    Most people believe Straight is the norm, even in LA LA......Seem like you would have learned that on your referendum DD.

    True, but if you want out, you can get out. DADT just made it easier, and is among its faults. Time to just get rid of it and let gays serve the country they too love.

    Doesn't matter what most people believe...do you promote truth or dishonesty?

    Sorry I can't agree....Maybe in the AF but never the Navy........It will never work......There are enough problems under DADT but they would double if it wasn't there............

    They use to ask you when you enlisted if you were gay.that was one extreme and was wrong...........dropping DADT is the other extreme..............

    You know there is a gay navy vet who posts on these boards? I knew two gays while in the navy. It's not such a problem as you think.

    Emotional politics being forced on the military... because the military's job is to make people feel better about themselves.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I am not denying there are gay sailors and they do their jobs but I was in the Navy for 21 years on 6 Navy ships and I don't care what any gay guy says......There are incidents all the time of gay sailors making unwanted advances against straight........I have seen them personally......Many discharges and hours of paperwork to process them........The military is there to fight your wars not as a place for social experimentation............They tried it with women serving aboard ship and it does not work there either.......The problem is to many senior officers are afraid for their careers to speak out...........

    The only way gays serving openly would work is to give them their own ship....

    The problem with females on ships is that the smaller the department/division, the more it hurts when one or more are suddenly preggers prior to deployment and no time to replace them.

    Exactly, you walk around Naval Station Bremerton or Sub Base Bangor and all you see is pregnant female sailors but that is another thread so I will drop it.....

    Yep, one of the several reasons - like we said in another thread, you have to be able to depend on your soldiers and when the get knocked up (it happens often, either unplanned or quite intentionally - pregnancy rates in the ranks skyrocket before deployment), or are out because of a monthly-cramp day they are no longer dependable. . .these natural factoids of being female are the reason why females in the service are an issue.
