    Anti-theses.-- The most senile thing ever thought about man is contained in the celebrated saying 'the ego is always hateful'; the most childish is the even more celebrated 'love thy neighbor as thyself'. -- In the former, knowledge of human nature has ceased, in the latter it has not yet even begun.

    from Nietzsche's Assorted Opinions and Maxims,s. 385, R.J. Hollingdale transl.

    I found most of the statements in the 'comments' disappointing. We are referred to as "creeps". Some of them think that inclusion of openly gay people in the military would mean straight guys having gays leer at them in the shower and in the rack.

    They don't realize that gays are already there, the repeal of DADT would simply allow them to be open about who they are if they choose.



    How sad.
