I'd think in a combat situation where you might get captured by some real gay-haters it could be a situation where gays would definitely want to hide their gayness.
Do all heteros have self-control? Put a couple babes in with a red-blooded guy and see if that doesn't get really difficult for the guy. Now why would that not happen to a gay thrown in with straights? I think you are expecting too much out of people.Please tell me you arent advocating treating homosexuals like some second class citizen and separating them from the rest of the populace are you? Why would we possibly need seperate showers? They shower with homosexuals now dont they?
If it's necessary, it's necessary. Not everybody has self-control. That's the problem.What is the purpose of DADT outside of segregation and oppression of a particular class of people?
"It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens." Woody Allen.
In order to show the new open minded military tolerance, we can also paint the tanks a bright pink and put smiley faces on them.
Let’s also allow women to fight in combat units; after all, it is all about equality and forget about common sense, who needs any of that these days. Why everyone, gays, “heteros” and even polygamists can now snuggle in their foxholes; no need to suffer lonely chills.
Yes, I am so looking forward to a brave new world that hugs its enemies and treats EVERYONE with total equality and ensures that everyone has the exact same opportunities, incomes, homes and cars that the Government has determined as being “green”, “fair” and “just” according to this code of fairness created by Liberals who know so much better that is best for the rest of us; except of course if you are an unborn child or a Republican.
Hard to believe the military would allow any Catholics to serve at all after the pedo scandals in the Catholic church the past fifty years.
I've never heard of any pedo scandals occuring at the gay clubs or groups I've belonged to...
Huh? Really? You are making a joke here, right? Please, please tell me you don't actually believe that...but if you do, I can get you a great price on tin foil hats.Originally Posted by Truth Detector
A number of things wrong with this. You do know about the origin and meaning of the phrase "peace dividend", right? You do know that alot of the things Clinton was blamed for in regard to "weakening the military" where actually policies started by president Bush the elder? I could go on, but you get the idea.Originally Posted by Truth Detector

"3: Don't ask, don't tell and being openly gay in the military has nothing to do with either point 1 or 2. "
Wow, meaning almost entirely unchanged.
