I am so proud of President Obama for successfully getting the DADT policy repealed!! This is a BIG moment and he deserves all the shine for not backing down to the damn ridiculous conservative interests (FINALLY) and handling it during a lame duck session.
It’s still so crazy to me that over 14,000 military personnel were discharged from service solely as a result of that archaic homophobic ass policy! As if we can afford to be kicking folks out of the military while we’re fighting all these senseless wars.
If you’re willing to put your life on the line to protect the citizens of this country and our freedoms here and abroad, you’re better than most of us (myself included). So at the very least, we should all respect your right to fall in love with whomever you choose.
