"A Modest Proposal: Privacy as a Flawed Rationale for the Exclusion of Gays and Lesbians from the U.S. Military"
Journal Article, International Security, volume 27, issue 2, pages 178-197
Would allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the U.S. military impinge upon the privacy rights of heterosexual service members? Aaron Belkin of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Melissa Sheridan Embser-Herbert of Hamline University debunk arguments that the gay ban is necessary to protect privacy. They explain why lifting the ban would actually enhance the privacy rights of heterosexual as well as homosexual service members.
