I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
Like I stated earlier, hate on the military all you like. In the end, it's society that prescribes the general mood. What you want is for the military to make it all better for you and you blame it for not snapping centuries of tradition in two on a whim. My guess is that you won't be the first inline to sign the dotted line anyway. Other gays and the rest of us are going to have to go through the storm for your sense of self soothing. You might as well allow us the study to figure our how best to do it.
You all act as if the problem is about homophobic straights that are too prejudiced to serve with gay soldiers.
I can't believe that people who claim to so enligthened and intelligent are having such a hard time seeing the bigger picture.
Instead, ya'll want to go off half cocked, demand that DADT be abolished, without giving a single thought to the concequences and call everyone that disagrees with you a homophobe and a bigot.
