That's the solution I was sort of referencing, and your response goes to show exactly the point I was trying to make. Don't ask, don't tell is a policy that has worked, so why remove it?
Now stop this bull**** of, "Oh it doesn't affect you." I pay for it and it exists to protect me. If it isn't affecting me, then why the **** do we even have a military? It better be affecting me. If it isn't, then it isn't doing its job.
Further, there is no evidence that DADT is better policy than allowing gays to serve openly, and evidence of the reverse. I believe gays are still better educated than the average, and some are in pretty important jobs, and can loose that job to triviality. We want people to want to serve their country, we do not want to drive off those who can serve the country admirably and well.
