My Opinion on “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”

I was searching through my archives looking for past entries I had on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” (DADT)  It turns out I haven’t mentioned it before.  Although I have written about my support of gay marriage in the past, I cannot support DADT.  My reason is different than the Republicans being against it.  I do not have a problem with gay people serving our country in war or in peace.

I am still young enough to be drafted,  While I believe the United States should defend itself against all enemies (foreign and domestic), I also believe that a citizen should have the right to decide if the war his or her country is fighting is worth dying for.  I have taken the life of the soldier very seriously in my policy on warfare.

If DADT is passed and becomes law, it will be more difficult of getting out of a draft.  I was hoping I could tell the draft board I cannot serve because I am gay if there is a war I am drafted for that I feel is wrong.  The only way I can get out of a draft now is blowing out my knee (and that would really, really hurt.)

  2. How old does one have to be not to be drafted?

  3. It is 42 during wartime. It is much lower during peace time (I believe 27).

  4. Another question (sorry if I have asked this before) Do you prefer not to turn on your threaded comments option?

    • I didn’t know I could do that until just now. Threading wasn’t an option when I first started blogging.

      • But now I know. 🙂

      • You can also choose how deep you want the threads to go. I would go past 4 because some themes don’t format right when they get too deep.

        Thanks for turning these on! 🙂

      • I went with three.

  5. I meant to say “wouldn’t go past 4” not “would”

    Ooops…

    3 works fine 🙂
