I agree with the Nine Circus. If its permitted for gays to marry, then there's no reason they have who they are in the U.S military. I've always thought "don't ask, don't tell" is morally offensive. Its the equivalent of a lie and doesn't change the fact that you are who you are but you not allowed to acknowledge it.

There are some pretty good reasons not to allow homosexuals to serve -- like the sexual privacy of the heterosexual military personnel. I'm sure quite a few don't want to have room, shower, undress in front of or share a foxhole with someone that might have sexual attract to them.
