We're sworn to uphold the constitution and that document protects our essential rights. Sexual orientation doesn't affect your ability to raise your right hand and take the oath of enlistment to defend this country. Why I feel DADT shouldn't matter is because when you're off duty and off base, what you do is your business but at the same time we're all expected to hold ourselves to a higher standard. Like, being a member of the Armed Forces we're supposed to be the cream of the crop, the absolute best America has to offer. So as such of course we shouldn't be out acting an idiot on weekends and getting into trouble, we're allowed to have private lives but have to uphold standards. Where I see there potentially being problems with the abolition of DADT is the possibility of creating the attitude of flaunting your homosexuality out in public if it were suddenly not an issue and I draw the line there. You shouldn't be flaunting your heterosexuality out in public either, like I don't go around making out with my wife and acting innapropriate in town because you're supposed to set the standard, you know? I just feel if DADT was done away with it might give people the excuse to act a fool and create a PR nightmare for us who serve.
That being said, gays who serve in the military should be happy with DADT, in my opinion. It's not like the US Military says you can't serve if you're gay, and we all have the right to our private lives.
