Too top to be gay

With reference to US "Don't Ask Don't Tell," it was actually a progressive reform when it was implemented, because before that if they caught you doing "gay stuff," or visiting a gay bar, or hanging with the wrong people, or reading the wrong publications you got a dishonorable discharge. DADT still kicked people out for telling, but they didn't really stop asking. It was really Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Be Too Easy To Catch.
Turkey's policy, like many of their other policies and laws, is absurd to the point of almost being a crime against humanity.
