The Pentagon commissioned a $4.5 million dollar survey of 400,000 service members and then was amazed news of the poll leaked out and was covered in the MSM.....The survey was all about attitudes about gays in the military...Questions like, would it bother you to shower with a gay soldier ? It's all part of the run-up to scrapping don't ask/don't tell.
Should a survey be kept secret ?...No, of course not...and do they need a survey ?...well, I would say no to that also.
Fact is some people want DADT repealed...some don't....
Since people are already showering with gays and shopping at the PX alongside gays, the question is not a question of 'have you ever met a gay person?'
The question is whether there are the votes for repeal....
I guess the I miss the point as at my age with gym class a distant memory, I can shower alone without pondering who is standing next to me.
