behavior is high risk behavior, that if it applied to say, guns, would be banned.

And as far as “a risk of being exposed to HIV on the front line” - that’s a straw man argument. They’re exposed to it now and don’t know about it until after the fact. The problem arises when you’re treating a flamer and not wanting to get his guts all over you for risk of infection.
