    If a gay can't obey DADT I doubt he will have the discipline it takes to be a soldier 24/7.

    If a gay refuses to obey DADT what other orders will he refuse to obey?
    If DADT was repealed, they wouldn't be refusing to obey orders now would they?
    Perhaps you can give us a reason not to repeal it? Instead of talking about "the gays."

    What do you want him to call a gay person?

    The gays are disobeying it and complaining about getting booted. That leaves me asking the previous question.

    If DADT was repealed they could disobey other direct orders. It shows they do not have the discipline military life requires.

    I am not concerned about the Gays I am concerned about my country.
    It benefits the gays who are part of the military. What do you have against them? Are you under the assumption that allowing gays to openly serve will weaken our national security? Why are you so concerned that they have equal rights? Is that some sort of threat to your safety? Why are you so concerned?

    The army was equally effective without integration, why integrate?

    What I would like is to have him answer the question. I don't have a problem with what words he chooses to associate with gay people. It's just a little funny to me because of the widely recognized internet phrase used to make fun of people who have issues with "the ghey."

    Maybe you'd like to answer the question?

    If gays have to talk about this how do we trust them with military secrets.

    Notice my previous posts on the discipline. It is not an 8 hour a day job.

    Besides your job you have to stay in shape. Keep your appearance right .You have to keep up with changing procedures. You have to study for promotion tests.

    If they cannot follow the orders of DADT what other orders will they disobey. Will they have the discipline to do what is expected of them 24/7?

    Instead of asking what benefit of repealing DADT would be, perhaps the question would be why DADT was implemented in the first place? What exactly is the benefit of keeping it?

    If DADT was repealed they could disobey other direct orders. It shows they do not have the discipline military life requires.
    ...because gays just disobey orders because they're gay? Are they naturally like that?

    I notice you dodge my points. People who have served understand what I am talking about.
