izz: As if DADT it's self isn't insulting to gay service members and embarrassing to the US alone, the government sends a survey to 400,000 troops with over 100 questions on how they feel about the repeal. I have posted a link from the Advocate where you can read it and down load it. I would like to know what backwards hick they dragged out of 1950 from the woods of melon head land they used to come up with these questions? Let me guess, John McCain, Pat Robertson and Tony Perkins (I'm sure Tony had some wood writing them). The questions are insensitive, insulting and extremely offensive. These questions are written as if the gays are some sort of enemies or pow's...wtf? Not to mention, that they way they are written they are almost setting it up to get a negative response so they don't over turn DADT. There are so many things that can come out of my mouth right now but fortunately i popped my lexapro, so i am very calm right now ;)
here is a sample:
If Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is repealed and you are assigned to bathroom facilities with an open bay shower that someone you believe to be a gay or lesbian Service member also used, which are you most likely to do? Mark 1.
Take no action
Use the shower at a different time than the Service member I thought to be gay or lesbian
Discuss how we expect each other to behave and conduct ourselves
Talk to a chaplain, mentor, or leader about how to handle the situation
Talk to a leader to see if I had other options
If you selected 'Something else,' please specify below.
