|We should take certain meassures into account regarding the defence of our nation. These are some of these and should be considered by the parliament with serious thoughts on the defence of our borders and the protectin of our population.|
1: We should have our soldiers focused on military warfare and emergency aid. Not creating a state sponsored dating service. Therefore there is no need to have marked people whether they belong to different sexual directions. The HHP believe that most of the people this law will affect is pleased that they will not be forced to tell anything about their private life.
2: We see no need to follow international law when the hobrazian law apply for these situations. Prisoners of war should be treated according to the laws of Hobrazia. If we are the captor power and we provide facilities etc. for the prisoners, it should be our own law that decide how to treat prisoners of war.
Old value:: Homosexuality is allowed in the military.
Current: Homosexuality is allowed in the military.
Proposed: Open homosexuality is not tolerated in the military. The military has a "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
Proposal[?] to change The government's policy regarding the treatment of prisoners of war.
Old value:: Prisoners of war must be treated well, according to internationally-accepted standards.
Current: Prisoners of war must be treated well, according to internationally-accepted standards.
Proposed: Prisoners of war are treated according to the national laws of the captor power.

|Message||"We should have our soldiers focused on military warfare and emergency aid. Not creating a state sponsored dating service. " - Are we the only ones to spot a gigantic flaw in this reasoning? Currently both male and female soldiers work together at all levels, but this causes no problems with operational effectiveness, so why would homosexuals cause any problems?|

|Message||And yet they would not be allowed to be openly homosexual yet a colleague can be openly hetrosexual. Currently they are not forced to tell anything about their sexual preferences but they may, should they wish, be open about them to colleagues. This bill does not allow them to do that and restricts the rights of homosexuals over hetrosexuals.|

|Random fact: Did you know you can change the official name of your nation? All you need to do is draw up a new name that is in accordance with the National Renaming Guide, pass a bill proposing the name change with a 2/3rds majority and then post a request to Moderation on the "Nation/Region/City/Newspaper Renaming Requests" thread. You can change city and region names in this way too, so long as the new names "reflect the culture of the nation".|
