    Are you aware that many straits used DADT as an easy way to get out of their enlistment contract? Not happy with your enlistment, go to your CO, say "I am gay" and get an honorable if you have at least 6 months, else a general.

    They would like that, yes. It is not something they can force, nor are they trying.

    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.

    Probably more so because they have been denied. Hearing about gay sex acts will disgust many

    Allowing LGBT soldiers to serve openly will not force anyone to hear about gay sex acts.

    Gays can marry legally with a license in few places so you argument means nothin. So you are waiting for Obama to do what he said he would? |207|

    Not the same thing is it. If they serve, they have a right to be treated the same.
