    So, you're going with McCain's "it's not the policy it's not the policy it's not the policy" defense?

    It doesn't get more basic than this: if they are competent experts in their field and they are conducting themselves with professionalism, there is no reason for ANYONE to be kicked out, period.

    How hard is that for the pro-DADT people to grasp? The sky isn't going to fall. Life goes on. It did for minorities and women in the military who gained social victories. It will for gays as well.

    They're going to be allowed to serve openly whether you like it or not. I suggest you get used to it.

    If they are competant experts in their field and are acting with professionalism, then there's no reason they can't follow the regulations that they know are in place. Period.

    I'm not really interested in what the regulation says.

    They should be able to hold hands with a loved one in public. Or talk about how awesome last night's sex was with their buddies when off-duty.

    So, you're completely ignorant of how DADT is supposed to work? Ok, got it!

    If a male soldier had the same conversation with a female soldier, he would get busted for sexual harassment. Your ignorance of a system that you hate is astounding.

    No, actually he would not, unless it was something he had been asked by her not to do, and he continued to do it. The same thing also goes in reverse.

    So what you're telling me is Private Jimmy Johns tells Private Billy Joe that he got laid in town last night, he gets busted.

    Riiight.

    You know more about it than the rest of us?
