You might want to be careful, it almost sounds like you're defending DADT.
I agree with others that they need to just get it done. With Gates for it, and the judicial system seemingly ready to roll out the red carpet ..... it all was a matter of time anyway. I think things will adjust OK in the units. Gays will never be warmly welcomed in the higher testosterone outfits, and those situations will find their own equilibrium which will never be favorable to the gays. I have no problem with that, as that's the way things are wired. DADT will be replaced with various versions of STFU is all.
I served for seven years with the 82nd. Combat Infantry. I am not saying that I like this, but it is how things are going to be. My younger brother is gay, and I love him to death. Joining the military never crossed his mind, and he knows it would have been a real bad fit. So he became a left-leaning attorney
Adapt, and move on.
I personally strongly support gays serving openly, but a General is concerned about 'good order and discipline' and your response is "ZOMG teh haz RIGHTS lolkthxby" (yes, that is an accurate summery of your OP), that's bull****.
Try addressing the General's concerns instead of ignoring them and going of in your own direction.
