Elaine Donnelly, president of the openly pro-discrimination Center for Military Readiness, says the organization has set up a section on its site called “Confidentiality Contact,” where she’s inviting members of the armed forces to bitch about the upcoming death of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. From there, Donnelly will express those sentiments to lawmakers, in some magic fashion, like an email, which nobody looks at. And since the repeal of DADT does not include any prohibition on discriminating against gays, it is now and forever possible for anti-gay heterosexual troops set their web browsers to full-screen, or maybe even project their computer activity on the side of a building while sending Donnelly some screed about how scared they are to shower with fags. Meanwhile, gay troops must email their partners in code.
Again, it needs to be said. Just because DADT is dying doesn’t mean discrimination and the fight against open service will die along with it.
The problem is that they won’t let gay troops email their partners using any decent encryption algorithm because that would prevent the military from spying on its troops.
Here’s my encrypted credit card number, in case anyone wants to try to figure out what it is (just as an example of how hard it is to do):
