Proving once and for all, women don't belong in the military

According to a University of California at Santa Barbara researcher (here), women are kicked out of the military at a disproportionately high rate under "don't ask, don't tell" (DADT).

The gap could also be a result of "lesbian-baiting" rumors and investigations that arise when women rebuff sexual overtures from male colleagues or do not meet traditional notions of feminine beauty.

Yes, nothing says troop cohesion like the veiled threat that if you don't go out with me, I will report you as a lesbian and get you kicked out. Thank god we have DADT.

DADT, 13,000 discharges, and growing.
