SLDN Filing Lawsuit To Secure Equal Benefits For Spouses Of Gay Troops!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal Matters

sldn filing lawsuit for equal rights in military

The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) was a major step in the right direction…now let's finish the job!

Back in July, we were disgusted to learn that even though DADT was being repealed, gays in the military would still not receive the same benefits for their same-sex partners as straight couples.

Now, the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) is planning to file a lawsuit in federal court by the end of the month, in an effort to secure the same rights/benefits for same-sex couples that are given to straight couples.

The lawsuit will go against the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and it claims that the "federal Defense of Marriage Act violates the Fifth Amendment right to due process, in what the group says will be the first case of its kind."

Here's what executive director of SLDN Aubrey Sarvis had to say about the lawsuit:

Doonesbury Character Roz Comes Out After End Of DADT

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

doonesbury-gay-strip-1.jpg

Welcome to the gayborhood!

Now this is what we like to see. People using their outlets to spread the good word, like the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” The cartoon Doonesbury has been in circulation for 40+ years, but this past week's columns have been some of the best, if you ask us.

The character of Roz, because of the repeal of DADT, decides to finally come out of the closet as a lesbian to her commanding officer, her mother and everyone in her unit. The nice thing about it is that the humor plays to the positive of the situation, not the negative.

Check out the first of the series (above) and then click the gallery to see the following strips.

Bravo, Garry Trudeau! Thanks for the support!

Michele Bachmann Really Pushes Her Desire To Reinstate Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Michele Bachmann Wants To Reinstate Dont Ask Dont Tell Crazy Eyes Photo

We were disgusted to tell you about this when we first heard it, but now we're hearing what else she has to say on it and it boggles our minds.

It's one thing to have disagreeing opinions on fiscal issues, but these opinions suffer equal rights. These opinions hinder American lives, lives who cause no harm.

As she masquerades her hate in moral superiority, Michele Bachmann says:

Boo On You! Audience Rudely Responds To Gay Solider Stephen Hill At The Republican Debate!

A vote for Rick Santorum is a vote for homophobia, ignorance and disrespect for our military.

Last night, Santorum was posed a question from a gay solider serving in Iraq about his stance on the Dont' Ask, Don't Tell repeal. True to form, Santorum disgustingly stood there and insulted this solider's bravery and loyalty to his country by insisting that the repeal was a "social extermination" the military is trying out and then asserted he would reinstitute the horrendous policy if he were elected as president. He added:

Discharged Gay Troops Have Trouble Re-enlisting After DADT Repeal

discharged troops have trouble reenlisting after dadt repeal

This is seriously not cool.

While we're of course thrilled that Don't Ask Don't Tell has been repealed, we're NOT thrilled to hear that gay former troops who want to re-enlist are having a lot of trouble doing so!

Here are some of the issues that these former troops are being forced to contend with:
