    DADT isn't an objective to protect the straight members of the military. It protects gay members. If someone was in certain battalions and was an out gay, I would not be shocked when news of that person's assault or death began circulating. There would be no witnesses and even if someone had the bravery to step forward, the aggressors would walk and the witness would have a string of bad luck. That is a different world and gay just isn't welcomed anywhere within.

    DADT allows gays to enter the military and forces them to be quiet about their sexuality, which is protecting themselves. If DADT were repealed and no laws were in place specifically protecting gay soldiers, the good ole boy types would have a new hobby and it wouldn't be gay friendly.

    Pretty sure the standard "don't kill your fellow soldiers" law already in place would do the trick.

    Gays don't need special protection. Regular protection would be fine. I point to other countries who have allowed gays to serve openly as a template. The attitude in the US will have to change, and conflict arising from that is unavoidable.

    Gays protected under the current rules? Naivete at it's best!

    Someone hasn't spent much time with the US military. Pointing to other countries doesn't mean anything here. When it comes to gays, tolerance is very low, in every area, throughout the ranks. Even those who aren't homophobic tend not to say so, because of the overall mentality. Those current laws, that protect everyone, would be skirted in a heartbeat, everything swept under the rug. Many would see it as a message to stay out and do whatever they could to assist in making sure no one was punished.

    Repeal DADT with no supplementary laws expressly in the interest of openly gay soldiers. Let's see how many people end up in infirmaries or coffins, their assailants never found, before it becomes clear what DADT really did. If high school for gay people is torture, the military for an openly gay person will be the 10th ring of hell.

    ^^ You're talking about a country that elected Dubya TWICE and almost made Palin vice-president. Backwards doesn't even begin to describe parts of America

    Take a look at the most offensive republicans. Backwoods clodhoppers. Just think of McCain's hidden fury and imagine him cloned a million times. Voila! Military!

    ^^^
    that's probably true.
    that's why part of me always thought only psychos and assholes join the army or become cops.
    i know it's not true for all of them, but i'm willing to bet the percentage of psychos and assholes is much higher in the army than in the general population.
