End Don't Ask Don't Tell

If you want to serve, who cares what gender the person in your bed is?

A House panel weighed overturning the military's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy Wednesday, the first time Congress has considered the rule since it was implemented 15 years ago.

The policy, adopted in 1993, allows gay and lesbian individuals to serve in the armed forces as long as they do not publicly engage in homosexual behavior. The law also prevents military leaders from asking a service member about his or her sexual orientation.

In the near future some kid is going to ask his dad: "You mean they really stopped people for serving their country, not because they couldn't perform the job but because they were gay? That's dumb."
