    Roz is ready for “a gay ol’ time.” (from The Flintstones theme)

    Say it loud, say it proud – since for so long you couldn’t.

    Mitt says hr would re-enstate Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Iwonder how that would work (besides poorly).

    Over 40 years ago, didn’t ask, didn’t need to, didn’t care.

    Actually I think Mel’s father has a legitimate gripe. I don’t think Roz has any more right to, really, brag about being gay than someone else has to proclaim to the world he/she is straight. Really, why should Roz expect those not personally involved to care? And wouldn’t most people think those who made it a point to assert their sexual orientation – no matter what that may be – is acting somewhat strangely? That’s the problem with activist of any cause: they seem to not be able to accept acceptance.

    Not talking about something is not the same as accepting it. Acceptance is when you are not fired, beaten, or killed if you mention having a same sex partner or slip and forget to switch adjectives when talking to a stranger. Being openly gay means being able to talk about your family in polite company, that’s all – it’s not a cry for attention, it’s just living your life. For the first time in her life Roz can be open about her orientation and not fear losing her career. She’s celebrating, not bragging.

    Why is Garry purposely resurrecting this controversial subject? No amount of arguing is going to change anybody’s mind on it. As far as I’m concerned, the subject is a private, personal matter, and not suitable for dinner conversation. Besides, it would seem to me a person comfortable with his or her sexuality wouldn’t feel the need to make it a subject of conversation. Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. I don’t ask because I don’t want to know. Please respect the fact that I tolerate homosexuality because I must, and not because I approve; and that will never change. If I appear to be bigotted, it’s no more so than the homosexuals who force their lifestyles on those who don’t approve; but then bigotry is defined by intolerance and the unwillingness to compromise. . But, then, the bigot, like the racist, is always the other fellow, isn’t he?

    I know for a while it’s going to be tempting to shout it from the rooftops, but to borrow a phrase from the Security Folks (AKA Professional Paranoids, or the keepers of the Confidential, Secret, Top-Secret, etc. files), just like the extra-marital affairs and other assorted sordid ‘dirty laundry’ we all saw from the corner of our eyes in the Crotch, I must avert “I still don’t have A Need To Know”.
    You GO, girl, but have the sense to not shove people’s noses in it, OK? Any more than you would the other.
    If the nose is Blue, even more so!

    Didn’t matter what service, if you worked for NSA, you knew who was gay and it didn’t matter all the way up the ranks as far as I could see as long as you did your job.

    I was talking about enlisted because of our higher than normal IQ’s :) Officers, well let’s not get into that.
