DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

May 8th, 2009 | 1 comment | Posted by Diana

The Army National Guard dismissed Knights Out founder Dan Choi this week–a not-so-gentle reminder that the archaic, pussy-footed, bullshit policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the U.S. military is still alive and kicking. And still bullshit.


Note to Obama and Congress: We’re asking and telling you to get a move on–repeal this policy now.

AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! Dan Choi

March 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Name: 1st Lieutenant Dan Choi

Occupation: National Guardsman with the 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry, based in Manhattan

Known for: Graduating from West Point with degrees in Arabic Language and Environmental Engineering, serving an extended tour of combat in Baghdad during the Iraq War, and founding Knights Out–an advocacy and education organization of soldiers that strives for the best possible leadership in the military, regardless of sexual orientation. Choi, joined by the other members of Knights out, are coming out publicly to defy the disingenuous policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Choi told the Navy Times, “I’m very comfortable with all the repercussions right now. To me, it’s about doing the right thing, not about trying to fit into the process that gets you the rank or prevents you from getting a discharge. If that’s the repercussion, I’m ready to take it. I think it’s more important that I let everybody know that … it is a wrong policy.” (For more regarding KO, See Choi’s interview with Rachel Maddow above)

We almost wish we were cadets so that we could join Knights Out, a surefire way to be associated with a military man boasting actual balls of steel.

Congratulasians to the Affianced!

May 19th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

The happy daysians–resulting from last week’s California Supreme Court ruling that cleared the way for gay marriage–just keep on coming! George Takei announced on his blog over the weekend that he now plans to marry his partner of over two decades, Brad Altman–and even though we hate weddings we can’t help but get kinda weepy and super-sentimental about it.

Congratulasians, Takei and Altman! Can we please be invited to the wedding? We are great gift givers and willing to dance until the band loads out.
