    Would've preferred this to come from the legislature, but oh well.

    Re: Dont ask Dont tell Policy Ruled Unconstitutional

    This did just bring up an interesting sideline to the whole DADT debate. Assuming that it is removed, and gays are allowed to openly serve, they would, of course, be subject to the UCMJ just like any other member of the armed service. It bring up all sorts of interesting situations. They could date openly, but as gay sex is prohibited in the UCMJ, they would be unable to legally have sex. Course..it is illegal in many states too. So it seems that the definition of sodomy in the UCMJ would need to be changed if gays are allowed to openly serve. To allow them to openly serve, but tell them they cannot have sex seems a bit harsh. Can imagine the internal debate..Okay..I can serve my country, or I can have sex.....decisions decisions..

    It will, Orion. Almost guaranteed. While the court may have stirred the hornet's nest, you can be almost certain that in the end, it will end up with the legislature. If nothing else, than to ease the minds of those who are so bothered by the courts getting involved.

    Congress has no authority over military regulations, either.

    But most dont seem to get that those "scary" gays are not going to enlist. Are you kidding me? Combat boots dont come with high heels, and it is IMPOSSIBLE to get a pair of BDUs in pink.

    And, IMO, the sexual harassment rate will sky rocket.

    Don't ask don't tell was a defense directive issued by the president. It had nothing to do with the military. Please dont act as though only the military decides wht the military can and cant do. Good god..You'll get Sarge going again.
