do ask, don't kill. interesting concept.

there's a lot of "don't ask, don't tell" coverage right now and we posted something about allanturing a little while ago that was a pro-repeal for dadt.

this, however, is the best:

taken in san francisco, this ad was thrown up over an "approved" ad. it resonates.

it's similar to the sentiment raised by people/groups during the gay marriage debates in canada--should we or shouldn't we be fighting for the right to engage in institutions that have not only historically excluded us, but are also institutions that uphold certain values and systems that we might not believe in.

of course everyone should have the right to be married, to serve openly in the military, adopt children, etc. but there are broader questions that need to be asked about changing institutions before participating in them.
