Make Room for the Ladies

Staff Sergeant Lady Jaye

I should have titled this blog “Make Room for the Ladies… and All Those that Identify as Ladies.”

Military.com writes that:

The First G.I. Joe Live-Action Series Features Army Staff Sgt. Lady Jaye

Amazon Prime Video continues its commitment to action series with plans for a show based on the G.I. Joe character Lady Jaye, an Airborne- and Ranger-qualified covert operations specialist. The character previously appeared in the 2013 movie “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” where she was portrayed by Adrianne Palicki.

.
Amazon just announced a new series based on former Navy SEAL Jack Carr’s James Reece novels, with the first season focused on “The Terminal List.” Amazon is also home to “Bosch,” the series about Iraq War veteran and LAPD detective Harry Bosch; “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” starring John Krasinski; and an upcoming series based on Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels.

.
If you’re confused by this announcement, you’re probably on the wrong side of the G.I. Joe generational controversy. Anyone who grew up with the 12-inch-tall action figure whose tools were based on real military gear is bound to be baffled by the universe of weirdness that came with Joe’s 3.75-inch relaunch in the 1980s.

First let me say that I’m all for it.  But, let me be devil’s advocate for a second.  Why does Lady Jaye have to be well-endowed with her top-side screaming to bust out of her blouse with the zipper top button holding on for dear life?  Isn’t this objectifying women?

We saw it with the fictitious first female Navy SEAL with “G.I. Jane.”  We saw a first with a US Navy support ship being named after gay rights advocate Harvey Milk with the USNS Harvey Milk.

When do transgenders get representation?   What if I want to buy a transgender doll for my child to play with so I can demonstrate that it is OK to identify with whatever sex they wish to?  It shouldn’t matter if there is no market for such a doll and it is a losing proposition to make and sell one, it should be about equitable representation.  Isn’t being equitable the theme?  I could make an argument that you have to generate a market to have market appeal.  What if there were kids teetering on the edge of which sex they identify as – so a transgender doll may offer up a hero and tip the scales?

Dr. Rachel Levine would most likely agree.

As a side note – let me just say to those that would point out that Dr. Levine is butt ugly whether a man or a woman, a cartoon or doll version of her would surely have a Barbie doll face complete with ample breasts screaming to bust out of their top.  Let’s not kid ourselves.

Corporal Klinger from M*A*S*H was somewhat of an entry point but he was only trying to get out of the Army on a Section 8 and wasn’t a true transgender.  Was Klinger an insult to all transgenders in its awkward stereotypical depiction?

What if I saw my son playing with a G.I. Joe/Ken doll, pull down Ken’s pants, and ask me why Ken was “all smooth down there?”  What if he asked me if he should be ashamed of his “junk?”

Why does Staff Sergeant Lady Jaye have to be white?  If we need the next generation to be ashamed of their whiteness and its inherent contribution to white supremacy, how does this help further our goals as a nation?

Who played with those small plastic green Army men?  You know, the kind that had the one kneeling and shooting but you couldn’t ever get it to stand upright unless you dug it into the dirt?  Same for the bazooka guy.  The one lying prone was much easier.  Who remembers the one ready to throw the grenade and had that picture-perfect throwing pose?

Not one woman or transgender in the entire lot.  However, they now have a woman dog handler, a dog and offer them in pink.

New plastic Army women include dog handler and Rosie the Riveter — and pink as a color option

We’ve come a long way.

There are more questions than answers, but Staff Sergeant Lady Jaye is a step in the right direction, bustiness aside.

I welcome any and all examples to support the idea that the trend is moving toward PC military heroes.

Disclaimer:  In case the sarcasm did not come through, I wish to point out that I respect women, those who identify as women, people of all races and ethnicity, list goes on – this post was poking fun at the social justice warrior equitable crowd that have infiltrated many aspects of our society with the above article pointing out their influence on modern toys and culture.  For the record – I am an advocate of busty woman or for those that aspire to be busty women.

    Not real sure of the true percentages, Steve, but going by what prime time broadcast TV shows, must be 85% of families are mixed race/gender, cause that is all the rage now. Used to be the most risque thing you may hear was June concerned that Ward was being a little rough on the Beaver. Now a days, you can just about see soft pr0n at 8pm. Always told my baby brother that his GI Joe should beat up that wussy Ken and then have his way with Barbie. Guess now, Barbie beats them both up and has them perform with one another for her.

    On a personal note, oversized mammary glands are over rated. Give me a nice, natural, perky 34B cup sized to play with. They respond, don’t sag, and don’t get in the way.

      “34B” Heh, that was my ex that ran off with a now dead biker.
      She just got off parole in Daytona so I’m upping my security.
      Never underestimate a crazy ex. But yeah, the perfect size there.

    • Only Army Mom says:

      Further proof my man-brain began at an early age…
      Barbie’s Camper was an unasked for Christmas gift. It became HQ, Ken sat, useless, in the driver’s seat and Barbie and my brother’s confiscated GI Joe fought the monsters (stuffed animals).

      God knew what he was doing when he gave me a son.

        Little Suzie was sitting on Santa’s lap in the mall when she said “I want a Barbie and GI Joe” to which the Santa replied “You mean Barbie and ken don’t you, Barbie comes with Ken!” to which Little Suzie replied “NO, Barbie comes with GI Joe, she fakes it with Ken!!”.

      What I see in every Europussy and English TV show I stream is a gay couple and a Lesbian couple, plus, now handicapped characters are all the rage.

    I think a name like Lady Jaye fits the bill.

    And that whole Dr. Levine freak show keeps reminding
    me of Dr. Nassar and his crew of freaks.

    ReEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
    That is all.

    Why not?!?

      Exactly! Please don’t ruin my childhood memories!

    • Anonymous says:

      Scarlett may’ve had bigger boobs, but Lady Jaye’s (and her figure) were always well-defined so kids could tell she was a girl with short hair on the cartoon show. (Us male kids noticed.)

      Al Capp (author of ‘L’l Abner’ for you young ‘uns) was once asked why almost all the women in his strips were good looking women with long legs and big boobs. His reply was that ” I happen to LKE long-legged beautiful women with big chests.” I’m sure nowadays he would be banned.

      • rgr769 says:

        The woke feminists and the trannies would cancel him out of a job if he said that in a tweet or on fakebook. Plus, his characters are “white.” Therefore, the racial grievance mongers would be coming after him as a white supremacist. Just like what they just did to Dr. Seuss–said all his cartoons were “too white.” I always thought the Grinch was green. All non-colorized cartoons printed on newsprint be rayciss cuz they not POC. Funny how that happens when one draws a figure on white paper with black ink.

      reminds me of the freak show at the Frederick County (Maryland) fair when I was a kid- all Biden’s people.

    My observations from watching TV.
    1. 78.3% of veterans are homeless.
    2. 65.3% are homeless women.
    3. A 105 lb woman can beat the snot out of an NFL linebacker.
    4. Most veterans have the ptsd.
    5. The ptsd causes these vets to be sociopaths.
    Etc etc etc.

  7. Ex Coelis says:

    ‘the top button holding on for dear life’ actually appears to be a zipper in the above illustration..
    Buttons, zippers – either way, I’m all for ’em. *shrug* Call it my own personal version of a ‘hot extract’. As our John Lennon sang ‘Strange days indeed! Most peculiar, Momma’..

  8. xyzzy says:

    No.

    Fuck that.

    If you have a penis, you’re a man. IDGAF about your delusions. I’m not about to go along with some Jonathan Yaniv wannabe perving up the ladies’ room.

    ““Why does Lady Jaye have to be well-endowed with her top-side screaming to bust out of her blouse with the top button holding on for dear life?””

    Counter balance for spear chunkin those B-40 rockets.

    ” Why does Lady Jaye have to be well-endowed with her top-side screaming to bust out of her blouse with the top button holding on for dear life?”

    You gotta problem wit dat, Jack?! Sometin’ wrong wid a woman with lots a femininity?!

    ” Staff Sergeant Lady Jaye is a step in the right direction, bustiness aside.”

    Hmmph! She ain’t no Connie Rodd, that’s fer shure.

    USNS Harvey Milk is an oiler operated by the Military Sealift Command for underway replenishment, not an aircraft carrier.

  12. Sparks says:

    I can’t wait for the Tina-Todd dolls with interchangeable parts for the wee bits. Just so exceptionally confused, woke parents can help already confused kids be even more so.

    On another note, Dr. Ralph or Rachel Levine is just too ugly to look at for long. I listened to the Rand Paul excerpt of her/his/its confirmation hearing. He/she/it tries hard to keep that baritone voice in check but to no avail. When I think of ugly people, he/she/it is at the near top of my list.

    I don’t care what anyone says. If you’re a man who sucks d*ck, you’re a queer, and if you’re a woman who likes licking other women, you’re a dyke.

    And, they can do surgery till the cows become horses, X-Y is a man and X-X is a woman. They will NEVER change that.

    Understanding there are chromosomal abnormalities, all of which involve either an extra X chromosome in males and females or a single X chromosome in women.

    Reference Klinefelter syndrome in men, Turner syndrome, and Trisomy X syndrome.

    The song I remember most is Eric Burdon and the Animals, We Gotta Get out of this place, played continually on the corner PX jukebox at Ft Gordon, GA in early 1967.

    • timactual says:

      When I was in basic at Ft. Knox “Ballad of the Green Berets” got a lot of play on the jukebox. Things were quite different a year or two later.

    Ashlee Evans Smith defeats notorious MMA timmy Fallon Fox (a transgender).

    After winning the fight Ashlee says although timmy had an advantage, men should fight men, women should fight women, and transgenders should fight transgenders.

  15. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    All I can say right now is that if I had a Daughter and saw some “self-identifying” male following her into the Ladies’ room I would suddenly self-identify myself as a Viking Berserker as soon as I got ahold of that freak.

    Happy Monday.
    Just dropping this and then running away.
