Sorry,... I do care.
"keep that shit out of the workplace" sounds like you have an opinion too, whether you want to admit it or not.
And you and I both know that, especially in the military,... "that shit" doesn't stay "out of the workplace". That's the problem.
How about farm animals? Domestic animals?
Don't laugh... this may be closer to "acceptable" than you think.
And... "age discrimination" is a mantra of the NAMBLA crowd.
How about 13 year old Thai hookers?
How about one of your friend's wives (but her husband doesn't know it)? Hey, she's got rights too. She's a "consenting adult", right? I've seen that scenario too many times, and it never turned out well. And it definitely affected the workplace. Especially when everyone involved was in the squadron.
Or how about if Col X is banging SrA Y,... but she's (or he's) not in his (or her) chain of command?
There is a standard.
There is a limit.
At some point, it doesn't make the cut.
And when you make "unlimited statements" like "we don't care",... expect to it be raised to the next level.
Oh.. and by the way... it NEVER remains "out of the workplace" in the military. This isn't IBM. I worked at IBM. (And BTW, it didn't remain out of the workplace there either).
And while I accept that DoD says it's "OK" from a legal standpoint to be in a homosexual relationship,.. it doesn't mean that I don't care "who you bang".
Your limits may be more liberal than mine... but it does "matter".
And I do care.
