Funny headlines aside, we all know that, in reality, not one goddamned thing will change in the military based on the recall of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. It’s a ridiculous non-story, and I can’t believe the extent to which the whole thing has been in the news. Hopefully, now that it’s done, what’s left of our nation’s journalists can turn their attention to the Wikileaks documents and start reporting on things that matter a hell of a lot more than who our soldiers shower with.
[note: I didn’t mean to suggest that the repeal didn’t matter. It’s a big deal. I just can’t believe the extent to which we as a nation discussed the possible ramifications of allowing gay men do our killing as opposed to straight men.]
