What It Costs to Keep the Gays Out
 / 

An interesting study from the Department of Defense (PDF). About 9,500 servicemembers have been “separated” from the U.S. military (read “discharged,” although that’s one of English’s Official Nastiest Words) in the past 10 years for being gay or lesbian. The D.O.D. commissioned this study to see how much their fear of the gay was costing them to recruit new servicefolks. For the Army, Navy and Air Force, the cost turned out to be about $95 million, over the past decade. (The total for the Marines couldn’t be counted.) Eh, not so much $$. Discriminate away!
