Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is REPEALED…!!!

The Senate just repealed DADT a little before 4PM today.  Over 200 years of military injustice will be set “straight” and signed into law by President Obama this coming week.  I’m off to a holiday party at Philadelphia Gay News owner and publisher, Mark Segal – a Philadelphia legendary gay rights pioneer I have known for decades.


Tonight’s holiday party is bound to be more festive than any in recent memory.  There’s something REAL for everyone to celebrate.


Only 8 republicans voted, including Scott Brown – he just got cuter in my eyes, even if he wouldn’t personally ever care to meet me.  Face it, he is handsome, but neither he nor any heterosexual person need now or ever fear anyone from the LGBT community.


Let’s CELEBRATE equality and justice for all…!!!

Next, find a way to revive the ‘Dream Act’ and we’ll be on our way to fully fulfilling the American dream for everyone.

Postscript – After reading my friend Mark’s comment, I replied with the following words and decided to add them to the posting:

Mark, as a gay man I have to admit 2 of the major perks of BEING gay have always been, to MY eyes, NOT getting married and NOT serving in the military.  In the same breath I don’t want anyone to tell me I can’t do these things, as a member of a discriminated-against minority.

I’m frankly amazed how the republicans have been so disinclined to use gay people as cannon fodder. And as much problem as I’ve had with gay Log Cabin Republicans, I have to hand it to them. Their experience in *”wanting to be a member of a club that doesn’t want them to join” – has certainly paid off.

  1. As long as there are politicians, the American Dream will be withheld from the majority. There has been no equality or justice in America for the low/middle class in a century, and the politicians are working night and day to ensure that the status quo is maintained.

    That being said, congrats to the LGBT community for finally getting to openly die while being sent to third world countries to help Bush/Chaney get richer. Personally, even as one who tried to serve I cannot understand why women and the LGBT community were fighting so hard to be included in such a horrible mess.
    Don't get me wrong, all props to those who serve, they are putting their asses on the line for us, but at the beck and call of a group of ubber-rich narrow-minded thieves that have gotten into power. The ratpublican'ts and dumbocraps do not value the lives of our troops one iota. It is time for a new party that actually listens to the people, and is made up exclusively of the majority demographic (and I don't mean white, I mean low/middle class)

  3. Well said. As a pagan, the only thing I am not "allowed" is a safe home in Georgia or Alabama (or any other part of the Bible Belt) but I don't want to be there anyway. Again, a member of a club that would not want me for a member. So, my sympathies to you on your victory (LOL)
