IF I WAS GAY I WOULD WANT TO BE FREE TO SAY SO

DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL – A POLICY THAT DEFINES U.S. HOMOPHOBIA, HYPOCRISY

Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Do you know what that refers to in our current day vernacular? It is a demand to keep part of who or what or how you are - a secret. And if you don’t keep a secret about your truth, you will lose your job. In the United States of America military. I happened by accident to hear the script of a television show, Boston Legal, last night while I was working around the house. I had to stop and watch and listen. It grabbed my attention because of the writing. The story line that grabbed my attention was about a soldier who wanted to sue the government due to the Don’t Ask Don’t’ Tell requirement about his homosexuality.

It was well-done.

We have homosexuals dying and getting wounded for this country in Iraq and they come home to a country that denies them the freedoms that they have either died for or given their healthy bodies for. We will use them. But we won’t support those troops.

We will only support a gay soldier if he lives in our denial.

THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF LARRY

And Larry Craig’s interview with Matt Lauer gave us an example of someone who chooses to be forced to be something other than his natural self. But the part that is wrong is that his secret life and his legislative votes are at odds with one another. His legislative voting record forces homosexuals who live with the courage to not have a secret life, but a life in truth - to have restricted rights as human beings.
