Reality: DADT protects homosexual service as long as the soldier is discrete and does not walk around announcing his/her homoseuality and/or holding his/her same-sex friend’s hand—or worse.
Repealing DADT, IMO, will result in making homosexuals more vulnerable to verbal and/or physical abuse.
Heteros are proscribed from any unbecoming behavior while in uniform —both on and off post/base. This includes sexual misbehavior. Not sure what homosexuals gain here. I guess repealing DADT would open up military housing and benefits to homosexual couples. That, of course would be big for them. Unfortunately it may also make them targets .
DADT may get repealed, but the UCMJ(uniform code of military justice) still forbids homosexuality....I’m not sure what the Gays gain here. Recruiters again will be able to ask up front if a prospective recruit is gay and backgrounds can again be checked. The UCMJ code needs to be changed, which I would hope it doesn’t!
My brother in law was in Vietnam. He said the Sarge was a real a-hole at the base, but once in combat, he was the nicest guy in the world. He knew they all had weapons.
On the battle field, all the heterosexuals who are going to be harassed by homos will have weapons. They'll be the ones "watching the homo's back."
Karma can be a real bitch sometimes.
