    ….sometimes i think what my life would be today if this kind of stuff went on when i was there age. The only thing “gay” i had was Steven from Dynasty….oh wait, there was also the tv show Soap.

    Lady Gaga is 24 (my age) and these girls are probably in their early 20’s as well. We are the first of the millenials. Think about what the next generation of gay youth is NOT going to have to endure.

    Oh MY (no) god, I freakin LOVE these girls.

    I’m ashamed to say that I hadn’t called yet but after watching this video I called my jerk of a Senator Bill Nelson right away!

    Happy to say that this brought a tear to my eye.
    After reading the dual posts on gay youth suicides yesterday, it is more than heartening to see this type of action take place from this generation. There is no discussion or moral wrangling about if it right or wrong, it is just simply recognized as being an injustice that needs to be righted.
    Bravo.

    But it’s not making a difference. The overwhelming majority of americans are opposed to don’t ask don’t tell, and want it repealed, yet this vote will likely fail. The only difference that will be made on DADT, or any other issue on gay rights is through the courts.

    Just called Senators Lieberman and Dodd and asked them to repeal DADT.

    I saw yesterday that Gaga had been tweeting with Harry Reid about DADT.

    Hopefully the fact that real action is coming out of Gaga’s activism at the VMAs and beyond will be enough to shut up the bitter queens that she’s merely exploiting our community for her own monetary gain.

    For the first time I’m not even angered by Tank’s pessimism but truly and profoundly feel pity for such a sad sack of an individual.

    I’m astounded by his ability to find fault in even the most infallible of Gaga-related posts.

    I just called my senator. I have always sent emails in but never called before but this video made me think if these people can do it so can I. I was discharged under DADT and really want this policy REPEALED!!

    This is really great.

    I really hope Gaga will do a get out the vote message/hairdo outfit in late October early November. Our turnout is pitiful,, especially in the mid-term elections and we really need to keep those anti-gay NOM supported tea-partying social conservative christianist out of office.

    If you live in areas like I do (Russ Feingold, Herb Kohl, and Tammy Baldwin are reps), be sure to thank them for their continued support of LGBT representatives. Also, if you have property or family in more conservative areas, reach out to them!

    Thanks, Little Monsters, you can change the world… thanks also to Lady Gaga for the encouragement!!! Here’s hoping that the law gets firmly struck down next week when it comes up for a vote.

    Good goin’, galz!

    Just shows a pretty girl can get a boy to do ANYTHING!

    Kidding aside, I am more inspired by youth today than I can ever remember. Thanks for steppin’ up, kids.

  13. Kerry says

    Ok, I admit it. I got a little teary seeing all those “kids” standing up for the rights of others. If they are the future of our country then I can be more optimistic. :)

    If 2 pretty girls can get a video response from their Senator, imagine everyone here and everywhere can do to get the 100 senators of all 50 states. Everyone who is able to, should film their call to their senators and post the videos on Youtube. Blanket Youtube with such videos!

    You know, it’s a step..but really these girls are so unaware and….don’t even know who there senators are! rather then make this a giggly little girls party they should have edited so they came off more informed like the latter part of the video featuring the boys calling in..it would have more of an impact, as if they really knew what they were doing and not equating it like a prank call..imo, to be taken seriously they need to sound serious. Again it’s a step and good for them, but I would not show this vid to any of my peers as they would view it in a less serious way..

  16. redball says

    @mnrocko, i can see your point but i think the girls really won on this one because they readily admitted that they were not the most politically engaged people in the world. neither am i. and for people who don’t spend all day on cnn (most americans i’d guess!), the message that you can still stand up & advocate for the right thing and have an impact to better society and make political change–that’s powerful stuff!

    they were endearing
