While the Chinese drill their Navy and practice launching their Air Force at Taiwan, the US remains focused on what it thinks counts: wokeness.
That’s right. Rather than practicing bombing runs, developing new tactics to send Red Chinese ships to the bottom of the sea, or developing new strategies to swat their planes from the air, our Air Force is zeroing in its focus on pronouns.
As of December 20th, the Air Force and Space Force will allow Airmen and Guardians to include their pronouns in the signature line of emails. Here’s what the absurd announcement said:
“Official signature blocks should include name, rank, service affiliation, duty title, organization name, phone numbers and social media contact information. Pronouns such as he/him, she/her, or they/them are now authorized but not required”
It added that:
“An inclusive force is a mission-ready force, and I’m thankful to the LGBTQ Initiatives Team for helping us realize this opportunity to be a more inclusive force,” said Under Secretary of the Air Force Gina Ortiz Jones.
The LGBTQ Initiatives Team, or LIT, a part of the Department of the Air Force Barrier Analysis Working Group, advocated for this change, one of the latest initiatives the DAF undertook to address barriers to service and promote a more inclusive culture.
“The change request was driven by awareness of a restrictive policy that was being used against transgender Airmen and Guardians who were authentically representing themselves,” said Lt. Col. Bree Fram, a LIT Transgender Policy Team co-lead. “It was also important for many individuals often confused as being a different gender in their communications.”
Given that Curtis LeMay didn’t feel the need to include his pronouns at the bottom of emails, it’s not quite clear how such a strategy will help the Air Force win the coming war with Red China.
Sure, it might help a few servicemembers feel more able to express their wokeness electronically, but it’ll hardly sink a Chinese ship or shoot down a commie plane.
Unfortunately, our military seems far more interested in wokeness than warfighting, so this ridiculous policy change might only be the beginning.
