It is just wrong. An individuals sexual preference has nothing to do with the ability to competently defend our country. The ones who have a problem with it are the close-minded individual who wrongly believe the presence of a homosexual will jeopardize safety is some stupid capacity.

I feel that THIS girl knew when she went in that this was the policy and that if she didnt like it she should have waited to join till the law was changed (fight it) or not join at all. No one made her join. She chose it. Its her choice to quit. I think that the decision of dont ask dont tell should be left up to those in the military that fully understand the ramifications of it not being in place. Also, as someone said in a PP a while back, you cant legislate acceptance and those that are rude are ALWAYS going to be rude. Just like women get sexually harassed by other soldiers all the time. They arent supposed to do it. It still happens.

DADT also only applies to homosexuals. Heterosexuals have no such constraints, but their sexual preference is on display through dating choices, marriages, families while homosexual military personel must deny such companionship or risk losing what they have worked for. It is unfair and discriminatory. My best friend is gay--after being friends for 30 years she told me last year. My response--well, I guess it is time for me to tell you...I'm straight! She laughed at the absurdity of that statement and I personally find the regulation of personal disclosure to be ludicrous. It has nothing to do with the ability to complete a job, perform a duty, fulfill an obligation, defend a nation, or be a good person. The private activities that take place between two consenting adults is no one else's business. (I can't promise rant over--this issue really irks me!)
