I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 99% of gays are ideologically opposed to the military. And not only do they believe the military to be evil, wouldn't you also say the military doesn't fit into the carefully crafted stereotypes that GAYS have made up about themselves?
1. They tend to be extremely fashion conscious. (Don't deny it, you know it's true.) So how many gays do you know that would want to wear dark green in the spring, or wear their desert whites in the winter?
2. They tend to be lovers of fine cuisine. With that in mind, how excited would most gays be when they open their army ration kit and find out that stale crackers is what they will be eating, and that it will be washed down with a dirty canteen full of rain water?
3. They are more emotionally connected than most. Do you think they will like their Drill Sergeant screaming in their face while being forced to scrub a bathroom floor with a toothbrush?
Folks, the vast majority of gays have no desire to join the military in the first place, which is why this issue will never go away. If President Obama actually ended the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, then gays would move on to their next issue, but if this issue continues to exist, it serves as a distraction from the issue gays really care about; gay marriage.
But let me tell you another reason that Obama will NEVER give gays this issue; because the straight people in the military would have a fit. And would you blame them? Think about it for just a second. How many of you ladies out there would want to change clothes and shower in front of strange men? How many of you men would want to have to strip down in front of women who aren't your wife? Perverts aside, no one would. Which is why no man would want to shower in the same room with men who were openly gay, and the same would go for women. Simply put, it would be a HUGE distraction, and I'm guessing that people who are about to put their lives at risk need as few distractions as possible.
Here's the HardTruth.
Obama has zero intention of giving gays what they want because he knows the public doesn't want him to. Don't get me wrong, I believe if Obama had his way he would give gays more than want they want. He would probably make it illegal to criticize them if he could, but I can thankfully say, he can't. As he as shown time and again, he can't do anything, which is great for the country, but bad for those who see him as their savior, and that's the HardTruth.
