Queerty is better as a member
Feast your eyes on this historic document, ladies gents and everyone outside and in between—the Army’s official letter announcing the end of DADT. Look like we’ll be viewing great historic bits like this all week! Read it and weep, haters.
Here’s my query on this subject.
1. The Army is made up of good, patriotic Americans who follow orders.
2. Good upstanding citizens look up to and admire the Armed forces and those that serve in them.
Will the Army now not giving a shit about whom you sleep with have any effect on the broader culture at large? Is it as goes the armed forces, so goes the nation?
Now with any luck, DADT will become STFU about it. Nobody cares.
So glad it’s done with. And it better not EVER return.
This isn’t quite finished.
There are still several court cases in progress. Soldiers who were thrown out, have not been made whole. They want back-pay, benefits, and retirement or reenlistment.
If a civilian corporation fired people for “being” a minority, they would be entitled to back-pay, benefits, and retirement, and other damages.
