Sexual preference has nothing to do with a selection process, no matter what the situation involves.
Segregation of any kind is wrong, especially for employment, or social gatherings.
Having feelings for the same sex in no way can define the skill set that a person can bring to the table.
A gay man can have the same capabilities that a straight man has.
Judging people by their sexual choices is not only wrong but there is absolutely no legitimate reasoning behind the motivation to ostracize human beings by their sexual preference.
It's important to learn from the mistakes of the past.
In 1992, when Bill Clinton was running for president the Department of Defense had a questionable policy based on Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice that prohibited homosexuals from serving in the military.
Clinton issued an Executive Order for the current "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
It's not only morally corrupt but illegal for an individual, a organization, or even an employer to ask for your sexual preference.
It's been 20 years since then, and for an issue involving segregation due to a person's style of living is redundant.
If a person is gay, lesbian, straight, or bisexual, no matter what, it doesn't matter.
Their eligibility for certain things does not, in any way, tie into their sexual preference.
It is irrelevant.
Estimating people's work ethic or mental capacity based on their sexual orientation is like guessing how tall they are based on the sound of their voice.
Yes, it's that irrelevant of a connection.
It shouldn't even be a topic of conversation in an interview.
Now a days, many people focus on the unimportant details. Applying for a job? Then the employer should focus on your experiences, strengths, and weaknesses, not on your personal life.
One can only hope that in the future a person can be excepted for whatever they are and just exclude the unnecessary scrutiny that homosexuals go through.
