    Hey.
    All the schools I applied to have strong accepting LGBT communities and I was wondering how the environment at USMA would be. Are there any support groups for people of my…preference? And will I face much discrimination?

    I mean it’s kind of obvious. I’m a ballet dancer, cheerleader, and well my voice…

    Thanks everybody, see you on June 29th, I’ve been waiting since I got my Appointment back in November.
    Much love

    You are on the wrong board

    You were obviously trying to get on the USNA board and hit the wrong site.

    "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

    All I can say. I doubt you will be discriminated against if you follow that approach.

    pedro, shape up, that was a terrible comment that was both off topic and tasteless.

    nuts4usma, usma wants you to join the long gray line, but you're going to have to seriously think about this choice as the military is perhaps the most difficult profession for someone who is LGBT. if its suspected that you are it will certainly be very tough, if its known for fact, you may be separated. check one of the papers that you have to sign to send in to west point thats on the candidate portal, it states that you acknowledge that engaging in homosexual behavior or tendencies is grounds for separation.

    i think you're a good guy, you obviously have a lot of potential with that appointment in hand and it'd be great to see you next year, i hope you make the right decision for yourself, whatever that may be

    wait. So I can't be openly Gay?

    and I can't commit "Homosexual behavior" even if I find a consenting mate? Is this just on campus?

    i find it troubling that the military did not make this perhaps more apparent to you?

    Hello?? Can't you tell this is a joke? Someone is trying to be funny...however, it's not funny at all.

    I thought you said you received an LOA in November? Did you get both the LOA and Appointment in November?



    Quote by Nuts4USMA "Hey y'all I just just joined this forum and it told me to make a post telling everyone about my self.

    I'm a senior in High School from VT and like to have fun. I do Ballet and am on the Varsity Cheer leading team. This may be surprising to you.

    I got an LOA back in November and received an Appointment a while ago. Hopefully Ill meet some mates on here.

    I'm glad you all think this is funny, because my BF and I certainly don't.

    And Chipshandon- dont't mock me.

    As a recent graduate of USMA, I would be lying if I said there weren't any homosexuals there. However, it is strictly a don't ask, don't tell policy.

    I highly recommend that you find another university to attend and another walk of life to follow. Either you are trolling, or you are clearly barking up the wrong tree both academically and professionally in this case.

    I suggest looking more into military life. Don't ask don't tell is one of the military's most controversial and talked about policies. If you haven't heard about it then I wonder how much you have heard about military life and know if it's for you.

    I noticed Nuts4USMA joined on April 1st...he/she/it must be an April Fools joke. :rolleyes:

    I am sure the next time one of the super moderators logs on this thread will be removed.
