For a different perspective on the repeal of DADT, young trans activist Danielle Askini writes that she’s sad about it:
The last bastion that forced SOME poor queer youth to avoid the military has been pealed away; we too can now be exploited and brain washed by the American military machine. The fact that queers have fought so hard to be part of such an evil institution is beyond me. I feel no joy. Only sorrow for the queers who will die needlessly on the American killing fields for Capitalist profits.
…which is an opinion I share, to some degree, even if I’m also pleased to see the repeal happen.
That said, crossdressing & trans identities are still on the list of mental health disorders for the military, so if you want to avoid a draft that might come along, there you go.
