Don’t ask, don’t tell

Naturally, we all expected a certain amount of opposition to the president’s call to Congress to repeal don’t ask, don’t tell.

Even the fact that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has testified that repeal won’t harm the military won’t stave off criticism.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), an opponent of the repeal, explains that the issue is more complex than it appears. It’s not just gay soldiers that are a concern – it’s the hermaphrodites.

… the military is not civilian life. And I think the folks who have been in the military that have been in these very close situations with each other, there has to be a special bond there. And I think that bond is broken if you open up the military to transgenders, to hermaphrodites, to gays and lesbians.
