Today on the Signorile Show

General James Conway, who leads the Marines, is threatening that if "don't ask, don't tell" is repealed, he will try to offer straight marines who are "very religious" the option of having separate living quarters. As the vote on DADT comes in the Senate, is this something a right-wing Republican senator made add as an amendment? The battle over gays serving openly rages on. We'll discuss!

Disneyland has told a Muslim woman she cannot wear a headscarf to work in a restaurant and created a bonnet for her to wear. She has refused and says her freedom of religion is being trampled. We'll put the question to you.

On Salon.com, a lesbian talks about the pressure to have a baby now that so many gays and lesbians are doing so, something she never had to think about before. It's an interesting discussion, and we'll take calls on your own experiences.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - James Dickerson, author of Inside America's Concentration Camps: Two Centuries of Internment and Torture, joins us this afternoon to talk about his latest book chronicling the long road of xenophobia and racism we've seen in this country and the fear that played out.
