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.
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.
