I'm appearantly a giant ball of sunshine today, but this doesn't surprise me in the least. It's bad policy, plain and simple. It's BAD for our military when we're in two wars and don't have the people to spare; we can't keep firing them over arbitrary differences.
I personally have major, major issues with the fact that THIS is going to be the first problem to be corrected (It's great that we can go out and die for a country that doesn't protect our rights), but I understand that there are people directly affected by this who do want to serve, and soon will be able to openly.
Definitely a step forward, but it just doesn't feel like a very big step.
