There would be no struggle if the frustrated and unhappy minded their own business (for a change) and stopped looking for scapegoats..

Bravo; exactly. This thought occurs to me so often that it has become unremarkable and commonplace. The "controversy" is falsely created by individuals who don't have the facts and who manufacture issues out of whole cloth.

This has probably been going on forever.

One is a democrat, one is a republican. How will they ever get along?? LOL, I know all about that, and my husband and I don't get heavy into politics discussions either. Even though I'm always right.

This story reflects what I've always hoped would one day be reality - that our lives would not be so much different and that we would all have the same opportunities to take our lives in the direction we wanted.

Unlike my generation, maybe today's younger gay persons will be able to pursue their dreams without giving up on some of the ideals that they were raised to believe. If that's what they want of course (may not be for everyone).

Sure is a good feeling!

Nice story but how can any self-respecting gay person vote Republican?

Actually, though I don't agree with his choices, I do think this proves that gay people are NOT cut from cookie cutters and is more realistic in the modern world.

Congratulations to both of them! I never thought I would see stories like this in major newspapers. The whole DADT thing fell faster than any changes yet. I think that the military was already well aware of its gay members long before this happened for them to cave so quickly.

I'm not sure how any self-respecting person can vote for today's Republican. They drove my husband and me right out of the party.

That is what I meant. I could understand a libertarian type Republican like Goldwater having appeal to some parts of the gay community, but not these Fundie asslickers.

I don't really think it's fair to blame the Tea Party. We left sometime after the Moral Majority and well before the Tea Party Express.

I think the Moral Majority set up the mindset that it's okay to believe whatever makes you feel good: Anyone who claims to follow the Bible literally can convince themselves of anything. Hence the Party was ripe for takeover by people who just needed to believe in something--whether it was creationism, unfettered capitalism, the myth of the 1950's, trutherism, or bitherism. They just need to believe in something, so they can stop thinking. Because that really hurts in today's world.

I think that scene from "The Newsroom" doesn't "blame the Tea Party". It accurately asserted that it, like so many ad hoc public movements, was co-opted by those who trade upon the ignorance of others.
