And it happens all the time with straight people violating that order. Imagine if women and men were allowed to sleep in the same rooms together.
5. Training. I can only imagine the amount of sensitivity training that will occur. Will this affect readiness? What will have to be cut to teach this? If nothing, then there's no issue here.
Yup, you here about people getting in trouble for have straight sex while deployed, but you never see it on the news. In this case, however, you'll prolly hear about it in the news for about a week.
As far as the sensitivity training, they are already reinvinting the wheel with that crap. EO classes will focus more on the subject. Remember P.O.S.H.(Prevention Of Sexual Harassment) training? It's been reinvented to S.H.A.R.P. (Sexual Harassment Awareness Reporting Program) or something to that effect.
