Senate Votes To Repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

Gays and lesbians in the U.S. military are rejoicing at the news that the US Senate has voted to repeal the controversial ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy — the so-called ‘gay ban’ on gays serving in the military.

On Friday (May 28), a Senate panel approved an amendment to repeal the ban by 16-12. Later, lawmakers in the House approved the amendment by 234 to 194. The measure still requires a full Senate vote.

This means that more than 60% of gay enlisted soldiers will now ‘come out’ to their superiors — and demand special treatment in the process.

Gays in the military will no longer be forced to hide in plain sight. Gay soldiers can now solicit each other for sex openly in the barracks without risking a dishonorable discharge.

The ‘don’t ask’ policy was originally intended as a solution to the military practice of seeking out gay soldiers for discharge. As long as the soldiers didn’t reveal their sexual orientation, they were safe.

But since the policy was put in place, more than 10,000 gay and lesbian soldiers have been discharged for violating the policy.

A great new day is dawning for the United States armed forces!

    Sandra this is a good thing. No one should be forced to hide their true identity. SN: I thought you was a Lesbian??

    Sandra I can’t tell if you’re happy about this (which as a lesbian I figured you would be) or if you’re being cynical (which as a lesbian I figured you would be). I think this is way overdue. I hardly doubt that gay soldiers are going to start humping in the barracks. They still have to comply with the Uniform Code of Military Justice. To my knowledge that hasn’t been repealed.

    Who cares, not all gay men are feminine sissies. Look at kurumo from the real world. Gays are people too,.. Sandra you of all people should know this. I don’t assume just because your a Lesbun your a butch dike. Good for them. It’s 2010 , no one should hide who they are.

    Ms.Everything says:

    Idk I kinda feel Sandra on this one but probably for different reasons. To me its a safety issue. For every gay soldier there is a homophobic one more than likely. I just see a lot of people getting hurt because of this. Not saying that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was perfect but it did have its good points whereas now people are gonna start coming out everywhere and inciting the lunatics. Jmo though

    Being an Air Force veteran and a wife of an active duty member, changing this policy is not a good ideal. The AF and Navy are able to accept gays and lesbo’s serving openly but the Army and Marines are not. When these Marines and Army dudes found out that the person they have been sharing a dirt hole with for months and showering with is gay all hell is going to break loose. People are goin to be killed, point blank. Everyone in the military knows who the gays and lesbo’s are, no need for the policy to be changed so they can feel better bout themselves, and straight people should not have to accommodate their lifestyles and be politically correct around them. When you join the military you know what you are getting yourself into you knew what the rules were and being openly gay was not acceptable. I’m tellin you it’s goin to be a massacre in the Army and Marine branches if this policy is changed.

    @Ms.Everything I agree…Your sexuality is your business and you do not need to go around announcing it. It is plenty of military people that are homophoic and it is definitely going to effect the workplace if people go around and announce their same sex attraction. And may even start confrontations!

    In my news anchor voice………”This just in, he are getting reports of mass out breaks of homophobia at military bases all over the world. Symptoms include but not limited to rash unreasonable beliefs that every homosexual person you know is uncontrollably attracted to you, fear of. and anger towards anyone of the same sex touching you, standing or sitting too close to you, or looking at you too long and paranoia with regards to bending over in front of anyone of the same sex. If you think you may have developed homophobia please look in the mirror immediately fool nobody wants your dumb ugly ass”. We now return to your locally scheduled program.

    Am glad for this! If somebody is willing to fight and die for our country no one should even give a damn if they march around with a **** and some balls in their mouth or do PT with a strap on. As long as they are a good soldier who cares?

    I am not in anyway homophobic but I will never understand this need that gay people have to be noticed everywhere. Maybe it’s coz I’m straight.

    Anyhow, feel free to be who you are but know the place and time. This news may be liberating on paper, but when reality bites…..???

    I know the same way I would not like to share a barrack/shower/private space with a random man is the same way I feel about a Lesbian up in my grill.

    So they may have to campaign for gay and Lesbian barracks and this could breed ill feeling about special treatment in the hetro camp.

    Only time will tell.

    sandra’s sexuality on vaca too? that write up is pretty tacky. good for them. the whole separate showers and such is silly. what str8 people always fail to understand is just because a person is gay does not mean they’re interested in you.

    just like they have the right to not be harrassed for coming out, a str8 person will always be respected. the main one screaming and complaining about it will be the main one nobody wants in that way anyways, generally speaking.

    pointhimout says:

    i too agree with the posters that ur sexuality doesn’t have to broadcast to the world, despite ellen and glaad and others making it seem like you better. not everybody is interested in making their sexuality or illness their plight in life. if you ask me what i like i’ll tell you. other than that, i still choose to not broadcast and wear lace boyshorts under my bball shorts.

    I’m an AF vet and I can tell you that the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy should’ve never been in place. WE knew who was gay and who wasn’t in the dorms. It was their business and no one was outing them.

    Repealing the law will only keep those who are gay from being discharged because of it. Yes, there may be some backlash from the homophobic, insecure servicemen/women, but I don’t think it will be any worse than all the swinging and cheating going on in base housing.

    With ALL due respect to a vet and mother….but that was ignorant as hell to say. STRAIGHT people should not have to accommodate? Should have to PC around them? REALLY? Ok, well what exactly are they accommodating? the use of hateful homophobic words, jokes ore gestures? Thats going to be a big inconvenience? AMAZING, The repeal of this gives me mixed feelings, gives me pause as well…but simply because of the safety and or isolation of these soldiers…but thats the key. they ARE soldiers, and whatever comes they way, they can handle. Saying that straights have should not have to accommodate is STUPID, wife and mother. While your at it let “blackaphobic” people say what they want, where they want, because well they should not have to accommodate, or “muslimphobic”, “womenphobic” which could not serve simply for having a vagina… what about short people, tall people…ugly people or pretty people…NO ONE should have to accommodate…so so ignorant. (yes I made up words, since i’m educationphobic,i ask for your accommodation to my ignorance too…

    So every time you have sex it is strictly for procreation purposes? You never just wanted to get off with your man? Of course you have which makes you a big hypocrite for making that statement.

    Furthermore, repealing “DADT” simply means that people won’t have to lie and cover and deny themselves who they are. It doesn’t mean wild gay orgies are going to become the norm. Ignorance such as yours is the problem with this world.

    Also, it seems as if you’re making a religious argument. Such arguments have no place in politics.

    Now these solders can serve openly and honotably!!!!

    @EJLOVE
    Wanting to have sex with someone of your same sex is a choice. Your race and gender are not a choice. You can control who you want to have sex with, you cannot control your race and gender so you trying to use race and gender as being the same as a lifestyle choice is not the same. Straight people should not have to accommodate another person’s lifestyle choice, if they don’t agree with it. Like I said before homo’s knew what they were getting themselves into when they joined the military and I have seen it firsthand how gays and lesbo’s are treated in the service from enlisted and officers. Straight military members should not have to go to a sensitivity class on how to act around someone who chooses a lifestyle that they already know is not accepted in the military. That’s like saying you get a new co-worker in who is a convicted child rapist and your boss is tellin you you have to be nice to them no matter what they have done because it wasn’t your child they raped. Bottom line the Army and Marines are not going to accommodate to the gays…. and I don’t think they should have to

    SadisticallySweet says:

    @MrsMantha We are both AF vets, with 2 very different opinions on this. Although I respect your opinion, I have to ask you a question.

    You stated “Straight people should not have to accommodate another person’s lifestyle choice, if they don’t agree with it”. With that said, why should anyone that’s gay have to accommodate you by being quiet about who they are and what they like? Everyone should practice tolerance. You don’t have to agree, but gay people are in this world whether you like it or not. The same people you served next to and would shed blood for, shouldn’t be treated any differently.

    A sin is a sin. No one is greater than the next one. So please miss me acting like the lie you told last week or last month is worse than homosexuality.

    Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and
    shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of
    your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
    (For all these abominations have the men of the land done,
    which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the
    land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued

    and worshipped and served the creature more than the
    Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God
    gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did
    change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the
    woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men
    working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves
    that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as
    they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave
    them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are
    not convenient;”

    The troops shouldn’t have sex on their minds or want special treatment. There are some very serious wars going on, that should be their main concern. They better focus on survival and that requires teamwork.

    MrsMantha says:

    Thank you BrealistiK, with this policy changing now it’s goin to throw the soldiers off the mission cause they wondering if their counterparts are having lewd thoughts about them. And yes I know not every gay/lesbo wants everyone, but no soilders wants to have to think about that during this war. Once the war is over then maybe it might be a better time to revisit this policy, but even then the Army and Marines are not goin to sit well with openly gays and lesbo’s in their units…..

    esquire says:

    attorneymom still did NOT answer the question. Every time you have sex, is it for procreation purposes? More than likely no. So despite the scriptures you quoted, you’re a hypocrite.

    And like I said before, your scriptures have no place in deciding the direction of the military. Furthermore, you quote all these passages without an inkling into any meaning beyond their plain reading. As typical with people like you, you won’t actually think about my post. You’ll probably respond with more passages. So here’s a commonly overlooked one for you:

    Luke 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?
    26 He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
    27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
    28 And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

    esquire says:

    Based on some of the arguments I’ve read, it sounds as if some people on this board would prefer to let bigotry and ignorance win over equality and justice. Imagine these same arguments on the floor of Congress during the debates of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or in front of the Supreme Court during oral arguments for Brown v. Board of Education.

Why can’t you just act normal, and not be an attention whore to let the whole world know you are gay….

    Side Note…I went to a party last night. The DJ said, “all the dykes in the house out your hands up.” They put their hands up and screamed and then he said “Ain’t nothing wrong with loving pu***, I love pu*** too”. I’m sorry but don’t y’all think that was hella ignorant? LOL

    Trying to compare the Civil Rights Act, a person’s gender,race, or height to a person’s CHOICE is an insult. Things you have no control over should have equality and justice but a person choosing a certain lifestyle and expecting other’s to accept it, plays no part in equality and justice. So this person wants to be with their same sex and they don’t want anyone to look at them differently, no one has to accept that lifestyle but you. You choose to put yourself in a predicament where people are going to judge you, call you names, be disgusted by you and your actions. A short black woman was born that way and they is nothing she can do about that, she can not change her color,height,or gender. (Well in this day, you can) Everyone is judged to a certain extent and no it’s not right, but the difference is one is a choice and the other is not. Call me a bigot if you want but I (and everyone else) have the right to chose what I will and will not accept from others. I do not condone homosexuality nor do I condone violence, but I do know how majority of the military thinks when it comes to this subject matter.

    You continue to astound me with your level of ignorance. Are you GAY? if so then you can say its a choice. Are you straight? did you CHOOSE to be straight? So having a gay soldier is akin to a CHILD RAPIST? really? So all blacks steal and rob and murder, all whites are serial killers and swindlers? want to take it away from gender? cool, all “straight” men are dogs? I was going to get upset but I pity you. Your mindset is what got a member of my family murdered. “the gays” lol ok…well “the straights” ain’t got accommodate shat, no body from what I read is asking that. But what is being asked is that gays accommodate the straights so THEY can be comfortable, in fact if you really look it, GAYS in the military are attending sensitivity training every day, because they have to watch what they say or do…so “the straights” don’t feel uncomfortable. For the record I am STRAIGHT, and former ARMY so i have a dog in this fight. I really wish, that people like you, who have NO understanding, willingness or means to understand, would not even presume to know anything about a lifestyle which u don’t live. Your really a part of the problem. Your Bigot, homophone and more, but I will afford you, what you don’t afford “the gays” Respect.

    For those askin y gays have to be seem and heard aren’t you?? Heterosexuals can live their lives as they wish in the service and gays should be allowed the same right. They shldnt have to repress their sexuality to make others comfy IMO. Long as they can do their job duties that’s all that matters.

    I belive ppl are born gay overall for some ppl it may be a choice but I don’t think that’s the case for most. I know I like men that’s not a choice I made it just IS!! :-)

    Its pretty clear that you are a bigot, its pretty clear that you have an issue with “the gays” but how bout you try to THINK about what THEY do in the bedroom…does everyone look at you and think how you get your “straight” back yacked? highly doubt it… didn’t the bible say Judge ye not? lest ye be judged? so since everyone is on this high and mighty kick, why don’t we just do what the bible says? You can’t possibly know what a choice is…so why would you presume to be so confident about it? Who gives a damn at who looks at them differently…they from what I understand just don’t want to be kicked out of serving, because of who they are attracted to…please the whole thing reeks of bigotry…but why would you smell it, when you spray it on everyday. ridiculous…

    I am not generalizing any group of people, Who you want to have sex with IS A CHOICE. Just like straight people choose if they want to be with a tall,short,heavy set,slender person, that is their preference. I don’t care what your preference is, I didn’t ask. I’m not homophobic I don’t condone the lifestyle just like I don’t condone other things. I choose not associate myself with anything that I do not condone. Gays knew from the get go once they entered the military that their lifestyle is not accepted so if this policy does change not everyone is going to accept it with “open arms” and they shouldn’t have to. You want to be gay, get a job that allows you to be gay openly. There is a reason the DADT policy is in place and it shouldn’t be changed. And you can pity me all you and call me names, you make no difference in my life. I’m stating my thoughts and opinion just like everyone else on here. Bottom line your sexual preference is a choice and no one has to accept your choice but you.

    Who your ATTRACTED to is NOT a choice, its NATURE. STOP thinking of SEX and you MAY break your head out of the ignorance enough to realize that. IT IS NOT A FREAKING CHOICE. Now if what your saying is a gay person, who is attracted to the same gender, and CHOOSES to sleep with the same gender, then I understand that…but then the argument is, why shouldn’t they? YOU a hetro woman are attracted to men, so YOU choose to SLEEP with what your NATURE is attracted to right? so what’s the difference? ooh oh i know, because its “right” GTFOH. Take YOUR mind of THEIR bedroom, and look it at for what it is, whom THEIR NATURE is attracted to. Far as your argument concerning what they signed up for, Women who fought for the military KNEW what they signed up for, got in, wasn’t happy and now want to enter combat…she they not have the right? IT JUST STUPID, once again I don’t whole heartedly agree with the repeal, simply because of safety…but NO ONE, gay straight or other should have to HIDE who they are, its stupid! GROW UP! You don’t want to see it or know about it…IGNORE it. And some all yall women on this blog DAILY screaming about the DL problem and how “the gays” should just come out…stop hiding…now you say stay hidden? you can’t have it both ways…no no you can’t that would make you “BI” and well we know that is CHOICE, that should not be made, right MrsMantha?

    @ SadisticallySweet and EJLOVE

    You two are prior military like me, I don’t remember attending any classes about homo’s accommodating to straights, there where classes on racism and sexual assault… I saw first hand some marines and army disrespect homos all the time and the homo went for help form their superiors and didn’t receive any help. So all I’m saying is that homo’s shouldn’t expect everyone to accept their ways especially when you were told upfront that certain LIFESTYLES are not accepted in the military. I’m not saying “beat ‘em, burn ‘em, stone ‘em, etc. ” just that they should realize they are in the wrong profession for the lifestyle they want to live.

    You soo funny to me :) My point is all branches are not going to accept this new policy if it changes and IMO they should not have to. Just like your opinion is that they should. I need to grow up? I’m not coming at you calling you names asking your preference, attacking anything about you, or getting all sensitive about the subject. Just stating my opinion and I hope for your “dog’s” sake that they are able to be safe if they are a homo and this policy changes.

    @starr :cosign: Nobody is being forced to accept the homosexual lifestyle if you dont like it then look the other way they shouldnt have to hide who they are plain and simple. Not everybody has to like it or accept but it will be RESPECTED moving forward as it should be.

    Nobody has a heaven or hell to put anybody in at the end of the day. I am fire baptized holy ghost filled christian and I dont have a problem with gays or them being in the military.

    In my research I found that there are plenty of openly gay men and women serving and nobody bothers them. There have been cases where ppl have been beat up or what have you but charges were filed as they should been. I do believe it will take training and time for the org culture to coomplety adjust but I believe it will be worth it in the end.

    And you are funny to me too, i don’t what “dog’s” your referring too, if you mean “dog in this fight” its an expression, meant to explain that I too have a vested interest in this since I was in the Army.
    Further more I am sensitive about the subject, esp when YOU and others spew out hateful words and Opinions, I will challenge them with passion…I don’t have to be part of it, to understand the pain involved…its called empathy…so yes please GROW UP.

One of my best friends is a gay man serving in the Army and my heart breaks for him knowing that he’s had to keep his relationship a secret for all of these years. He does his job well and when he puts on his uniform, I don’t see a gay man or a straight man, I see a soldier. I see a man who’s served his country well. He’s not trying to “convert” anyone and he’s not forcing anyone to accept his relationship. He’s doing his job and at the end of the day he’s going home to the love of his life. He’s hurting no one. I still can’t believe that anyone would believe that being gay is a choice in this day and age. Who would choose to be harrassed, discriminated against, and mistreated for love?

    lol, thats my issue as well…I’m concerned about the infighting and the possible assaults, but a gay man is still a man…and may fight harder if they feel like their life is being threatened. Bottom line is, they want the right to serve without the fear of being found out and losing all they worked hard for. point blank, NO ONE is asking about special treatment etc…so let them have it if thats what they want, they will have to deal with whatever comes with it. simple. But saying you its a mistake to repeal it because of how Heterosexuals will feel is stupid.

How dare you, and your fat wedge fingers even type up some mess like this. 1st of all you are not with out sin. NO one is for that matter.

    Lol are you saying that you were fired from your job because they couldn’t handle a strong black women. You are the stereotypical black women that corporate America hates. It’s not because your black. it’s because your loud and ignorant. what kind of lawyer are you. you aren’t even well spoken. you sound like your average around the way chick. there are alot of prestigious black law firms in Atlanta, why not work for one of them. oh yeah you don’t have the tact nor talent to last in the real world of lawyers.

    i’m at #21, mrsmantha. i think it’s safe to say that we shouldn’t try to use analogies when discussing sexuality. you will always have someone agree or take offense to it. “rapists”…as i’m sure you’re not comparing gays to rapists or molesters. I do think classes that we attend are moreso about diversity and tolerance, not “how to act or treat a gay person.” but it’s not until it’s ur issue or something affects you that you care to be opened or sensitive to it. i’m not knocking anyone, i’m just saying.

    #29, some of that I agree with. I’ve been posting on boards for a minute and time after time I’ve and will continue to say, I’m a man. I dress as a man. I like men. That will never make me go and put on stilletos and carry a big ass purse and tight ass jeans. Those guys on ATL housewives can have that. To each their own, but no way. I’m in no way even attracted to a fem guy like that. Hell, I may as well get a woman. But as time has shown, there’s an array of gay, giving more meaning to a rainbow of flavas and choices. And note that many a “str8″ guys pluck from the gay treat quite often, and go back home to the wife/wifey. Another story for another rainy day.

    #42 LOL I knew it was coming. I kept thinking, ‘just give her time.’ AM you know I always say to you give me a bible scripture and then cuss me out. Because you quote the bible and argue your points, then when the opposition posts show, you attack. It’s the funniest thing to me, I swear.

    Homosexuality, politics and religion- these are generally three topics I wouldn’t comment on or engage in conversation. In my experience, when it comes to these three topics,ignorance has the ability to immediately creep from people’s pores. As a result,I’d typically sit back and absorb what’s being said. Not today so excuse me while I ramble……

    For starters, I DO NOT have an issue with homosexuals fighting for my country. If you have a calling to enlist in the Navy, Army, Air Force; then by all means, you have my permission to do what you must. As someone stated above, when that uniform hits that inidivual’s body, I see a soldier; someone who is willing to protect and serve. Am I supposed to see you as “less than” because you opt to sleep with a member of the same sex? While I may not condone you sleeping with someone of the same sex, I will still love you, respect you and pray for God’s protection while you’re on tour. Those on this post that proclaim to be Christians, if you read your Bible and actually put into action what you’ve read, you would know this is what you are ORDERED to do. What happened to “loving our neighbor as we must first love ourselves”? Life on this planet would be a lot easier if we all would abide by that one golden rule. Lastly, we all fall short of the glory of God however if you are quoting Scipture and then cursing someone out the next minute, Christ is NOT in you. The Holy Spirit would give you a calming effect to where you wouldn’t even think about uttering a curse word let alone being quick to anger. Choose your words carefully for there is life and death in the power of YOUR tongue. You could be blocking your own blessings by the way you treat and talk to people. Think about it!!!

    Where do some of us get off treating homosexuals as if they’re lepers? Regardless of your sexual orientation, you are still a person. You have feelings,opinions and beliefs just like I do. Is one less human because you’re gay? Why shouldn’t you have the same rights as heterosexuals? Again, regardless if you condone men sleeping with men and women sleeping with women; you should still treat that indiviual like a person and respect their opinions and feelings. Most importantly, people’s livelihoods shouldn’t be affected because of what they do behind closed doors. So, because you mentioned you’re gay you should be discharged? Are you kidding me? As someone pointed out above, me sleeping with another woman should be the LAST thing you’re worried about when in the trenches. Just like you’re trying to stay alive while completing this mission, so are they. Shoot, they have loved ones too! It’s 2010, get over yourself and your homophobic attitude. Folks have so much hate in their hearts they can’t see the forest for the trees :mad:

    Wow I have def got my dose of ignorance for the week. All yall against it act as if there are currently not gays serving there are I served with many and proudly. They Gay service emmebers are not concerned with telling the entire Army they are gay what they want to do is live thier life and not in fear everyday. Right now Gays can serve just not openly.

    For those of you that say this will take away from the mission… no i doubt it only the ignorant will do that. Those of you that say soldiers shouldnt think about sex, wtf so straight soldiers dont think about sex…please u know how much ****in is going on in Iraq… lmao …..

    Anyway like i said i suport it and know most that accept it. Yall worried bout people wamtng to fight gays that would only be the ignorant. Most of yall have no clue what goes on in the military and your views are either religious or Political. Those of us tat have served speak from expereince…

    and with all the bible quotes I see it like this most people pic and choose what they want to live by this verse or that verse…. really at the end of the day you are not in any place to judge anyone…

    Being in the military is about serving and protecting your country why the hell we need to know that some chick likes burying her face in some other dames snatch or some dude likes grabbing his ankles to get rammed by another guy is beyond me. How is advertising your sexuality beneficial to your job unless you are in the entertainment industry? All this proves to me is that homosexuals define themselves solely on their sexuality and their entire existence revolves around sex because no matter the situation or topic they feel their gayness must be given center stage. Uggghhh, how long is till they start having gay parades on military bases? these people should just seclude themselves and do what it is they truly desire and that is screw that is what they live for.

    And for the gay advocates who want to compare homosexuality to racism: Our Blackness is there for the WORLD TO SEE we can’t put it in the closet, pull it out later dress it up in ball squishing toddler shorts or construction work boots and plaid shirts when we decide to be “out”. Homosexuals, their supporters, advocates fail to understand for many people it doesn’t matter what law is placed or what kind of spin is put on it Homosexuality is unnatural and no one is going to convince us that a man laying with a man is a thing of beauty, or that lesbian sex is not some act of fustration after all if lesbians love vaginas so much why is there always some representation of the penis involved? and why is it that gay people pair up with partners that clearly are emulating the same damn gender they claim to reject? why is a gay man dating a male that is more effeminate than every woman God has ever created if what he wants is a “man”? why is a lesbian involved with some chick who thinks because she puts on a wife beater and a pair of boxers she’s now a dude yet you’re into “women”? Puhleeze this is a mental illness.
