Another Step For Full Equality From The DoD

The DoD announced that service members will be granted leave to travel to a state that supports marriage equality in order to marry their same-sex partner. The leave won’t count against the service members annual leave.

I say right on! When there is a history of discrimination, I believe that affirmative actions that go above and beyond are a reasonable way to mitigate the harm that occurred as a result of the discrimination.

When society harms an individual due to prejudice or fear, especially when that harm is directly in spite of the rule of law, society must work much harder to help the descendants of the harmed rise above the impact of the harm.
