    You can of course prove this? Come on, just once prove something you say.

    Conflicted, yes. Confused, no. That being said.....I just don't want to catch it...kidding.

    I just don't like inaccuracy. DADT was horribly abused by people who simply used it to escape their obligations. The rules were very clear - "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." It was absolutely illegal for anybody to bring personal "investigation" to the C.O. of homosexual activity. It was illegal to ask or to inquire. However, telling was another matter. It forced a legal reaction, especially if the whole unit was watching. Homosexuality had to be obvious, which satisfied the military's want to simply pretend it doesn't exist and the civilian's want to allow them their peace. But it didn't work out that way. Gays and non-gays came out of the wood work to declare their gayness. Under DADT, strict rules told the military exactly what to do. Numbers exploded. There were no mass witchhunts as gays on the outside pretend their were. And DADT was a moral and a financal burden. The few execptions that people cling to in order to rally the parade were not the rule.

    My sense of "icky" does not transcend my professionalism to comply and enforce policy. I believe I represent most. The writing is on the wall. It's time to evolve our military once again for the society. I think I can understand the professionalism of those who were tasked with mixing the races or to promote the females to levels of unit responsibility.

    In the same breath you said you wanted DADT.

    Repealing DADT is not the issue anymore. Even the military has grown beyond this.

    I believe you represent well what is good with our military and why we have the best military in the world. It's because of people like you that DADT can be repealed without significant problems.

    With a lifting of the ban on gays.

    try this on and see if it fits your Libbo mindset:

    DADT: Leadership don't ask, gay soldiers don't tell, straight soldiers don't tell, soldiers don't tell on gay soldiers.

    Or is that not, "in yer face", enough to satisfy you?

    Now calling someone a libbo is a personal attack like he just did.

    What about when a gay soldier gets married to their same sex partner?
