    And I like how you guys pride yourselves on making pride sound like a bad thing when it comes to the gay community.
    It's a bad thing, when it comes to DADT abolition being mostly agenda driven.

    I don't think it's, "special protection", it's a device put in place to allow gays to serve, without fear of being kicked out, or witch hunted.

    Why not just enlist, do your job and shutup?

    You are correct, I forgot to add a the word "not" between the words "should" and "be". That was my mistake.

    Why not allow people to serve with the same rules for everyone?

    But they are serving under the same rules, DADT is law for everyone. Heterosexuals cannot talk about their sexual preference either.

    That shouldn't be the case.

    What?! Yes they can. My husband talks about me often enough that the other guys know who I am when I walk into that office. For that matter, they talk about their wives/girlfriends often enough that I know about them just from the stories my husband tells me. DADT in no way prevents a straight person from revealing their orientation.

    You are probably right, but to be totally consistent that is what the gays should be focusing on.
