Did social media bring about the end of DADT? Will it facilitate ENDA?

Randi Zuckerberg (sister of Mark Zuckerberg and CEO of Zuckerberg Media (link ) , pretty much accounts for why “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” has had been doomed a few years ago, in her Time essay, “Post more baby photos: It’s time to stop pretending we can separate our personal life from our work life”, link here. You have to share now it seems.  There is no more private life?  Maybe there were good unintended consequences. 
It’s isn’t hard to imagine how the comments apply to the Boy Scouts issue, or to. In a broader sense, ENDA. And there’s another story here. Harry Reid is setting up a Senate vote on ENDA before Thanksgiving, Washington Blade story here.

That reminds me of the situation in Russia.  Is it illegal there to mention homosexuality on the Internet because presumably a minor could find it, and, in Putin’s way of thinking, decide not to have children?
