Don't Ask Don't Tell Me

Obama stayed on his word to repeal the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy for the U.S. Armed Forces. Mike Mullan, The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff proclaimed that service members should not be forced to "lie about who they are." Joint Chief’s Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen said that they should study for a year the impact before the controversial policy is withdrawn by Congress. Admiral Mike Mullen said there were practical problems in repealing the policy where members had to conceal their sexual orientation if they were homosexual. Like I have said before, if the soldier is professional, then what is the issue? The ones against it say it goes against 'cohesion,' it is already against 'cohesion,' if they want to keep 'cohesion' with straight people, then don't let gay people out forever. But yes, there is the argument that if gay people were open in the military, that would let crazy bigots beat and kill them (which has happened before, even on a soldier that was never confirmed to be same-sex orientated). It is just hilarious how these old stuffy heterosexuals get mad at this. It is like they don't want to appear weak in front of other nations, but it has to do with Gender, like women in the service before.
