Book cover for The Straight State: Sexuality and Citizenship in Twentieth-Century America (Politics and Society in Twentieth-Century America)
The witch hunts were, in fact, closely related to women’s permanent integration into the regular force (enacted in 1948), as well as to the military’s continuing need for female personnel during the cold war era.123 Here as before, the ...more

This is an EXCELLENT point. Even in the New Deal-era welfare policies, the need and attempt to regulate homosexuality can be explained through the lens of how "the state's exclusionary imperatives were closely bound together with its inclusionary ones."
