And I thought I had a personal story to tell about Don't Ask Don't Tell...
This video just in from the New York Times op-ed online pages. Yep, there's a commercial beforehand - but someone's got to pay the bills - so wait for the video.
It's more than just powerful - it hits your soul, and involves the intimate art of touching and feeling. Emotionally.
Which, under DADT, you don't get to even think about - much less talk about.
Wait for the last line by the servicemember's partner. If it doesn't make you cry, it should at least make you go "hmmm..."
It should also help you understand why DADT is morally reprehensible. And it should most definitely make you think what stupid Americans we must seem to the rest of the world.
The time to end this is NOW. The American people already believe the time for Don't Ask Don't Tell is over.
Hello Washington~! Can you hear us now?
