"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
But, that's not what the Lefties want to go down. They want a show.
Also, DADT has already been neutered pretty well. It is now a secretary-level decision to discharge someone under DADT, and those guys usually have better things to do.
One of you will end up here next!
and they will push the envelope as sure as we are having this conversation.
and my further point, again is that gays ARE allowed in the military now, as long as they conduct themselves in a way that doesnt include this sterotypical I describe.
The very meaning of military, as anyone who has been thru the rigors of preparing for combat knows, does not allow this mindset.
Its a macho environment, this is not a glee club.
conduct yourself accordingly or you will be harassed.
I dont care if you repeal till the cows come home, that really changes nothing.
And will only add additional resentment if straight soldiers are somehow called aside and punished for telling an openly gay soldier to act like a soldier.
quit being ridiculous.
You are gay and want to serve in the military, come on in, but realize this is no place for you to soapbox your PC insecurities.
deal with it
