Gays In The Military

Eugene Volokh has a post up about campuses barring the military from recruiting because it discriminates against gays. I think he is too accomodating to arguments that there's a rationale for excluding gay soldiers (though for the sake of argument he presumes that that rationale is insufficient), and looks too favorably on the overall role of the military (as if all they do is protect our freedoms, and the only downside is Don't Ask Don't Tell). Neverthelesss, he hits on two points I've made about the similar pro-gay rejection of the Boy Scouts -- reducing the possibility of change from within, and ignoring the benefits of the organization.
