Lady Gaga is speaking at the University of Southern Maine campus right now to rally for the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.

She believes sexual orientation should be irrelevant for service members. She’s been tweeting her over six million followers to support her rally with the Service Members Legal Defense Network and she’s imploring them to contact their members of Congress to push for repeal, which Senator John McCain is adamantly opposing.

Listen, I say Go Gaga for standing up against sexual orientation discrimination. You wouldn’t ask someone to hide their religion, race, or ethnicity to serve in the military. And you wouldn’t be able to kick them out of service, if they had “hidden” their racial or religious identity. Why should men and women who want to serve their country in the most patriotic way imaginable or who have been serving their country — be forced out of service because of their sexual orientation.

Surely, this is a form of discrimination that we shouldn’t tolerate. Gaga has videotaped a thoughtful announcement on the topic and has featured heartfelt and heartbreaking video of service men and women who love America but don’t want to hide their sexual orientation any longer.

The Pentagon’s spokesperson, Col. David Lapan says “we’re not” following Gaga’s rally.

I say — why not? She’s an American, so is everyone rallying and so are her 6,000,000 followers. Doesn’t the Pentagon care what millions of Americans think?

Senator John McCain is leading the charge against the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” as a policy. But even his daughter Meghan McCain has tweeted “I am against DADT” and “I love my father very much and we disagree.”

what does it mean to say ‘it works’. it works AT WHAT, exactly? keeping the straights from bashing the gays, literally and figuratively? does that really constitute ‘working’? not by my definition. my standards are a little bit higher than that.

If a actor/singer/celebrity feels the need to get involved in political/social issues that are outside of their career field that is their right.

However, she shouldn’t complain if she becomes the next Dixie Chicks.

Lady Gaga’s opinion on political social issues means nothing to me.

While we are on the topic of Lady Gaga. She’s a manufactured artist who apparently took inspiration for her act from a singer she collaborated with early in their careers before Gaga was a singer but a songwriter. The singer committed suicide and the photos of deceased singer are earily similar to Lady Gaga’s current schtick. Also, Britney recorded one of Gaga’s famous songs first and it sounds almost exactly like Gaga’s production. I’m thinking Lady Gaga is as manufactured as JLo was.

i’m with you on all of this, and find the stuff about her colleague that committed suicide interesting. she won’t go by the way of the dixie chicks though- cuz gaga’s audience i dare to say is mostly either gay or gay-friendly, so supporting a cause such as this is as much a business venture and promotion as anything else. the dixie chicks stood up and took a position antithetical to their core audience— much more brave (or stupid, some would say). gaga’s just doing what’s good for business and what keeps her in the camera’s eye as much as possible. that said, in this particular instance, i won’t bash her b/c i like the fact that celebrities, ridiculous or not, have the ability to make traditional institutions face the popular voice. of course, i think the senate voted today not to address this issue- so it may have done no good if i am reading my cnn breaking news emails correctly.
