In the state of Washington, a judge ruled the ban unconstitutional and said the firing hurt morale in her unit.
Maj Margaret Witt sued after the Air Force sacked her upon learning of her relationship with a civilian woman.
President Obama and some military leaders have called for the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, but Congress this week rejected the bid.
On Friday, US District Judge Ronald Leighton became teary as he praised Maj Witt for her struggle to win back her job following her 2004 suspension and subsequent dismissal.
"There is no evidence that wounded troops care about the sexual orientation of the flight nurse or medical technician tending to their wounds," Judge Leighton ruled.
Thankfully, there's overwhelming evidence at least one District Judge is as fucking sick and fucking tired of waiting for Congress and Our Glorious Leader to pull their thumbs out of their asses as I am.
Oh, I'm sorry, make that two.
The ruling is the second this month in which a federal judge has said the "don't ask, don't tell" policy violates the US Constitution. Analysts say the twin rulings add further momentum to the growing movement to overturn the policy.
The only thing stopping it? The same thing that stops everything, pinky: upcoming elections. If politicians solved problems, what could they promise to fix during their campaigns? Good God, how could they raise funds? Who could they possibly scare the jaded, coddled, apolitical public out of their gadget-stuffed homes, off their ever-fattening asses, and into a voting booth?
That's why we'll have no tax on rich people. That's why "don't ask, don't tell" is still on the books, despite being barbarically stupid. That's why we'll have no direct federal hiring, no net neutrality, no universal health care. Nothing but greed, money grubbing, and desperation for this Empire tonight...punctuated by the occasional bit of good news, in between drone aircraft attacks and the disaster movies sprung to life. The Apocalypse might be upon us, but at least my lesbian sisters can go down fighting. For "freedom," of some kind.
