  1. Does that mean that the Christian oppposition mouthing off in the Senate such as Senator John McCain (Arizona) must have been wrong, bigots? Em, yes I think it must.

    The bigots are wrong, what a surprise.

    1. Well they can’t miss out on any opportunity to scaremonger now can they? After all scaremongering is what they do best.

  3. This has been out for a week now Pink !!!

    Of course !!! Most civlised contries have no such stupid laws.Even my ultra-homophobic country allows gays to serve openly

  4. Surprise, surprise.
    I remember one top brass admitting that opening all service roles to women had worried him much more because having lots of young horny straight people jumbled up together with the opposite sex was potentially much more explosive. The point is obvious to all but irrational homophobes. And, yes, I believe that both sexes should have the right to serve at every level.

  5. Gosh they really catch on fast in America.

  6. And in other news, the sky is blue.
    Who would have thought.

      In this country, the sky is usually grey.

      1. Haha, tell me about it.

    Don’t say we didn’t tell you so.

  8. They are wrong. Its had a positive effect. People can be who they are now without fear.

  9. They may be a late entry for this. But lets give credit where credit is due. The US military made the transition under it’s own power.
    The UK armed forces would have continued with the descrimination were it not for intervention from the European Court in the late 90s.

    1. and the group Rank Outsiders.

    Definitely something I should expect from US politicians. Unlike the anti-gay Republicans!
