Ok so I want a real debate started. How do you feel about the fact that they are talking about doing away with the policy and allowing gays to openly serve in the military?
I'm torn. I do believe that gays should not have to hide who they are just because they want to serve their country. HOWEVER having been in the Army myself I also know that they will become targets. There are still people (mostly males) that don't believe that they should serve and will make any gay in their unit a living hell. Sad but true. I also know of PLENTY of gays that do serve and have done great things in the military but had to hide who they truly were and were miserable because of it.
Regardless of HOW you feel about gays...do you think that they should be allowed to be who they are and not have to hide just to do something that they feel strongly in which is serve their country!
