  1. Personally I’d tell them to shove it. Why be somewhere your not wanted and Homophobia is rampant.

    If your sexuality makes you not good enough to go and die for someone’s war then what a world it is.

    I personally couldant be in the military if openly gay, as I don’t trust they would have my back in the field.

    1. I hope you are referring to being openly gay in the British military, because if you are you are being completely paranoid, our servicemen and women are absolutely professional and I think you would be hard pressed to find one that is not.

    So was the only reason they dropped the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was so they could just reject people openly LGBT before they even get started?

    Sounds like it to me.

    1. Or they are just following procedure, they can’t just do what they please there is a policy in place they aren’t allowed to ignore, even if they want to. And considering what Lieutenant Colonel Sherri Reed has said about her they clearly want her back, but they are just going to have to bide their time.

        But they are still using the ‘them and us’ argument instead of respecting those who wish to stand and protect their country. I admit I don’t understand what procedure but then we are all human beings why the procedure in the first place. What are they worried about?

        1. No, they aren’t. They are following orders, which they have to. They aren’t to blame, the people at the top are. Of course I agree with you she should be accepted. And I don’t think you will find they are worried about having openly gay people serve or they wouldn’t have made it clear she can come back once the ban is fully lifted.

  3. the lgbt cadett, is going to have to get with the aclu and other people and who are lgbt attorneys and not on the take and sue the militdary and i mean sue the military for harrasment and discriminations and hate crimes enacted on their person , take action =now
