Changing the “Macho” Male Culture of the US Military

Post by Baja boy » Sat Oct 31, 2015 4:29 pm

"This means that the Ranger School “experiment” was an experiment in name only. It was guaranteed from the beginning to graduate a woman and that graduation would be used as proof that the combat exclusion rule needed to go. This, of course, matches what every Army Command Sergeant Major (9) in 2011-2013 told me was said to them by high-level CSMs and General Officers while attending their pre-command courses: “women will be in combat arms and women will graduate Ranger School, if any of you has a problem with that, you need to get out of the military.” They reported that the Ranger Instructors at Ranger School were told the same thing."

This comes as a surprise how? In this culture of gender confusion?

Yes. A vagina with a gun is clear sign of barbarians at the gates.

You just reminded me of an old South Park episode.

The military has a ton more problem right now than the women in combat arms. A competent military could easily deal with the small percentage of woman who are both willing and able to serve indirect combat roles. Unfortunately our military's leadership can no longer be called competent.

Do a bit of research on the failed Israeli experiments with women in combat. There is a reason most of their female troops are in support areas. When your entire military is women and/or non gender specific social justice experiments, and anyone not on board with that is told to get out, well...superior technology can only take you so far. It may not be superior for much longer either, as that gap is also closing.

I wouldn't be surprised if I know the writer of that article.

I do not give two shits if a woman is in a combat arms position. I do care if she can do the job. Incidentally, I care about it the exact amount as I care if a male can do their job.

And yes, they absolutely are trying to change the culture of the military. It's become a social experiment. It's why we have all those all those special months, from African American Heritage month to LGBTWTFBBQ month. It's why "male privilege" is now part of the Navy's domestic abuse training. It's why the number of required annual training hours only increases each year for everything under the sun, for every single special-interest group that you can name.

I'm going to make a hundred copies of my DD-214 and roll around in it now.
