    Re: Dont ask Dont tell Policy Ruled Unconstitutional

    So ......a federal court in California ruled that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy -- which bars gay men and lesbians from serving openly -- is unconstitutional. Yet, it was California that put gay marriage to a vote and they determined that they have no such right?

    It has been stated on this thread and elsewhere that they are using the military for their social engineering. Perhaps there is truth here. Historically, it has always been the military that carried the burden of social change for the nation. When women were permitted to climb only so high in the civilian sector, the military was promoting them to levels of leadership and placing them in cockpits. When people were marching for civil rights and equality for blacks, the military's patrols were colorful. I used to think that the subject of homosexuality was the lone exception, but not anymore. If any state but California made this declaration I would think differently. Once again, civilians seek the one organization they can count on to force the issue for the suits.

    It pretty much comes down to this. None of you have a clue about what you are talking about. Just a bunch of opinionated dip****s that don't have anything to do with enforcing changes or the ramifications of what those changes even are. And "DADT" was a Clinton creation to satisfy the same dip****s today who demand something from the military that they know is professional enough to enforce progress.

    California is as conflicted as the rest of the country. I guess the military gets to yet again sort out the social norm for civilians.

    20 year old gay people ...... pretty much a nitrous filled sex-bomb waiting to happen.
    Yup. Heteros, as you said. All they think about is sex. I'm surprised the military gets anything done. Thank god for the gays getting things back on track.

    I'm incapable of not being distracted by sex around women. Though as I mentioned, that is starting to fade.

    Gay men have a lot more sex than heteros, so I would assume this is even more true for them.

    Interestingly, this decision was handed down by a Clinton appointee.

    I still doubt that id you're in a combat situation that the one thing on your mind will be if the bloke in front of you has a nice arse.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think your underestimating the amount of sex straight people can have.
