People are born gay. People are also born with different ethnic and genetic backgrounds. In the 1960's the many whites couldn't understand what the minority blacks were doing, making such a fuss over demanding equal this and equal that.
The response then was much the same as it is now; if you pay the same taxes and have to live under the same laws, then you should have the same rights and privileges regardless of the genetic circumstances of your birth. Of course there are exceptions, such as occur when folks are born sociopaths or psychopaths and present a danger to society at large.
The amount of time people have spent worrying about what grown, law-abiding, tax-paying, consenting adults who love each other do (instead of working on their own self-improvement and enjoyment) is creepy, counterproductive and beyond comprehension.
If you don't like gay people in the military, then you need to find another line of work. Just like some whites did who did not want to serve in an integrated military, gtfo and do something else with your sorry life.
