so alice's actions really bothered me this past episode, it started a conversation with my girl that i'm bringing on here... usually i hate tasha, but i was 100% in agreement with her, Alice was so out of line and I couldn't believe she would do that.. Do you ever think its okay to out someone? me, no i dont i think its a personal decision and only you can make it, but i'm interested to see if anyone disagrees..

I was a bit torn on that. On the one hand, I really liked Tasha and thought she had a valid viewpoint. But outing that guy was not just like outing her. That guy was publicly saying things against gay people. So I think Alice was a little bit justified. Sort of like the people who expose the anti-gay ministers that are actually gay. Someone needs to stop them from spreading their hate. But I did think Alice was stupid to do what she did because obviously it was going to bring fame to her and Tasha didn't need that. Plus, she signed an agreement at the party she went to. What if now that she broke that agreement, something slips out about who she was with?

i think the military does their fair share of bashing and no one attacks them for it. their policy basically states that homosexuals are incapable of performing the same duties and are substandard... i really disagree with alice coming out like that, i think the violation of the party will be coming up soon, at least i hope so.. i couldn't really see tasha and alice together, tasha was too straight edge for her.. she needs a lil more dana..

It should always be left up to the person to decide when to come out. What Alice did was wrong ! It's way too stressful to live a lie. Your far better off getting out of the closet. It's funny how this episode turned out because in the previous one it was all about Alice and Tasha being on the "DL". I think she should have thought about what her relationship is going through, and be a little more empathedtic to his. I think some times we get so caught up in our own views that we forget to steps back and try to view the situation through someone elses eyes. Anyways some times it's not easy to live this lifestyle because society doesn't fully understand it. So if people aren't ready to be out they shouldn't be forced. . .

I think it was just too much for Alice to be on the DL. She is all about being out, so for her to be with someone who couldn't be out, it must have been hard. Sometimes at certain points in your life, you can't be out of the closet. For example, like Tasha in the military. Or students who still live with their homophobic parents.
