    You really think DADT is going to stay around?

    How hard is that???
    Officers are going to need to know exactly what the DoD's policy on such things as, fraternization, billeting and sexual harrassment and how these issues are to be addressed, when it comes to gay soldiers.

    Gays will have to be counciled on sexual harrassment and fraternization. Currently, the regulations only pertain to male on female/female on male situations.


    I know you're not going to agree and will probably call me a homophobe and a racist, but these are the realities of openly gay soldiers serving in the United States armed forces. Anyone that can't accept this, isn't genuinely interested in gays succeeding in a military career.

    No, they actually cannot. As usual on this topic, you are dead wrong.

    Military recruiters told they can accept openly gay applicants - CNN.com

    The recruiters were told that if a candidate admits he or she is openly gay, and qualify under normal recruiting guidelines, their application can be processed. Recruiters are not allowed to ask candidates if they are gay as part of the application process.
    You can of course show where on their "record" it denotes whether they are gay or not, and you can of course show where recruiters are actually asking if recruits are gay. I mean, you would not be making stuff up again.

    Yes, I do and it should. I'll say again--for the umpteenth time--that DADT should remain in place and the actual ban on gays should be lifted. Anyone heard discussing his/her sexuality, sexual escapades, or encounters should be subject to disciplinary action.

    I always felt that soldiers, sitting around, telling pussy stories was bad for business, anyway.

    A mod responds with a personal attack? How shocking is that?

    Tell us, oh miss, "I know everything", how can, "openly gay", personel be recruited, if no one knows they are gay? gee willikers!

    If a recruit is, "openly gay", and you actually believe a CNN story, claiming that nowhere will it be recorded, then I don't know what to say for you.

    LOL...why else would recruiters need to inform openly gay recruits of the risk they're taking, by enlisting as, openly gay recruits.

    Common sense has to take over at some point.

    Pandoras Box - This Administration inspite of past BS in 2008 now kind of realizes that this might blowback on them. It's a No Win situation all around and brought on by less than 500 Malcontents.

    Yes, but it's still more than you provided. Sad that CNN just proved to be more credible than you.

    Re: Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants

    I want to make it very clear to everyone that i am not accusing anyone of anything and I am not making any assumptions about anyone who posts here and in threads about homosexuals in the military or outside the military, and I am not going to go and see who is for or against any position.

    Okay everybody got that?

    All I want to know is what is the attraction to this subject matter? It seems that with minutes of a new thread being posted there is a mad dash to get in on it.

    Why? And once again I am just asking. Does anyone else wonder about this, and could it be that there might be some undisclosed reason lurking in the shadow?

    I honestly can't think of any topic that gets this much attention so darn fast.

    How much can you say about this?

    I have stick pretty much with a single position on the subject.

    Lift the ban and if problems of a real serious nature come up find a way to make the ban permanent and activist judge proof and use real no imagined evidence to prove the need and if nothing happens fine. No harm no foul. Fraternization is already banned and punishable so there you are.
