I agree, so flame me too. DADT is a bad policy for both those who are pro and anti-gays serving in the military. Military discipline must be strictly enforced regardless of gender or anything else.

I want to make it clear, I do not necessarily agree with todays vote. I just don't think that is going to be the end of the world either.
So many people, myself included, have friends or family members that are gay that coming here and reading some of the infantile things that get posted is insulting. I also know, as the mother of a straight, college age student, that being gay really isn't as looked down upon, as with the older generation. Whether homosexuality is a sin (and I think it is) or not, I just don't see it as a sin that it is my place to decide. I think adultery and divorce are much graver sins, as they tend to harm many more people than something two adults may or may not do in the privacy of their own homes.

Obviously you do not have a clue. If you served it could not have been recent. You have no idea the problems the military faces because in the name of political correctness and the acquiescence of people like you, the barracks are no longer segregated by sexes. MILLONS of your tax dollars are being spent yearly to treat STDs from casual sex in barracks. Now you think it is OK to add a third and fourth sex to the mix? 30% plus higher STD rate among gay males. Oh and we cannot kick people out for HIV anymore. Obviously If you have an STD/HIV you cannot go to war, travel to certain countries so they fill stateside billets while real men are dying overseas. You will now spend BILLIONS in health care and VA benefits for men with torn rectums, AIDS and other gay related medical conditions. I do not care if a person prefers gay sex but they do not belong in the military serving openly. And just how do you suggest the military enforce discipline and prevent a male from going into a males room, when they cannot stop females and males. How about the young man who comes home after a hard day of training or a week of sleeping in the cold and mud to find his roommate and another man playing hide the salami? If he says anything other gays will beat him, IT HAPPENS NOW, and you think it is OK to make that legit.
Allowing a sexual element into the military is what is bad policy.
