    Wants to drop DADT:

    Top military leaders
    The commander-in-chief
    The people
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    So who does that leave that DOES NOT want to drop DADT?

    People who think gays are sinners? People who are concerned about the adverse effects within the ranks of the military due to homophobia?

    In reality, I think so. But I would tread lightly pointing it out. Some people are truly threatened by gays for, I suspect, reasons of their own. Some stones are best left unturned.

    It is good enough to know that the restrictions placed on gays regarding the military are soon to be lifted. All people fear change to a degree. Some, just more than others. Don't make them bad people. Just makes them remnant products of generations past. Every generation builds upon the past generation. In 40 years from now, even the most socially liberal today could very well be considered a dinosaur hard-core conservative, by the standards of the future.

    All true. All good points.

    I'm gonna take a guess at what happens after we lift DADT.

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing will change in the military. They'll just keep right on doing their jobs. And all of those on the internet who screeched and wailed about DADT being lifted will let the issue drift quietly into the background.

    I think a lot of people are against DADT being lifted simply because the Democrats are in favor of it.

    That is basically accurate. People in the military will bitch, but that is what military people do about any change. Overall, no significant changes will occur in the military culture, or military readiness. Any problem people of either orientation will be quickly and heavily quashed to send a message, and people will mostly get on board with the program.

    And I think you would be 100% correct.

    Point in case. Where are all those men in the black horned-rimmed glasses that were fighting racial equality 50 years ago? Where are all those men in crew-cuts and button-up shirts that we're protesting rock and roll and hippy's? Where are all those bearded, smelly men in thick suits that were adamently against allow women to vote?

    This too, shall pass.
