I never thought of it in this way, but this is the perfect response to someone who thinks gays should not be allowed to serve in the army, from Sullivan’s site (italics mine):

The best asset of the army is its spirit – of comradeship, brotherhood, and unity. It is a spirit which overrules, or at least ought to overrule, all the taxonomies of civilian life: race, politics, class, region, and even, one might hope, sexuality. But if you actually believe our men and women in uniform can stand up to the most maniacal, barbaric, ruthless, and vile killers in the world, and still be flustered by – gasp – a gay person, then you have officially exiled yourself from the frontier of reason.
