William Saletan: DADT and the future of sexual morality

William Saletan writing at Slate: “Conservatives tend to exaggerate the slippery slope from homosexuality to anything-goes. But many of the arguments for repealing DADT, coupled with ongoing efforts to reform military sex laws, do point in that direction . . . Sodomy and adultery laws do seem outdated and silly. But if those laws are repealed on the grounds that consensual sex is private, it’s hard to explain why the reform shouldn’t extend to other laws. What about bigamy and incest?”
