Strangely enough, however, I would expect a sizable percentage of the gay servicemembers to stay completely away from these events and would even go so far as to say that a good portion of them haven’t even come “out”.
If Romney wins in November, he’s going to be under a huge amount of pressure to reverse this policy. And he could easily do it, too. All he would have to do is conduct an all-service referendum, restricted solely to persons in uniform.
GIven the opportunity, the uniformed members of the Armed Forces would kick out the homosexuals and slam the door shut so fast it would make your head swim.
Were that to occur, the homosexuals who had been celebrating their new found acceptance would be SOL, while the quiet ones who kept their perversions to themselves wouldn’t be bothered at all.
Seriously. I don’t think this can stand as a policy. The troops are not going to tolerate it.

You may find it very difficult to put the toothpaste back into the tube. Lawyers will be grinning.
