All this is PROPAGANDA. They DO NOT need to say they are GAY to serve in the military, it is nonsense. How is this any different than having men and women showing together. If you are gay and showering with men any different than being a lesbo and showering with women.
Being a Military member, I can tell you that DADT was a blessing to a gay Service member. Just wait till they see the regulations that being a Open Gay member will entail, they'll wish it was back to the way it was before. It will be so easy for them to be accused of harassment and charged under UCMJ. All they have to do is look at a straight member and they'll be prosecuted. In the past a member was presumed to not be gay, because being gay was not allowed, now they can be persumed to be gay, because it's allowed.
The Military is not a place for Social Experiments. It has a job to do and that does not include making people happy about their sexuality.There are 1,000's of jobs in the military and some places a gay might fit, but not in Combat Arms. 1 out of 10 never fire a weapon except on a range.
You take 9 straight soldier's in a rifle squad and put in one openly gay man, you have a problem and they won't last long. Life in the military is about cohesion, this will not take place with a gay person, it's about being willing to give your life for another. Sometimes this has to occur in a very short period of time. Example : you lose 3 men in a firefight, the next day you receive 3 replacements. Those replacements have to bond and be accepted instantaneously, because that same day you might be in battle again. Been there done that and I'll tell you, when your life is on the line, you do what you have to do and you'll not let someone else get you killed, you take action. Misfits do not last, be it someone from the ghetto in Detroit, a gay from Atlanta or a pot smoker from Podunk.
In 17 Years of DADT the Military has removed 13,000 Gays or People who acted or said they were Gay ( 750 a year adv.) during the same period of time they released 57,000 for flat feet. During the same 17 years 3 Million have joined the Military.
Get it ?? There is / was no problem, except for some faag looking for a new hunting ground.
Frankly its ridiculous. It should never have had to be an issue
