DADT - Wink, Wink, Nod, Nod
I am having a hard time with DADT.
On one hand I understand that there may be some that are uncomfortable sharing space with one attracted to the same gender. On the other hand, I get to share space with people I am uncomfortable with every day.
True, I am not rooming, bunking, showering and working with these people. Even having roommates in college that got on my nerves, I could still get out of the apartment and go somewhere without said "offending" person - taking a break.
Military folk most times are not afforded a break.
Sexuality is private. Sexuality should not keep one from doing ones job. My sexuality may be none of any ones business unless I want to make it so. Still, do I need to hide it in order to work, or live or fight?
I want to tread carefully when it comes to fighting men and women who are protecting my rights and freedoms. I respect them and their space. But aren't these kind of freedoms the very thing they are fighting for and protecting?
What say you?
