Well, the way it seems, there is yet another stay on the decision of terminating the “don’t ask, don’t tell” clause regarding homosexuals in the American military. Current update regarding the issue as announced by the Pentagon Channel:
I can understand that we need people in the four branches of the military, but I seriously question the Feds’ decision to not accept people who declared themselves in their applications as homosexual and/or lesbian. As much as I disagree with their overall lifestyle, they should have as much right to join the military as straight men and women. Even with the military conflicts slowly coming to a close in Iraq & Afghanistan, they still need troops in relief of those currently overseas.
Discrimination by sexual orientation is serious, but not as severe as racism. However, do you see African-Americans or Asian-Americans being turned away from the military? NO! Why declare that homosexuals can’t join even if they state it on their applications?
Seriously, this whole “don’t ask, don’t tell” ordeal is all ass backwards…..and perhaps Lady Gaga agrees with me in that matter:
However, I don’t agree with her anti-straight comments. Boo friggity hoo in that manner! I still say don’t blame it on our straight military members!
I guess this issue will drag on for a good while……and I’m already bored of it!
