I come from a large military family with many of my relatives now serving. The repeal of DADT has and will continue to do more damage to the gays and make them far, FAR worse off then they were previously.
Soldiers who wwere disgusted by the gay life style and those who lived it will not change, but where before they did not knowingly have to come in contact with them so what they didn’t know didn’t bother them. Now that the gays feel free to identify themselves as such the soldiers who are not fans are fully aware of them and will adjust their behavior accordingly.
In the enlisted ranks almost no straight soldier will ever allow a known gay to place their hands on him in the normal ways this occurs when soldiers horse around. Almost no gay soldier will ever be seen in a group of soldiers out boozing it up because once they get a few in them most of these guys will say what’s on their minds and their will be trouble. No gay will be permitted in the shower when a straight soldier is in there and no straight soldier will enter a shower while there is a gay in there. Gays will be told when they can shower and they will listen. If they choose to complain of their treatment they will have no witnesses and their complaint will get them nowhere but a session we used to refer to as “midnight counseling”, which will quickly cure them of the bad habit of running to the brass.
They will (and are) more completely isolated then they were before because many will feel, wrongly, that because the law has changed so to have the feelings of the people involved and that is simply not true.
Their biggest loss is the ability for them to simply declare they are gay and get out of the service with an honorable discharge (general under honorable conditions). But with the repeal of DADT they have lost this option and after they out themselves and see what they have let themselves in for they have nowhere to go and will spend what time they have left stuck in isolation among their own kind.
I am not predicting this will happen I am stating it is happening now and I have this first hand
