Yes folks Wars will never be quite the same again!

Believe it or not:

Wars in the past were dominated by testosterone driven males

- who were insensitive and downright brutal with gender driven conceptions of Male dominance

In the Future disagreements will be more soft focus and less male dominated in how things get resolved

No more of this outdated zero sum You Lose - I Win nonsense

Tim Collins Gulf War Hero has expostulated as to why the attempts to make the terminology 'Gender Neutral' is yet another Bad Idea that will emasculate the British Armed Forces even further

If the Brits do it how long before this thing spreads over the water

- and infests or our Defense Forces?:?

The ludicrous and dangerous morass into which obsequious and PC-addled senior officers have led the British Army is a source of real concern to every citizen of the nation.
In the face of external threats and massive budget constraints, the latest very public direction from the Army is to drop the use of "sir" – or indeed "ma’m" when answering the telephone, for fear of giving some offence to the person at the far end. This comes alongside notices not to use language like "mankind", "chaps" or "gentleman's agreement" from the Joint Equality Diversity and Inclusion unit, nicknamed the “Jedi”.

The Army has been taken over by PC dreamers who are putting lives at risk

Providing the template for equal treatment is such a bad thing, like social justice.

Gender-neutral replacements for commonly used language

Humanity or humankind instead of mankind

Unwritten agreement instead of gentleman’s agreement

Folks or friends instead of chaps

Human resources instead of manpower

Fairness or good humour instead of sportsmanship

Best person for the job instead of best man for the job

Average person instead of man in the street

Heard a good story about this kind of thing. After the Falklands conflict some officers of the garrison were passing some squaddies and they overheard said squaddies referring to the Falkland Islanders as 'Bennies'.

On enquiring from the soldiers why they were using that term the corporal among them said that they were called 'Bennies' because the soldiers observed that all the natives reminded them of the character Benny from Crossroads.

A standing order was duly circulated informing the garrison that under no circumstances were they to refer to the locals by use of the term 'Benny' or 'Bennies'.

Couple of days after that some officers realised that the squaddies were now referring to the locals as 'Stills'.

On enquiry as to why this was the case the word came back 'Well, sir, we are no longer allowed to refer to the locals as 'Bennies' but they are still Bennies.'

Well some headmasters and headmistresses do go a bit funny after twenty years of hanging in there for the 'pinshin'.

All three terms contain "man", are you sure ykir not making this up ?

Unwritten agreement instead of gentleman’s agreement
Well you can hardly have a gentlemans agreement between two women, so what do you suggest ?

Folks or friends instead of chaps
Same thing, you can't call a group of women chaps, or a mixed crowd either

Human resources instead of manpower
ERM, both contain the word man, your making stuff up again


Best person for the job instead of best man for the job
Well thats fncking obvious you tool.

Average person instead of man in the street
You have way too much time on your hands, and your not engaging your brain. You can't refer to a woman as the average man fffs

The army thing is daft though

He just had to get his daily OP out of the way before going down to the village to infuriate himself by seeing black people there.

OMG!:shock:

It looks like this thing is highly contagious....& its already reached our shores:

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Unit
The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion unit plays a key role in ensuring the promotion and mainstreaming of equality, diversity and inclusion throughout UCD
https://www.ucd.ie/equality/support/equalitydiversityandinclusionunit/

Is there an antidote?:confused:
