    Not hide does not mean flaunt. Not hide means to not have to hide. I don't hide my weight problems. I do not flaunt them.

    I wonder how many experienced outdoorsy young recruits, the type that tend to flourish in the military, will choose not to join now?

    San Francisco isn't exactly teaming with gun enthusiasts. LOL

    Yes. ~2/3 said allowing gays to serve would have no effect or mixed effect on readiness.

    It appears they are succeding since DADT and gay marriage have become big political issues

    You act like there aren't any homos in Texas. Austin and Dallas are like gay havens with great chicken wings.

    When Britain was thinking about changing to allow gays to serve, polling within the military indicated that a large portion of the military would not re-enlist and that enlistment would be harder. The truth was that neither happened, as retention and recruitment remained steady.

    Gay rednecks are freaking awesome. They have the best looking pickups and gun racks!
