    Has anyone been discharged for asking if someone is gay?

    Isn't the policy really just Don't Tell?

    They have no excuse for what, BTW?
    Breaking the law of DADT

    Are you telling me that gays aren't being discharged for adultery? Why would that be? Oh, is it because they can't get MARRIED??

    Look, it's not that they get a pass on that, it's that the policy doesn't even apply to them.

    Do you have a better example?

    Since when would gays be having special sexual priveleges?

    Yeah that is right, just like a good looking female who was a ship mate would not sleep with me and I don't blame her because being the horny guy I am I would probably make a move on her...
    Since when were gays good looking females?

    So, if DADT is repealed, and a straight refuses to obey a gay commander, will you also doubt he will have the discipline to be a soldier, and will you also be concerned about what other orders he will refuse to obey?
    I refuse to respond to you

    Will they disobey other orders that they don't agree with? I for one do not think we should take that chance.
    I've decided. You've made an excellent point. Someone who disobey's one order or rule cannot be trusted. They might disobey other orders or rules. We shouldn't take the chance and should not allow them there.

    In fact, this is such a good argument, I can see it having ramifications in other areas. For instance, you have several infractions, proving that you cannot obey the rules. By your logic, you should not be allowed to post at DP since you have proven you cannot obey rules and we should not take the chance, since, by your logic, you will break more rules.

    So, shall I ban you now?

    So its ok for Heterosexuals but not gays? Sounds discriminating to me.

    See? You do fear your golf buddy. You afraid of him making a move on you, if you two were ever in the same bed together.

    NP, I don't mean any disrespect at all when I say this, but this is really an irrational fear, this homophobia you have. Why does it always go back to something sexual when we talk about gays?
