I don't like to be that blogger that feels the need to get my two cents into every national issue here, thinking people just can't wait to read what Chris thinks about this or that. Other bloggers can do that, and frankly I don't have the time or the ego to think everyone cares what I think about everything.
So I stayed away from DADT, mostly because its an issue that doesn't bother me much. But I do think that the time has come to get rid of this policy. If someone wants to volunteer, go through the excrutiating process of getting through basic, and perhaps even die for our flag - I'm not going to stand in their way just because they are attracted to men rather than women. I also think its pretty ridiculous to think that just because your gay, you somehow can't control your sexual impulses is frankly kind of insulting. And from what my brother has told me about the army, straight soldiers need to look in the mirror when it comes to fraternization.
I do understand those who are against this, but it comes down to volunteering to serve the country. I think it might be a generation thing, and I also think there is no real way to guage how the military troops look at this, because their job is to obey the president, the secretary of defense, and their superiors.
I don't know, it might just be me. I've known some gay people and really its just not a big deal to me.
