I'm rather late posting anything about this, but I feel like talking. My lack of an earlier posting pretty much boils down my reaction to it being repealed. Good for them, but it does nothing for me. Don't get me wrong, I think someone who's gay should be able to openly be so in the military without fear of being discharged. However, what gets to me the most is how it suddenly came out of nowhere and eclipsed ENDA. DADT effects a very specific group of people, the military. Anyone that's not in the military is pretty much unaffected by it. Personally I feel that the good of everyone in the country should come first. I'm happy for the military, but meanwhile I'm still jobless. The Republicans have congress again and are about to fuck things up even worse than they already were, and ENDA is virtually dead again. I've seen so much bullshit out there from people who claim that us trans people are the reason for ENDA's failure to get anywhere yet. I'd like to point out to anyone who thinks that the many times it came up for vote and never passed before gender identity was even considered. My official like statement regarding DADT's repeal? Congrats to the military for their win, for the rest of us I say rest in peace ENDA, I hope to see you again one day.
