    Can anybody explain? Am I supposed to know why she’s being discharged?

    One thing she wasn’t pretending to be was a soldier.

    I didn’t realise the US military hadn’t quite joined the 21st century yet.

    Nagut: She’s gay, and thanks to McCain, and against the wishes of the majority of Congress, the White House, the American Military, and the American People, she’ll be kicked out.

    Coyoty, well said. She was a real soldier, and unlike almost all the other militaries of the world, as GrimmaTheNome notes, that wasn’t appreciated.

    Well, yeah, it was, but not by McCain, whose wishes seem to take precedence over everyone else.

    @nagut, it’s the US military’s DADT (don’t ask, don’t tell) policy.

    GrimmaTheNome, the military has said it’s okay with gays. It’s Congress that isn’t in the 21st Century yet.

    hadn’t you noticed that we’re going back to the stone age? The idea that the 21st Century represents enlightenment is a lovely fairy tale.

    wait till Manning takes the stand (unless they snuff him, first for being “out”, and next for revealing how ill-kept our “high-security” secrets have been). I predict they’ll bring back crucifixion. Ya know, one cross for Manning, one for Assange, and the one in the middle for the slow, agonizing death of Hope.

    The people who are against gay or bi servicemembers claim that they are worried they would be “harassed”. Meanwhile, one in three women serving in the US military today is raped. Obviously being straight solves EVERYTHING about military sexual harassment. eyeroll

    THEY ARE DISCHARGING HER? I had heard that people whom popped positive on UA’s where still used as cannon fodder and then processed out upon remob! Why not the same with alternative life-style people?
