Some here may have missed the point of the discussion. What's being debated is the repeal of the policy known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". Some here seem to be under the impression that there are no gay people serving right now, and that this policy somehow keeps gay people from serving. No.
Homosexual Americans serve in that uniform with the same pride, dignity and dedication as any heterosexual. This policy forces our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines to be dishonest on a day-to-day basis with those with whom they have to serve. THAT hurts cohesion, not their private lives.
This policy is on its way out, thankfully. Americans who volunteer to be shot at, for me, will have my always have my support.
