Checking in with the ABSOLUTELY ZERO Gay Military Problems Post-DADT Repeal
Not one complaint. Not one incident of harassment – sexual or otherwise, bullying, hazing, assault, creepy glances in the shower, refusal to share a bunk. Not one.
By any metric you choose to measure with, literally by any standard of judgment, there has not been on single problem in the United States Armed Forces relating to gay soldiers in the entire year of aftermath since President Obama repealed DADT.
The anti-gay religious leaders and politicians who warned otherwise were lying. Republicans who claimed there would be rapes, sexual harassment, damage to troop morale and a mass un-enlisting of heterosexual soldiers were lying. Because that’s all they have in this debate – lies.
Dan Savage is today calling upon the media to refuse to republish and re-air these lies all over again as we march closer to federal marriage equality and the repeal of DOMA.
On a final note, I know I’m beating a dead horse here, but ZERO.
