As a rookie officer there is so much you have to protect yourself against. Being GAY shouldn't be one of them. It doesn't matter if you are in the closet or out, both bring pros and cons. I don't know which is easier to do. If everyone knows you are a lesbian and you look like a dyke you may be treated as one of the boys. On the other hand you can also be discriminated against. If you are a fem, our macho cops will swear they can change you, fulfill their fantasies and the sexual harassment will never end. If you go in as just another plain Jane you will have to prove yourself as being able to do a mans job, deal with sexual harassment and you will find yourself telling one lie after another to cover up your true self. I would like to have you share your stories, maybe we can help someone make the right decision for themselves. Thanks.
