they all follow orders and train the same. Think the enemy will know if he got shot by a gay or a straight fellow? I don't think so.

Actually, that'll be an advantage to the Pentagon, it creates a demoralizing effect on the enemy lines.

But the real reasons of the right-wing military sector is that they're uncomfortable with gays guys and girls mingling among them... Just like those Christian Military Academies in Colorado who have a distinctive hatred for Jewish American soldiers.

But here's something I brought up to WA Sen. Murray to repeal DADT: I knew a navy SEAL operative (name confidential) who is a closeted homosexual; but his excellent combat skills can bring down 3 straight guys at the same time.

welll demoralizing effect would also be between men and women who are straight through gender roles.......but, what you shared about your Navy SEAL friend isnt surprising......also, i would like to add that if not behind enemy lines( which seems to be a big gripe) what about gay soldiers who aren't behind enemy lines? do they stay closeted cause some homosexuals are in the battle feild?

This is just my opinion - if you are a homosexual in the military, I don't think having some homosexuals in the battle field should be a reason for non-combatant gay soldiers to be closeted. It's up to the individual, but I should ask them to be wary though (especially the gay men), they have to keep a keen eye on their surroundings and the environment of their Quarters if it's safe to be openly gay; even if DADT is repealed, and illegal for the military to discharge someone for being gay - you can't help but think that there will be some discrimination from other cadets and even other officers.

By the way, congratulations!

i forget the states, but we have more friendly fire then ever before...the only thing about the repeal of don't ask don't tell is that we may see even more "friendly fire". Ignorance isn't that easy to chase away.

lol no problem jon

yeah jesus i agree it should be up too the individual and yeah some gays may still be tossed out for being true to who they are....but have any straight ppl been kicked out for talking about their sexuality....i haven't heard of any....its a rule that only applies to one group....but even if repealed yes, there still be some ignorant douchebag to find a reason to discriminate against someone
Comment by V John Merc on October 21, 2010 at 3:20am
That's true; discrimination only happens (for now) in the homosexual community because being straight has been the 'norm'. There's still hope for them in the Military. They have to stay close to the people they trust (whether they're gay or straight, too). Gays need to back one another and support each other while being in the military. I know it won't be easy for them, especially when they know their friend is straight, they have to think carefully and be mindful of their ideals and personality - if its safe to tell their friend, "I'm gay" - Because not all straight guys in the military are inconsiderate bastards. There are a lot, but not all.
