    Only way? No, it's just one way that it could happen. Nevertheless, it is a very distinct possibility, which is why so many people are hesitant to rush into repealing DADT.

    Wow. I could see how I would know nothing about that kind of stuff.
    Well, you don't.

    As to your other comment about what generals know about the military, when a Brigadier General tells me that she believes gay people should be able to serve in the military, I think she has some knowledge about the military, don't you?
    Sure, she has some knowledge about the military, but the military is not a homogeneous organization that can be spoken of in meaningless generalities. I'm sure she has a lot of knowledge about drinking coffee and doing paper work but her understanding of combat units and their cohesiveness is nonexistent.

    You really dont have any clue about the military do you. So if I am a general and am honest and not trying to be PC and admit that allowing gays to serve openly may cause some problems from so in the Military that makes me homophobic. There is no possible way that it just might be that I have been around alot of soldiers and know that many of them will have problems with people being openly gay and the situation needs to be studied and done with the right way so as not to effect combat readiness. You really show that you dont know what the hell you are talking about when you say things like that. If it is a fact as you say than I am sure you can prove it right. If you dont think that females in the millitary has and continues to cause problems than that just further shows you are totaly clueless

    Re: 2 Generals Wary About Repealing Gay Policy

    The biggest problem that I have with allowing gays to serve openly is that they will probably become one more protected segment of the military the same as women. Now I am not saying this is the gays or womens fault but it is what it is. While I admitidly dont work with women very often in my job but on occasion when dealing with support personal you come across the woman who know that she can get away with alot more that a man could when it comes to not doing her job or being disciplined. To many people in command are worried about having a complaint of discrimination from a woman and just let her get away with it. I have a friend that for a while was in some trouble because he made a comment to a lower ranking woman about her weight because she clearly was not within height and weight standard. Now if he would have said the exact same thing to a dude it would have been fine and well within his rights to do so. There are also minoritys that play the race card for the same reasons. To me this is one of the biggest problems of letting gays serve openly in the millitary and needs to be adressed.
