Its about Actions NOT Orientation

It matters not about the sexual orientation of the soldier.

What does matter is if the soldier whether heterosexual or homosexual proceedes in acting promiscuously or violates another individuals rights via rape or any other sexual crime.

If heterosexuals were having an orgy on base with prostitutes or if a barracks of lesbians were having a sex party both acts are deplorable and those guilty should be punished.

But contrary to the biggots, those of us in the LGBT community who wish to see DADT lifted do so as we would like for those soldiers who are in combat to speak openly about mail received from a partner or to send notice of the death to their partner without risking losing the benefits earned by their service.

So those who prefer to debase the argument with hyperbole and attempt to link the LGBT community to detestable acts resulting in the violation of a child need to grow up or at least attempt to develop an intellect.

Gays and Lesbians bleed the same red blood when killed in the line of combat. And why it is beyond me why my friends in the LGBT community would be willing to fight for this nation both based on the aggressive foreign policy and the fact that the Armed Services hetero-superiority, they should be allowed to serve w/o contemplating how best to hide their lives as they offer to sacrifice for their country.
