    That was pretty cut and dry.............
    Yeah I just signed that statement....
    USMEPCOM reg 601-23

    Although we have not and will not ask you about your sexual Orientation, you should be aware that homosexual conduct is grounds for discharge from the Armed Forces. This means that if you do one of the following, you could be involuntarily separated before your term of service ends:

    1. Homosexual acts. You engage in, attempt to engage in, or solicit another to engage in a homosexual act or acts. A homosexual act means touching a person of your same sex or allowing such a person to touch you for the purpose of satisfying sexual desires. (For example, hand-holding or kissing, or other physical contact of a sexual nature.)
    2. Homosexual statements. You make a statement that demonstrates a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts. This may include language or behavior that a reasonable person would believe intends to convey the statement that you are a homosexual or bisexual.
    3. Homosexual marriage. You marry or attempt to marry a person of your same sex.


    You may not be discharged if you do or say these things solely to end your military service
    IMO that regulation should be taken down.

    Like if a gay couple goes to their local church and has a ceremony which is not legally recognized by the state; or if that couple jumps states and legally marrys in that state even though their home state doesn't recognize it; or if a license application is submitted where one same-sex person is in the section for the opposite sex.

    I hadn't thought of that. I figured it was more like attempted murder, you know, like the person you tried to marry says "nice try, but you can't get me that easily."

    I don't think they should repeal DADT. Having (open) gays in the military would be like bunking men and women together, it's just no appropriate. In the military (from what I understand) you don't always have the privilege of personal privacy, making it all the more inappropriate for gays to be in the military.

    Gay men are not women. Gay women are not men. I don't know why this confuses people so much.

    True but gay men are attracted to men, and gay women are attracted to women. It would be inappropriate for men and women to shower together and live in close quarters because of sexual attraction. Homosexuality is no exception.
