I didn't live in them, I don't know the answer to that.

I think what you are getting at though is that women and people with dark skin had no choice in being what they are, and equating homosexual behavior as something one doesn't choose to be.

I don't ever get involved in that debate, as its usually what causes the most division and yes hatred on both sides. Some people's religous convictions tell them that its wrong, and that it is infact a choise, and they shouldn't support people or organizations that condone homosexual behavior. Whether or not they are right or wrong I don't know. I do know that thier religeous beliefs do not make thier service any less honorable, and if we give them the chance to get out when we repeal DADT I would not think less of them if they choose to take it.

All I am saying is that we should decide beforehand under what conditions we allow those people to leave the service.
