Marines Cave to Political Correctness. Remove ‘Man’ From 19 Job Titles...
Really, Marines? Of all the branches of the military we would expect to stand up to feminists and other SJWs, we would expect we could count on you. Well, that was until you changed the rules on women doing pull-ups. Or better stated, not doing pull-ups. So maybe we shouldn't be all that surprised about this news story. How soon before they change their motto to "The Many, the Un-proud: the Marines and Marinettes... unless they're trannies..."
Give it a month. Because changing words for the purposes of inclusivity is a thing in the Marines. To make sure no one's feelings get hurt...
Thousands of Marines serving throughout the infantry and in other key positions are about to get new gender-neutral job titles, but the service's top leaders are pushing to leave the word "man" in some of its most iconic occupations. In all, the Marine Corps plans to rename 19 of its military occupational specialties, or MOSs, as the result of a months-long review mandated by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus.
Basic infantry Marine.
Riverine assault craft Marine.
Light-armor vehicle Marine.
Reconnaissance Marine (to include three other recon-related jobs that include the word "man").
Infantry assault Marine.
Basic field artillery Marine.
Field artillery fire control Marine.
Field artillery sensor support Marine.
Fire support Marine.
Basic engineer, construction and equipment Marine.
Basic tank and assault amphibious vehicle Marine.
Amphibious assault vehicle Marine.
Amphibious combat vehicle Marine.
Call me problematic, patriarchal, or a ham sandwich for all I care...but if you're this sensitive over a job description? If you mouth off to your commanding officer because you get all hurty for being called an "Infantryman" when you're a chick? Girl, I've got some news for you: you're too sensitive to be a Marine. Also, learn how to pull yourself up a few times. You're embarrassing us.
BUT, and this is key here, I'm not sure who threw the first curling iron over this one. Naval Secretary Ray Mabus mandated it, but who sat in their bubble bath thinking up the next dumbest SJW cause? Was it an overly-sensitive girl-Marine, or some ninny in an office with too much free time? Methinks as with much of Social Justice causes, an itty-bitty fraction of a population threw a hissy fit, and like all other institutions, the Marine's folded. If I had to guess, many women signing up for the Marines couldn't give a free manicure over being called an "infantryman" or an "infantry marine."
I'm using this gif for purely sexist reasons.
But leave it to the loud, proud, obnoxious SJW harpies to change everything for the sake of their precious feelings. Leave it to a tiny fraction of an angry population to strap this on all the women entering the Marines. I'm betting the girl-Marines are super grateful for yet another slap about their alleged sensitivity.
Also, girl-Marines? Regardless of your opinions on changing names to be more gender neutral, you should still pull yourselves up. Be that physically or metaphorically, depending on how much trouble the SJWs are making for you.
Speaking of women in combat...
