don’t ask, don’t tell

obama said he wants to repeal "don’t ask, don’t tell" in the military to allow gays to openly serve. from what i hear, many military officials are on board with this. and why not?

military men already know that gays are serving in the ranks with them. what would be the difference? this is a case of the "older" people catching up with the "younger" people.

on a similar note, i am discussing homosexuality in my class today. among the stats i will present:

the 2007 Pew Global Attitudes Project found that 49% of Americans answered yes to the question "Should homosexuality be accepted by society?” (41% say no). in comparison, 70% of Canadians agree and 60% of Mexicans. for even further comparison, those answering yes in Sweden are 86%, France 83%, Spain 82%, Britain 71%, Russia 20%, Japan 49%.
