Before we get all "Woo Hoo!! Ellen Can Marry Portia"...

A few states recognizing gay marriages says something good about the state of LGBT rights, certainly.

This, however, says something very very bad. You cannot read the opinion and not feel sick about how gays are treated in this country. Or maybe you can and you're a douchebag.

I think it's shameful.

6/8/9 was a very dark day for gay rights.

Count me as a proud douchebag. I really don't see a problem with "don't ask, don't tell".

We will count you as King Douchebag.

I'm sorry, Grace. Was this totally out of line for me? I feel like a violation of human rights not being recognized warrants some awknowledgement of their low-lifeness.

Feel free to delete this comment, Grace.

NO, VCU Girl. You are 100% right. You are allowed to say whatever you want on this blog. That's not true for everyone. But it's true for you. :-)

I saw this too. Balls. When I more fully digest this, I will be writing a better commentary than that.

Sincere question, Grace & others . . . 'while don't ask, don't tell' is obviously insufficient, do you think that it (at the time) was better than nothing, or at least, certainly better than the policy at the time? Just curious how you see it - that said, obviously the cited decision is wrong - just like 'don't ask, don't tell' was inadequate at the time, and has way outlived any (if any) usefulness it had.
