Lady Gaga brings the fight to the Senate! Join our fight.

The House has spoken - again! In a historic vote on December 15th, by a margin of 250-175, the House of Representatives passed a new standalone bill (H.R. 2965) that would repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Now the ball is in the Senate’s court.

We call upon the Senate to remain in session and in Washington until they pass the House bill to repeal "Don’t Ask, Don't Tell." Show your rage for repeal and insist the Senate stay in Washington until they have finished the job.

Call both your senators at the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Here's a sample script for your call:

"Hello, my name is ______ and I’m a constituent from __________ (city, state).

I'm calling to tell Senator _______ to stand with Majority Leader Reid, Chairman Levin, and Senator Lieberman and vote for the House bill to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' Fight back against Senators John McCain and Mitch McConnell's obstructionism and pass repeal this year.

Thank you.”

Call the Capitol switchboard today!

Hi Gaga! Okay? I’m from Brazil, and I admire you for being such wonderful people I would love to see you one day closer, and able to speak with you. I am Brazilian and it would be kinda hard but I would try for you, I love you so much ... Do not forget you have fans that Brazilians admire you and love you like I do. I think it Gaga kisses, love you too! ‘)

Samantha Blain-Maiza in miami, fl  on January 23, 2011 at 10.22 pm

America is known for equality !
Where is it?
Repeal dont ask dont tell !

Alexis in Soon-to-be-Texas on January 23, 2011 at 12.31 am

I am right there beside you Gaga!!!!!!!  I personally have an “aquaintance” who is currently stationed on Fort Bragg Army Base in North Carolina.  He deserves the right to be himself, let alone the countless others in the other branches of our terrific armed forces.  This law needs to be repealed immediately.  The constitution was written “by the people, for the people” but now it’s a shame to say that it seems more or less “by the bureaucrats, for the bureaucrats” and it’s disgusting.  I have your back as well as theirs, beyond a shadow of a doubt.  Blessed be, Gaga, and as for repealing this ridiculous law, so mote it be!!!!!!

Create Chaos in Cloud on January 15, 2011 at 03.01 am

Perception’s appear to need realignment.

Before DADT was made a issue it was a issue anyway’s.

But it was not made a issue, unless it was made to be a issue by being brought to the forefront and was required to be addressed becuse it was made a issue.

People have always had different view’s to their sexual alignment.

In the military that has alway’s existed and was not made a issue, unless IT became a issue.

For example in a firefight if passing the amminution became a Issue becuse of sexual alignment. IT would not be an ISSUE, it would be DEAD. (period)

When sexual alignment becomes a Issue or Conflict within the Chain of Command. It would not be an ISSUE, it would be DEAD.(period)

When differing views of sexual alignmet are utilized within/outside the military to make ISSUES that are not Issues it causes lines to be drawn in the sand.

DADT has been brought to the forefront and now is a ISSUE.

A much more reasonable solution should be taken, to resolve the issue.

Flush the Issue. (period)

If it becomes a Issue Address the Issue.

Do not make it a ISSUE, it is not a ISSUE then.

Flush the Issue. (period)

Flush the Issue like it use to be addressed before it became in the forefront.

When people want to make lines in the sand and say it is an issue.

Flush the Issue. (period)

For example in a firefight if passing the amminution became a Issue becuse of sexual alignment. IT would not be an ISSUE, it would be DEAD. (period)

When sexual alignment becomes a Issue or Conflict within the Chain of Command. It would not be an ISSUE, it would be DEAD.(period)

It is my feeling that people just love to draw lines in the sand. Rather than say is there a line in the sand here where there should not be a line in the sand at this time.

Determining and understanding that there are JUST a LOT of people that for some remarkable inability.

Need to be reminded all over again.

FLUSH the Damm Toilet or it will be a ISSUE all over again.

About Flushing the Toilet.

It is RUDE and IT is CRUDE.

And it is un-american.
And it is un-military.
And it is un-civilian.

About Flushing the Toilet.

The Toilet is for Crap, Crap Issues that are not flushed always cause this CRAP.

UNTIL perceptions are realigned.
and CRAP is Properly FLUSHED down the toilet before it overflows this country.

DADT is Crap becuse it was made a issue and brought as a ISSUE.

un-DADT is Crap becuse it was made a issue and brought as a ISSUE.

Why do people just refuse to read the sign that says, NO CRAP ALLOWED, FLUSH the Toilet.

You cant seem to read and flush and stop making issues..

You would be DEAD. (period)

Adam Beament in australia on January 08, 2011 at 07.04 pm

I believe that no ones sexuality should make a difference when they are serving there country!! We are all human, we all live and breath the same air!

Sean on January 04, 2011 at 09.34 pm

First I would like to say that what is going on here is amazing and reading through some of the comments I believe that the don’t ask don’t tell will be successfully repealed if everyone keeps doing what they are with just as much passion.
However I am not a resident of the united states and Im wondering if anyone knows of a way that I can help fight against ‘don’t ask don’t tell’
Much appreciated,
    Canadian resident
P.S could I just call and say I’m from the U.S??

Little monster in São Paulo SP Brasil on January 03, 2011 at 05.34 pm

I think we should all fight for what we want and I also think that no one comes to life by chance we all have a great purpose in this life and that’s what this great woman who is demonstrating that Lady Gaga is here to stay and defend the rights of repressed that has no courage to fight for their dreams because their wills no one should be discriminated against for their sexual orientation, color, race and other ...
each must be what it is, what it really feels to live, because life is one and if you do not take this one that God gave us a great opportunity to take advantage because it does not take her doing what we like, the that we enjoy?
And that life is made of moments that Fuck the consequences!
Do not care about what others think of you as it says itself Gaga cares what people think of themselves
Because it’s much better to be a decent homessexual or lesbian to being heterosexual offenders without a notion to be a kid without any pleasure in life if it carries with the opinion that is worth its own review because you are the most valuable thing you own.

Gaby in Brasil - São Paulo. on December 28, 2010 at 08.03 pm

I Really think this idea is very good to the U.S.A, I’m bissexual and I hate this low “Don’t Ask,Don’t Tell” WTF men ? Lady Gaga is my favorite singer,but now she is my favorite DIVA ! I love what she makes for the people of U.S.A ! Accept the homossexual not make you gay, make you more human.

mv8 in SF Ca on December 28, 2010 at 12.14 am

dfrosted88 posted a hateful message here. Funny how he doesn’t like ‘homos.’ He keeps sending me emails about wanting to be with me. I am a bisexual crossdresser. A guy in a dress getting hit on by a homophobic american male. Ja ja ja! LAdy Ga Ga you rule girl. Wish I had your make up artist and designer!

Brian on December 26, 2010 at 04.48 pm

I was stunned when I heard about the repeal being signed. It was surreal like the difference between being asleep and waking up. If you(Lady GaGa) had any impact to help repeal don’t ask don’t tell or even if you didn’t and it was a fruitless gesture, thank you. The same goes for everyone here.

kelvin rodrigues de sousa in são paulo on December 25, 2010 at 12.34 pm

i´m the favor,against the homophobia
let´s go fight againt this….........

dfrosted88 in California on December 19, 2010 at 03.54 am

I am a Veteran of the United Stated Armed Forces and not the fucking politically correct uniformed services as you homo’s like to call our American Hero’s.  Have you people fucking lost your minds?  Lady Kha Kha, listening to your ignorant speech on how the military should conduct business means about as much to our troops as Adolf Hitler speaking at a peace rally.  You don’t have a fucking clue to what you are talking about.  Take your fucking liberal ideas and your fucking karaoke band to Mexico and entertain the drug Cartel because We the People don’t want you here corrupting our youth.  I have earned my right to speak about the rights of American Soldiers.  Lady Kha Kha you need to shut the fuck up!

Mike in U.S.A. : Washington DC on December 16, 2010 at 08.35 pm

Thank-you for your support Gaga! It means a lot to those of us in uniform affected by this law.

We’ll keep fighting!

Daniel in Israel on December 13, 2010 at 07.54 pm

Lady GaGa, don’t break down! changing reality is hard. but it will happen if we will keep pushing! revolution is comming! we will end DADT!

Inma Veiga in Spain on December 13, 2010 at 07.49 pm

I trust in you Lady Gaga!! Repeal Don´t ask Don´ tell!! WE ARE FREE! In fact this law is ridiculous. YOU ARE OUR VOICE GAGA!! I´m very proud of you, you are my idol, and I hope to be like you!! Sincerely Inma Veiga
A lot of kisses and take care of you.

BusyDogg on December 10, 2010 at 04.12 am

Hi, I’m a Military Vet! They SHOULD NOT repeal DADT, Because the policy was put in place to prevent the DISTRACTION of knowing or caring about the sexual preference of the “person” next to you ! It means KEEP IT TO YOURSELF,  PRIVATE ! ! !  The term “UNIFORM” means just that, people brought together for a common GOAL ! !  I mean REALLY, What next Rainbow Uniforms ?  Rainbow Coalition ? ?  Rainbow Militia ? ?  Come on people GROW UP, PLEASE ! !  You people are trying to change MILITARY HISTORY, WHY ? ?  There are GOOD, HONEST people in the MILITARY, who joined for a reason that they thought was HONORABLE and NOBLE . And to change the way the MILITARY is governed SOCIALLY, to me, would leave a door open to other TRIVIAL issues ! ! !

James Chapman in Florida  on December 09, 2010 at 06.24 pm

The unconstitutional ways must stop now! AMERICAN IS THE HOME OF THE FREE?? where does it say “for straight people only”? children are growing up thinking it is ok to hate gay people. we need to put an end to these rediculous and unjust ways NOW

Thom in Cape Cod, Mass on December 05, 2010 at 01.17 pm

This bill needs to be repealed. I am a retired Air Force NCO of 22 years service. I am gay. I do not see any problem with gays in the military, we are there, and we are in all segments of society. All the ones who are afraid of gays, DON"t know gays. Please do not flatter yourselves either that our eyes are on you waiting, most of you are not that pretty. We join the military for the same reasons straight people do, to serve our country. Anyone who has a problem with gays, ie, Christians, conservatives, nazi’s, bullies, people who need a psychiatrist, should just get out if they can’t take the fact someone different from them is serving their country also. DADT needs to be put out of it’s misery. We’re here, and we’re not going away. John McCain is no one to speak when his background is severely tarnished by his antics, responsible for creating one of the worst accients on the air craft carrier Forrestal. Also responsible for giving away secrets and accepting special favorites from the enemy, look it up on youtube under Songbird McCain. Treat thoise around you as you want to be treated, some big guy once said that, maybe some of you should heed to it.

Jane Doe in NY on December 05, 2010 at 10.32 am

Ok so in all fairness noone on this site looks to have actually served in the military in any capacity. So I’m going to assume that they are all on a bandwagon. Second Lady Gaga? REALLY? Your an entertainer nothing more. Keep your nose were it belongs. The military is NOT the place for social reform.

JoeMyDodd in Mulberry, Florida  on December 04, 2010 at 11.07 pm

DADT needs to go. whether soldiers are open about their orientation or not, they shouldn’t be discharged if they want to serve their country.

I think Jon Stewart said it best:

“Why can’t they have gay people in the army? Personally, I think they are just afraid of a thousand guys with M16s going, “Who’d you call a faggot?”

Damian in baltimore MD on December 04, 2010 at 11.00 pm

im glad that one of the most influential pop star on the planet is helping to repeal DADT. We all need to relize that everyone isn’t going to be a heterosexual, we have homosexuals and need to relize that RIGHT NOW! The military is loosing alot of soildiers because of DADT we need these soildiers to stay gay or not gay. Come on people please support into repealing this horrible bill. And if you havent relize gay people are going to start being our teachers,doctors,dentists,bosses etc…not everyone is straight. How does the senate rather see 2 men or two women holding guns and bombs things that can harm us rather then holding hands. So please help support this in repealing this bill PLEASe… big shout out to MOTHER MONSTER….WE LOVE YOU

Megan on December 04, 2010 at 11.05 am

Could you clear this up for me? Are some in the military actually saying—‘We can’t stop discriminating against homosexuals now. That would be too stressful. We are in two wars and too busy bringing enlightenment of humane practices to the Middle East.’

What’s next kids saying, “I am too stressed from studying and doing homework to change my views and bullying of my homosexual classmates.”

I realize my comments are satirical, putting that aside, will you agree that no matter how justifiable the current discrimination seems, it is on a basic level hypocritical.

Rational Thinker in DC Area on December 02, 2010 at 09.49 pm

This website, Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, advocates repealing DADT.  As a servicemember, what about my legal rights to be protected from being forced to deal with this lifestyle.  I do not believe it is right and I do not want to be forced to have to deal with it.

Can you take my case?  Afterall, you are in the business of protecting all servicemembers right?  Protect me…a heterosexual.

Adisson Bolles on December 02, 2010 at 04.18 pm

I just called my senator and I was able to speak with him myself! Everyone should call if they want to help!

Mark in New Mwxico on December 02, 2010 at 03.41 pm

Just called both Senator Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udal representing New Mexico. It didn’t take more that three minutes. Please call your senators and let them know your stance on the issue at hand. I truly believe that the DADT will be repealed, with our help and support. No one should have to hide who they are.

jessica on December 02, 2010 at 03.02 pm

hello. good to know .... do not know much about politics and stuff
but if we deserve equality, we are different people but does not disappear so far not want the same things to be treated as good people is why everything that is put in front ..... You can “roll.

Manuel on December 01, 2010 at 07.54 pm

I am not even American, I still am strongly against this law. All people should be equal.
I think it’s very important to stand up for communities whose voices aren’t heard, especially the LGBT community. DADT never should have been created and is an abomination to not only the U.S., but society. I can’t call me senator as I live in Canada. Can the next person who calls their senator tell him that Canadian citizens want DADT to be repealed as well. I know what it feels like to be put down because of sexual orientation and I will not let others feel the same way.
And for Gaga,
you are a truly amaing person.
You have really inspired me to make a difference. Through your excellent music and your fight against DADT, you have done so much for the sake of what is right -equality.

BP in NYC on December 01, 2010 at 07.16 pm

The military is a volunteer service.

The military loses many volunteers because of DADT.

About 4 years ago, I was strongly considering joining the Navy.  I went through many meetings, passed drug tests and even went to get my physical before boot camp.  I was on the fence, but what prevented me from joining was DADT.

Since then, I have graduated college and now live in Manhattan (so I’m no dummy). 

Does the Navy really think that I can’t fire a gun as well as a straight person?

Does the Navy really think that I can’t perform the duties of a soldier as well as countless others before me have?

Our military is weaker because of DADT.


kslate in Texas on December 01, 2010 at 06.12 pm

DADT is not just a Gay rights issue.  I served in the military.  I am heterosexual.  I can say that in my case, DADT refers to either sexual orientation.  I am not interested in hearing about someone’s sexual preference.  I heard a lot of stories that I wish I hadn’t.  Let’s not make this into simply a homosexual issue.  I was propositioned by a homosexual, I was offended.  I could have had this person decommissioned.  I didn’t.  I was a soldier and I handled it the way it should have been handled, with words.  Gaga, when you have served in the military, and reached a rank that permits it, then you can get involved in military procedures and rules.  Until then, let our military run the military.

Erin on December 01, 2010 at 03.59 pm

Call your senators now! <3.

Anna Zabierek in Boston, MA on December 01, 2010 at 03.51 pm

Even though all 42 members of the Republican caucus signed a letter to Senate majority leader Harry Reid stating that they will not address legislation including the Defense Bill containing DADT, we can still make that phone call to our Senators to encourage them to repeal DADT IF they DO end up getting the opportunity to vote on it during a Lame-Duck session this month.

I just called my MA Republican Senator, Scott Brown to ask to to repeal DADT if he gets the opportunity—he is one of the Republicans on the fence over this issue, so if you are from Massachusetts, please make the call, the sooner the better - Congress is only in session for 17 more days this year before Democrats will lose the majority and lose this strong possibility we have of getting DADT repealed right now.

Thanks for encouraging all your fans to do something Lady Gaga.

Trish in Bloomington,IN on December 01, 2010 at 10.10 am

Thank you all for calling your senators. For the people posting negative comments, that is not what this is for. Feel however you want, just don’t tell us about it. I love you all. Thanks Gaga!

Jen Jackson in Baltimore, MD 21221 on December 01, 2010 at 12.29 am

I called at 12:36am and to my amazement a “real” person answered the phone.  When I told her I was calling regarding DADT she asked my zip code.  I told her and she put me through to our senators voice mail box.  After four rings, there was a recorded answer and I left a message.  Lets hope that this year is the year for change.

Serena T in Alameda, California on November 30, 2010 at 10.37 pm

I was in the Air force for 2 years before I was discharged under DADT. I loved being in the military and I did very well. I received so many awards. I want to reinlist to be in the Air force Reserve so I called my Senator here in California. Thank you Lady Gaga for standing up for us and making it known that being gay/lesbian isn’t who we are it’s just what we are! My name is Serena and I’m just a normal person like everyone else.

Dillon Turman in Arkansas on November 30, 2010 at 10.01 pm

Firstly, I would love to reiterate what I so diligently and continuously spread throughout my conversations - I respect all of our troops. I am a firm believer in equality, and DADT MUST be repealed.

Secondly, I would like to thank each and everyone of the troops for what they are doing for our country, and for you guys to be battling for our country as well as undergoing all of this hate and amnesty from everyone who disagrees with DADT must be overbearing. Just know you have me as a constituent and a proud active member of this action.

Lastly I would to conclude that before any of you who disagree leave your comment, think twice on whom you are judging. Someone because of their difference? Or merely your brother, sister, best friend or neighbor.

Called in Indiana and Senator Bayh’s line was busy and his voicemail box was full…hopefully with messages urging the repeal of DADT. Got through to Senator Lugar though…hopefully this brings a must needed change to this extremely oppressive and discriminating bill. We were “Born This Way” and are sick of hiding it. Thanks for the support Gaga!

Antonio Paola in Vineland, NJ on November 30, 2010 at 05.26 pm

I tried multiple times to get through to Senator Gillibrand and Senator Schumer but had no luck. I thought sending an email would suffice.
See the funny thing about DADT is that all civil rights movements were eventually passed. It’s only a matter of time till the repeal takes.

Remember “It’s always wrong to hate, but it’s never wrong to love.”

Joey on November 30, 2010 at 03.04 pm

Hello. I’d just like to comment on this situation, because I too feel strongly about the equality between people in our country. Our country is in a state of crisis, if you ask me. Suicide is the ultimate proof that our youth population is being mislead, not just due to the media but due to the discrimination in which they see and hear about on a regular basis.

Sexuality is just one of the many things on the growing list of societal issues. In my opinion, sexuality should not be and is not an issue. It is impossible to simply look at someone and come to the conclusion that he/she is homosexual. It is society that plants the seed in young people’s minds that if not every boy wants to participate in the school sports program, then he is gay or “different”.

Please, won’t someone wake up to the fact that people are people. This world is our only world, and this country is our own country. Let’s band together and make them the best places they can be.

Hozai in Roswell, New Mexico on November 30, 2010 at 02.52 pm

Being Gay isn’t a crime. I’m 17 and I hope my call counts.

Rhonda St. Claire in New Mexico, U.S.A., Earth, Milky Way G.  on November 30, 2010 at 11.41 am

Thank you for your influence regarding this matter. Please mention transgender people and our civil rights and bisexuals as well as often as you do gay and lesbian to get those words into the language of the common person in order to get the true ideas of what they stand for into the minds of everyone so we can make this world what God intended it to be. Thanks, again! you’re wonderful.
Oh, yes, I wrote my Senators, too.

PS love your music.

Eric Chicago in Chicago on November 30, 2010 at 11.13 am

Lady Gaga is a hero for fighting to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” If the soldiers in uniform are fine with repealing don’t ask, don’t tell, why should anyone else care? There is nothing to fear. “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is un-American. Some groups can not have greater freedoms than others. I love you Lady Gaga!

I feel so fortunate to be a part of this!  I have called and left messages on the answering machines of the senators for Virginia.  I hope that they listen.  I hope that as we stand together, we will help this movement accomplish equality for all.  I live in a very rural area that I find can be very close minded about issues such as this one.  My mission is to expand horizons and open minds, while learning and encouraging acceptance to accept each other.  We need to teach this and model this for our children as well…acceptance is so very important….in all realms.

david jennings in Columbus, OH on November 30, 2010 at 09.06 am

I called Sen. Voinovich, and asked his staff to tell him I feel about the repeal of DADT and to switch his previous no vote to a yes. They said they would give him the message. I also just wrote a hand written letter to him, with a few pics, and strong words on why i feel this is an important issues our nation faces. Dont just call or email, Write a REAL Letter and mail it off today!!! It can only help!

Matthew Steven in GB  on November 30, 2010 at 08.31 am

I am not a citizen of the United States, but my opinions and emotions on this subject are as devout as an American constituent’s are.

Thank you, Lady Gaga for your help!!

Benito in Fort Bliss, TX  on November 30, 2010 at 12.07 am

I emailed my Senator but it’s McCain so I don’t know its goint to help much. I would like to thank Lady Gaga and everyone else for their support because I am a gay soldier.

Pat Etherton in New Mexico on November 29, 2010 at 11.49 pm

Instead of calling, I sent the following to my 2 senators:

Dear Senator ____,

  My name is Patricia Etherton and I’m a constituent from Roswell, NM.

  I’m asking you to prioritize the defense bill with “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal included during the lame-duck session. Fight back against Senator John McCain’s opposition and please vote for DADT repeal this year.

  It isn’t equal if it’s sometimes.

  Thank you, Pat

Delana Darrow in Ardmore Oklahoma on November 29, 2010 at 11.43 pm

Lady Gaga your great I’ve called my senates several times on this issue we all need to stand to together to get this ridiculous law repealed,thank you so much for your help in supporting LGBT community and the soldiers who suffer because of this hateful law…

paige in 223_US on November 29, 2010 at 11.06 pm

Rumor Lisa Daluisio in San Pedro on November 29, 2010 at 10.56 pm

People who want to defend our coutnry are people who want to defend our country their sexual preference should have nothing to do with that. In all honesty I do not understand at all why this is even a problem, to me is discrimination, it is just as bad as racial discrimination, it’s ridiculous and needs to be stopped.

I watched the video of lady gaga speaking in the park in maine. It sent chills through my body and all of a sudden I started to shed tears of joy. I wasn’t use to seeing this side of steph she is my favorite artist and I like that she is using her voice in ways other than music. Iam 21 years old and I can proudly say that lady gaga is my idol. I don’t know what to say other than THANK YOU GAGA because you have made my life alot easier over these last few years! THANK YOU for opening these doors for our generation! God bless all LBGT service members along with the straights as well. My 24 year old brother just came back from Iraq earlier this year. One Day we will all be free and not just a piece of meat because we were born this way! I have so much more to say… OH! thank you everyone that posted messages it inspired me to take a minute and write one as well….... alright bye smile

Thank you for being the voice for me.  I’m a soldier in the US Army who’s been with my g/f for 5 years, I can’t get BAH or any other Army benefits because I’m gay, I struggle to get by financially because I will never be afforded the same rights as heterosexuals, I have to hide who I am on a daily basis, thanks.

First of i would like to say i am a big fan. Second i would also like to say that it is a very good thing that you are doing this. I am glad that you would help those who face unfairness and to try to support them. People can be so unfair and judge mental. I thank you for reaching out to people like that. Please, Lady Gaga e-mail me i would be so happy if you did thank you.

Jeff on October 08, 2010 at 05.09 pm

I have read many comments on here. I didn’t see any that were against what you said and support. Seems very bias. The military is not an experiment nor a place for gays. I have served in the navy aboard a carrier and I must say having open gays around me on a naval ship in berthing would not be good. It’s not a good idea and that’s why it failed in the senate. The dems control everything right now and you only have them to blame. Peace and keep up the great music.

Lisa on October 08, 2010 at 03.20 pm

I have some questions about what happens if we abolish Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. I don’t mean these questions to come across as support for Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, or as a reason to get rid of it—they are merely questions that attempt to elucidate this situation of abuse more wholly. I don’t feel that the situation is clear enough to most people to formulate a wise course of action. I feel that people are quick to get angry and call for change without having a clear idea of what that change will look like or how it will really impact people. Or if the change that is being called for is anything that will be useful in a lasting way.

So, before calling for anything i would like to know: What protection, benefit, or possibilities does Don’t Ask Don’t Tell offer as it stands?
What would be done to maintain these positive attributes were Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repealed?

Because here’s what I can see, admittedly knowing very little, from where i sit:
Don’t Ask Don’t Tell doesn’t seem to be detrimental in and of itself—it basically makes sexuality a non-issue by preventing anyone from having to talk about it. The problem seems to be that certain people with power in the armed forces are identifying gay service people regardless of DADT and taking unfair action toward them.

What if we kept DADT and made it a crime to persecute or discharge a person from the armed services because of sexual preference?

I know, that’s how it is now, right?

What if the problem is that even good systems can be broken by people who don’t agree with them?

What if DADT is a part of a good system, but that there are people who have so much anger and misunderstanding that they will subvert a means of protection like DATA in order to carry out their personal agenda of expressing their anger or disgust anyway?

What do we do then?

Won’t the same subversion happen again if we take away DADT and put out a new law to protect gay service members?

What can we do to really solve the problem?

I’m not sure what the answer is. I think it involves holding people to a standard that they do not wish to meet in terms of tolerating differences. Which is far more difficult than just calling for change, or calling for the abolition of DADT.

I’m a people would focus their energy a little more on looking for the root of the problem and trying to see if the thing everyone is yelling about is really a good idea.
Maybe abolishing DADT is a good idea, but I haven’t heard enough actual evidence yet, from Lady GaGa or anyone, to be convinced. Please reply if you’d like to talk with me about gaining a better understanding of the problem and possible solutions.

Danika Slick in Henderson, Tx. on October 08, 2010 at 02.58 am

Haven’t we been threw these wars already? How many more does our Nation have to suffer through before we can call ourselves United? How much more money do we have to sacrifice to wars just to add one more question on a sheet of paper? Is THE MAN really taking away our freedom of speach? They really should focus on our future and stop thinking 5 minutes in front of their noses, which always seems to be in the air.

saad in canada  on October 07, 2010 at 11.18 pm


Dear Gaga,

Let me begin by saying that I am a huge fan of your music and your style, you have inspired me to no end. I have been a devoted little monster for the past 2 years.

But these days, something is not right Gaga. Over the past month or so I have watched you make every public appearance revolve around the issue of allowing gay men and women to serve in the US military.

What about the peace sign on your wrist? What about the message of peace and love that your idol John Lennon brought to the world? I can’t imagine there’s no Gaga, but lately I’m not so sure…

I know your heart is in the right place, Gaga. I’m a gay man myself. But I am also an Iraqi. You should know that the actions of your country’s military have destroyed my family, my people and my country beyond repair.

So why are you encouraging the militarization of my brothers and sisters? You are basically saying that they can and SHOULD kill ME. Gay people and good people across the world DO NOT WANT WAR UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. And I am sure that deep down inside, you are among the millions who feel the same way.

I hope you understand how disconcerting it is to see my hero, a unique and talented woman who promotes love and tolerance between all people, embark on this strange mission that is ultimately, pro-war.

As a result, you may have lost one of your little monsters forever.

Love regardless,

antonio sellitto in england uk on October 07, 2010 at 09.42 pm

Camila Oliveira in Brazil, Pernambuco on October 07, 2010 at 07.42 pm

Hello everyone! My name is Camila and I’m a fan of Lady Gaga, but I had no knowledge of the law “Do not ask, do not tell” Gaga opened the eyes of the world, showing everyone that prejudice is not located only in streets, but also in government. In Brazil we also have this kind of prejudice, but not much seen by people, I am not American, but support the repeal of “Do not ask, do not tell” we need more people in the world as Gaga
Love to all, no more.

‘m pProud that my son is a fan, Lady Gaga.
‘m glad I live in the Netherlands where Gay is better accepted than in America, but here are still to decide. I think it has to do with ignorance and stupidity of many people in our world. I have 5 sons and if one is gay, I have no problem with that, World open up to all people and throw away your prejudices.
Fight through and you’ll win GaGa !

I just don’t understand why people are being persecuted for something that they can’t control. The only choice in being gay is either to accept it or repress it.

Even though I’m not a soldier, I am gay so I feel just as disgusted by this ridiculous policy. I’m behind Lady Gaga and the effort to repeal 100%. If this has been bought to my attention by anyone else, I would still be on board to eradicate DADT. It’s wrong and needs to be stopped once and for all.

I just hope that one day, the world in its entirety see that homosexuality is nothing to be feared or loathed. For us, it’s as normal as heterosexuality is for a straight person.

Lucy Lomax in London, UK  on October 03, 2010 at 10.10 am

Although American Law has nothing to do with British Law and politics I think that American leaders are still living in the 19th Century. Like it or not a small majority of the world are gay,bisexual, lesbian or transgender. A preference of sexuality does not effect our jobs or our day to day way of life.
*Don’t ask don’t tell* is a kick in the teeth for LGBT as we all want a *normal* life like the hetrosexuals of this world who seem to abuse all their rights of life. Who in this world has the right to undermine the gay community by telling us who we can and cannot be? What ever happened to freedom? Especially in a country like America, I am proud to be a lesbian and like my lesbian friends in the RAF so are they. Out and proud should be a new law. If your happy with who you are, despite your sex, race, age or sexual orientation who are the American government to decide that you should hide yourself, be ashamed.
Bring on Lady Gaga’s new law, atleast someone has the decency to speak our to the world about a subject still so raw in America, and even though she isn’t gay, she has the most up most respect to the gay community. Its nice to finally feel wanted in this world and not made out to be living a *wrong and dirty* life.
Don’t ask don’t tell should be abolished, and all the people who have a problem with anything *different* should not serve a nation so important to this world.

Katie Hovencamp in NE Pennsylvania on September 29, 2010 at 10.23 am

Hi Lady Gaga,
I wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful inspiration. I saw you at the monsterball in Philly on Sept. 14. 2010. You were absolutely amazing. I wanted to thank you for inspiring me, I am currently working as a visual artist and I have been going through an idea dryspell. Then I saw your performance/ music and artistic works and I became inspired once again. So thank you for being so wonderful.
I was so excited to see how active of a role you played when it came to don’t ask don’t tell. After the concert I went and contacted my senators. I called and wrote letters. This is a letter from Sen. Robert Casey-PA. I was so excited that he wrote me. I wanted to share my response with you.

Dear Miss Hovencamp:

Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding the status of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011. I appreciate hearing from you about this issue.

On September 21, 2010, the Senate took a vote on whether or not to debate the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 following a favorable vote by the Senate Armed Services Committee. This bill provides the annual authorization for programs and policies that affect the nation’s Armed Forces like equipment purchases, military pay raises, healthcare benefit decisions, and a determination of the size of our overall military.

It is regrettable that debate and subsequent votes on each of these important topics was cut short. As always, ensuring the necessary resources to protect American lives, defend our nation and provide support to our servicemembers and their families’ lives at the core of this important legislation. I look forward to having a productive debate on this bill, which has successfully passed and been signed into law each year of the past 40 years.

Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about this or any other matter of importance to you.

If you have access to the Internet, I encourage you to visit my web site, I invite you to use this online office as a comprehensive resource to stay up-to-date on my work in Washington, request assistance from my office or share with me your thoughts on the issues that matter most to you and to Pennsylvania.

Bob Casey
United States Senator

I was saddened by the results of the vote, however at the same time I was happy. I was happy to see that change is happening for the LGBT community. Even though we didn’t get the results we wanted, we did come pretty damn close. We were 4 votes away. Next time we will win. I am remaining hopeful. One day we will achieve equality.
Again, thank you for everything that you do. You have such a beautiful heart. You have the ability to unite people which is an amazing thing to witness. Thank you for bringing people together. Thank you for being you. One day I hope our paths will cross.

P.S congrats on all of your VMAs!

As a 16 year old I am not prepared for anyone to take me (or anyone else that depicts there age on here) seriously. As a teenager developing in this active world, it is amazing to see such a fight put up for what is right (not what we think is). Gay or straight we (many people I know) are and would gladly like to take part in this if anyone were here to listen to our side of the story besides the conflict of adults (opposing sides) I see a lot of brilliance put into this situation, although it is fairly political (not something I enjoy). Your generation is listening Gaga and we will stand with you, and you have made us proud. My classmates and I have had open discussions about this situation. Whether you read this or not it goes for anyone out there from 1-100 and beyond.

You serious? If something WORKS leave it ALONE! Period. DADT is the perfect solution
to a already volitile situation. High level testostrarone during war ...just think about   that for a minute.  Leave it alone


Nathan in California on September 27, 2010 at 05.11 pm

Lady Gaga is wrong. the dont ask dont tell law keeps them in the military and im sorry but i dont think a bunch of fags in iraq would help do anything helpful but maybe make good human shields for the real soldiers. I would not want some cake baking homo beside me in war it is no place for fags. As far as the Navy its worse to be kept on a ship with flamers due to their homosexual acts and thoughts while being around so many other guys on the ship. This is unfare to str8 real men who have to deal with these fags and their crying about work. I have not met a gay once in the military that didn’t get picked on by everyone else. So discharging homos from the military helps keep the sissy flamers from turning our military into a big gay joke. what country would fear a gay military?

Lady Gaga vou aproveitar o espaço aqui e dizer que amo muito, muito você. és a minha inspiração, depois de conhecer você, suas história enfim depois de saber todo seu trajeto para chegar onde chego ou fiquei tão abismada e pensei: “nossa essa mulher é muito ‘fera’”. E agora eu sou uma grande fã sua, e um dos meus maiores sonhos é conhecer você. Te admiro muito Lady Gaga sem você, já não sei mais viver *-*.
Espero que o povo entenda você, entenda o que está fazendo, apoio você sempre e estou contigo nessa luta também, sou gay e muitos ainda não me aceitam; as pessoas tem que entenderem que pessoas gays, lésbicas, transexual são também pessoas normais como qualquer uma outra, elas também amam, choram, riem, enfim são também pessoas normais, e é isso o que importa. Temo que aceitar as pessoas como elas são, não importa como ela seja ou o que ela tem para oferecer em troca de uma amizade, até porquê não é isso o que importa, o que realmente importa é o amor que você sente por essa pessoa, o carinho que vs tem por ela… Enfim, I love you Lady Gaga ♥

Macy Francke in Merrill, WI  on September 26, 2010 at 12.25 am

Dear Lady GaGa,
  It really means a lot to me that you have been speaking up on this issue. it’s very near to my heart because my girlfriend is gay, and in the national guard. She is strong and she offers a lot to them. and sometimes it’s hard for a 17 year old to make a difference, but someone who has a chance to reach millions, ans does something to spread the word, and help our nation, like you have, is very influential. I can’t thank you enough for all your support, and I am proud to say that my WI senator Russ Feingold is for the repeal. his quote is: “Discrimination has no place in American society, especially when it undermines our national security by hurting military readiness. At a time when our Armed Forces are stretched thin, it makes no sense to continue denying talented Americans the chance to serve their country openly.  Despite today’s setback, I will continue to support the repeal of this policy that prevents highly qualified, patriotic Americans from serving their country.”
I reallly wish I could just give you a hug, and let you know, you are an inspirational woman. And I have the utmost respect for you. May God bless you, and keep on pushing and fighting for the sake of our country. <3
Love, Macy.

I’m sure we’ll be able to reach our freedom, even soon, and people like Lady Gaga is the perfect demonstration of this.

Best Congratulations.

Hi, Lady Gaga I think that you are a good person and with this action you demonstrate it :I am for the repealing of the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” law too this is the time for to said No to the discrimination
against gay and lesbian people.

Ed in Brazil on September 24, 2010 at 07.35 pm

I support any cause which fights against prejudice in general.

Although I am Brazilian, the same “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy happens here, but with a less vehemence and without this nomenclature. This is a shame… a shame which is not related to LGBTs Community only, but against mankind as well.

Since we are humans, and that makes us reasonable people, nothing fairer than see how the “Other” feels, concerning an opressive society they live, mainly in Western one. Ironically, we (Westerners) say that we live based on Ancient Greek society, but I do not see this when we talk about such subject.

I do not know why this happens in America (all continent, I meant) yet, if we live in a world which sexuality is manifested even when we are in our homes. To pretend that something like this does not exist, it is a matter of selfish and not a lack of knowledge.

More action about social causes by our governors (from world wide) MUST be done. We need it, we want it! It IS a matter for everyone!

Erin W. in San Diego, CA on September 24, 2010 at 07.07 pm

- To Melissa in Ohio
I am in the military and I can tell you that there a lot of us that speak up consistently against the bigots that slip through! Repealing DADT is no different then allowing women a more active role in he military. YES we are going to need to educate ppl but that does not mean that the military that I proudly serve is an intolerable one!!! Yes we have a closeness that most never have unless they are blood family… but our families are the men and women that I serve with and may what ever god you pray to help you if I find that you are hazing anyone for any reason!!!! That is how a very large number of us feel! Ppl like you and your husband are the reason why we are having such a hard time give GLT the basic rights that they deserve in the military!!!

How dare you stand there and be a military spouse and bad mouth us when all you see is what you want to see. I recently went to the Pride Parade out here in San Diego and let me tell you there were a lot of military out there! Yes they are gay and then there are those like me out there supporting our FRIENDS in their plight for the same rights that I have!!! I don my uniform everday for those that can not or will not defend themselves! Notice that no where in there did I say I only protect straight ppl!!!

Erin on September 24, 2010 at 06.52 pm

I am an active duty person who has many times questioned the HONOR in having a policy that tells you that you must lie about who you are!!! We are told that we must behave with honor and yet they take away the very right of that by telling any one who is not “straight” that they must lie about every aspect of their lives. I don’t care who you are in a relationship with I care whether or no I can trust you in combat! I have taught leadership courses to my junior people and let them know that this can’t go on any longer. The military isn’t a safe haven for bigotry and narrow mindedness… we are supposed to represent the best America has o offer!! Please speak out in repealing DADT!

This is why I repeal Don’t ask Don’t Tell…..  And The LGBT Community…........ WE WILL WIN IN THE END!!!!!!

Ron shields in saginaw michigan on September 24, 2010 at 12.14 pm

the question of repealing DADT falls to these simple thoughts. During combat operations, and your running for the next fighting position your not stoping to wonder if the soldier by you is going to try and kiss you. all your thinking is how to keep him and yourself alive. when you moving to the next building when fighting in a village, no one is wondering if the soldier covering you back, is looking at you back side. you have faith that the soldier will follow you through that door. If your wounded and on the ground, you reach up for a hand to get you home…you dont choose what hand to he gay or not. gay or straight,,,all are willing to fight next to thier brothers.

Lady GaGa, ever since your first hit song, Just Dance, came out I have been an ultimate fan. I have loved you since the beginning and I have been to the monster ball twice, once in Cleveland, OH and in Charlotte, NC. I loved both shows and every time I teared up when you made your equality speeches during the show. However, this speech that you made had me literally drowning in my own tears. Thank God for you Lady GaGa, you’re a true beacon of hope and inspiration for the whole LGBT community. God Bless You, and I will keep fighting with you! THANK YOU! smile

Jennifer Stapleton in Melbourne, Australia on September 24, 2010 at 07.11 am

I am a child who has to grow up in this world, my sexual oreitation is irrelivant as is my birthplace, my gender and any other things people THINK define who I am. All anyone needs to know is I am a human being, This isn’t my fight I am an autralian its not even my country but I do not believe that matters, I fight EVERYWHERE for acceptance and understanding for ANYONE. We are all people of the world and we all have to live together, there is so much pain and judgement amoung men that stops us from living free and happy lives. Don’t ask don’t tell is stopping people who are just trying to help their country with their fellow man they are human beings and showing prejudice against them or anyone is wrong. Leading a coutry and asking its people to follow you and then telling them to single out and disown a certain type of person is causing harm and teaching people not to accept and value eachother. Its wrong and it should be stopped, I am appauled by Don’t ask Don’t tell and I think that is should be abolished. I am a 16 year old straight female of australia and I am the voice of my country. Equality and Love of EVERYONE is the only way, our world has too much pain and suffering, we wont survive if we continue our ways.
I would like to thank lady gaga for doing what she does and being who she is and accepting and loving everyone and making young people everywhere aware of the wrong in the world.

Alain Calderon in New York on September 24, 2010 at 01.47 am

its outrageous how these passionate people are being discharged when there protecting us as there duty. they didnt go to the military worrying about what they would find out abvout other peoples personal lives like the goverment is doing but doing something they felt was there duty to go out and so. the goverment has corrupted our constitution with these laws discriminating what they dont like. and what some dont realize that would of agreed with the decision of going pro-dadt is that these people dont care about you but themselves because iit should be taken with honor that someone would serve a country thats unjust as what it has become. its become a corruption with those in higher power and bringing us down to fall and to suffer in its consequence. it is unfair and it shouldnt be because its contradicting the purpose of the constitution. i have complete respect for those who have served the military and still do because to serve such an unjust country. that because your gay is a problem then the goverment is out of there mind and lacks knowledge and are coward for making such shallow decisions. i pledge to join sldn and lady gaga in appealing dadt

Ron04 on September 24, 2010 at 12.52 am

To this guy: “What the fuck does it matter what your sexuality is in this context?”

You really need to move to Canada, or Iran, or anywhere that the freedoms afforded you by our US Military and its strength and efficiency are not so obvious and taken for granted.  If you believe the things you say, then renounce your citizenship and get out!  Who do you think you are to dictate your morality onto other citizens who appreciate what a free society really means, and what it takes to maintain that.  YOU have no clue as to either.

Mark Wayne in Washington DC on September 23, 2010 at 10.43 pm

Yes. Equality is important.

More important is realizing that we live in a militaristic culture. Our nation spends HALF of its discretionary budget on military materiel and personnel. The US government spends more on the military than the next 45(!) countries combined(!). The US government accounts for 48% of the world spending on the military. This is pure, unadulterated, unfathomable insanity. Stop wasting your time worrying about who can serve in the Killing Machine. I understand that people who want to “serve in the military” can’t. And this is wrong. But the fact is that “serving” in the military really means acting in the service of murder, the murder of your fellow human beings.

So shut the fuck up about who can serve in the military and who can’t—no one should. You’ll go in, they’ll train you how to kill people you don’t know, how to maim people you’ll never see, and you’ll end up in Afghanistan, standing in someone’s living room while their children cower in the corners of the room, their tears dropping and drying on the dirt floor just before you and your platoon get all jumpy and waste them in their own house—executed like dogs.

What the fuck does it matter what your sexuality is in this context?

Internet Kill Switch Bill On Senate Short List
September 15, 2010 by Bob Livingston

The Internet Kill Switch Bill I’ve told you about before (here, here, here and here) continues to evolve and is creeping closer to reality.

According to, two separate bills — one pushed by Senators Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Thomas Carper (D-Del.) and another backed by Senators Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) — have been combined and are now on the Senate’s short list for passage.

The new bill would give the power to shut down the Internet in case of national emergency to the Department of Homeland Security. Under the bill the Internet could be closed down for four months before Congress could review it. The bill would also require cybersecurity professionals be certified.

The elected elites couch the bill as necessary for national security, but Lieberman let slip the real reason when he told CNN’s Candy Crowley, “Right now China — the government — can disconnect parts of its Internet in a case of war. We need to have the ability to do that, too.”

Of course, China disconnects portions of the Internet whenever there’s civil strife, as do other totalitarian regimes. It’s done to suppress the flow of information. Elites hate the free flow of information.

Rockefeller has gone so far to say he wishes the Internet had never been invented and we still communicated with paper and pencil.

Senate aides told the bill faces a number of hurdles but the goal is to get the bill passed and on President Barack Obama’s desk by the end of the year. The bill could come up in the next four weeks, or it could be much later, aides said.

This bill is about one thing: The totalitarian suppression of free speech. The elites and corporate press know they have lost control of the message. This has resulted in the rise of the Tea Party and general discontent over the direction of the American political system. That frightens the fascists on both sides of the aisle.

The Internet Kill Switch Bill is their effort to regain control.

Hat Tip:

Please call ,fax write kill this bill for the good of mankind!

Lady Gaga the only way to get DADT passed is to vote these old fossils out of office.
I loved your speech you new what you where saying, you talked intelligently; you wrote your own speech. You didn’t have to read off your hand. Like dumb ass Palin does. I really think if you rally the younger voters that really don’t vote in off year elections to vote people in that well vote for DADT is the only way to get this passed.
You are the shining star Kept up the good work.

Gaga U rock…

Though I’m not an American but i support your voice coz it’s a discrimination, and it’s not about a country or community this happens all over the world and it should be stopped coz that’s a violation of Human rights.
U do it in a right way and I’m very proud hearing your voice on this issue…!!!
Thanks for being that brave to fight for this.
I’m also with ya…!!!!

Frank Rulloff in Dallas, Texas  on September 22, 2010 at 02.24 pm

I’m with you Gaga in many of your points, but why fight for rights that at times, we don’t even excersice?  Why fight for something that maybe down the road other generations will dismiss and will destroy? Why? Our trroops do deserve to be themselves and they do deserve to be treated equaly, however, when you’re in battle or in one of these military branches, does these laws really/rights really apply, no, not at all. Trust me, I’m a gay married man, and I love my husband. I was an airman for Airfoce for 4 years, but I would never go back under any circumstances because of the fact that I’m not going to fight anymore for something that time after time after time will get dismissed.

Mike Osweiler in Chandler, AZ on September 22, 2010 at 12.44 pm


Regarding your position on repeal of the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ suggest you try to find something more constructive to repeal such as the death penalty. Note that mentally disabled person is going to be wasted on Thursday. This person is contained an is no harm to anyone now. If her life is spared she may have a chance to be helped in becoming a valued citizen.

You will find that the majority of this country did not support repeal of the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ policy as you can see by the votes yesterday. The repeal would have done nothing other to than to degenerate the quality and integrity of our armed services.

I would be interested in hearing your rationale for promoting this repeal.
If you look at world culture you will find that homosexuality is taboo even among animals. People who struggle with sexuality problems typically have had social traumas early in life that have manifested this behavior. The person typically has an identity/self worth crises to deal with.

Suggest you promote agencies/organizations that can help these struggling people regain their heterosexual identity and enjoy a respected/valued/productive heterosexual life.

Even though I’m not from The US or citizen of it. I am proud of hearing Gaga’s voice on this issue. I’m writing this comment, because personally i think that’s not only about country or community, but it’s a violation of human rights that happens nearly everywhere and it should be stopped all over the world.
As a part of youth I support this advocacy campaign. I’m with all of you…!!!

Good luck to all of us…

Sickened on September 22, 2010 at 09.24 am

I stand behind the don’t ask don’t tell. I as a straight american am sickened by gays wanting the same rights and privileges as straight people. I feel very uncomfortable around gays as most of them are straight bashers lesbians being the worst. If you want to be treated like an avg normal American then act like one. Even in the vowels of marriage it says man and wife. Its not natural for people to be gay. Homosexuality would be the end of mankind if everyone was gay . How could we reproduce and carry on our legacy? This world has gone to crap. Homosexuality is gross period point blank.

Cast Down in Madison, WI on September 22, 2010 at 07.37 am

Join & Tell; A Filibusterbuster

Dear Lady Gaga, Fellow Little Monsters, Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transgender, and Straight Alliance,

I am writing you today because we find ourselves in familiar position.  The Republican Party has decided once again to play politics with our rights.  Individuals within the US Senate have voted to not address a growing concern of discrimination against homosexuals who are serving in the US Military.  Our cause is not a pawn; our cause is King, and Gaga is our Queen.  It is time for us to stand up, to be strong, and to show these individuals that we are more intelligent than their game.

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has a flaw, and it is not the flaw that you may think.  What would happen if homosexuals from across the nation began to enlist in the military without sharing their sexual preference?  The answer is they would be allowed.  For the first half of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell specifically says “Don’t ask”.  Because they are not allowed to ask us, they would not be able to stop us.  What would happen if upon completing The Oath of Enlistment, these same homosexuals informed the military “I am a gay American”?  They would be discharged.  If any American citizen joins the US Military and then utters 5 small words they would be discharged from the military.

If we all began joining and telling, if valuable time and resources began to be wasted, if we began to have many gays in the military, with extremely short tours of duty, would they feel the need to “Ask”.  Fortunately, asking wouldn’t be allowed.  Asking would require approval from the very same senate that failed to acknowledge us today.  If every gay person in America simply enlisted in military and then informed the military that they were gay, the US Senate would decide to debate the issue.  The powers at be fear nothing more than when the people unite, when the people stand up, and when we the people force them to take notice.  Let us not be a casualty of procrastination.

I hope that this letter finds you Stefani.  I hope that you make the right decision and decide to escalate this issue.  I hope that you call upon homosexuals to enlist in the military and then utter the words “I am a gay American”.  If they want to kick us all out of the military, then let it be written.  Let all gays be armed forces who are armed with their voice.  Let us stand up and defend those who wish to defend us.  Please ask us to Join & Tell.

Coralie in Lyon, France  on September 22, 2010 at 03.35 am

Gaga, I’m so proud of you. I’m with you, French Little Monster are with you.
Let’s repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell ! This law is unbearable. GO FIGHT GAGA ! Monster love, Monster support. PAWS UP FOR REPEAL DADT !

jt in Pensacola FL on September 22, 2010 at 03.20 am

We need to keep DODT, 14k service members is less than 1% of the total force in a democracy that’s a minority!  So just because I don’t have a pop star on my side my voice doesn’t get heard?  This policy isn’t about hate, its about maintaining good order and discipline and being practical.  DoD already caters to handicapped people by providing them parking spots that no one on base can use!  Now we should build separate gay facilities for less than 1% of the force?  That would be fraud waste and abuse especially in a time of war.

Ron04 in Detroit on September 21, 2010 at 11.16 pm

GAGA we love you but the DREAM ACT is treason.  IT MUST BE UNBUNDLED then we can all support the DADT repeal - not before !!

When GaGa puts on some ABUs and picks up an M16, Ill be interested in his/her/its opinion. Until then, keep to your crying for attention clothing and unrivaledy terribly dreadfully disgusting audio compilations.

john doe on September 21, 2010 at 10.47 pm

In my opion I believe that you are more so fighting to pervent people to get discharge from the militay for being gay. Not fighting the don’t ask don’t tell. You need to think fully on what you are saying and what you are fighting for. Disbaning the don’t ask don’t tell means that there will be openly gay people in the military which is taking away the right of thoes who REALLY DON’T WANT TO KNOW. You have to think that when you are in the military you live at very close quarter with eachother and if you don’t feel confertable with your battle buddy next to you then your whole mind frame is being taking away from the task at hand. Its like putting a rape vitem with the person who raped them and tell them to get over the rape we got a war to fight. Wouldn’t work out. But I wouldn’t. Think someone who spends their time worning about how to piss people off to know anything about what its like to be at war. Why don’t you fight a bigger cause like the cheating whores they call army wifes?

Arthur P. in Toledo, OH on September 21, 2010 at 07.48 pm

First of all Jade and Eric Z. are mindless idiots. If anyone of you 99% of posters that have never been in the military think that it is not abnormal and disgusting, let alone illegal, for a man to stick his penis into another man’s rectum for sexual satisifaction you are just plain SICK and TOTALLY WARPED IN THE HEAD. There is no privacy in the military. So go ahead Gaga. Get them to have an all gay military as you would hatefully throw out all of the normal soldiers and see how long your career lasts. Because our military will crumble if only gays were allowed and our nation will follow. It will also crumble if gays are allowed to enlist openly. It will implode, and our nation will follow. You write or perform a few songs that some people like and these idiots think your entitled to a meeting with the Chief of Staff?  Give me a break. Being gay is not natural, it is not something that should be protected by any kind of American Rights let alone be tolerated in any way in any public area or platform. GAY MEN ARE ABNORMAL AND SHOULD NOT BE PROTECTED BY ANY GOVERNMENT. ALL OF YOU THAT SUPPORT THE REPEAL OF DADT AND SUPPORT GAGA IN HER CRUSADE DISGUST ME.

I am a fan of lady gaga, I have seen so much cruelty against the gay community and I’m shocked there is such a law. The moment I herd about DADT I immediately took action and will continue to stand up to what I believe is an unconstitutional and discriminative law and support everyone who is.

Thank you lady gaga for raising awareness on such a serious cause.

We will always love you.

Sascha on September 21, 2010 at 04.26 pm

Sorry, Lady gaga. I cannot support your action as I think that you talk about an organization (military) you don’t know and I would recommend that you focus on music and entertainment. A military organization is build on certain pillars and principles which are much different from the values or circumstances in your business. There are other things like the human rights situation in the Middle East or the rain forest protection which requires your support.

Lady Gaga, my respect for you is unending.  I applaud your efforts to right this wrong.  It’s hard to imagine Senators voting for the right to discriminate and to force servicemen to lie about who they are in order to protect and give their lives for us.

Lady Gaga was amazing before…now she is easily my number one idol. I am so happy to see her doing this. Gays and Lesbians should be treated just as any other person in this world. They should be able to serve this country just as everyone should. I support the removal of “don’t ask, don’t tell”. Thank you, Lady Gaga…Thank you for taking action!

Rebecca in Washington, DC on September 21, 2010 at 03.22 pm

Don’t be discouraged with today’s outcome. Truth will win. Lady Gaga brought authentic Christian values to the world stage: faith in action. One emblem does not apply to everyone in “your parents” generation”: very many of us not only believe DADT is unjust, we believe in full human rights for all, in or out of military and in all situations! DADT is unconstitutional and violates basic human rights.

hugstogagaloo in Ohio on September 21, 2010 at 03.20 pm

Don’t be sad, Gaga. We’ll continue to fight against the gridlock of our political system and get DADT repealed. All the names of those senators not supporting the repeal should be published on as many websites as possible so that the voting public can vote accordingly in the coming elections! Thanks for your effort and keep up the good work and fantastic music!

It is easy for are armed forces to be fighting for this nation. When you swear under oath that you will do what ever it will take] to protect this nations freedom, you do not think twice to about it. I am not against gay people in the military but I am one person vs hundreds that are. You have to think that there are people that are in the military that do not want gay people or think they are serving with people that are gay. So that is why the current policy works. If you are not in military then you will never under stand. But I want to know if this thing passes, I want to see lady gaga perform on a USO tour in Iraq or Afghanistan. I think she is a great artist and want her to back what she is stands for. Dont support one part of the military support all of it.

Jamie in Goose Creek, SC on September 21, 2010 at 02.40 pm

Lady Gaga, I am a 26 year veteran of military service and have been a long time lady gaga supporter, but Stef you are off the mark on your target. You need to understand that this law is a Congressional law. You are demonizing the men and women in uniform who are not the law makers. I think you would be smart to do your homework better, offer an apology to the soldiers you have naively insulted and instead focus in the lawmakers. Thank you for your consideration.

American Knight on September 21, 2010 at 12.36 pm

Well, that’s it for me, you f#cking celebrities have finally pushed me to far, this skank of a whore has never ever put on a uniform and never will, the vast vast majority of people protesting DADT have never served in the Military and never will. Do you people know what it is like to serve on a ship where everything is crowded and cramped and then it gets even more crowed and cramp because now the Navy has to segregate people even further. The Navy now has to segregate restrooms (Heads) berthing spaces for women onboard ship and now this is going to make it even worse by having to make berthing for people labeled “Other” because they will not be allowed to shower or sleep in the same quarters as the people they are attracted to and if you don’t think something is going to happen just look at how many pregnancies have happened onboard ships since women have been allowed on our Naval Vessels. This is what happens when you put people who are attracted to others, Military cohesion is corrupted, the unit is degraded and don’t have to tell you what else is going to happen if people come out in the open onboard ships.

Donald Raines in Portland, Ohio  on September 21, 2010 at 12.35 pm

Lady Gaga,
Thank you for using your voice!!! Many other Celebrities would be too fearful of the neo-conservatives and networks to stand up like you have. Please check out my message to Congress and all members of government on http://WWW.DONALDRAINES.COM !!!! It is to the point and stern. I also blog about celebrities and other world affairs…. Follow me on

R & K in Charotte, NC on September 21, 2010 at 12.27 pm

Thank you Lady Gaga.  Awesome concert in Charlotte Sat 9/18.  I’m forever a Little Monster Fan.  My partner and I both loved it and what you stand for “EQUALITY” in America.  We both just called our 2 senators who seem to be on the list of senators who are on the fence with Repeal DADT.  We both informed them we expect them to vote to Repeal DADT.  Thank you for being OUR VOICE.  Had it not been for you many of us would not know about the vote or how to go about informing our senators.  You are so right.  No matter Gay, Straight, Bi, whatever your sexual orientation.  If a soldier no matter sexual orientation is willing to put their OWN LIFE on the line for ALL AMERICANS, then who gives a crap about their sexual orientation.  American Soldiers go to other contries to stop forms of hatred and unequality, so why do we harbor that hatred within our Soldiers? Maybe we should create a law that if a Gay Soldier is sent home then we send a senator who didn’t Repeal DADT in their place.  Let’s see if those senators are willing to die for our country.  Let McCain be the first to go since he seems to have more experience, and so on each time a Gay Soldier is sent home.  I just don’t understand why a persons sexual orientation has anything to do with protecting us.  My partner is in the Rescue Squad as a volunteer and saves lives every day and has a full time job, as well as on a Search and Rescue Team if someone is lost or missing.  Honestly when someone is near death the first thing they don’t say is “are you gay”.  If they can speak, the first thng is “save me, help me, or thank you”.  We as a Gay Couple have to hide our sexual orientation either due to employment, volunteer work, or the neighborhood due to the hatred so many have.  So every day our constitutional rights are taken away as we don’t have the “Freedom” to be who we really are.  Unfortunately we can only be our true self in our home or vehicle.  I wonder how straight people would feel if that’s how they had to live every single day….

Andrew in Arizona on September 21, 2010 at 11.55 am

Hello Lady Gaga.

Thank you for supporting equal rights for gay people such as myself and I hope that someday soon, the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ law will be repealed for good.

The current military still doesn’t seem to get that it’s rather backwards to keep such a law and that really, it makes no difference, because whether they like it or not, gay people are all around them, military and otherwise.

If their issue is sharing showers and personal space with us, um, hate to break it to them but they kinda already are…they just don’t ever know it. raspberry And honestly, what does it matter if your unit-mates are gay? All that matters is that you are fighting together to defend the country and its allies, right?

And I agree with you: If they aren’t grown-up enough to deal with having gay comrades, then they need to go home! This is the year 2010, the times of intolerance and hate are supposed to be long gone…

Good luck and health to you and keep on doing what you do!

Lewis in Afghanistan on September 21, 2010 at 11.50 am

Question for Lady Gaga.  Will you join the military service?  YES or NO??  If no then keep you nose out of the military and let us keep doing what we are doing.  I don’t think you would last a week in combat.

Today i read comments on this site an realizing one thing we all have great intentions ,an for my gay community i say standing for our rights is a fight we do everyday .I do agree with some issues presented ,but bottom line we are still solid human beings that are as passionate in our beliefs as the straight ones .So to this great stand i support you laldy gaga MARCH ON !!!!!

sarah in UK on September 21, 2010 at 10.21 am

people should’t be horrible to people because their sexuality

Greg on September 21, 2010 at 10.05 am

So, as an active duty combat medic, I can tell you I don’t give a damn whether someone is straight or not. It does not affect my sexuality one bit, and doesn’t make them less of a soldier. However, before you stand on a podium and tell us what your policy is, put on the fucking uniform and get shot at. Serve your time before you tell us how to make laws. In fact, most of the people here commenting probably haven’t served. Again, most of us serving really don’t care what your sexuality is, but let them speak. Stop finding some little niche you think you can fit into for more publicity, and let those of us who have paid for that freedom cast our fucking votes. If you don’t like it, vote otherwise. If your votes are outnumbered by someone else’s votes, sorry, that’s a democratic republic at work. And really, if you don’t like living in this country so much, fuckin leave. That simple. Canada will welcome you with open arms, as will Mexico.

Jerry on September 21, 2010 at 09.09 am

I served in the military for 28 years.  I agree Don’t Ask Don’t Tell needs to be repealed.  DADT was established so Bill Clinton could save face in the gay and lesbian community for failiing to be able to live up to his promise he would allow gays and lesbians in the military.  So repeal DADT and go back to the standard that if you gay you are not allowed in the military period.  Stay the hell home cause this old soldier, like 99 percent of all soldiers, don’t want gays and lesbians in the military.  My question to Lady CooCoo, whose music and character I think sucks, is what would she or any other celebrity who has not served a single day in the military know about about the problems it causes?  Thank God there are have a few General Officers who aren’t affraid to tell Obama to shove his gay and lesbian military agenda up his wazzu.

Don Woods on September 21, 2010 at 09.07 am

Lady Gaga.  Thank you so much for your awesome support in all of this!  I called Senator Johans today in Nebraska.  He was in a meeting, but his secretary told me that she would leave him a message.  I just pray that message really gets to him and that they vote in our favor!

Alexei in Illinois on September 21, 2010 at 08.37 am

As a service member I fully support Lady Gaga and I am confident that there are no homophobic cadets in my detachment. The LGBT in the military deserve the same rights and benefits as the rest of us!

Bob in Kansas City on September 21, 2010 at 07.33 am

I thought this was a law to protect? Since when should sexuality matter? I dont care what or who you be with or sleep with,  keep it to yourself which i think is the idea?? Not against anyone being who they are, quit making a big deal out of it and it probably wont be a big deal. Get a job and live your life without asking for special attention, especially from a government that will find some way to tax you for it. As to Lady Gaga, she is hot! You go girl! LOL.

Ramon Santana Caetano in Brasil on September 21, 2010 at 06.58 am

I fully support you Lady GAGA, there’s no place for hate in this world…and as a South African, I believe in the fellowship of mutual understanding,tolerance and mutual respect for all individuals.

We cannot allow Homophobia to succeed in SOCIETY….THERE’S NO PLACE FOR HATE.

Rick A. Edwards in Columbus, Ohio on September 21, 2010 at 03.31 am

Why I am Gaga over Lady Gaga!!!! Everything is political. Thank You Lady Gaga for using your celebrity status to fight the good fight, and having your voice heard. I thought your reference to Matthew Shepard tradegy was very appropriate and similiar to the fate of some soldiers who have lost their lives in the same manner while trying to serve our country. The Matthew Sheperd story is a very sad memory for me. May you have a long and prosperous career in the entertainment industry, and may you continue the good fight for all your little monsters. Sincerely, One of your Monsters.

Gaga, I posted a note to John McCain’s facebook. It read: “Senator McCain, please vote accordiingly with Senators Levin and Reid in repealling the DADT law.  The future generations do not want to oppress citizens, especially those willing to serve our fantastic country founded on equality and acceptance.  We want to give all military service members equal opportunities to serve and protect our nation if they so choose and their sexual orientation plays no role in their desire or ability to do this admirable job to the same standard as other American military personnel.” I will try to call his office tomorrow to further express my concern. Thank you for encouraging people to get involved with causes. I am only 18 and I’ve been very confused with all the voting and trying to figure out which politicians really believe in the same things as me and I am so grateful to have someone I admire so much as you to help guide me and show me how to use my voice!

“Not everyone is a 17 year girl thats in love with her music….”

I’d like to respond to the person who sent the above post.

You’re right.  Not everyone is a 17-year-old girl who’s in love with her music.  I am a 65-year-old who enjoys her music and admires her wisdom and courage.

Modern politics in this technologically sophisticated, overwhelmingly computerized and media-addicted society has come down to a war between the haves and the have-nots, and the haves have bought themselves the means to declare war on the rest of us.  As a result of this and the disparity between the educated and the uneducated our democracy is confused with capitalism.  As I see it, the Republicans largely represent the haves and they use their full arsenal of power and wealth to buy the means and the media time to feed the greed of the haves and to totally confuse and manipulate the have-nots.  Since our society is now hooked on television and the world wide web for information, the haves have figured out that if a lie is repeated often enough,
people will eventually confuse it with the truth.  It’s really bad, old-fashioned prisoner-of-war tactics, like water-torture.

And by the way, Comcast, et al, charges us an arm and a leg to become these prisoners-of-war!!  How sick is that??

In the face of this well-financed assault on our political process by those who have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo, the actual issues and the truth about what’s really at stake doesn’t get much air time - EXCEPT when someone that the haves think was bought and paid for, like celebrities, decide to exercise their actual freedom and use their platform on behalf of issues important to the disenfranchised and the have-nots!!
Despite the sour grapes of those who disagree with their politics
and threaten to withhold payment for the celebrity’s particular product, these celebrity citizens not only have retained the same right to speak out as you or I, but have a very honorable history of taking on the causes of those in need.

Hurray for lady Gaga!  Paws up everybody!!

Is it useful to email senators as well via facebook, myspace, or comment pages on their websites?

Mahvrick S. De Leon in Ugong Pasig City, Philippines  on September 21, 2010 at 01.32 am

Thank you Lady Gaga. for taking action for those who are strength-less to do such action like that.

In the Philippines, I don’t know if it’s happening, but i assure you that if it is happening in our country, I’m with you.

Thank You very much Gaga, Philippines really love you.

En entendant Lady Gaga faire son discours sur la défense des homosexuels, (ou pour que ces derniers ne soient pas discriminés dans l’armée), j’ai aperçu en elle les nobles talents de sénatrice. Cette énigmatique et profondément humaine femme devrait se faire l’ambassadrice de l’idée d’une planète sans guerre. Là, où il y a des atrocités, l’on devrait cibler et encourager des leaders sains, (ex.: le médecin afghan Abdullah Abdullah), parce que le peuple s’y identifierait. Cela est de loin préférable à ce qui se passe actuellement; vos soldats qui s’amusent à tuer des civils… N’attendez qu’ils deviennent aussi des cannibales avant de rectifier le tir. Vos adversaires d’Al-Qaida doivent ne pas tenir en place. Et une personnalité rafraîchissante comme Lady Gaga, pourrait changer la donne, (parce que les gens n’ont plus confiance aux militaires ni aux politiciens). Il faut de la conscience, c’est à dire une capacité à sortir des cadres stériles de l’habitudes, de la tradition…
Et Lady Gaga a prouvé à travers son art,
l’étendue de son génie.

If she’s going to dabble in politcis, than she has to be prepared to turn off alot of people.

Not everyone is a 17 year girl thats in love with her music….

Alex M. in Brasil on September 21, 2010 at 12.21 am

EXISTEM PESSOAS QIE TANTAM FAZER ALGO PARA MUDAR O PAÍS, que não ficam parada olhando a vida pela TV, que correm atráz do que querem e não tem medo o que dirão, que enfrentam o preconseito de uma sociedade, que enfrendo e ultrapassam barrairas, para seguir seu caminho, pessoas como Gaga, tentam mudar, e eu e você poderemos também mudar, e só querer, e fazer acontecer. Stefanni Joane, é a penas uma cidadã que tenta lutar pelo que acredita.

Jovi in Salinas Ca on September 20, 2010 at 11.44 pm

i totally agree 100% with gaga just because homosexuals choose to love someone of the same sex doesn’t mean that we have the right to strip them of there rights in fact being gay is a personal liberty and the government shouldn’t have to interfere with it at all and im saying this on behalf of my best friend because he is gay. i met him in church and he believes in god and he knows that if god can forgive a murderer and if he can forgive a thief and if he can forgive a wife for cheating on her husband then why cant he forgive him for loving somebody of the same sex? i love my friend he stopped going to church because he felt that he doesnt belong anymore.

Eric in Orlando on September 20, 2010 at 10.43 pm

I am not homosexual, but I have no problem with Gay or Lesbian service members. But I’m afraid there is misinformation out there that needs to be corrected. Its not the Sexual harassment policy of “Don’t ask Don’t tell” thats needs to be fixed its the source in United States Code Title 10 which states. “United States Code Title 10 addresses homosexuality in the armed services. The code recognizes that one of the most critical elements in combat capability is unit cohesion. The code affirms that the armed forces must maintain personnel policies that exclude persons who would create an unacceptable risk to unit cohesion. Title 10 recognizes that military life is fundamentally different from civilian life and concludes that the presence of individuals in the armed forces who engage in homosexual acts creates an unacceptable risk to unit cohesion and standards of morale, good order and discipline. Don’t ask Don’t tell is a policy that doesn’t need congressional repeal. the Title 10 is the fix….. Oh and to those that want to serve do so with dignity and respect for the traditions of the military. Don’t deface what I’ve bleed for.

Soldier (PoliSci MA) in Afghanistan on September 20, 2010 at 10.28 pm

I hate celebrities in politics.  She doesn’t know shit about the government.  I doubt she even knows what a ballot is.  She’s a 24 yr old pop star throwing a temper tantrum. 

Hey idiots out there! You know this is getting repealed anyways!  And none of the people that worked so hard to get this done will get any credit because once the slow moving government system comes around (and it will in a little time) she will have 100% of the credit.  Why? Because she’s a celebrity.  If I was a homosexual interested in joining the armed forces she is the LAST person I’d want fighting for me.  Seriously.. 

Why is she so interested in this, really? There are a hundred other things she could help to make the world better.  Genocide in Africa.  The war in Afghanistan/Iraq.  Poor education in America (although I think improving education would hurt her album sales.

I think the only reason she’s interested in this is for MORE attention.  And this is what’s going to happen: It will get repealed (without her help).  She will receive 100% credit for the hard work of others.  Then she’ll move on to some other cause she doesn’t know shit about and doesn’t affect her one iota. 

I hope at some point the USG makes a rule that celebs will have their 1st ammendment rights revoked on the account that they’re wealthy idiots and don’t know shit about anything past their big houses and snob parties. 

Good luck.

Lady GaGa I Love you

David in 07022 on September 20, 2010 at 09.28 pm

I called just now and am very proud for doing so. Although I am not gay, I feel that it is a right for everybody to have equal rights and to PROTECT this nation.

Best wishes to Lady Gaga and those brave individuals that are fighting for equality. You are an inspiration to me.

John E. DePierre III in PA on September 20, 2010 at 09.15 pm

If everything is about equality in the military than I will join your cause if you support mine.  One physical training standard for all.  If I have to run 2 miles in under 16 minutes then so does a 26 year old women.  Do 48 Push ups and 52 sit ups.

Ooh Rah, Gaga. Hope is a wonderful feeling.

Kimberly in Alfred, ME on September 20, 2010 at 08.18 pm

I just want to thank you Lady Gaga for shedding light on this matter. I previously had been under the impression that DADT was designed to protect gay and lesbian soldiers from ridicule and abuse and was in complete support of that. As it turns out, I was misinformed to say the least. Thank you for using your influence to spread the word and make our nation aware of this horrible injustice.

Stephanie Gagne in PA on September 20, 2010 at 07.54 pm

I am only 12 and I called and left a voicemail<3 I believe in total equality even if I am straight. I am getting my friends to call and right now, my senator’s voicemail is full!! Gaga thank you for introducing me to this. I love that you support things others are afraid to support. I love u Mommy. If you see this follow me on twitter: @StephBieber13 Thank you<3
