The Democrats had their second debate this past weekend in New Hampshire, and guess who they talked about? Yeah, that's right, us. I'm beginning to wonder if all this discussion of "LGBT rights" isn't going to lead to some major starvation for attention when this political obsession with our sex/love lives is over.
Anyway, the debate happened and there's this YouTube video of the candidates discussion DADT:
Yes, I find the whole DADT debate a little ridiculous, and not just the example presented above. It's no surprise that they're all so excited to call DADT bad - a vast majority of Americans oppose it and it wouldn't require the government to give anything back to our communities that it's taken in the past. I'm wondering if they're thinking we're fresh to be recruited considering the pay gap between gay and straight workers, although I'm not sure if their narrative of queer people isn't being written entirely by Will & Grace reruns and they think we're all rich, white New Yorkers.
It is kinda fishy the way the moderator was pushing Clinton to call one of Bill's policy's a mistake.
