    Gays in the military (its anonymous)

    Voice your true thoughts here. This poll is anonymous so you can vote no if you choose so, obviously, as you are entitled to but please try and post an explanation too and why you think its important such a law is or isn't allowed.

    Lastly, wouldn't people who dislike gays want them in the army? Its the best way to kill them off.

    Vote!

    There's no poll. But I support the repeal of don't ask/don't tell. And so does my boyfriend, who is in the Navy reserves.

    I'm entirely fine with gays in the military, there have always been gays, there will always be gays, they deserve to be able to serve their country just like anyone else.

    Frankly, the reason lots of people have given, that the military is too butch to deal with it, is a fairly pathetic excuse. The fact that lots of military men (and women too, I suppose) are homophobic is a sign of their immaturity and emotional stagnation, certainly not something to be proud of.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Great post, I wholeheartedly agree (I thought just thanking you was insufficient).

    I don't see what the fuss is. In fact, I look forward to seeing the military allow gay marriage as a normal thing hopefully within the next 10 years. This would be a sign of progress.

    ***** The reason Barry is raising this issue again - like NOW - is because he is reeling from other issues and even has the Leftist base that initially got him going in 2007 disillusioned - so he throws them a little bit of Social Progress or Social Engineering . Short haul little impact - Long haul counterproductive.

    ***** In 1993 then JCS Chief Colin Powell advised the then new President Bill Clinton about implementing this . Clinton backed away . Yesterday Powell mentioned that things and times hasd changed


    ***** Was this a reflection on Manpwer or a reluctance to bring up a NO Win issue that will hurt Obama with some ????? Powell's late endorsement of Obama one Sunday in 2008 is remembered for the lowclass act it clearly was and yesterdays reversal on this subject naturally brings on suspicion.

    I'm grateful that Barack Obama is finally delivering on this campaign promise. It's definitely time, and most Americans support this, even though some are still stuck in the fear of the dark ages.

    I forget the source, but I was searching data in another thread on this topic, and learned that there is an estimated over 1 million gay veterans alive in this country, who have served since Korea. Gays are already in the military. We should encourage all people to serve, and to take pride in both their service, and who they are.

    ***** Once being Gay is okayed by the Military THEN it brings up other issues like Housing for example. Sure some Gays have been in the Military always and others who are not Gay take an easy discharge after a year or so by allowing themselves to be Classified as Homosexual - but IF attraction to Same Sex is OK and people live in close confines - then WHY NOT both sex's together all the time (??)


    ****** In the past 3 decades more problems than revealed have taken place in the Military from the inclusion of larger & larger amounts of Women . Men with Good careers got tempted and cashiered because of it YEYT now we put open individuals admitting their attracted to some they live in close confines with - but that's just fine


    ***** No way this gets digested easily - and more and more will get covered up.
