From an editorial in Navy Times about the repeal of DADT:

…. There will be challenges. About 24 percent of troops say they’d quit or at least consider quitting the service if repeal happens. Still, with leaders seemingly committed, it’s time to figure out how to make this work with minimal disruption.

That means focusing on one crucial consideration — privacy.

Personal privacy has never been a top military concern. In fact, privacy deprivation is among the primary tools used to break down new recruits and build them back up as a fighting unit.

Yet privacy — not of the one, but of the many — is the key to eliminating the most immediate problems with integrating open gays into the service.

No one, gay or straight, should have to feel sexually threatened by anyone else in uniform. That means giving troops a reasonable expectation that they can shower and change clothes without feeling like they are being ogled.
