    No more openly than a hetero couple. Let's stick with one argument.
    No they aren't. How is a hetero couple being allowed to kiss, but a homo couple not being able to equal?

    And no, it's the same argument, with your answer there you are saying that DADT should be repealed. Because with DADT in place, a LGBT soldier can't not express their sexual orientation like straight soldiers can.

    Actually, it's not. Have you spent time in a fighting position with a gay soldier? Have you spent time in a fighting position with any soldier? Again, be honest.

    No member of the military is allowed to publically display affection.

    It frankly doesn't bother me what someone's orientation is.

    Another member of the military has stated otherwise, and I doubt you aren't allowed to kiss in a movie theater?
    Also I doubt the hetero couple would hardly be disciplined even if the Army were to crack down on this, while the LGBT soldier would be discharged.

    In no way are LGBT soldiers equal in todays Army, and that is all kinds of ****ed up, and the fact that you fail to see that is disturbing.

    One does not need military experience in order to clearly see that a prejudicial and discriminatory policy was wrongfully created and maintained for so long. The area where my military expertise is lacking is in how to smoothly implement the abolishing of DADT, and for that I think military experience should be relied on. But the policy itself is everyone's concern.

    Now, are you going to debate the actual policy or just keep up the petty posturing? Because even people in the military disagree over DADT, so clearly military experience doesn't form objective opinions.

    Would your ability to fight, be hindered by removing DADT?
