In fact, there are probably a lot of bigoted people out there who would willing allow a fellow servicemember to die just because they don't like a certain trait of that person. There are probably some who would allow a fellow soldier to die because they
don't like a particular person, for whatever reason. There are no rules that will ever prevent this. And DADT does nothing to reduce intolerance. In fact, it promotes it.
And, yes, an accusation is reason to open an investigation into charges of harassment, not to actually make the charges stick. And, unfortunately, a lot of time it is placed on the accused to prove their innocence, which is wrong. This is another thing about the military that is broke, but it should not prevent repealing DADT. It should mean that those accusing someone else of harassment should have some sort of proof that they were actually being harassed. Unfortunately, there is no good way to deal with this issue, unless the military started setting up cameras with complete audio recording in every space the military owns to ensure that every act of harassment is always completely caught on tape.
And I'm thinking that things should be fair for everyone, to the best extent that it can be. DADT is not fair. It needs to change. I have felt like this since before I joined the Navy, during my active Navy time, and still do during my reserve time. The military should not be promoting intolerance.
