    Good thing we can judge an entire group of of people by the actions of a few.

You're okay with a soldier being discharged for dating a partner outside of military life? You're okay with someone not being able to start a family in fear of being discharged from the army? This isn't about not keeping a soldiers sexuality to themselves, it's about being able to live their lives without fear of being discharged. If you truly believed that the government should stay out of our bedrooms, then you would be against DADT, and all laws that distinguish LGBT Americans from heterosexual Americans. Because those laws are nothing but the government intruding into our bedrooms.

    The point is, it shouldn't have happened at all.

    Sexual harrassment shouldn't happen period. I say we ban all straight men from the military, since they're the biggest offenders.

    You know better than that NP. The military can break parts of the contract for many reasons. And, it is not actually in a person's contract that they won't have to work/live with gays.

    But it's not true that LGBT soldiers cannot do those things you mention, Star. Isn't the "don't ask" part about not investigating possibly gay soldiers? The military won't look to out you so long as you don't out yourself.

    They can't do these things. If they brought a partner to a military function, they would be outed, if they lived with their partner on base, they would be outed, if they got a marriage(in a state that has SSM) they would be outed. Now I'm sure you would agree that this stuff isn't flaunting one's sexuality, now why should a LGBT soldier be discharged because of these things?

    What I learned today: being gay means you sexually harassed those around you. Because 90 % of the country is christian(Is it?) that means they all are against DADT and just lied when polled.

    Lord knows what I might learn tomorrow. Navy Pride, shipmate, thank you so much for being you. Please don't ever change.
