In his speech to the Human Rights Campaign, President Obama has promised to “[E]nd ’don’t ask-don’t tell.’” It’s good that he wants to end it. But he has said this before and has not followed through. It’s been enough talk now; it is time to act. If words were money, then everybody would be rich, but since words aren’t money, actions are needed.
As I have covered here before, DADT needs to be repealed because the policy it hinders the US military. As a matter of fact, I’ll make a statement here: if you support dismissing well-qualified and needed LGBT people (like interpreters) just for being an LGBT person, then you don’t support the troops. It’s that simple.
