FINALLY the lawmakers in Washington did the right thing and repealed the odious 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' seventeen years after implementing this shameful law. Naturally, it'll take almost a year for things to get going (funny how when you grant people THE RIGHTS THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD IN THE FIRST PLACE, it takes the speed of molasses, but whatever), but after the way gay rights activists kept knocking their heads against the wall for almost two decades, it must be REALLY nice to finally stop.

Naturally, the critics claim All Sorts Of Horrible Things will happen (just as they did about racial integration in the armed forces back in the late '40s), but it seems to me that unless a gay or lesbian soldier is an idiot, they aren't going to be flaunting the fact that they're homosexual in people's faces or making passes, right? Homophobia is alive and well in the military and it's still dangerous to be gay. Any problems I see in the future will be from the homophobes, not the homosexuals.
