Know Your LGBT History - The end of DADT

In honor of our fighting men and women (especially our gay troops), I present to you the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell on December 2010:

Past Know Your LGBT History posts:

'NOM hosting speaker who claimed gays 'are worthy of death'' and other Friday midday news briefs

'Why Is NOM Still Hosting A Speaker Who Claims Gay People Are “Worthy Of Death?” - Even if he meant it in terms of a Biblical theology, even implying that gays are worthy of death is just wrong. 

Ten Right Wingers Freak Out Over Boy Scouts Policy Change - They seem to always freak out over something or another.

LGBT Job Discrimination Bill Won’t See Action Until July, Senator Says - Not a problem. It gives us more time to prepare because you know the religious right will push the "bathroom bill" talking point.  

Fox News Devotes Zero Seconds To Covering Brutal Anti-Gay Hate Crime - That's Fox News for you. They push all sorts of anti-gay nonsense but won't touch this.

Boy Scout decision elicits extreme emotion from both sides of the debate

Reactions to the decision by the Boy Scouts to lift the ban on gay youth but uphold it when it comes to Scout leaders is getting plenty of reaction. First from the Associated Press comes this emotional video:

Meanwhile, the rabid wolves at the conservative Free Republic aren't exactly in a celebratory mood. The following are just a few of the comments:

They can go to hell. But they want to take the kids with them.

The end of scouting. When will the sodomy merit badge be coming?

Great, the scouts are now the Village People. :(

The homo-nazi’s have won. But they will really celebrate all the more as chapter after chapter close up and the entire organization implodes.

Unbelievable..let the molestation begin..if I had a young boy I sure as hell would never put him in Scouts..mind as well put a target on his back and say “Molest me”

and what happens after there are endless reports of gay boy scouts hitting on other scouts? Sexual assault? The number of parents suing the BSA will be through the roof. No child should be subject to this type of filth.
