Don't ask, don't tell - how one lesbian coped

Some gay women had to come up with creative strategies to adhere to the U. S. military’s "Don’t ask, don’t tell" rule prohibiting homosexuals from openly serving in the armed services. The policy was lifted on September 20, 2011.

I’m just a little surprised, Roz. You always acted like you were into guys.

I know, and I’m not proud of it… but I really liked being in the service. I thought I needed the cover. I even went on dates.

You did?

Yup. Of course, the guys were all gay.

That’s a date?

Almost. It’s just nice to chill with someone on the same page.
