The real issue with DADT is whether the discussion is about status or behavior. A soldier just being gay is not problematic, but if he knows he can’t be discharged for it, will that lead to wearing makeup in uniform, applying it in the latrine, sex in the barracks, sex in showers and overtly effeminate behavior? Admittedly, most homosexuals don’t or won’t engage in the overt objectionable behavior (many don’t at all) but it will only take a few. Watch the gay pride parades and consider how that “in your face” behavior will be received in a barracks setting. Flaunting the most disgusting behavior seems to be the trademark of some (not all) gays.
How many homosexuals are going to demand promotion in rank to increase their representation? When are they going to establish a GBLT social group on base? etc.
The lawsuits will only begin from the act up crowd if this goes through.
