    Legally accepted. They cannot if they wanted to make every one feel they are normal.

    Part of being in the military is having a built in support group. When some one goes through something like that, they have people to talk to and friends to share with who are close. Unless you are gay of course, in which case you can't mention it...

    Still doesn't show them asking for special treatment.
    They want to say sexual orientation is a civil rights issue I say it is not. Gay is not normal and has cosequences you know that from the beginning they are trying to change that and be accepted as normal. They have not been denied marriage or military service

    I didn't marry when I was in. Too hard on the wife, plus it would have intefered with my tail chasing.


    I don't reccomend anyone in the military who deploys to marry. Save it for later.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.
    Don't hate me 'cause I'm beautiful, but hate me all the more.

    Rules are broken that is gays got kicked out they had to tell

    What rights or military benefits were denied by DADT?

    They may have been seen at the mall holding hands with some one of the same sex(that's a tell according to the rules).

    They may have been drunk and let slip they had a boyfriend/girlfriend of the same sex.

    They may have quietly gotten married in one of the states that allows it.

    They may have had some one look over their shoulder at emails to their partner.

    Normal is so subjective that trying to base laws on someone's definition of normal is never wise. And yes, LGBT Americans are being denied marriage, and military service.

    Rules mean nothing look how many got discharged because they could not folloe DADT
