What’s Your Personal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”?
We were thrilled beyond words to learn that the Senate voted to repeal the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which prevented gays from openly serving in the military. The Senate voted in favor of the repeal 65 to 31, and now it will go before President Obama to be signed into law. Said Obama, “Making this change will only underscore the professionalism of our troops as the best led and best trained fighting force the world has ever known. It is time to allow gay and lesbian Americans to serve their country openly. No longer will many thousands more be asked to live a lie in order to serve the country they love.”
And now, we can take the idea of “don’t ask, don’t tell” a little less seriously. After all, there are plenty of things we think actually deserve being put into this category. Liiiike telling us about how wasted you got last night. Or the terrible sex you had with somebody else’s boyfriend. And especially talking about the explosive diarrhea you had this morning after breakfast. So, tell us: what’s on your personal “don’t ask, don’t tell” list?
