Don’t ask, just tell

It is time for the military to can the ridiculous rule that says gay men and women in service have to avoid admitting their sexual orientation.

That’s the opinion of 28 retired generals and admirals who are urging Congress to repeal the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” law that says gays can stay in uniform as long as they don’t talk about it.

Time to put this piece of discrimination out to pasture.

A New Push to Roll Back ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ – Twenty eight retired generals and admirals plan to release a letter on Friday urging Congress to repeal a law that allows gay men and lesbians to serve in the military but only if they keep their orientation secret. [Washington News]
