I wish it worked that way..or at least in my area I REALLY wish they actually punished people for frivolous complaints...anywho.
The sad fact of the matter is that it wont be treated the same.
I live in an area that is approx 70% white, my workforce is easily 90% male (the area that issues the most complaints for me is 99% male) but the only
complainst that EVER get investigated (brought to me officially form the Labour Board) are either any other colour male or any colour female.
I have NEVER (15 years now) seen a complaint issued from a white male. Is it because white males don't complain...I don't think so...they complain
all the time...so what is it?
The law of averages would state that I should get equal numbers of complaints from all the demographics that work for me...
So either the system is fair for everybody or it isn't...these are unfortunate facts of our current world.
I would love to give you full stats on complaints through Labour Board, however, I can't. They are literally not legally allowed to publish anything
except what pertains to my company and our employess (for my eyes anyways).
I don't see this happening any differently in the US military.
Edit to add:
I very much prefer how our local OH&S (Occupational Health and Safety) Board handles matters. However, OH&S follows a structure that is very similar
to DADT. They don't want your gender, colour, orientation. They only want your name, employers name, location of incident, and medical OH&S form as
filled by your doctor. They investigate EVERY case with the same tenactity, which leads me to believe that DADT should have been expanded, not
repealed...it should have been expanded to include everybody, hetero, homo, plain and simple no sex talk on duty.
I know this is unrealistic for the military as it is much easier when you leave work behind at the end of the day, but it is interesting non the
