This is almost as if 'ole Sal wrote it hiz'elf.
At the bottom of page 13 we find something so good you want get nakid and roll around in it; but not THAT way ...
We do not recommend that sexual orientation be placed alongside race, color, religion, sex, and national origin, as a class eligible for various diversity programs, tracking initiatives, and complaint resolution processes under the Military Equal Opportunity Program. We believe that doing so could produce a sense, rightly or wrongly, that gay men and lesbians are being elevated to a special status as a “protected class” and will receive special treatment. In a new environment in which gay and lesbian Service members can be open about their sexual orientation, we believe they will be accepted more readily if the military community understands that they are simply being permitted equal footing with everyone else.... and say it along with me .... because we know that right now, simply by what block they check on a form, the children of Vice Admirals and dudes that look just like me and grew up in the "Leave it to Beaver" world of sub-urban Maryland, "...receive special treatment" just because the Diversity Bullies and the CNO demand that we treat people by the color of their skin, instead of the content of their character.
Expect some pushback from the Diversity Industry though - if they can rope them in that is more job security for them. Make no mistake about it - 75% of those who push the hardest do because they have money in the game.
We can all hope that one day we can reach a point in American where we treat everyone as adults and equal citizens. Until then, if we can just get post-DADT to "Don't Care" - then I will take that as a small victory in a larger battle towards equality for all.
Even if you oppose repeal of DADT, you have to admit this is good news.
