Gather 'Round, T!nK Could Use A Favor

Most of you know my bloggy "son", T!nK (Nathanael), from This Is How It Feels: A Survivor's Guide.  And most of you know that he was honorably discharged from the Army because he's gay.  He had to fight like a tiger to get his honorable discharge; it's actually a dishonorable discharge offense.  Can you believe that happy crappy?

Anygovernmentbullshit, T!nK has applied to be a cast member on a documentary called Out in America, about what it's like to be GLBT in America.  I think he's got an incredible story to be told, and his is just one of many.  One of the factors involved in being cast is open voting.  To vote, click here and find Nathanael (hint: he's the one stuffing his face with Ramen).  Currently, due to the number of votes he has, he's on the first page.

That happened to my sister, too...and her fiancee. It's a shameful way to treat a veteran, and the people perpetrating that BS should be strung up and shot with flaming arrows. (LOL I think about this alot, can ya' tell?) I will absolutely go on and give sweet T!nk my vote!! Thanks for bringing it to the limelight! =)

I voted! Good for him for him getting an honorable discharge. But, it's shameful he should've had to get one at all.

Thanks for voting for T!nK. His numbers doubled overnight.

I think it's shameful that we're so "progessive" here in the US, but our military is made up of a bunch of homophobes.

You can vote once a day, so keep voting, please.

Totally going to vote! I think it'd be great for him to be on there.

And as for the discharge business? The government powers that be can SUCK IT!
