The military, which has always prided itself on its self-styled "Warriors" and "Manly Men" spouting their slogans, swaggering around, fist-pumping and assuring each other that women have no place in their ranks, are now going to be put through a series of pointless "retraining" exercises that will have absolutely no effect on their behavior. This is because the attitudes inside the military are a reflection of our sex-obsessed society.
I'm not blaming only the men. I like men. I LOVE men. I find them endlessly fascinating. We NEED men. Otherwise, who would take out the garbage, mow the lawn and handle all the problems of auto maintenance? Not to mention, who would kill the spiders and investigate when things go bump in the night?
No, I don't place the blame on only the men. The women are at least equally to blame for the attitudes and, according to various news reports, about 50% of the complaints have come from men.
Retraining isn't going to cut it. It's going to take some serious attitude changes and some court martials, and some time spent in jail to bring about the changes. But, I can almost guarantee that there is no taste for such drastic measures in our military.
We can expect a period of posturing, skape-goating and cries of outrage, but in 30 days, it will be over.
I hope I'm wrong.
