Last weekend, I did something I try and avoid doing do much, I feel ashamed even mentioning such a filthy, horrific thing to you.I really do.I needed a few showers, myself, to feel I got rid of the filth.No, I did not watch ” The Hills Have Thighs” on late night Cinemax.I have, before, but no that is not what I am talking about.No, I am talking about something perhaps a bit more dirty.I watched many hours of the Senate, our, umm, beloved senate ? They were working on something that is nearly two decades in the making, and I had to watch.I had to.
They voted on, and finally beat a filibuster, and beat that old fool John McCain, and passed the repeal on the abysmal “Don’t ask, don’t tell” laws that we have had for our military for nearly two decades.
Now, we can enjoy all the silliness that the right will have to offer, such as the chestnut that now poor straight male soldiers will have to shower with gay soldiers.Oh, the nightmare! Or, not.They seem to think the military had no gays in its services, and that now with this repeal, the military will be changing its colors from military greens to bright pinks.
Frankly, it is odd to me that the two major fights the LGBT community have fought for are serving in military, and marriage.Yeah, I am not a fan of both.Their dream is to get married, and possibly die fighting for their country.Well, more power to them, and they should have the right to suffer, just like anyone else who wishes to marry.
I was going to talk a bit about the other major bill, that failed; The Dream act.Maybe I should rejoice in the final victory for finally allowing gays in the military?Maybe.
I think I will, for now.
Then do not be upset when you are called a hate group.That sounds fairly simple to me.If you go around slandering, creating hate for a group, minority or not, then you are entering the realm of other outsider hate groups like the KKK or some other hate group.It is simple.
Yet they are! Awe, how awful, hate filled people are upset that they are being considered a hate group for hating!
