As of 2011, gay people can freely join the US Military and do not have to hide their orientation.

This is no longer an issue. Gay people are permitted to join the military. You might have to be willing to say you are gay in order to get back in though, because the military probably won't like the fact that you lied to get out.

None. As of 2011, there is no regulation that bans gay people from serving in the U.S. Military. You are probably thinking of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) which was in force from 1993 to 2011.


No, we are very balanced people. We contribute to society in many ways. We pay our taxes. We trim our lawns. We look after our health. We donate to charity with our money and our time. We join the military. We join the police. We rescue people in emergencies.If anything, gay people increase balance to society by adopting unwanted children that straight parents either can't or won't raise.



It allowed gay people to serve in the military if they were closeted, but this is hardly an improvement.


It is not possible for anyone to force anyone else, even a relative, to join the military. The military will only take people who agree to go. If your son refuses, the military will not take him.


a heck of alot of people i suppose



They don't really affect people in the military at all. In fact, many of the people IN the military are gay. Gay relationships have no effect on anybody else, but the people they concern. Homophobes THINK that gays have a direct effect on them, but they really don't. I have a feeling that the next generation will look with embarrassment on their homophobic ancestors, just as we look with embarrassment on our racist ancestors.


Yes, they have the right to ban gays, but currently, they do allow gay teens to join.
