Queer leaders (i.e. not the likes of HRC) have been calling out the Obama administration’s homophobic double-talk, and this time the honor goes to David Mixner, who writes this about Obama’s desperation to keep DADT alive in the face of a Federal Court injunction:
…in this time of tragic suicides and brutal hate crimes, the President couldn’t have sent a worst[sic] message. Instead of standing up for justice, freedom and human dignity, he reinforced the concept that the LGBT community is indeed different from other Americans and needed a special process to be integrated into American life. Every young LGBT American will see a Democratic President making a decision involving their lives in a process that separates us from other Americans and not brings us together.
