Malcolm X asked his brothers and sisters to fight for their rights. He reminded us that begging for ones rights doesn't work. We must demand our rights; be willing to die for our rights. He stated, "The price of freedom is death."
Our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters have bled and died for the rights of straight people in every war since the beginning of time. And we are still second class citizens. So I wonder what would happen if every gay or lesbian soldier, sailor, marine, airman, or reservist came out. What kind of hole would that leave in our military?
Maybe the way to get DADT repealed is to come out en mass!
