There are no homophobes in foxholes: Repeal DADT now
Some (admittedly ridiculous) people say that we shouldn't repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell in wartime. Really, though, what better time to take the decisive step towards justice and equality? In peacetime, homophobes in the military would have plenty of time to obsess about all the terrible things that might happen if the gays were let in.
But if you learn that the person who is entrusted with keeping you alive in a firefight is gay, are you really going to make a big deal about it?
