Just a quick note about the repeal of DADT:
This gay male ain’t impressed. Like everything Obama does the goodwill gets lost in the detail.
I am not holding my breath for better treatment for gays in the military.
Of course DADT was absurd but repealing it does nothing when you get to thinking about the real and immediate problem for gay men and women in the USA: The Christian Right hates us (along with the devout Muslim and the Orthodox Jew) and would like us to self destruct in a cloud of holy vapor.
With the advent of fascist Palin and her ilk…who intellectuals love to laugh at as the German intellectuals did at Hitler…laws like this can be very easily repealed. For Goodness sake, they are already discussing separate dorms for gays!
Now, let’s start talking about the real issue: legal parity, matrimonial parity and stop gawping over the death of a ridiculous law that affected a tiny number of men and women compared to DOMA which affects us all.
There’s something else, something I always forget to write:
The gays and the lesbians ain’t going anywhere.
We ain’t asking and you ain’t telling.
You murderous, repellent christian/muslim/jewish folks can kill every black man, every white man, every asian, every jew, every muslim, every christian, every aboriginal…but as long as there are humans on the earth we will be there too.
Get used to it! Get fucking used to it!
We are your children and your grand children. You can hunt us down and kill every one of us but tomorrow another gay will be born.
It is God’s Will you crazy Christian/Muslim/Jewish Cunts..it’s God’s fucking will.
As for the gays…
Parity, unity and now.
Get off your fat, lazy, complacent asses gay America and start breaking windows until you achieve equality. Stop relying on bloated lawyers to fight unwinnable cases. Do SOMETHING!!! Do it NOW!!!
I know you won’t. There’s a boy you’ve seen on Manhunt..a martini waiting for you at the bar…weights to lift at the gym.
I live in the USA. I am appalled by the lack of political initiative that gay people take or are engaged in.
Frankly this DADT repeal is small cheese. American gay and lesbian equality is leagues behind the rest of the developed world because they refuse to engage in direct action. They refuse to seen to have an opinion…refuse to fight in any meaningful way and, just as Obama attempted to engage with the Christian right with his ill fated consensus politics..reaching out to his adversary, the gays have their agenda prescribed by their homophobic enemies rather than doing what government hates most: insurrection.
Governments hate their own people on the street demanding to be heard.
Gay men especially still live in a great deal of fear.
Look at the way radical British gay human rights activist Peter Tatchell fought hard and visibly for all to see, worked in tandem with Stonewall lobby type groups and allowed the oppressed a voice in the streets.
In America we are regularly stoned, beaten, insulted and killed. It is time to fight back, it is time to be heard and a smidgeon of compassion is simply not good enough.
