No, that's not what it means. As it is now, with Don't ask, Don't tell in effect, gay people can be in the military, as long as no one knows they're gay. In other words, no one can ask them and they can't volunteer the information in any way. They have to hide that they're gay. If they ARE found out to be gay, they get kicked out of the military.

If they overturn DADT, gay people will be treated just like anyone else as regards their sexual orientation. They will be allowed to join the military and they can talk about their mates and have pictures of them and they don't have to hide who they are, as there will be no threat of discharge because they're gay.

Make sense?

I can't believe people don't want gay people to be able to come out with their true feelings, don't worry homophobes, it doesn't mean they're going to start flirting with you, they're the same people.
