"Don't ask, don't tell" (DADT) was the official United States policy on military service by gays, bisexuals, and lesbians, instituted by the Clinton Administration on February 28, 1994, when Department of Defense Directive 1304.26 issued on December 21, 1993, took effect, lasting until September 20, 2011.

Over the last decade the Don't ask, don't tell policy has made major changes. While to some the policy is normal procedure since being in the military is a job and those such topics should not arise in the work place. But, on duty while you are away for sometime and begin to make special bonds and friendships with your fellow colleagues sexual orientation may arise. If someone may over hear or a common case of the telephone game runs along what can you do? Since people tend to mirror themselves onto other people 9 times out of 10 if you do not state your sexual preference many would not know.

Polite Society loves this project titled Don't ask, don't tell shot by the photographer Breann WHLGN (based in Detroit) because it shows people what not to do which is to conform to society. Polite Society Magazine would love to hear your opinions on the matter below or on our twitter. Make sure you follow the photographer and give credit.
