dc.description.abstractIn this project I make the case that the privacy rights rationale and the unit cohesion rationale do not convincingly justify the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy or any other policy that excludes homosexuals from military service. To many, these rationales seem compelling at first glance, but when scrutinized and fully considered, it becomes apparent that they are not logical or coherent justifications for the exclusion of homosexuals from military service. Most credible evidence collected related to privacy rights of heterosexuals or the unit cohesion rationale do not support the rationales or are inconclusive. An explanation of why these rationales do not pass muster will provided later in this project.en_US
