The battle over the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy is taking center stage in Riverside, Calif.

The nation's largest Republican same-sex rights group is challenging the rule, calling it unconstitutional.

A lawyer for The Log Cabin Republicans made his opening statement on Tuesday.

The suit forces the federal government to defend the policy that President Obama says should be repealed.

    I served in the US Army and had no problem trusting my fellow soldiers, that was until one of them decided to inform us that he was a homosexual, afterward we reported him for outing himself.These laws are there to both protect homosexuals and keep piece of mind amongst the troops. It would be very distracting to many male soldiers to know which female troops engaged in lesbian activities. As well as making it uncomfortable to interact with homosexual males for fear of offending them unintentionally. Guys have what is known as "guy talk" and in some cases,one guy might feminize the other with an intention of motivating them to do "man up" or to do better.Under normal circumstances with a hetero male, it would do nothing more than make them want to achieve a higher level of respect amongst his peers. However with a homosexual, they might take offense and cause trouble for the soldier who said it, and even more for himself via peer retaliation.
