DADT gone, but unequal treatment of gays still here [Now, it starts]
CNN ^ | 09/20/2011 | Laurence Watts

Posted on 09/21/2011 3:01:12 PM PDT by fwdude

(CNN) -- In the very early hours of this morning, "don't ask, don't tell" ceased to be U.S. policy. As a result, today is the first day I can write about being the partner of a gay military serviceman without fear that he will lose his job. ...

The battle has only been half won. Gay servicemen or servicewomen can no longer be discharged simply for being gay, but they are still treated inequitably. Only by using their newly won free speech can they hope to reap the same benefits as their straight colleagues.

This travesty is only the very initial inception of what sodomites want to do to our military, our country. IMMEDIATELY after the "repeal" took effect, they began attacking every other aspect of DOMA that they want to destroy. This was their aim from the beginning.

Did anyone ever expect them to stop and say they were happy?

That was not the case with DADT, Watts, you idiot!

The Military did not want homosexuality to be the obvious issue its become today, Watts, you idiot!

That’s pretty much redundant. Muslim men have sexual issues instilled from childhood. A lot of it has to do with the inferior way they treat their women.

oh for crying out loud

These mentally sick folks should not even be serving and history has shown us they should not.

Making men share showers with two homosexuals, making a man share a sleeping bag while doing survival training, letting men dress as woman after work on base is down right WRONG.

If any General who does not have to share showers and bunks wiht homosexuals think the overturn of don’t ask was right then they should share bunks and showers with homosexuals.

The Navy guy is right today , PC is killing the military and it needs to stop.

FIRST THING FORM THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS TO OVERTURN THIS PATHETIC MOST STUPID SOCIAL ENGINEERING LAW.
The get rid of Govt health care and all the regulations this admin has imposed.

Just what I have been saying for a long time! They want to force "group think" on the American people! They have been doing it slowly, but surely by using little things here and there like: down with the bullying - if you call someone a sissy or faggot, then you are a bully; you should keep your opinions to yourself - you MIGHT hurt someone's feelings; changing words (this is my absolute favorite) - you can't say retard or deaf or gay or fag or PICK ANOTHER word as this is insensitive!

Hey BOZO, LIFE is insensitive! People are people and the only ones who give a dang about "your" sensitivity are "group thinking" idiots!

I hope they put every dang one of these mentally challenged (don't want to say retard), mental midgets on the front lines and use them as a speed bumps and cannon-fodder against the oncoming hordes of non-Muslim, yet Jihad-following, Koran-reading crazies!

These articles seldom, if ever, mention that DADT was introduced by Clinton and was heralded as a victory for gays--an end to so-called witchhunts.

If DADT had been the product of a Republican administration I would bet that the stories coming out today would lead with a sentence to the effect of "The Republican-sponsored DADT....."

3-5% of the population is running and ruining the country. It is amazing. It isn’t the tail wagging the dog it is the very tippy tip of the tail wagging the dog. In my lifetime bone smoking butt pirates went from being clinical, I mean DSM-IV clinical, to running the country.

Great points. DADT was once heralded as a wonderful thing. Now, it’s hell-inspired. And they forget you inspired it.

A Marine called into a local radio show and asked how to deal with seeing a couple guys from his squad in a lip lock at the local shopping center. If expresses disgust, will he be disciplined for not liking what he witnessed?

In Afghanistan, my partner worked and lived alongside Danish, French and British troops, to name just a few. With nearly every NATO country allowing gay men and women to serve openly in their militaries,

****************************

Well maybe the Danish, French and British homosexuals aren't quite as neurotic as American homosexuals. It is going to be a non-stop bitch fest now and in-your-face...I'm queer...you don't like me because I'm gay.

blah blah blah

Maybe the Hollywood lazies, lacking any creative work ethic, can get a reality show going--Queer Eye For The Sniper Guy! The military will prob'ly make a 'gay-pride ribbon' for all those who served in silence to pin on their chest. All this is going to turn into a giant circus during a chit storm. Lurch

My thoughts?

- They want us to act as though the abnormal is normal.

- The media is totally in the gay camp (positive articles/views only)

- The disorder will be kept hidden from civilians

You are exactly correct. I even signed up on CNN to post to the original article and my comment was "held for review." I don't expect to ever see it posted.

All you ever hear anymore on the Lamestream Media is "marriage equality" and newspeak garbage like that.

The media sees this as a great civil rights issue. If you see it from that perspective, it’s no wonder that you’d want to shut down all dissent. Of course, they’re wrong, but that’s how they see it.

Department Reminds Troops of Member-designated Benefits

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28, 2011 – In their ongoing review of military benefits in connection with the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Defense Department officials have now identified a total of 14 benefits where members may designate beneficiaries of their choosing, regardless of sexual orientation.
“We listed eight member-designated benefits in our original Quick Reference Guide, released Sept. 20. We’ve now validated an additional six,” said Defense Department spokeswoman Eileen Lainez. “While these are not ‘new,’ now that we’ve confirmed these additional benefits, we’re updating the Quick Reference Guide to ensure all are aware of their beneficiary options.”
The 14 benefits identified for members to designate whomever they wish as beneficiaries are:

— Service Members Group Life Insurance beneficiary;
— Post Vietnam-era Veterans Assistance Program beneficiary;
— All-volunteer Force Educational Assistance Program – Active Duty Death Benefit beneficiary;
— Death Gratuity beneficiary;
— Final Settlement of Accounts;
— Wounded Warrior Designated Caregiver;
— Thrift Savings Plan beneficiary;
— Survivor Benefit for retirees;
— Casualty Notification;
— Escorts for Dependents of Deceased or Missing;
— Designation of Persons Having Interest in Status of a Missing Member;
— Veterans’ Group Life Insurance beneficiary;
— Person Eligible to Receive Effects of Deceased Persons; and
— Travel and Transportation Allowance: attendance at Yellow Ribbon
Reintegration events.

Eligibility for a number of other benefits is restricted by applicable statutes, including the Defense of Marriage Act.

Finally, in connection with the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Lainez said, “the Defense Department is engaged in a careful and deliberate review of the possibility of revising the eligibility for additional benefits, if legally permitted.” Service members are encouraged to contact their personnel offices for more information.
