Vra nie, vertel nie

Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Vandag is die eerste amptelike dag van die nuwe Amerikaanse militêre beleid sonder "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". My pa was in die weermag en het 'n paar gay soldate geken. Dit was nie 'n groot kwessie nie. Soos hulle sê, "you don't have to be straight to shoot straight." Straf onprofesionele gedrag, nie sexualiteit nie. Vir al die soldate daar buite, straight of gay, dankie vir jou diens aan ons land!

Hier is 'n vid van 'n Amerikaanse soldaat wat aan sy pa uitkom.
Are you surprised?

Today is the first official day of the new US Military policy without "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." My father was in the army and knew a few gay soldiers. It wasn't a big deal. As they say, "you don't have to be straight, to shoot straight." Punish unprofessional conduct, not sexuality. For all the soldiers out there, straight or gay, thank you for your service to our country!

Here is a video from an American soldier coming out to his father.

Excellent video which brought back memories of when I came out as a soldier while it was still illegal - back in the British Army in 1982. I actually wrote a book on the subject. 'All the Queen's Men' (GMP. London, 1999). I think it is currently out of print. Great site with some interesting recipes.
