    Re: 'Don't ask, don't tell' repeal in doubt

    I'll be against the repeal of DADT if I see substantial, conclusive evidence that Gay people are actually less of a soldier than straight people and only hinder their groups. Of course we will never see any evidence suggesting that, it's going to be repealed so why are we delaying the inevitable?

    The reason this went down was that the Pentagon study on the issue does not finish until January of next year. Most want to wait on the results from that before voting in favor of a repeal, which is the best course of action. A few more months won't matter. DADT will still probably not be around even a year from now.

    what kind of response do you get out of service members when you speak to them about it? I'll recall a couple I've had

    Neighbor who was in the Navy "We can't let them f###ots in the armed forces, they'd go around raping people and they would make bad soilders." exact words I might add

    Uncle in the Army when asked would you support the repeal of DADT, "**** no, I don't want to be around a bunch of c#######ing f###ots"

    Brutal but true, I haven't talked to many service members about DADT..only a handful but everyone of them have been extremely homophobic and unjust. If this is the majority reaction you get out of service members then I would say screw what they say, they are wrong.

    Well atleast the hompphobic one's. The many homosexual and heterosexual one's that care for their fellow soldiers right to not have to lie about who they are just got smacked back down.

    Yay for sexual suppression!

    I believe the survey is already done, and was a small part of the overall process. They are not trying to figure out if the troops want a repeal either, it's a survey about the kinds of potential problems with a repeal.

    No nothing like that with the people I have talked to..........They just want what little privacy they have to continue....That is what they signed up for........
