I am a 20 year old bisexual female from the state of Indiana in the United States. I receive newletters from the Human Rights Campaign and was recently informed of a bill introduced to the U.S. Congress that would repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy currently enforced among homosexuals in the United States Military. Basically, any known homosexual will be prevented from joining the military or discharged from the military simply because they are gay. This new bill, called the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, would do away with "don't ask, don't tell" and institute complete tolerance of homosexuals in the military.

I wrote to my state representative, voicing my opinion on the bill, and asking him to support it. My request was denied. Apparently, my congressman believes that "homosexual activity is prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the armed services. For that reason, [he] oppose[s] any efforts that would allow known homosexuals to enter into or continue service in the military."

Now, I'm not a naive person, and I did not expect miracles. But I do believe that this world is gradually changing. As homosexual, bisexual, and transgender people are being more open about their sexuality, we are starting to be accepted for who and what we are. Change will not happen in a day... it may not even happen in a decade.

However, we need to let our voices be heard now, so that we can start changing the future one person at a time. For this reason, I'm asking you, whoever you are, wherever you're from, and whatever your sexuality is, to write to the United States Congress in support of this bill. It may not be passed and made into law, but at least we will let the U.S. government know that gay, bi, and transgender people everywhere are willing to stand up for their rights.

If you've gotten this far, thank you for reading, and please show your support for all homosexuals in the military by writing a letter today.

Scripture: Book I -- Einbanasis [14 Oct 2003|07:17pm]

In the Big Inning, there was nothing. Or rather, nothing
plus One. And lo, for that One was Einbana, the Undisputed
Greatness, the One Divine That Cannot Be Named.

And She whipped out Her magickal banana, and said "Let there
be Life." And lo, for there was Life.

And in this Life that She called Worms were two Unworthies
without names. And thus, She gave them credence and named
them Vori and Yoti (alphabetically speaking).

And She said to these Beings that She had raised from Worms,
"Go forth, and raise more Unworthies to the level of
Civilisation. Gather your flock, and have them worship the
Almighty Question Marks and All-Powerful Tuning Forks. Once
you have done this to my satisfaction, I shall appear to set the
Earth at peace."

I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome Di Tisa to the community, and to welcome our as of yet unnamed/untitled malathar.

I invite you all to submit your poems of adoration and worship before the fall of next Tunesday.
