Senate approves defense bill sans anti-gay amendments

Of late, I have been kind of losing hope and getting disheartened and depressed from all the force with which the anti-gay organisations, politicians, personalities have been trying to kill all our dreams.

But tonight, just before retiring for the night, this piece of news, brought my faith back on right over wrong. Not only the anti-gay amendments weren’t included, Article 125 has been repealed too, which criminalized sodomy even among consensual adults, gay or straight.

If only these angry, hate filled people knew, that it doesn’t take much to make us happy. All we want is what every living human being wants. Its very basic, very simple, to a point where it ¬†almost seems trivial and unimportant. To be respected, accepted, included in the big picture, to be able to be a part of the human family, with the same rights and responsibilities.

I really felt hopeless, when even after repealing DADT, few politicians still tried everything in their power to delay it and if they could get their way, over turn it, and throw us back in the abyss  where we thought we had finally crawled out of.

But today, it looks like “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is finally going to rest in peace in the pages of history. I really wish, the next generation would never ask and we don’t have to tell them about this shameful law.

But I guess, DADT is gone so they will ask and we will tell.
