Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is history as of today. Opponents of the change to a more just military aren’t taking the loss well. From the New York Times:
The other side will be heard, too: Elaine Donnelly, a longtime opponent of allowing gay men and lesbians to serve openly in the armed forces, has already said that “as of Tuesday the commander in chief will own the San Francisco military he has created.”
With arguments like that, I can’t see how they lost. Because San Francisco is pretty gay, you see. And now the military will be more gay, too. Just like San Francisco. The point just makes itself. San Fransisco = gay = the military = San Francisco. It chills the soul.
Perhaps it is churlish to mock opponents of repeal today in their hour of defeat, just because they really think it’s important that people like me remain as second-class as possible. Elaine, if you’re reading, I’d like to offer you a conciliatory invitation to come to my house. I’ll do your hair while we watch “Mommy Dearest” and work on our drag routines. Just like they’ll be doing in the Marines from now on, what with it being so gay and all.
