A few minutes ago my partner and I watched the "60 Minutes" segment related to the military selectively ignoring "don't ask, don't tell" for highly needed jobs, e.g., medics, translators. One armed service member cooperated with his superiors in an investigation of himself, provided photos, videos of he and his boyfriend, and the conclusion of the investigation was: "Go back to work, you're not gay." I know there are a lot of RJ members that are/were members of the armed services during the DADT era. How has the policy been enforced? Selectively? My partner believes "It's all right to be gay, just don't act on it" My belief is "It's ok to be gay and act on it as long as you don't acknowledge being gay."
