Gay people in the military: a look at Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Standard

 

         What does don’t Ask don’t Tell mean? Don’t ask don’t tell is a former law in the United States that bans openly gay people to serve in the US military. So until it repel in 2011 gay people were quieted by the United States military.

           What is the history of DADT? In 1993 DADT was establish under the presidency of Bill Clinton, during that time period being openly gay in the military will get you fired. But in 2005 the constitutionality of DADT is being question.  Finally in 2011 DADT was replied.

             Why is ‘don’t ask don’t tell’ unconstitutional?  Because of the first amendment, the amendment gives us the right to be who we are. Here is the first amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Witch guaranty our freedom to be who we are, and say who we are.

           What is your take on this? It should have not been there in the first place, I believe that if your gay and you want to be in the military, who are they stop you. 

   Thank you for reading……
