Don't Ask, Don't Tell
I am one of the very few that I see that is FOR it. Everyone throws out there about "Gay Rights".. yadda yadda.. But It's not that easy- not in a military environment.
This is how I see it. What is the problem with the system now? I don't see a problem, I know other's may disagree, But I feel- "If is aint broke, don't fix it"!
As I'm writing this, I'm pushing aside my belief on whether I think homosexual relationships are right or wrong. That's not what this is about.
When you apply for a civilian job, They do not ask on the application if you are gay or straight. Why should they for military? System works just fine for civilians.. and it works pretty well for the military too in my opinion.
But that's not the Problem I see. The problem I see is this:
If the military does away with "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" they will be forced to change a lot of things. For example: On the Navy ships, You cannot have a gay men with gay men in a berthing, for the same reasons you cannot have Men and women together in the same berthing. It's the same for Lesbians, you cannot have them with other lesbians. And personally, if I were in the Navy, I wouldn't want to change in front of someone who is openly gay, and have them looking at me the way a man would- but that's just me. Also, For those who are bisexual, how would that work? hmm.. Can't have one person to a room- not on a ship. If it's not openly put out there, then no one will act upon their urges.
>>Edit: YES, I know there are currently Gays sharing berthings.. BUT if they do away with DADT, they will HAVE to separate them, which is virtually impossible.
Do I think they should get kicked out for being gay, No. As far as benefits and what not.. I'm not going to comment on that because that gets me on a whole different Tangent on if I believe in gay marriage or not. And well That I'm going to leave to myself, and my religion on that one.<<
If they do away with it.. there will be problems.. or atleast I see a lot of problems! But hey, this is just what I think. You can choose to agree, or choose not to. That's why God gave us an opinion- This is mine.
