  2. Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
    Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
    “I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
    “And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
    “Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
    “And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

    Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

  3. Anonymous said: How important is Donna to Dick's psyche?

    theflyingwonder:

    // Running off of how her death affected him, hugely important. It’s amazing how well those two click. They’re so comfortable with each other they can lie in each other’s arms while dating other people.

    They also say they love each other vocally, inciting Terry (Donna’s fiance at the time) to say, “Hmm, should we be jealous of these two, Kory?”

    I think Dick and Donna have similar temperaments in that they’re both perceived as “white knight” characters. Very morally grounded and supportive of their friends. Then Dick and Donna have been friends since the age of thirteen. They’re both original Titans members. 

    I could go on about them, and I’m already going to in a post for Dick’s 75th, so I won’t get too detailed here. Overall, she’s a stable part of his life and family to him. Dick was lost without her when she died. And I mean that as in it truly broke him to the point where he cut himself off from humanity and became a caricature of Bruce. He was so crushed by it, it was somehow rational to him to ‘never get close to someone again so he won’t have to experience losing them.’ I’d say the loss of Donna was the biggest hit to Dick since his parents died. So very very important.

    I always remember that Donna asked Dick to be the one to give her away at her her wedding because she couldn’t imagine asking anyone else.

    And Dick goes on record in the legendary “Who is Donna Troy” as saying that he could have fallen in love with her the first time they met, but now, years later, he knows that he DOES love her, more than if they had merely been lovers.

  8. The 2012 UK Olympic and Paralympic teams do a little routine for the “Children in Need” charity telethon 2012.

    Not sure why I’ve never seen this before, but it such FUN!

    i want to see more queer kids in childrens media i want to crush the idea that you have to be of a certain age before you’re allowed to know who you are

    Which makes me so pleased that on the UK kids series “Wizards vs Aliens”, one of the two male leads comes out as gay at the end of season 2, in a pretty terrific scene.

    Saw this amazing lady at the LSCC and she was everything she appears to be in the pictures, Storm to a “T”. (I pointed her in the direction of Art Adams who was a guest and I think she scored a definite hit there too)
