I see one of the automatically generated ads on my blog is from the Democratic National Committee, asking you to call your senator to repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
I really appreciate the advertising revenue--but as things now stand, DADT is really more like, "Don't Ask, Don't Be Fabulous." There are some rare cases, such as the Air Force pilot at Mountain Home Air Force Base, who sexual orientation came out during a criminal investigation of an acquaintance. But strictly speaking, he did not "tell." He was required to tell by a criminal investigation--he did not go out and make a noise about it.
There are many gay people serving in the armed forces. They have chosen to put service to their country above making a big noise about their sexual orientation. I appreciate them for what must be, at times, a bit of a sacrifice. What I will not appreciate is if repealing DADT means a bunch of gay activists join the military just to "be fabulous" as a way of making a point.
