Lady Gaga Says She is Disappointed by "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Decision

Gay rights crusader and meat couturier Lady Gaga has responded to Tuesday's news that the bid to end the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was defeated by the Senate. Gaga has vociferously worked to bring an end to "DA,DT" in recent weeks and released the following statement online: "Today was an enormous disappointment, for myself, and for many young American people. Not only because Don't Ask Don't Tell was not repealed by our Senators, but moreover because legislative procedure is being abused to stop public business, public debates, from happening while America is watching. There was a debate today, we just didn't get to watch it. Instead, it has been customary now for antiquated procedures and partisan politics to take precedence over debate, America's needs, and today, sadly, over the needs of U.S. troops. I will keep fighting, I will not give up. I am passionate about the rights of the LGBT Community and SLDN and I will continue to activate as many young people as I can, and encourage them to get politically involved in their future."
I pose this question to all of our LGBT readers: What do you think of Gaga's efforts to help repeal the "DA, DT" policy?
