Women likeliest to be discharged under 'don't ask'
SAN FRANCISCO a ' Women are far more likely than men to be kicked out of the military under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy against gays in uniform, according to government figures released Thursday that critics said reflect deep-seated sexism in the armed forces.

they don't want woman there anyway, so while they might look the other way in the case of a male, they want to nail the lesbians. Sexist tripe.

Don't you think they would want lesbians to serve? The whole tough dyke image and all?
Whatever. Any way you look at it, it's blatant and unnecessary discrimination.

The only reason women were allowed in the military in the first place was for the men to have someone to have sex with (instead of buttsex with each other), so when the women don't want to have sex with men, they no longer serve a purpose. Kick em out!
Believe it or not, there are many on active duty that actually believe that!
I personally knew 2 women who were kicked out because they refused to have sex with their C.O. These were straight women, but since they wouldn't agree to in essence be raped, he said they were a lesbian couple and discharged them under DADT.
They had no recourse. How do you prove to your C.O. that you're not gay when he's the one making up the charge? So the women were discharged and sent home before they ever had a chance to appeal it up the chain of command.
