So infuriating and unfortunate.

Lt. Dan Choi, the Iraq war veteran who bravely outed himself to fight Don't Ask, Don't Tell, has been officially discharged from the Army National Guard because of his 'violation' of the ridiculous policy.

He says in a statement:

"After 11 years since beginning my journey at West Point and after 17 months of serving openly as an infantry officer this is both an infuriating and painful announcement. My service continues. Remaining silent when our family and community members are fired or punished for who they truly are would be an unequivocal moral dereliction that tarnishes the honor of the uniform and insults the meaning of America. I don’t consider myself a victim. As sad as I am, I’m not a victim. My unit is a victim."

What a courageous man. It truly is our country's loss to lose him as member of the armed services.

We hope this doesn't deter him from his fight for equal rights! We are 100% behind you, bb!

Change WILL happen!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE!

    Why does anyone on this planet have to know or have to care what his sexual preference is.
    If you don't ask me I won't tell you!

    Stop fighting shiz that doens' t matter anyways. Be who you are, but not everyone has to know about it.
    Sorry he was fired~ I guess he shoudl have followed the rules to the job he signed up for.



  2. 2

    You're 100% behind him all right, ready to stick your dick up his ass. Then you can tell everyone you've been in the military.



  3. 3

    EQUAL RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~ PEREZ STFU~ DAMN! I can't stand you.
    You dont mean that.
    You are fake and a hypocrite, and only want equal rights for those who believe what you believe.

    People would rather not know that someone is gay - it gives them the heebie jeebies to wonder if someone is checking them out while getting ready for bed and even if you know, not having it confirmed gives you an illusion of 'oh she/he isn't checking me out, it's all good'. We can't put homosexuals into their own bays as it'd be a worry that /hanky panky/ was going on - same reason we can't put men and women together in bays together. So, don't ask, don't tell. Do your own thing on your own private time and they'll do their's and stop trying to make it a big deal.



  5. 5

    god, shut up. how about only gay people are allowed in the army and they all get themselves killed off???? great idea.



  6. 6

    stupid ass potato queen



  7. 7

    I WISH ALL THE GAYS IN THE MILITARY WOULD TAKE A STAND….COME FORWARD AND QUIT AS A GROUP!!!!!!!! iIN THE MEAN TIME…IF GOVERMENT IS GOING TO USE SEGREGATION & DISCRIMINATION AGAINST US…WE SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY FULL TAXES BECAUSE WE DO NOT GET FULL BENEFITS OF BEING A US CITIZEN!!!!!!!



  8. 8

    Whether you think the policy is ridiculous or not has no merit-IT IS THE POLICY & it's for their own protection!! Get out on mamby pamby land!!

    Just what do you think the enemy would do with captured soldiers known to be gay??



  9. 9

    "Bravely outed himself"??? I think you mean stupidly and selfishly outed himself. He knew the policy going in, and he knew what would happen if he started announcing his orientation. That tells me one thing, he wanted OUT. So he did what he knew would get him discharged. But instead of going AWOL and looking bad, he just announced he was gay, then stepped right out looking like some kind of "equal rights" hero. Bullshit! He's a coward and a fraud. Yeah, I do indeed feel sorry for the rest of his unit, because he screwed all of them by selfishly disregarding the oath he took when he entered the military. But I feel good for them that he is gone as he was obviously not a committed military man, and just a selfish coward.



  10. 10

    Everybody knows the don't ask, don't tell policy when they join the army. He shouldn't be surprised that he got discharged. I don't know why people are suddenly saying 'hey you should be allowed to be openly gay in the army' They shower together, live together, and if it makes some people uncomfortable, why is that an issue that they just don't mention it? The military is strict about tradition and respect, it is not respectful to make those around you uncomfortable. I have several gay, lesbian, and bi friends but if they joined the army and complained about having to keep thier preference under wraps I would say the same thing I am saying now… It's not a big deal that you just don't talk about, you know that this is what the Army maintains and you know the consequences. Why is this so shocking? The Army has never kept it a secret that they have the don't ask, don't tell policy, so why, when one of their policies is violated it becomes a huge issue? If you break the law, you go to jail, if you violate Army protocol, you get punished.

    As a Gay Veteran I think there are a lot more important things going on in this country than Dont Ask Dont Tell.

    There are over 3000 people waiting for life saving HIV/Aids medication in the United States. More than 3,000 people cant get the drugs they need due to budget cuts.

    Joining the military is a choice. Being gay is not.. If you want to live a openly gay life style you can choose to not join the military! No one forces you to sign up!



  12. 12

    -
    He was discharged because he put his own cause and his own personal interests above those of his men. He is a disgrace of an officer. How dare he betray his men like that. They probably don't even care if he is gay or not - all they know is that their leader cares more about himself than his unit.
    -



  13. 13

    Does that mean he loses all his benefits? I hope not he served his country when most of us don't. Good luck to him.



  14. 14

    Hey dumbass he is couragous for serving our country not for coming out…. your priorities are so fucked up you make me sick.



  15. 15

    Seriously Perez, talk about something you know something about, like publishing underage coochie shots. All in the world need to understand that Gays wanting to be excepted is a WANT, and not a requirement. Same with all forms of racism as well - it's a WANT, not a requirement.

    That said, it's those that abuse the system that ruin it for the Gay community. I served in the military in the late 80s and early 90s and there were several gay people of both sexes in. And they weren't harrassed even though it was well known they were gay. Why? Because they weren't flamboyant. It's the real flamers that make straight people hate gay people…not those who are subdued with their lifestyle. Simply, straight men don't want to see men kissing men…period, end of story. That's not going to change no matter how much you bitch and moan about it. Outward homosexuality only makes straight people hate it even more. Same with racism. White men don't generally give a shit about what color a person is until direct black power racism is flaunted to them. In both regards, one side stands up hard for their belief. The minute the homosexuals realize that their attempts ultimately force people that aren't for it to accept it and just live life will be the same moment progress gets made. Until then, enjoy the continued backlash because it won't go away.

    people would hate gay people if it wasn't for flaming idiots like perez.



  17. 17

    Dan Choi is a very brave and honorable man!



  18. 18

    Damn there are some very interesting and thought provoking post above me, I never really knew how to approach this matter.



  19. 19

    What a bullshit this DADT policy is…. I can't believe it's even an issue.



  20. 20

    Well, Mario, I actually agree with you that DADT should be repealed. Why don't you ask your precious Barry Obama to end it? Oh, he's homophobic like "a typical black person?" Oops, meant to say he's homophobic like "a typical white person." Mario, grow some balls and demand that your prez do something about the (lack of) gay rights that you're always whining about.



  21. 21

    EXACTLY. Including Christians and Republicans, right, Perez?



  22. 22

    "Ridiculous policy" is an understatement!
    It is absolutely disgraceful that this shit goes on in "the land of the free" in 2010!
    Anyone who chooses to fight for our country should be commended not discriminated against in this way!
    DADT will be repealed but too late for many!
    HOMOPHOBIA IS UGLY AND DISGUSTING!



  23. 23

    The American government is so hypocritical. They force companys in this country not to discriminate for any reason, yet it's ok for them to? I would not fight for a country that wouldn't fight for me.



  24. 24

    So it's okay for straight men in the military to rape women and fuck prostitutes but not okay to be gay and do nothing wrong?



  25. 25

    Re: Ü!!!SEMICOLON!!!bergeist – Other than backward countries in the middle east or some in Africa etc…, it is only here in the USA that gay is an issue!
    Why? FUCKED UP RELIGION!
    RELIGIOUS RIGHT PRIMATES=BIGOTS! !!
    Bullshit is right!



  26. 26

    What a f***ing douchebag. Used to work with this mfer and let me tell ya, he wasn't discharged because of his DADT cause. His a$$ was fired cuz the douchebag sucked at his job and cuz of his lack of respect for everyone he worked with. He probably has the record for most articles against him. So instead of walking away with his tail between his legs, he put his d**k out there for everyone to feel sorry for. Don't fall for the bs this ahole is spouting. His is a case of hell bent revenge on the good officers of the army that tried to counsel his a$$ a long time ago! Out.



  27. 27

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Fuck off you BIGOT!
    YOU are the one who is a racist and homophobic asswipe!
    EVERYONE HERE KNOWS IT~
    Obama already announced he would repeal DADT you lame brain!
    Goes to the Senate this fall and hmmm-wonder how the FUCK NO party will vote!
    Same way they just voted on the side of Wall Street for the financial bill!
    Same way they voted against extending benefits for the unemployed!
    You are so fucking stupid get your facts straight and watch something other than Fox news if your tiny annelid "brain" can handle it!



  28. 28

    Yikes! I cannot believe so many stupid posts in this thread. Sad. It's more than simply being quiet about your sexuality. If someone finds out, they can tell on you and get you kicked out.

    Most of you are nothing but stupid anti-gay cun*ts.

    Fuck OFF!



  31. 31

    Re: DJ NIKKI
    Quit? You don't have a clue how the military works do you? You are either kicked out, or you finish your term, or you retire. There is no quit option. The "quit" would be AWOL, so they would just throw you in jail, which is exactly what SHOULD happen since you knowingly violated the policies that you knew were in place.



  32. 32

    Re: supersongbird – You are racist and homophobic! Everyone here knows it. Please stop being such an asshole. It's because of backwards morons like you that we have DADT. Actually, I'm pretty sure it was those jerks the Clintons who started DADT. They're Democrats, right? What jerks! Hey, gays, you can serve in the army but you gotta keep your gayness a secret or else we will kick you out. Democrats are jerks!



  33. 33

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – George Bush used homophobia to his advantage to get re-elected-REMEMBER?
    Fucking conservatives must be brain-dead, such selective memories you have…
    Bush's anti-gay marriage speeches were dispicable and he used them to win over the -way too prevelant- Christian right primates for their votes!
    !
    RELIGION, BIGOTRY AND THE VAST MAJORITY OF REPUBLICANS ARE KEEPING THIS COUNTRY FROM ADVANCING INTO THE 21ST CENTURY-
    NOT OBAMA!



  34. 34

    Re: supersongbird – Barry and George have the same stance on gay marriage…which would make Barry just as homophobic as George. I see that you didn't dispute the facts that the Clintons started DADT. Gay soldiers can suck all the cock and eat out all the ladies they want, they just can't do it openly. Can you imagine if Muslim soldiers couldn't be openly Muslim and if they were caught kneeling and facing Mecca then they got the boot?



  35. 35

    Re: check the facts you twits

    I have a friend who said the same thing at first but think about this:

    When they are all sitting outside thinking they're all going to die the next day and every single person talking is chatting about how much they miss their wives and kids and how they hope their wife and kids are okay without their dad who just died fighting for this country and they ask their gay team member about his family… he has to say nothing at all or lie and say he has no family. HE MIGHT DIE TOMORROW AND HE CAN'T TALK ABOUT HIS FAMILY. this is horrible.

    everyone should think about this. if we had to vote 60 years ago if blacks could have the same rights, it wouldn't have passed, but we didn't vote, it passed…and the world is a better place. let's do the same for gay votes. it's not the gay men who need to keep it secret, it's the offended who need to learn acceptance. Most people you ask who are fighting say that they'd be okay with it anyway, so let's change this already.

    Oh, great. He speaks fluent Arabic and the army is willing to let a man go with skills we so desperately need just because he likes to smoke some pole? Good job guys.

    Re: Unbelievable!

    How do you know he knew the policy going in? This policy only started 11 years ago, it's not that old so maybe he DIDN'T know it going in.

    When they are all sitting outside thinking they're all going to die the next day and every single person talking is chatting about how much they miss their wives and kids and how they hope their wife and kids are okay without their dad who just died fighting for this country and they ask their gay team member about his family… he has to say nothing at all or lie and say he has no family.

    Re: DRINNY – Thank you soooo much for this.. it is exactly what i was thinking… if someone from my Corporate Office gets fired because of their sexual orientation they can sue this company and probably own it in the end but our government can just do whatever they want..

    the only thing more sad than the government discharging this great man is the moronic bigoted people that have posted before me with their hateful bullshit.. straight men talk about their girlfriends back home and it keeps them going… gay men should be able to have that same right when talking about their men back home.. come on people what freakin century are we in?!?!?!?!?



  40. 40

    I'm from Canada, where our gay army members are OUT and NO ONE has made a complaint about being uncomfortable. Why? Because we're all human and fighting for the same cause. For the "Land of the Free" it certainly doesn't sound that free to me.

    When they are all sitting outside thinking they're all going to die the next day and every single person talking is chatting about how much they miss their wives and kids and how they hope their wife and kids are okay without their dad who just died fighting for this country and they ask their gay team member about his family… he has to say nothing at all or lie and say he has no family.

  41. 41

    why does the whole fucking world have to know you're gay? good for you, now quit shoving it in everyone's face! and FYI i was in the military. the policy exists for a reason, which is for the (gay) person's safety. a lot of military people don't want to be sleeping with gays in close quarters. and yes, there's tons of sock parties.



  42. 42

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Oh please! EVERYTHING you post is fucking racist you krazy kunt!
    Aren't you the same douche who posted "I fucking hate Mexicans"
    Aren't you the same douche who refered to me as a "homosexual foreigner"
    -as an insult on the Palin post the other day?
    Aren't you the same douche who claims to be an anthropologist(ha!) and can't comprehend why Obama could never live his life as a white man?
    Aren't you the same douche who claims Latino people ruined your neighborhood?
    …shall I continue you uneducated piece of shit?



  43. 43

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – The majority of people on this blog can't stand you because of the racist shit you post!
    Everyone knows you are a xenophobic hater!
    I am not because I was brought up RIGHT! -PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE!
    You, on the other hand OMG can't imagine what happened to you early on to make you so ugly and full of hate!
    WHICH IS WHY YOU HAVE NO LIFE AND ARE ALL ALONE IN THIS WORLD!



  44. 44

    perez why don't you take your fat ass and sign up for the military (do something PRODUCTIVE), out yourself to everyone who doesn't ask or care, and see how many sock parties you're a member of. then maybe you'll shut your fucking trap about why the policy is in place.

    do you fucking get the point that it's not saying you can't join if you're gay? the policy is saying if you're gay WE DON'T WANT YOU TO SHOVE IT DOWN OUR THROATS (no pun intended). and there's no damn reason for you to. it's for SAFETY reasons, and we all know how much you whine about violence is being bad, no one deserves it, whah whah whah. if this policy was lifted there would be a huge increase in violence. so quit defending this guy only because he's gay!



  45. 45

    Re: SeeinStarz – why does the whole world need to know that you're straight…. because people talk about their loved ones back home that's why! if you were in the military as you say then you know that… and anyone should be able to talk about their loved ones back home no matter what their gender or sexuality.. it is bigots like you that keep ridiculous poicies like this in place…
    "it is not them who should learn secrecy but others who should learn to accept their fellow officer for his accomplishments and bravery rather than who he chooses to love"

    i feel sorry for people like you who think that just becuase things like sock parties happen that they should be accepted.. you were probably a participant and men filled with hate should be the ones being tossed out of the military because it is unamerican to hate your fellow man based on race, religion, or sexual orientation



  46. 46

    Re: SeeinStarz – you are disgusting.. and a complete disgrace to our country… please stop admitting that a bigot like you was in the service.. it is giving good men a bad name.. sad sad sad..

    Gay marriage is a STATE LEGISLATIVE ISSUE! It is LEGAL in my state and other surrounding states in the NE!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – "President Obama mandated Thursday that nearly all hospitals extend visitation rights to the partners of gay men and lesbians and respect patients' choices about who may make critical health-care decisions for them, perhaps the most significant step so far in his efforts to expand the rights of gay Americans."
    From Washington Post-April 16, 2010
    Why didn't Bush push for this?
    Why didn't Bush repeal DADT?
    I KNOW WHY!



  49. 49

    Everyone who's bitching that they "don't want to be uncomfortable" etc…has it ever occurred to anyone that some of these gay soldiers might have HUSBANDS/WIVES and children?! How would you feel if you were away from home risking your life and weren't allowed to talk about your significant other or family because you would be discharged from the service?

    Seriously, I bet at least half of you grew up in flyover country and either didn't go to college or went to some gross community college.



  50. 50

    Re: anotherjen – So you're saying that because it IS THE POLICY that we should just blindly accept it? Because there also used to be a policy that women couldn't vote and black people couldn't have freedom. So should people have just blindly followed those policies too just because the law said they should? I don't think so.



  51. 51

    This is ridiculous! If our present government and President do nothing about this then I will lose ALL respect for them!

    This guy is a hero fighting for our country! You can bet you'll never see a rich Republicans son on the front lines or even going into the military for that matter!



  52. 52

    Re: big_momma[/re] Well there was one gay man in the army who got discharged because someone broke into his email account and read his emails so he didn't violate any part of don't ask don't tell at all so even gays who follow the rules can get discharged that's why this policy is a load of bullshit.



  53. 53

    Dear Perez,
    I'm not sure if you even read these but if you do please ignore these ignorant ppl! I mean yeah you get on my nerves sometimes but i REALLY think that this law is sooooo stupid!! I wish there was more i could do for Equal rights for the gay community. I myself am not gay and a don't even know many ppl that are but for some reason this issue and gay marriage really make me mad! There are men and women who would die for our freedom and they cant because they are gay!! So stupid! Keep fighting the good fight perez!!!



  54. 54

    He's lucky to be out. Now he won't have to spend my (and your) tax dollars committing illegal and immoral acts in the name of "fighting terror." Screw the military complex, and screw this war-loving country. Don't Ask Don't Tell is just one of many ludicrous strictures associated with the U.S. Government.

    He should have chosen an honorable profession

    Re: contrarianchick – I suggest you get the fuck out of this country then - what the hell do you do for a living, punk bitch?



  57. 57

    This story really gets my hackles up. There is no reason in the world for DADT to be in the military except to continue further harassment and openly encourage discrimintation. There is no reason why sexuality should have anything to do with defending our country. For those that are commenting that it makes people feel "weird" about saying whether they are gay or not…be sure to change that to YOU FEEL WEIRD. I certainly don't. I don't judge someone by their sexuality and no one else should either. It doesn't affect anyone but that person themself. It's obviouse there are too many simple, close minded and bigoted people on this thread and in the world. If European countries can provide the same treatment for EVERYONE…why can't this supposedly GREAT country? God bless you Lt. Choi and I am humbled by your service and deeply ashamed of my military to fire you for being yourself. Hope this awful policy is overturned finally. More Equality is needed across the boards. This from a straight white woman no less.



  58. 58

    Re: check the facts you twits – WOW…you give all new meaning to the word "IGNORANT". Do you seriously think that just because someone is gay they can't control themselves around ANYONE of the same sex? How retarded are you???? Gay people don't check out "everyone" like your paranoid minds seems to think. Do YOU check out EVERY GUY/GIRL being straight? (You may have a female pic…but you could be a dude for all I know or care.) You seriously need to "check your OWN facts twit"! Ignorance breeds stupidity and you have it in spades obviously.



  59. 59

    Re: Unbelievable! – Some coward he is to not once, twice but THREE times to chain himself to the White House in order to try and make a statement and a stand about discrimination. Yeah…you are sooo right. NOT! If no one stands up to an obviously discriminatory policy then there will never be change. In the same vein….if Rosa Parks hadn't sat in her seat, what would have happened? It takes 1 person to start and I am honored of his service. Obviously you have never been int he military to be able to comment on whether Lt. Choi is a "coward". But you sure are I would bet.



  60. 60

    Re: aepanda – It is a big deal when you get fired over it. Attitudes such as yours will continue to keep up in the dark ages and will continue to keep America bigoted. He came out because he knew there was a chance it could be overturned as it should be. No other job anywhere will fire you if you are gay. How is that NOT discriminatory? Damn….



  61. 61

    He's right it the military that suffers. Do you want the best person on the frontline with your son/daughter/husband/wife/brother/sister OR the best straight person?



  62. 62

    What an absolute slap in the face to what America is supposed to stand for. Here we are in 2010 and still w/ the bullshit !!!!!! Racisim - Bigotry - homphobia !!!!! Oh my when will it ever end.



  63. 63

    Re: big_momma – No, DADT requires you to actively hide who you are. Any personal emails, letters, phone calls, etc that hint at you being gay will lead to a massive investigation. No everyone doesn't need to know that someone he is gay, but he should have the right to live openly enough to not have to worry when someone accidentally reads a message from a love interest.

    Re: supersongbird – Jesus fucking Christ! Will your special needs bashing ever end? Re post #47 Are you telling me that if Barry tried to make it a FEDERAL LAW NOT STATE LAW that gay marriage is legal that it wouldn't happen or at least get peeps talking about it. Think about it, moron. Barry rammed thru socialized healthcare even know most Americans didn't want it. If Barry TRULY supported gay rights then he would try to get the feds to make that shit legal across the entire country. Which is it: is Barry weak and ineffective or does he have the balls to make broad changes?

    IM GAY, BUT DID YOU SEE DAN CHOI ON MY LIFE ON THE D LIST?! IM SORRY BUT HIS QUEENY ASS WAS WAY TO MUCH. I WOULDVE GAVE HIM THE BOOT, OR HEEL TOO!!!

    You know explain something to me here… People of same sex orientaion are born and raised in this country. So shouldn't they fact that they want to put their lives on the line to protect our freedom mean something? I've tried the life style and it didn't agree with me, But someone who fights for our freedom is someone I will support, gay, lesbian, Bi, Trans, whatever.

    Oh, and I don't owe you any fucking explanation for my use of the word "retard" in the context I use it in!
    It really is too funny to watch you trying to back-pedal on all your racist remarks.
    The evidence is posted all up in here and you cannot erase or deny all the lies and hateful shit you wrote!
    You are a paranoid, delusional, uneducated, neo-nazi low life who hates the wrong people for the wrong reasons!
    AND YOU ALWAYS WILL BE!!!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – I'm telling you if Obama tried to pass this as a federal law the Republicans would fight it every step of the way! Same as everything else he tries to do!
    He doesn't get any "feds" to make shit legal imbecile. Has to go through congress and the senate lol!
    If you ever bothered to read some of my posts you'd know I have issues with the President and balls which he should sometimes just call Nancy and Pelosi!
    Being a politician, Obama had no reason to rile up the bigots over his support of gay marriage BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IT IS STATE LEGISLATED!
    Call him a flip-flopper all you want. He's coming around on this!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – "Socialized medicine"? Seriously? ???
    Shit, you really are insane!
    With the intellect of a SPONGE you sit and soak up that Fox news propaganda, then regurgitate your twisted version in here! I mean REALLY… lol!
    If you had even moderate intelligence you'd realize health care for all Americans is not a bad thing. But this is YOU ffs!
    With true right-wing hypocrisy teabaggers like you freaked out because of the MANDATE! Which is Mitt Romney's BABY!
    Our healthcare is NOT "socialized" stupid lol… Not even close!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – "Which is it: is Barry weak and ineffective or does he have the balls to make broad changes?" you ask?
    Every president promised to get healthcare reformed-Obama did it.
    He got the consumer financial bill through. Now it is ILLEGAL to give out bad loans!
    The banks that Regan deregulated and Bush allowed to run amok in a declining economy can no longer fuck us!
    Obama secured $20 billion for the people and businesses of the Gulf so "poor BP" cannot cut and run on them!
    Obama made sure heartless Republicans did not get away with discontinuing benefits for the unemployed!
    Obama is fighting the extension of the Bush tax cuts FOR THE RICH!
    Obama cut taxes for 95% of Americans and wants to raise by 3% on those who can well afford to pay it!
    Much more I could list but, yawn, I'm bored with you, batshit!
    Just one more thing though-OBAMA WILL REPEAL DADT!
    Now-GO FUCK YOUR OWN SELF! I have my man waiting for me lol…

    perez talks about the military, something which he knows absolutely nothing about. dont talk about bravery or anything like that if you have never been in the military. anyone that serves knows what they are getting into. if this Lt was in the Marine Corps he would have been fucking shot. There is a reason why the policy is in place. I'm tired of hearing what he is doing is 'courageous'. Go be an interior designer or blogger, if you are gay you have no place in the military. You are making more work for me for having to court martial or discharge all the military members that kill or assault you.

    They've known about his preference a while. I don't get it… why NOW?

    Re: check the facts you twits
    Fucking homophobic!! It shouldn't be a fucking issue for people. Get the sfuck over it, people should be allowed to fuck whoever they want.
    Sorry to point this out but gay people don't just check everyone out all the time at whoever is available.
    You know what it is gives them the "hebbie jeebies" good. People shouldn't have feel ashamed about this shit.
    GLBT young people have some of the highest rates of suicide and self harm and its due to the institutionalised homophobia of DADT

    i think you are all a bunch of assholes for posting rude shit, i think the policy should be non existent. Who gives a fuck if they shower together, or live together and it makes them feel uncomfortable. Because what we are trying to do as a community is make it so we don't have to act like we aren't who we are because it makes others uncomfortable. Its fucking 2010 PEOPLE NEED TO GET THE FUCK OVER IT. It's extremely hypocritical that our country is supposed to accept people of every single different kind of thing but they still can't except the gays because it's not the norm and that is down right ridiculous
