Liberals DEMANDING US soldiers with foot fetishes to serve OPENLY View another article

That's not exactly true, but it might as well be. Liberals might not have received the memo, but under current DADT (Don't Ask, Don't Tell) policy, gays are allowed in the military without any problem.

They just can't be OPENLY gay.

Don't ask, don't tell. I'm sure there have been tons of gays in the military before DADT, there are tons now, and there will be tons in the future. DADT just means don't be openly gay, but you're still welcome to serve. DADT doesn't purge the military of gays or make it illegal to be gay in the military.

For a good number of gay soldiers, isn't it fairly obvious to most non-gay soldiers who is and who is not gay? Gaydar or not, most guys can at least suspect when a man is gay. I'm guessing most women can as well.

Since there are gay soldiers currently in the military, and most non-gay soldiers can identify them, and heterosexual soldiers are not drumming them out of the service left and right...what exactly is the problem with the current policy for gays in the military?

And really, in the military, do we really need to be openly...whatever? Does everyone in a submarine need to know that soldier x like to be choked when having sex, or soldier y likes bondage, or soldier z has a foot fetish? What does that have to do with their job? Are liberals demanding for any soldier with a foot fetish to be able to serve openly?

In most companies in the private sector, although the written policy is not "don't ask, don't tell", most companies would frown on people airing their personal sexual preferences. Why? It has nothing germane with what they were hired to do. No one cares nor wants to know.

The US military is much like a very large, organized, company. People are hired to perform a job. It's not a Gay Pride Parade, it's not a place where anyone wants to know nor needs to know what your sexual preferences are. No one really cares that you're gay, it's not relevant to the task at hand.

No one wants to know you fooled around with your cousin when you were 14, that you wet the bed when you were 10, that you like the feel of cashmere. These are all personal private matters that have no business in public.

DADT is a reasonable, common-sense policy; repealing it makes no sense and would be counter-productive to the efficiency of the military.
