It's Done! President Obama Signs The Repeal On 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell!'

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikInspirationBarack ObamaLGBT



We're ECSTATIC to report that President Barack Obama has officially signed the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, which meant that gay and lesbians were not allowed to serve in the military openly, and will become effective September 20th!

He says in a statement:

"As Commander in Chief, I have always been confident that our dedicated men and women in uniform would transition to a new policy in an orderly manner that preserves unit cohesion, recruitment, retention and military effectiveness… As of September 20th, service members will no longer be forced to hide who they are in order to serve our country. Our military will no longer be deprived of the talents and skills of patriotic Americans just because they happen to be gay or lesbian. I want to thank all our men and women in uniform, including those who are gay or lesbian, for their professionalism and patriotism during this transition. Every American can be proud that our extraordinary troops and their families, like earlier generations that have adapted to other changes, will only grow stronger and remain the best fighting force in the world and a reflection of the values of justice and equality that the define us as Americans."

We couldn't have said it better ourself!

Such a proud day for Americans! Now, let's keep the equal rights coming!

We can be strong! Ride, ride, pony, ride, ride!

  3. 3

  5. 5

    FFS this?? Mario is on vacation and his interns don't know what to do when a real, breaking celebrity story comes through the pipe.

    Not hard to be first on this site any more. Amy Winehouse dies and the only news here is about gay shit. This isn't "celebrity juice" it's "gay shit" that's why everyone is on the other sites, this went from a celeb site to a gay site. BTW, if anyone is here, Amy Winehouse died, might want to check out a celeb site for details

  8. 8

    Amy Winehouse is dead and this is the first story to appear on this shitty site?

  9. 9

    A truely sad day for America and a big step in the wrong direction.

  10. 10

    Totally agree with the comments below!! RIP Amy Winehouse??

  11. 11

    I dont personally like the miltary but to each its own! I don't believe it should really matter if your gay or straight when you join the miltary you all have a job to do! It doesn't matter what your sexual orientation is when you apply to work in a school, hospital or even in a law firm so why should it matter to join the miltary? Not telling means to me that your not proud of who you are and that you just want to hide it! Dnt ask dnt tell is bull!!

  12. 12

    Mario will cover that Amy Winehouse died, uhm, about 3 days from now… breaking news

  13. 13

    as for DADT…big deal… that just means they can't be kicked out of the military for being gay… that does not stop others from beating the crap out of them, making fun of them, etc. etc. etc…. WAKE UP MARIO!

    Re: Mad Dog – You're a homophobic moron.

  15. 15

    Re: Mad Dog – A truly sad day for you, you HATE MONGER…may you and others of your kind slowly seep away out of existence like the dinosaur.

  16. 16

    Yeh!! Great news!! Country is debt from hell but the President and the gays care only about THE REPEAL BS. Just like the President, pushed down everybody's throat to make them priority over EVERYTHING else in this Country. Nothing is more important then this on capitol hill… Country is broke and that is all you care about is dont ask dont tell>>>

  17. 17

    Re: Mad Dog – you're an asshole. everyone should have the same rights, no natter what their sexual orientation may be.

  18. 18

    This is your President at its BEST!!!!

  19. 19

    O BYE the way!! What is so hot about a guy with purple lips???

    Re: Yenkme – Yeah thanks to your beloved chimp boy George W Bush! DO NOT FORGET WHERE ALLLLLLLLLLL THIS CRAP CAME FROM!!!! Stupid fucking republicans have been expecting Obama to clean up their FUCKED UP MESS since day 100!

  21. 21

    Re: Yenkme – RACIST!

  22. 22

    Screw "don't ask, don't tell"…..try passing a legitimate budget, creating jobs and a working healthcare system. Oh, and social security that I will probably not get even though I've put 30 yrs of money into it so far…..THAT is what we should be worried about!!!!!!!

  23. 23

    Yea are you going to enlist now? I mean you did say We can be strong! Ride, ride, pony, ride, ride! I assume you will be on point at the head of the gay Calvary coming to save the world LOL.

  24. 24

    Re: beccaboo1212 – I completely agree!!! I get it's a great thing that this was passed, but the budget affects more Americans than that does. Worry about that right now Obama!

    Who cares, if you join the military you are asking to be sacrificed by globalists.

    So does this mean they are going back to the old days before don't ask don't tell where they kicked gays out immediately and if it wasn't immediate they were hazed to death?

  32. 32

    Re: Mad Dog – DICK LICK!!

  33. 33

    that's great but I'd rather have him fix the economy first!!!

  34. 34

    Didnt he promise to do this as soon as he got into the White House back in early 2009??? Oh - thats right - the next election is only a little over a year away….

  35. 35

    The problem with this is it is NOT a vitory. Just because DADT has been repealed, it does not change much besides the fact they can serve openly. There will be no benefits, housing, and etc.. for their partners, even if they are married. The mlitary does not recognize gay marriages. So even though we sit here preparing for this and training our military and organizations it is just to prepare and understand what is going to happen in the coming months.

    Re: JackWad

    Its called racist when u speak up about our Country now if u dont believe in everything everybody(low %) believes in!! I dont care about the gays or anybody else as long as they are not hurting people in this world. Live your life the way you want and dont shove your believes down everybody's throat. Its like hanging out with Born again Christians!
    Right now are country is in major turmoil and the lawyers and money(wasted) that can be used for more important things. FEEDING THE HUNGRY in our COUNTRY!!
    If your thinking BUSH put us here, you really need to watch another channel. This guy will go down in HISTORY as the worst PRESIDENT and this wont be me putting this in our history books!!! You blinds fools following the wolf in sheep cloths!!

    O ! The purple lips was not racist, it was a ????. See how everything is racist!!!!
    There is a lot of GOOD looking black men and it is not him with his mack daddy walk!!
    Look who helped the Professor down the steps when they had the beerfest with the statetrooper and the professor!! The President left his own kind there to get to the beer and the trooper helped him down the stairs. You people dont care that this guy is sham to the people.

    Re: JackWad – Try again fucktard. Your hero Slick Willy Clinton created DADT. It's great to live with your head up your ass instead of in the real world, with REAL facts isn't it?
