I haven't heard of it being rare (I could be wrong), but if it occurs (regardless of how often it does) then the policy should not be kept.

I understand it. I just think it's bizarre. Especially when you read up about how we became a country. I think it's fantastic. I imagine pride would be the right word, but maybe it isn't.

However I was more referring to the part about any form of pride. I think that's a very broad statement.

True but I meant like that isn't the only reason they get discharged but yeah the policy should be removed all together.

I think they get discharged and there are other charges but they just highlight DADT like it was the main and only charge they had.

Yeah, I agree that the history of our country is great and all that jazz but some people take pride too far and use it as a tool for violence/discrimination against others.

I feel like he may be talking more about that but who I am to speak for someone else.

The Concept of Pride

If you wish to discuss pride, then let's do it there and not here. That way we won't be discussing something that doesn't correlate with this thread's original post.
