Pentagon still bans LGBT-advocacy websites from its computers
SLDN is reporting an AmericaBlog story that it and Towleroad are banned on Pentagon computers for being “LGBT”, whereas conservative political sites are allowed. The AmericaBlog story is (web url) here. SLDN tweeted the story today.
The censorship should have gone away with the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell”. It apparently hasn’t.
Furthermore, the Air Force specifically bans some sites for “political advocacy”.
I wonder if this blog, or if my “doaskdotell.com” is banned on Pentagon computers. If someone knows, please comment. I do know that my sites get traffic from Saudi Arabia but not from China.
The DOD, at least on Internet policy, seems about on the same level as China.
