Usage of DADT
The abbreviation DADT stands for "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." It is a policy that was implemented by the United States government regarding gay and lesbian individuals serving in the military. The policy prohibited military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted gay or bisexual service members or applicants, while at the same time prohibiting openly gay or bisexual persons from serving in the military. The policy was repealed in 2011 due to public pressure and changing attitudes towards the LGBTQ+ community.
