    Take that, doubters & haters! Watch how the haters about the repeal process are going to sound as if they knew all along, or say that he's pandering to the LGBT community. icon_rolleyes.gif

    The repeal will take effect when I have 4 weeks left in Afghanistan. And then I can claim that I beat DADT!!! I wonder how many of my good buddies are going to ask me if I'm gay. I need to prepare for that.

    I've already prepared my speech.

    "Yeah you know all those stories I told you about my girlfriend and stuff? Well it was all true, I just really meant my boyfriend."

    I'm hoping that will be enough. I did come out to a lot of people over the past 3 years including the team i'm deployed with now, but back at the Unit no one knows.

    they'll just have to understand that the deception came with the territory of DADT. Now that its gone I don't have to hide anymore. And should they not invite me out to drink with them anymore, so be it.

    One step forward finally for our military. I remember watching a broadcast video from Military.com of Marine leaders giving the DADT briefing and one Marine said something that kinda urked me for some reason. It was something like "Ok, so my religion is being put aside just so gay Marines can walk around being open about their sexuality?"

    I'm thinking STFU with that horse shit spewing from your filthy sewer (yes I just quoted Full Metal Jacket, lol). Just cuz we have a bunch of insecure homophobes in the military doesn't mean they're going to be fully accommodated. Plus it's not like homosexuals are going to prance around, struttin their stuff once DADT gets the ax. >__>

    Yeah, we had an ignorant fuck like that when the new Sergeant Major of the Army visited. He was complaining that gays are "going to take advantage of the benefits", like it was something being taken away from him. I swear, the ignorant don't think; they just speak.

    It reminds me of when the Royal Navy allowed women to serve at sea.My niece heard all sorts of prejudice and ignorance from some guys.
    But they`re getting over that,and the Navy hasn`t failed,etc.
