I have mixed emotions as to the end of DADT. Obviously, I think it was an onerous implementation of hate and discrimination on a national basis and needed to end for common decency reasons. However, as with most implementations of pro-LGB legislation, the T is left holding the bag. This morning I began a lengthy post that centers, in part, around a friend of mine and the prejudices faced by T-women versus women in general. That will be posted later today or early tomorrow.
Then today, I received a link in my email. You know that I do not like linking to other sites. Normally I consider it lazy and I know that you don't read MY blog to see what other people are thinking. However, this is different. As a former Marine, I appreciate this more than most. As I don't know the people involved I must let them tell the story. So, as we celebrate the end of DADT, let us remember that there are still many in harm's way who still can't tell.
