Dont Ask Dont Tell Repealed Finally

The Rainbow Flag, GLBT Pride

Do Ask, Do Tell

Just in time for the holidays, the Senate repealed “Do ask, Dont Tell.” This a great victory for the LGBT community. It has been a long time coming. This law has effected many careers and lives. I remember doing a video on youtube a year ago with InTransHeart on Dan Choi when he lost his rank and position because he was gay. He was a highly decorated soldier thrown away by the military based on his sexual orientation and this horrid law. I always wonder about those people who lost their careers. I imagined going to college for 4 year, getting my degree.  Then getting my masters and workin so hard to get to a specific level in your career, then out the blue someone says you cant do this career anymore because of  who you slept with last night. That would be crazy.

 What’s next though? This is a sigh of relief for the indviduals already serving in the military who are able to hide or avoid scruntiny, but what does this mean for the still patriotic soldiers and personel that were discharged when this silly law was in full effect? Will some of those good soldier or Arabic -speaking specialist be brought back? Will their dishonorable discharges be repealed as well?  Hope that our military does the right thing and extend some positions and apologies to these famlies. This would give Wikileaks some good stuff to report instead of the dirty laundry.

    Well I’m glad they repealed DADT. I’m hoping this is just the first for many more rights to come for the LGBT community. This is AMERICA damn it and if they can allow others to come here with different religions and have rights, then why are we excluded?
    When you think about it, if by their bible other religions are wrong and they still grant them rights, then why not us?
