WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) -- A lesbian cadet asked to resign from the U.S. Military Academy because she said she can no longer lie about her sexuality and was troubled by the anti-gay attitudes of some around her.
Katherine Miller of Findlay, Ohio, also said she wants to fight for repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" law, a subject she was studying and writing about as a sociology major at West Point.

Gay is a sexual construct, lifestyle and behavior. When the US gives gays the special rights of minority dominance over the targets, look out. Sexual aggression is not pretty, especially when it is homo men dominating heterosexual men. Check any prison for proof. They are going to rape the shit out of our society.
Well, 7 courses a semester is indeed a load, though its rigor would be diminished with such crib courses as sociology. Sociology is a kumbaya discipline, and I think “discipline” in that respect is too strong a word.
Yeah, geez, it would be a lot cheaper if she’d just get a boyfriend and fake it for a while.
Gosh, didn’t she understand the “don’t ask don’t tell” situation in the military before she signed up?
Looks like she was too stupid to make it there or else she would have known she should have gone to an all girls school in the first place.
It used to be "the love that dare not speak it's name." Today, it's "the love that won't shut the hell up."
I believe the fact she concealed her homosexuality is considered a breach of the Honor Code and would disqualify her from the Point- also from reinstatement even if they change the policy.
She should not be allowed to resign - she should be brought up on honor violation charges and dismissed as the self-proclaimed liar that she is.
You're a cadet, not a "soldier" until you're commissioned as a 2LT.
But she wrote of being "coerced into ignoring derogatory comments towards homosexuals for fear of being alienated for my viewpoint" and that she "endured sexual harassment for fear of being accused as a lesbian."
If you have to resign over crap like that, you don't deserve to be an officer.
And she ‘lied to her classmates and compromised her integrity’ by going into this knowing full well the consequences, and by even contemplating re-application for the 2011-2012 academic year. The worst of it she took up the place of some other more honorable citizen willing to commit to the ideals of West Point and the ethical code of the military.
No sense of honor or integrity, just a politically-motivated publicity whore trying to make points and get some headlines, with absolutely no sense of honor or duty to country. she has no place in anyone’s military, at any level, much less as an officer.
Makes me want to puke.
Sociology Major? What an astounding waste of taxpayers’ money. I thought you had to have a hard science major at West Point.
I noticed that too...pathetic.
Yes.... her ass looks big in that uniform...
“I Say Again” (always heard over the public loudspeaker at West Point when instructions are given to cadets)
You do have a “science” major. You carry another “major” in addition. Check the West Point website to see how they overload the cadets, and how many credits they end up with at graduation.
Most “college age kids” couldn’t handle it, honestly. Particularly when you understand how small the class sizes are, and how hard it is to show up for class “unprepared”. You can’t!
And, you can’t cheat, either.
“a subject she was studying and writing about as a sociology major at West Point.”
First, her resignation just shows that DADT is a success. But sociology at West Point? Give me a break!!
Decided to troll more productive waters?
>>> the first two years are free if you elect to not start your third year. At the beginning of your third year - at all the service academies - you have to sign a contract, which obligates you to active duty
As is so often the case in these gay threads, most people seem to be going off... uhhhh, half cocked.
Olddeckhand shows this is the decision time. My first question would be how many cadets drop out at this stage. Is this one young lady unique, or simply one of some number of people who change their mind.
If there are others, and I’m confident there are, I’d assume they have various reasons for not choosing to pursue graduation. Unsurprising a reporter would find and focus on the one who didn’t like the DADT policy, and unsurprising so many take the bait.
What a coincidence. She realizes she has “compromised her integrity and identity” right at the deadline after receiving 2 FREE years of a college education. This is a scam. Now she can go to Yale and get her 4-year degree and only pay for two years. The military and the taxpayer are being taken for fools. West Point should send her a bill for those two years and then change their policy to avoid con artists like her.
Go read history. The Bible. Gay lit from ancient times. That is EXACTLY what they do. RAPE. It consumes them until nothing but rage driven lust remains. All love, compassion, hope, and reason are lost to it.
And we are not ABLE to undo it. No society has ever put that genie back in the bottle. They all DIED an ugly death.
Prepare for what is coming and do not look back.
