A gay officer reports on the "training" in DADT repeal.


Here’s a nice little commentary from Time Magazine, “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell: A Gay Officer Witnesses It’s End”, by Officer X, link here.  Andrew Sullivan noted this article in his “Daily Beast” and “The Dish” blog for the Atlantic, here. The “training” in the repeal is a sham, as the officer notes, and certainly sounds condescending. Imagine, as the officer relates, even having to listen to it if you’re gay.

In the meantime, SLDN is reporting that the Senate may be more hospitable to orderly progress in certification of the repeal than the House was recently.

Update: May 26

The Washington Blade reported today that the House passed the bill reported earlier that complicates the certification requirement for the end of "don't ask don't tell".
