“Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” repealed; a father and son talk

Sep 21st, 2011 | By | Category: Current Affairs

We talk a lot about the politics of outing people as gay, lesbian or bisexual. Some of us believe it’s always wrong. Others, that it’s only ok if the closeted person is being a hypocrite — that it’s ok to out an anti-gay politician as gay, but not a closeted person who fights the corner […]
