Pentagon Will Certify DADT Repeal Tomorrow, But DOMA Will Continue Screwing Over Gay Soldiers Indefinitely

The Pentagon will announce tomorrow that the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta have certified their readiness to begin the 60-day repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Then after 60 days, DADT should be finally dead. That’s great news! Sadly, the Defense of Marriage act will continue to ensure that servicemembers’ partners will gain absolutely nothing from their spouse’ military benefits… “Your spouse can die for us, but hands off our money, fags!”

Oh, America! Land of the brave, home of back-asswards contradictions!
