It doesn't matter what you do in the bedroom
as long as you don't do it in the street
and frighten the horses
--The Duchess of Jermyn Street, Daphne Fielding
Sometimes posts don't go exactly as planned.
Easing the Transition was meant as sarcasm against the cruelest and most ignorant fears surrounding the repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy regarding the service of homosexuals in the military. It has long been Ranger Against War's position that bigotry against an individual solely on the basis of sexual preference is absurd and primitive. (We haven't quite hit our stride for 2011, but hope to, soon.)
In the work environment, sexual matters should be irrelevant. A heterosexual's sexual escapades are no more savory a topic than those of any other sexual orientation. Discretion and discipline are the watchwords, especially so in a military environment.
So, no offense intended, and we hope none taken. On a more serious note, if you wish to comment on what you see as impediments to instituting the repeal, please feel free to comment here. As previously mentioned, old institutional ideas die hard; the first wave of openly gay soldiers will take some knocks. As one young soldier shared with us, he would take no offense to serving with a gay soldier, but he fears for the response of some of his more testosterone-driven fellows.
