After reading that I am reminded of something that I was taught in grade school. Treat others as you want to be treated. I understand both points of view. I am Catholic, not really a practing Catholic as I went to Catholic school and had quite a few issues with that. Example: I had a cousin who was homeschooled. Her mother asked me if I would take her to homecoming with me. I told her I would have to clear it with the school but I didn't see a problem. I was informed by my school I couldn't bring her as she was the same sex. I found her a date. Thank god, I had a lot of guy friends. That is besides the point.
But from my understanding of DADT, if someone finds out you are gay then you can be fired from the military. I just think that if people (gay or otherwise) want to serve in the military their personal life should stay their personal life. I don't think it is right (morally or otherwise) to fire someone about something they do in their private life.
I agree with Nunyabiness the very definition of being gay is they love someone of the same gender and being not able to marry the person they love is infringing on their constitutional right to the Pursuit of Happiness. Why would a gay person want to marry someone of the opposite sex that would make them hetero. And cause them to be very unhappy and more than likely to cheat on that person. That is completely discrimination.
Be that as it may someone should be punished for her death. For her to get over this traumatic incident she should just admit she did something wrong and go through counceling. To attempt to sweep it under the rug and just let her go will not teach her a lesson.
I thought she admitted her guilt.
