Air Force cadets told to use use gender-neutral language

Woke and Critical Race Theory in the military instead of using that time to make the military more mission effective. (Ben Garrison)

Diversity training, at the U.S. Air Force Academy, requires the use of inclusive words. Inclusiveness must include “all genders”. The words “mom”, “dad”, and other words that specify male or female as traditionally understood, should be replaced with inclusive words. This is some of the information that Fox News obtained from a slideshow presentation from the U.S. Air Force Academy.

From Fox News:

The diversity and inclusion (D&I) training also includes an exercise asking cadets to separate into small groups and write down as many “G-Animals,” or animals that start with the letter “G,” that they can think of in one minute’s time.

“What does this activity show us about the power of combining our diverse perspectives??” the activity asks. “If this were an operational USAF/USSF [United States Space Force] challenge (think COA [course of action] development) what risks might be present if we did not fully leverage the diversity of our group?”

One slide in the presentation claims that D&I training is critical for “developing warfighters” to be “prepared to lead the USAF/USSF with character.”

“How can we Lift Others (motivate our teams) if we don’t know our people?” it asks. “How can we Elevate Performance if we don’t include people during planning and execution??”

“Today we are preparing to face challenges that may not exist today,” the training says. “For example, Information Warfare only became a career field 7 years ago, and we stood up the Space Force in 2019. This makes our need to innovate critical. Thus, our leaders have deemed D&I a warfighting imperative.”

At the beginning of the training, cadets are assured that “what’s said here, stays in the room (let’s have each other’s backs)?,” and cadets were instructed not to “share people’s stories with their name/identifiers).”

The presentation also asks cadets to finish prompts like, “What I think about me in terms of who I am,” “What others think about me,” “What might be misunderstood about me” and “How squad/classmates can help me feel valued.”

At the end of the presentation, cadets are informed about additional D&I resources on the academy’s Colorado Springs campus, including a “D&I Reading Room” and “Affinity groups.”

And now this…🙄🤨

Air Force Academy Promotes Fellowship That Bans ‘Cisgender’ Men: ‘This Program Isn’t For You’”

“Eligible applicants must be cisgender women, transgender women, non-binary, agender, bigender, two-spirit, demigender, genderfluid or genderqueer”

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/air-force-academy-promotes-fellowship-bans-cisgender-men-this-program-isnt-for-you

“The United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) in Colorado is encouraging cadets to apply for a fellowship program for “gender minorities” that specifies “cisgender” men need not apply.”
the fellowship’s website says, “If you are a cisgender man, this program isn’t for you.”

“Another nine-week paid internship
mentioned in the email, the Patti Grace Smith Fellowship, is only available for Black cadets pursuing aerospace careers.”

So…If you are a Caucasian, Asian or Hispanic Male or Female, you cannot apply.

Is this not Discrimination?

Is this not Discrimination?

Not in this administration.

SFC D

No. This is “equity”.

Not “racism” when progressives do it, of course.

So, bottom line is that if you were born a Male, whether you are Caucasian, Black, Asian or Hispanic, that you cannot apply.

In reality, who is now becoming the Minority?

🤔🙄

So…We are guessing Mikey Weinstein, an United States Air Force Academy graduate has no problem with this, yet has a problem with Christianity in the Academy.

Last time we checked, our Jewish Carpenter was born a Male and was of Middle Eastern descent…🤔🙄

Diversity training, at the U.S. Air Force Academy, requires the use of inclusive words. Inclusiveness must include “all genders”.

Can they provide the Cadets a list of genders? Will the list of genders be subject to periodic updates as new genders are “discovered”? Inquiring minds want to know.

The only diversity that the US Military should be concerned with is effectively using small arms, artillery, air and and naval gunfire support. But apparently that is not a priority in today’s military.

Spot on, Hack Stone. Nailed it. That ordanance coming “their” way way isn’t going to be concerned about what “they” identify as. “They” better hope that “them” Grave’s ID Troops can identify “those” bodies.

Military training should focus on the lessons of Psalms 144:1. “…teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight.” (ht 2 to the other David) That Sun Tzu fellow has some insights on that too. Or Clausewitz had some theories too.. Instead of crying over pronouns they need to Cry havoc, and release the Dogs of War.

If I had a nickel for every gender distributed amongst the human population, I’d have $0.10 and a drinking problem.

Oh, wait….

If I had a dollar for every Gender out there, I’d have $2 and a handful of counterfeits!

That’s right.

Somewhere, Billy Mitchell, Claire Chenault, Curtis LeMay and my dad are raging.

Dr. Jordan Peterson has a great one-hour video on Youtube, where he cites this gender-bender pronoun bullshit as one of many potential reasons why Russia invaded Ukraine – to keep western cultural rot as far away from Russia as possible.

I wonder how that “diversity training” is going for the militaries of Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

Our armed forces have become a laughing stock.

Is this the same USAF, where an Airmen called a Field Grade officer Brother during a stop?

Seems Military Bearing along with Customs and Courtesies has gone the way of the Do-Do bird. This ain’t my (Or my Dad’s, FIL or Brother’s) Air Force anymore that is for sure.

I’ve seen multiple enlisted, of a specific demographic, from both Peterson AFB and Ft Carson, in uniform, sagging their drawer, showing off them OD green drawers..

Back around 1994-95 at a Stateside BX, I almost had a heart attack, when a black CMSgt yelled out after a black Airman in the BX concession store area.

Said Airman saw his buddies and went into a limp, shuffle, hop routine. The Chief seeing this yelled “Hey Airman quit walking like a N****r and start walking like a man.”

I did a 180 and along with almost every other Caucasian in earshot decided that a BX trip wasn’t needed that day during lunch.

They are instructing junior in rank to address seniors as Sir or Ma’am. That excludes the 55 currently recognized genders. Report that General to the DEI Officer for reeducation.

Some of “our kids” from Venturing are AF Acad grads.
I weep for them and the poor kids who are being subjected to this absolute inanity.
Vlad is glad that we won’t have any true leadership in our military – just “woke” insanity.

Biden talks tough but this military is not up to the challenge of power projection and sustained combat against a near peer like China, let alone an allied China, N Korea, Russia, Iran. I’m not sure our allies want to get involved with us considering our track record of screwing our friends, and not finishing what we start. I’m afraid our new gender neutral military would lose badly and get a large amount of our kids killed. Why should anyone take us seriously when we don’t take ourselves seriously. With recruiting shortfalls and stupid shit like this gender crap and the other woke stuff we would have to reinstitute a draft to get quality people into the service, they certainly ain’t interested in joining anymore.
