QED

h/t WRSA


What we warned you about a year ago, and many times prior, has come to pass:

"Like academe and the mainstream media, the American military bows before the altar of political correctness, offering up sacrifices of its very being and purpose in order to satisfy this jealous god. The indoctrination into the sacred rites begins early in a Marine’s career. For me, it started at The Basic School (TBS), the 6-month initial training for newly commissioned Marine Lieutenants. Throughout the course, the new officers attend a variety of social mixers with senior Captains and Majors in different occupational fields in order to discern which job they wish to be selected for at the end of the training. 
The staff of TBS and the Infantry Officer Course (IOC) set aside one of these mixers for women and minorities only, so they could plead with these groups to join the combat arms—artillery, infantry, and tanks. While the staff fêted the “oppressed,” the white males returned to barracks to clean. 
After the mixer, the Commanding Officer of IOC made an appeal to our class as a whole to join the infantry, while reiterating the need for women and non-whites as platoon commanders for the grunts. In his words, “Without diverse leadership that looks like America, future marines would not respect their officers.” 
This kind of favoritism for “marginalized peoples” was manifest throughout my entire instruction. The treatment of women was especially egregious. Female Marines rarely carried squad or platoon gear such as radios, machine guns, or batteries. They were more likely to fall out of hikes. Their injury rate was higher overall."
RTWT.

This entire outrageous read is the tip of the iceberg of the rot in the military.
Strident beneficiary Lori keeps trying to square that circle in Comments, but the reality is that troops don't respect anyone, enlisted or officer, who can't cut it.

Women can't.
Ever.
Period.

And this nonsense is going to cost us a squad, a platoon, a battalion, a battle, a campaign, and a war. Then a nation. A society. A culture. 
All for the want of a horseshoe nail.

The shrieking about drafting women into combat is nonsensical.
Since Congress has decreed the combat arms open to them, of course they must register for a draft, and be drafted, and get maimed and die in combat.

Anything less, besides being a hypocritical sexist double standard, also admits the realities of biology:
They can't cut it in combat, they shouldn't be there, and at that point, why have them in the military (especially one shrunken to a fraction of WWII wartime strength) at all?

And if the Sisterhood admits those realities, the game is over: there are once again just two sexes, they differ in fundamental ways, and there's no place trying to shoehorn under-qualified women into positions that will get themselves, and the men around them, killed for trying to pull their weight and save their bacon.

Admit that, and the whole feminazi agenda goes under.

And PC and the Sisterhood cannot be having any of that, so in a choice between truth and fantasy, they'll take fairytales, like:
                                           Women = men.

The Gods Of The Copybook Headings are going to cull a fearsome price from us for embracing insanity.

They always do.

And a blast from the past (banned by YT, but mirrored):

Certainly I agree. I'd expect that if it had been young women dragged through the streets of Mogadishu on CNN we might have had a dose of reality. As it is, when combat actually hits, it will be the sergeants that pull the platoon through while the female LT melts down, and the chain of command disintegrates.

We certainly have been fortunate to not have faced a war of survival in our lifetimes - sadly, the timing is due for just such a conflict. Hopefully we see reality soon enough. But? Tough times breed hard men.

I see hard men arriving soon.

I hope they are ours.

I've worked with quite a few women in the construction trades over the years. Nice gals, but severely limited in the physical department. And they would actually refuse to do certain things, such as work at heights or carry 1" thick sheets of plywood. We usually let it go, because "womenz", but if you were to transplant that same scenario into a combat situation, they're basically going to be dead weight, and that takes others out of the equation too.

I hope we have a womens battalion experience the disaster that will be their first engagement soon, in the hope it will make them pause and reevaluate why they're trying to be men. Unfortunately, I don't believe that will happen.

The upside of this if there is such a thing is that if things go ACW 2 Electric Bugaloo , the loyalist faction of cored out US military will at least start out less effective and reliable.

This should strengthen the rebel cause more than a little. It also comes with some stupid risks in that the pozzed units might be ignorant enough to obey orders to use WMD's on US soil which would have disastrous results for all.

That said there really aren't any large scale wars for us to get into, a war with Russia would result in our nuclear annihilation if we appear to be winning, China is a major trade partner and no one else wants to play.


China might prove to be a naval problem but we aren't going to fight them. In any case we couldn't win and couldn't afford it anyway.

Now doubt Venezuela is on the list but even our current military could handle that.

Longer term our society apparently isn't functioning at a high enough level politically scientifically or culturally to replace the tritium we need for triggers

https://www.defensenews.com/opinion/commentary/2017/03/06/commentary-the-looming-crisis-for-us-tritium-production/

from the article

By the early 2030s, the viability of the entire U.S. nuclear deterrent is at risk from an inability to produce tritium for nuclear warheads.

If true this should be right around the time the US enters its civil war phase if that occurs as well

This may well knock the US off the lists of nuclear powers probably for good and very possibly world powers as well. Hopefully China won't decide to preemptively sanitize CONUS to ensure hegemony. Most likely they'll just flood us with weapons and let is kill ourselves off.

You'll get your hard men, probably warlords galore and I don't know 11 or more different nations.

Genesis 1:27 "....male and female He created them." Why create "male and female" if they are the same/equal? Just create one being that has both reproductive parts and you really could be same/equal and choose your gender. Doesn't work that way. Sorry, feminists. You royally screwed up society for everyone.

Lord of the Fleas said...

"All societies are based on rules to protect pregnant women and young children. All else is surplusage, excrescence, adornment, luxury, or folly which can - and must - be dumped in emergency to preserve this prime function. As racial survival is the only universal morality, no other basic is possible. Attempts to formulate a "perfect society" on any foundation other than "Women and children first!" is not only witless, it is automatically genocidal. Nevertheless, starry-eyed idealists (all of them male) have tried endlessly - and no doubt will keep trying."

"Men are expendable; women and children are not. A tribe or a nation can lose a high percentage of its men and still pick up the pieces and go on, as long as the women and children are saved. But if you fail to save the women and children, you’ve had it, you’re done, you’re THROUGH! You join Tyrannosaurus rex, one more breed that bilged its final test."

Two quotes from Robert A Heinlein, who nailed it years ago (other than the "all of them male" bit).

And it all boils down to biology. XX and XY. As RAH said, if you lose 90% of your men but save all the women (and their wombs), then a population can recover. Lose 90% of the baby factories, and you're a footnote in someone else's history books.

Ideology ain't got nuttin' to do with it.

In April 1975, in Norfolk, Va., our DE deployed for 6 month Med Cruise. The tug assisting us away from the pier had one female sailor in the deck crew as a trial. 6 months later, October 1975, when returning from the Med, the same tug now had 5 females in the deck crew. One evening in February of 1976 I was in Bethesda NNMC with staph pneumonia. An evening news segment had a reporter interviewing those same 5 female sailors. They all were requesting reassignment due to the work being too strenuous. I never did hear the outcome of their request, but I learned then that females shouldn't be allowed in any military job requiring strength.

And yet...when the CO of 4th RTB at Parris Island rightfully insisted that her WM's should at least shoot to male standards she was sabotaged by a bunch of her Lts (SJWs all) and relieved. IIRC her name was LtCol Germano. Shooting is one of the few skills where women should be able to compete and even then, the favored must be favored.
"Marine Corps standards" my ass.

It will take another catastrophe to extirpate leftism after it destroys the Republic, hence our resignation to the inevitability of a CWII.


The Brookings Institution (Goodthink Tank) isn't helping with this shit:

1979 in the 82nd ABN we dropped in to Ft. Campbell. The drop was screwed up and while humping my weapon and gear out of the drop zone with my RTO (we both were carrying PRC-77s) we came across a female Lt. She had jumped with some other unit, I think it was some admin group. She was sitting on a pallet to which a gamma goat (a six wheeled vehicle articulated in the center) which had landed on its side was lying next to scattered cases of 105mm howitzer ammo.

She had one of those thousand yard stares so we checked on her. She was OK but traumatized by the whole experience on the plane, jumping and things being screwed up on the drop zone. She was alone so we offered to take her with us off the drop zone and get her some help. She was mostly non-responsive and detached. A couple of medics from the 101st were driving through the soybean field we used as a drop zone so we asked them to help her.

The takeaway I think is that beyond the issue of physical strength there is also an unquantifiable factor that leads to female failure even under the stress of intense peacetime training regimens. Fortunately this was peacetime, I never had the experience of war but that is even worse. The Vietnam vets in the Army then were harsh because of their experiences, I don't know what they would say now.

From my experience in IT life ending twenty years ago, women can't lead. They're just different and have no idea how to interact with men.

1 Timothy 2:
8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

The rather obvious conclusion is that women do not belong in combat arms units and the restriction should be immediately reinstated - to include naval combatant ships.
I'm not an aviator so won't presume to make statements about whether or not fighter and attack aircraft should be restricted as well.

Like I said, all female units so men do not suffer a fool.

They are going to be worse than dead weight Brother.. They are going to be the cause every time of a unit being overran by the enemy without fail...

You ready to do a f2f yet???

Exactly right Brother Amen...To many men have let their authority from God slip away...

lineman said...

Most females will lock up under extreme pressure because they think with their emotions instead of logic and fact...

Crew said...

They're just different and have no idea how to interact with men.

Oh, they know how to interact with men, however, their genetic programming for interacting with men is not appropriate for the work force or the battlefield.

Very well said...

Dad29 said...

The Project here--as you indicated correctly--is to erase any differences between men and women, no matter what your lying eyes tell you.

There's a reason for that: erasing the created reality erases the Creator, too. Put another way: if there is no Nature, there cannot be a "Nature's God."

Yes, it is theological; without Nature's God, the State becomes god. Understand now why this is such a crusade (pun intended) for these jackals?

I think that it is important to underscore the fact that allowing women into the military in any fighting role is bad for two reasons.

It is wrong because it is evil, and it is wrong because it is not pragmatic.

Even if it were pragmatic, it would still be wrong.

If it comes to cases, I fully expect that female leaders who fail in the field will quickly be left on the side of the road to fend for themselves while the males carry on with the mission. There's no room for dead weight in a combat zone.

I have 5 brothers, 3 are MDs; we were trained in short range target (50 yards)shooting by my father (an MD himself), in .22LR, 9MM, .38 Special, .45 cal., & 12 G. My sisters, 3 MDs in their own right were willful participants in this practice, when we were growing up, all activities as a family. Nowadays, the men in the family still practice, clean and oil the equipment, inventory hardware and supplies, and promote 2nd Amendment rights.

SiGraybeard said...

But wait, Congress critter Ilhan Omar (D - Minnesotastan) said it's a myth that biological men were better at powerlifting than women and that a biological man "transitioning" to female has no advantage. Seriously. She wants to penalize USA Powerlifting for acknowledging the observed truth.

This is stunning. It's not like we don't have years upon years of history in weight lifting. Even broken into weight classes, so we don't compare smaller women to bigger men, the men's records are always heavier than the women's records.

"We need to have diversity because women have the same abilities as men"
"If they have the same abilities, why do we need diversity"
"Because they're better and deserve their chances"
"But you just said they're the same"

The Left is both insane and evil. Their basic philosophy is the denial of reality. Their goal is the destruction of humanity, specifically Western Civilization, formerly known as Christendom.

Nope. Time does not allow. We'll manage it sooner or later though.

The next step in their " Equality " agenda is getting us to accept the inherit sexiness of our 7 year old child and realize that your child should have the right to a fulfilling sexual life with caring older men such as Epstein and Slick Willy . Don't think they will poke many babies around these hills . Damn pigs will eat anything . Omnivore it is called .

I have a friend who was a navy swimmer during the first gulf war. He was telling me of the cruise, they had several women onboard. All of them came home from the cruise, knocked up.

This has been coming for at least 25 years. Back in my days in the Corps women got no hard duty even in garrison. Working party? Go cry to Top.. and magically a male Marine was filling sand bags on the range. Thousand other examples.
To some extent, we man have ourselves to blame. To wit, the construction worker.. b/c womenz. I call BS! Make em pull their weight or realize they can't hack and shove off. We men need to give them all the equality they can handle. No more open doors, no more helping move heavy things, no more diagnosing the funny sounds coming from some machine. In short - no chivalry as they have clearly asked for over and over. Give it to em good and hard and let them fail and maybe even make it hurt.
Now, this does not go for those few we know who appreciate gentlemen. I do also suspend this for women of a certain age that I don't know personally who are most likely to appreciate gentlemanly behavior. But woe to any 50 something and younger woman. You'll get your damned door and move your own heavy stuff. When they complain I remind them they are equal AND engaging in misandry.
