Don't Ask, Don't Tell has been repealed
Here in the States, Don't Ask, Don't Tell has finally been repealed after 17 years. Homosexuals are now allowed to serve openly in the armed forces.
Many say this is a landmark for the LGBT community, a step towards full equality.
Some, however, say that DADT, like marriage rights, should not be at the top of the LGBT agenda, and that our country needs to make sure kids aren't killing themselves because of bullying or being kicked out of the house before our country allows them to serve, and possibly die, for our country.
And there are some who feel homosexuals in the army threaten the "true men" and will distract our troops.
What are your thoughts? =)

Re: Don't Ask, Don't Tell has been repealed
Excellent, excellent news.

Re priorities, it's not one or the other. Campaigners can work for equality on different levels at once, and intuitively I feel that's more useful than concentrating on just one area at a time.
