DADT - Newest Info!!! May 1st is the DAY!!!

Well, it looks like I was right - As Dept of Defense gets ready to have May 1, 2011 as the day DADT officially goes away and the doors open to GLB people for enlistment into the military, they are training their troops en-mass.

For hours troops will sit in a classroom to find out the following:

  • Gays can openly serve in all branches of service effective 01 May 2011.
  • People who have been discharged for "Homosexuality" can re-enter service.  Any other discharge narratives are on a case by case basis.
  • Gays/Lesbians  & Bisexuals will be able to wear what they want - OUT of uniform.  In uniform the standards always apply.
  • There will be no tolerance of public display's of affection in uniform.
  • Hazing / Harassment will not be tolerated.
  • Gay Marriages / Civil Ordinances will not be recognized by the DOD.
  • GLB can claim children, but not lovers as dependents.  Life insurance policies can be left to lovers.
  • The Uniform Code of Military Justice WILL NOT be changing.  Article 125: Sodomy will still be an active and enforceable law.  Sodomy is considered to include Oral or Anal Sex. (Even among consenting Spouses.)  There are times when straight military members are given disciplinary action because they have violated this Law with their spouse.  How does someone get prosecuted for this?  There are pictures/video, and one spouse gets mad at the other and presents them as evidence.  Without photographic evidence, military commanders and investigators will NOT pursue disciplinary action.  (Unless they witness it themselves.)

So - how does this affect you?  Sound off below!


  1. Damn, well this is a step in the RIGHT direction for once. About time. Yes, and as for the sodomy laws, PUH-LEASE. We can do what we want with our bodies, that is fucking ridiculous, but I have heard about these sex laws in many areas of the south. IMBECILIC!

    Our government is pretty much worthless at this point, but fortunately, some people's minds will open up a bit and change as the government endorses the reality and rights of the LGBT community. Someday, EQUAL marriage. And so it may be!

  2. Keeping the Sodomy law is the Military's way of saying "Fine, you can serve openly, but don't think we'll support your sex life."

    And the south is full of stupid laws, but amazingly enough there are still a ton of crazy laws in California too.

    Thanks for a great comment!
