I am a 20 year old bisexual female from the state of Indiana in the United States. I receive newletters from the Human Rights Campaign and was recently informed of a bill introduced to the U.S. Congress that would repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy currently enforced among homosexuals in the United States Military. Basically, any known homosexual will be prevented from joining the military or discharged from the military simply because they are gay. This new bill, called the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, would do away with "don't ask, don't tell" and institute complete tolerance of homosexuals in the military.

I wrote to my state representative, voicing my opinion on the bill, and asking him to support it. My request was denied. Apparently, my congressman believes that "homosexual activity is prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the armed services. For that reason, [he] oppose[s] any efforts that would allow known homosexuals to enter into or continue service in the military."

Now, I'm not a naive person, and I did not expect miracles. But I do believe that this world is gradually changing. As homosexual, bisexual, and transgender people are being more open about their sexuality, we are starting to be accepted for who and what we are. Change will not happen in a day... it may not even happen in a decade.

However, we need to let our voices be heard now, so that we can start changing the future one person at a time. For this reason, I'm asking you, whoever you are, wherever you're from, and whatever your sexuality is, to write to the United States Congress in support of this bill. It may not be passed and made into law, but at least we will let the U.S. government know that gay, bi, and transgender people everywhere are willing to stand up for their rights.

If you've gotten this far, thank you for reading, and please show your support for all homosexuals in the military by writing a letter today.

Off topic, but hey, it's funny. [Jun. 30th, 2004|10:11 am]

Try this, before someone forces Google to fix it...read it all...carefully
1) Go to www.Google.com
2) Type in: weapons of mass destruction (DON'T hit enter yet!!!!)
3) Hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button NOT the "Google search"
4) Don't panic! Read the ENTIRE "error message" carefully - the whole thing.

Someone at Google really has a sense of humor.....

Just thought that it should be shared.

DHS GSA or the Graham and Paddy Show... [Feb. 4th, 2004|05:15 pm]

Okay folks, WTF?!?!?
The dinosaur, while incredibly cute, ONLY LIKES MEN?
Are we not supporting our dinosaur's ability to be lesbian, bi, pansexual, or questioning?
We have foisted a sexual identity on what was before a carefree little dinosaur.
It still looks cute when it runs though.
Right then, carry on.
I wanted a lesbian dinosaur though.
Male chauvinists, what can you do?

Okay, first little post thingy.

For all of you LJ whores who are more likely to check your Friends page than your e-mail, this is for you.

I'll cross-post everything from the GSA YahooGroup onto here.
