How Gen. James Mattis Answered Democrat Questions on Gays and Women in the Military - Breitbart: Senate Democrats challenged Gen. James Mattis for his previous statements questioning the decision to allow gays to serve openly in the military and to allow women to serve in combat roles.
“Frankly, Senator, I’ve never cared much about two consenting adults and who they go to bed with,” Mattis replied, when pressed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) about homosexuals serving openly in the military.
“Do you believe that openly serving homosexuals along with women in combat units is undermining our force?” Gillibrand continued.
“Senator my belief is that we have to stay focused on a military that is so lethal that on the battlefield that it will be the enemy’s longest day and their worst day when they run into that force,” he said.
