Lady Gaga, Neil Patrick Harris take to Twitter to celebrate DADT repeal vote

Lady-gaga-dadt Given her use of Twitter to decry the Pentagon's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, Lady Gaga, of course, would lead the way on the social media platform to celebrate the Senate's repeal vote.

"Can't hold back the tears [and] pride. We did it! Our voice was heard...today the Senate REPEALED DADT. A triumph for equality after 17 YEARS," she tweeted, followed by a photo of herself holding a piece of paper reading "Full Equality."

Plenty of other celebs joined in celebrating the repeal, which removes the policy requiring LGBT military officers to remain silent about their identities to serve.

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell REPEALED! So proud of Congress for making the right decision. Now all soldiers can serve with integrity. A great day," Neil Patrick Harris wrote.

Ellen DeGeneres thanked senators for bringing the country "one step closer towards full eqaulity," while Katy Perry retweeted singer Pink, who gave a shout-out to all troops and remarked, "there's hope after all."

First............( I always wanted to do that )

She should be crying when they get rid of nuclear arms
She should be crying when there is world peace
She should be crying when there is an end to world hunger
She should be crying when there is an end to poverty

DADT is a joke the military should make its own policies not the government.

What next rubber bullets because where killing people?
Getting rid of military boots because animals were killed when they made them?

Gays in the military.

Lawyers and politician and their clients or constituents are keenly aware that the best way to have major changes in a society is to place any individual or group in the special category of "A victim" if you’re going to change any time-honored tradition in The United States of America!!!
The gay agenda has a progression of thoughts: First there is the "Don't ask, don't tell" that introduces the gay verbiage that implies undeserved "Shame" experienced by the gays; then the gays progress to the "Do ask, and do tell", which projects a more accepting view of the gay lifestyle; then they promote their interpersonal romantic gay alternative relationships as just as natural, normal, productive and healthy as the heterosexual lifestyle; and finally the gay community will demand that a law be passed making homosexual marriages legal.
One person compared the homosexual lifestyle as like being left-handed in a society of where 92% of the population is right-handed. However, two individuals, one writing with their left hand and the other person using their right hand both accomplish the same task of equally good penmanship. On the other hand, gays and lesbians can't produce or have a family. There are gays and lesbians Christian who would do a better job of raising children over some traditional male / female couples who are dysfunctional, spiritually or emotionally.
But males bonding with females will always be a more preferred and acceptable lifestyle for the majority because they produce children and grandchildren etc (a family unit)!
The naked truth is that all humans have relational problems, regardless of their sexual orientation; simply because we are all self-centered, ego-centric and put our self interest above all others. The point I am trying to make is that so many straight pious individuals (especially Christians) will condemn or make-fun-of homosexuals and their lifestyle; and completely ignore the fact that straight people also struggle with life, and straight people also offend God and others in what they think, do and say.
When homosexuals can't get total or unconditional acceptance or approval of their gay and lesbian lifestyle or marriage from their heterosexual family members, friends, co-workers, school mates or teachers, religious leaders, or neighbors; then this lawsuit against the U.S. Military opens a door to promote and encourage all Americans to accept the homosexual lifestyle as legal and have equal status of male to female lifestyle and marriage.
Sexual orientation is a non-work related issue: and the military should never give deference to race, religion or sexual orientation!
My hope and prayer is that The Government of the U.S.A. will continue to ONLY require that a person’s mental and physical abilities be up for consideration in order to determine whether a person is qualified to join any branch of the U.S military!!! This is a desperate attempt to accomplish homosexual’s future goal of sanctioned gay and lesbian marriages in all 50 states of the U.S.

Great now she can also ask that women are held to she same standards as men in the military, and cry when 75% can't make it. Why does she care is she planning on joining? The military didn't care it was Don't ask don't care. So don't be in our faces with it and we won't care what you do in your free time.

One step at a time. And I know some rather salty GAY DevilDogs. Your rubber bullets argument is refuted.
Arthur Trafford,
Nothing wrong with letting gays get married. Maybe you should put your tinfoil hat back on.
She? I have some bad news for you. (You may be gay.)

Goverment passed it, so government repeals it. It's that simple, aurelius.

Arthur, gays already serve in the military. This is about not getting booted out just because it becomes known to hire administration or some jerk who has a problem with it.
