I hope you're right; from the bottom of my heart, I hope so. But, what if you're wrong? And people die? Or, our combat strength is weakened?I actually believe it will be far less tramatic than you think.
I agree with allowing gays to serve (which wasn't always my position. I've turned around a little on that issue.) But, the, "I'm gay and in yer face and if you don't like it tuff ****", approach isn't worth someone's life, nor damage to our armed forces. Do you think it's worth it?
Also, I'm not talking about leaving DADT in place, permanently. But, at least for the time being leave it where it is, with modifications, ease into the transition and slowly lift the DADT restrictions until the policy is no longer needed. I think it's going to be a barrel of monkies, otherwise.
Is it practical to have gays and straights billeting seperately? Part of what binds a unit together is the fact that they live together. I'm telling you, that's going to happen. The Commandant of the Marine Corps has already said that it's going to be necessary.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
