I think it is doable to get rid of DADT, but it will be painful.
Racial integration did not break the military, nor did allowing women increased roles. Both cases do point to how best to handle the transition though, and the study I linked does make comparisons and from them recommendations on how to handle things when it does happen, and it is inevitably going to happen before too long.
It could still be a big problem, much like the problems that occurred when blacks were integrated. I don't mean when all black units were formed, I mean when blacks were integrated into all white units. Lots of problems occurred, I believe. In wartime, there is always the reports of soldiers who catch a bullet in the back. That level of distrust and dislike will occur.

I'm trying to start a new thread on a topic I find very interesting. Cheers.
