The target of our efforts needs to be Congress and the senior leaders of the military who will use the stunt by Choi and friends to say 'See, the homos can't behave appropriately in uniform.' I appreciate the call for civil disobedience, but I also appreciate that there are many people who wear the same uniform but do not support the same ideals. Regardless of what service's uniform we wear, when we put it on, we should become (relatively speaking) colorless, genderless, and overall neutral. We should be judged not on the biological identifiers of gender, race, or sexual identity, but on the job that we do in defense of our nation. There aren't many people in this nation who haven't heard Dan Choi's story. Him wearing his uniform to carry out this publicity stunt probably degraded our cause in the minds of many people whose attitudes we still need to change.
This is from one soldier to another.
