  •  This is exactly what's happening IMO (5+ / 0-)

    We are ashamed.  We were supposed to be beyond this.  The majority of us voted that the repeal of DADT would not affect the job or our families in any profound negative way.  The military has a strong collective identity.  We can't believe we are still phucking this specific issue up this badly,  we don't want to be....how can we be?  But that is part of seeing the film, facing that we really are.  The military isn't simply a bunch of assholes and their blissfully self absorbed ignorant spouses.  If that were true DADT would have been an internal shitstorm.
