I've asked this for years: How can we expect people to serve with "honor" and "integrity" when they have to lie about themselves in order to serve with "honor" and "integrity"?

I'm glad this pointless policy is gone. Too many people still have to learn that the problems they have with ANYONE's differences from themselves are about the "me" and not the "them". Get over yourselves! The rest of us already have.
