While America Fires Its Gay Soldiers, Australia Has Concerns About Their ‘Well-Being’


Just to keep you up to date on how antiquated America’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell law is, not only do other nations like Germany, Israel, Argentina, and the United Kingdom allow gays to serve their countries openly, but at least one is going the extra step to make them feel utterly at home. The Australian Defence Force is pushing forward a two-day conference focusing on the needs of sexual minorities serving in the military. Now that “equality” is, like, just a passe topic with gays there serving openly, the conference will focus on health, family, and well-being. Really, well-being! Can you imagine America’s armed forces caring about the well-being of its GLBT soldiers? Conservatives would just call that “babying.”
