DADT repealed

In a historic 65-31 votes at the Senate, the 17 years old DADT has been repealed.

The bigots fought as much as they could to stop it. They lied, talked rubbish, lost track and started all over again. Their hammering was relentless. Their hammering just forged us into being stronger and more determined.

Senator John McCain made his plea and talked about limbless marines. I have still no idea how that was relevant to the repeal of DADT. He mumbled and grumbled and went on and on. But the end result is here for all to see.

Senator Reid, a personal THANK YOU for all that you have done, and to all the other Senators who voted ‘AYE’ today.

I was overwhelmed with joy. I cried. I am not even an american. I don’t live in america.

But those LGBT men and women in uniform, they are one of us. Thats why it was a personal victory. A victory that was long over due.

When I started watching live streaming of the senate voting today, I had no idea I would be so emotional. Looks like we gays have more compassion than our straight counterparts.

Now starts an era of ASK and TELL and be proud for what you are.

And a personal THANK YOU is in order for President Barack Obama for seeing this through.

America you just reclaimed a part of your former glory. Well done.

Merry Christmas everyone and a VERY HAPPY and GAY NEW YEAR.
