Petitioning Defense Secretary Robert Gates

Petition Defense Secretary Gates for an accurate survey of Don't Ask Don't Tell

Are anti-LGBT forces working inside the Department of Defense to prevent the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?”

A ridiculous survey was just sent to 400,000 active duty and reserve members of the armed services as part of a study on the possible effects of repealing DADT. It uses derogatory terms like “homosexual” and asks biased questions like what people’s reactions would be if they had to share a tent or bathroom with someone they suspected to be gay or lesbian.

 The survey is insulting, one-sided, and designed to elicit a negative response.

 Sign the petition and ask Defense Secretary Robert Gates for a fair survey.
