    We'll see what tune you sing the first time a gay soldier gets kicked out for, "being gay".
    The repeal of DADT means "being gay" isn't enough to get one discharged. Did you not understand the point of all this?

    Tell you what: bookmark this thread. When this theoretical situation occurs and I hypothetically respond, you can lord it over me. Assuming I react the way your partisan hallucination believes I will.

    yeah, but you're actually in a close quarter unit. What could you possibly know?

    Since it the repeal hasn't happened yet, not much, since everything is speculation until it does.

    The likely problems that will happen are some will be uncomfortable showering/living with guys that do come out as gay but since there is no one being forced to reveal their sexuality, then it will be a voluntary revelation anyway.

    I am completely unsurprised that the folks in our military have the strength of character not to freak out over gay cooties.

    not fully. bringing women in has always created problems - I would suspect the results of this would be similar.

    You act as if our service members are super human and don't have the same emotions that everyone else does.

    And just think, a few years ago, most Lefties saw them as a bunch of brainwashed murderers.
