She's stupid. DADT is in the process of being repealed right now. It has passed the house and is waiting for a vote from the senate. It will be repealed by the time she would have graduated. Are all gay people into instant gratification??? Patience is a virtue that many of our young are severely lacking.

please vote on poll about whether you are OK living next to LGBT people and comment why you voted the way you did, so that people know why people say yes, no, etc.

This just reinforces your (and the so called LGBT) need for acceptance by mainstream hetero culture.

I want QUIET neighbors who keep to themselves, but who also keep an eye open for suspicious activity in the neighborhood. I don't care if they're gay, straight, bi, old, young, pretty, ugly, whatever. Just be good neighbors.
