DADT Repeal

I want to be happy about this.

I am, in fact, quite happy that the law has been repealed. I just can't be jumping up and down because I'm afraid that the right wingers and the Republicans are going to find some way to fuck it all up again.

It's like being given something and knowing that someone is going to come and take it away again. So I can't let myself feel happy about it because when they come and take it away then it's going to hurt even more. I feel like we try to make progress and then some people just hold us back. Why?

It's the same mindset that didn't want blacks and whites serving together or women in the military. It's the same mindset that segregates people based on differences and teaches us to hate what's different.


  1. Hmmm, I don't think they will go back the other way again. I think the tide has turned on this issue so I'm not fearful of the repeal being repealed.

  2. You'd think, right? But I don't know. I just can't trust that they won't find something. *eyes them* Clearly I have issues with trust.

  3. "Clearly I have issues with trust."

    Don't worry. Your Big Sis will do her best to protect you. :)

    You know hiding in your pillow fort really seems inviting when considering some folks out there. :-S

  4. *finishes addition to pillow fort*

    You're welcome in here any time, Big Sis. I just made some more room. :) We have hot coco and s'mores...

    I also have nerf guns in case we need to defend the pillow fort!
