The three, Brig. Gen. Keith H. Kerr and Brig. Gen. Virgil A. Richard, both of the Army, and Rear Adm. Alan M. Steinman of the Coast Guard, said they were forced to lie to their fam- Uy friends and colleagues so that they could serve their country They said the 1993 "Don't Ask, Don't TeU" policy is ineffective and undermines the military's core values: truth, honor, dignity, respect and integrity, according to the Times. "I was denied the opportunity to share my life with a loved one, to have a family, to do all the things that heterosexual Americans take for granted," Admiral Steinman said. "That's the sacrifice I made to serve my country." The officers said that the Defense Department and White House had not adequately addressed the problem of harassment. "The president seems reluctant to emphasize the anti-harassment part of the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy" General Kerr said in an interview from his home in Santa Rosa, Calif. "He just doesn't feel this is a serious issue." Three former high-ranking military leaders said President Bush and the Department of Defense are doing little to stop gay harassment The three told the New York Times this week that they are gay and had to live a closeted life to serve their country. S.F. voters defeat Green candidate who left Denis over gay marriage SAN FRANCISCO — In the end to a closely watched race, Democrat Gavin Newsom defeated the Green Party's Matt Gonzalez Tuesday in the bid to become San Francisco's 42nd mayor The race garnered international media attention to see how voters would respond to the differences between the centrist Newsom and the liberal Gonzalez. While only 3 percent of the city's population are registered Greens, polls before the elections showed the candidates virtually deadlocked. Gonzalez left the Democratic Party in 2000 because he thought the party was moving away from its progressive past, including its overall opposition to gay marriage. "I decided I am not going to vote for candidates who support the death penalty or oppose gay marriage," Gonzalez wrote at the time. Newsom said during the campaign that he supports gay marriage. Ultimately Newsom captured 52.6 percent of the vote to Gonzalez's 47.4 percent, with about 11,000 votes separating the two candidates. Kan. judge questions harsher punishment in gay sodomy case TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Calling some of the state's justifications "utterly ridiculous," an appellate judge has questioned whether the state can punish illegal sex more harshly when it involves homosexual acts. Kansas Court of Appeals Judge G. Joseph Pierron presided last week over a three- judge appeals panel as it heard arguments in the case of Matthew R. Limon, whose conviction stems from sex acts in 2000 with a 14-year-old male. Limon was 18 at the time. Convicted of criminal sodomy, Limon was sentenced to 17 years and two months in prison. Had Limon engaged in sex with an underage female, he could have been sentenced to one year and three months in prison. "I'm just trying to come up with a reason, other than you don't like homosexuals," Pierron told Deputy Attorney General Jared Maag, who was representing the state. N.J. domestic partner bill could become law in 2004 TRENTON, NJ. (AP) — A Democrat-sponsored bill that would allow samesex couples to form domestic partnerships and thereby gain some of the tax and insurance benefits enjoyed by married couples could become law by early next year, according to a spokesperson for Gov. James E. McGreevey (D). The measure introduced by Senate Co-President Richard Codey (D-Essex County), would limit domestic partnerships to heterosexual couples 63 and older who could jeopardize pension benefits by remarrying, and to adult samesex couples. An earlier measure in the Assembly would have enabled any two unmarried adults living together to gain the benefits of domestic partnerships. The Assembly version drew criticism from McGreevey as too broad and expensive. Advocates for gay rights embraced the prospects of the legislation but vowed to continue court fights to form samesex marriages. Calif., Neb. lesbian couples fight for parental rights, custody SAN FRANCISCO - Two women, formerly a couple, are battling over custody of 7-year-old fraternal twins, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. At the same time, an estranged lesbian couple in Nebraska awaits a judge's decision on custody of their adoptive son, the Associated Press reported. In San Francisco, one of the women provided the eggs for conception of the children, and the other carried the girls to term, the newspaper reported. The pair raised the twins together until they broke up nearly two years ago, and courts so far have awarded the birth mother sole parental rights and custody In January, the California Court of Appeals will hear the case, the Chronicle reported. In Omaha, Neb., a two-day trial to determine whether Serenna Russell or Joan Bridgens would have custody of their 7-year-old son took place last month. Hridgens adopted the baby in 1996 while in a relationship with Russell. From staff and wire reports
