    I makes you want to cry! DADT is barbaric and shameful!

    Back in the 70's my friend W. asked me if I would go out with a friend of his and I didn't want to do it, I hate 'blind' dates. When he explained to me that it would save the the young man's  career. You see, my friend was gay and his friend, an officer in the US military was also gay. At the time I had no idea a person, being gay in the military, could be send to jail. My first vote as a young adult was to get rid of the German gay law (paragraph 175)so I agreed to go out with this young man and we 'dated' for a few months until another girl took over and I went on 'dating' others in the same situation.
