Homophobic Tweet

I didn’t realize someone could have so many different facts wrong in just 140 characters.

Which of us are asking for special rights?
Is it asking for a special right to not be investigated for who we might love when heterosexual soldiers do not have to endure the same treatment?
Is it asking for special a special right to simply be able to stand up and be honest about who we are when we are asked, if we are asked?
Is it asking for a special right to not have to constantly worry about whether or not we’ve accidentally used the wrong pronoun?

I don’t know which troops “PortraitsPlus” are listening to but they aren’t the ones that fight for the United States Military. Less than a quarter of the troops that were given the survey even cared enough about working along side LGBT soldiers to bother filling it out. Of those, only a small percent were against personal freedom enough to say that DADT should not be repealed.

The overwhelming majority of those surveyed said that they were neutral to the questions posed.

What more evidence does one need here to realize that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is a law written by bigots for bigots?
This is America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Stand up people and lets get this fixed!
‘Til next time,
I’m out!
