The Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy has finally been eliminated. I think this is a major victory for homosexuals and for civil rights. I do not know what it is like to have to hide my true self, but I can imagine it is a difficult thing to do. I think it is wrong discriminate based on sexuality, gender, religion, race, or culture. This policy was unconstitutional to begin with and it is good that it is finally gone.
I believe that as a nation we must work towards upholding the concept of equality. It’s not just moral or fair, it is also demanded by the Constitution. I believe that most of our founders intended the statement, “All men are created equal,” to mean that all HUMANS are created equal. It may be an ideal, but I do think it is achievable. We should not allow the government to have discriminatory policies.
