I am so glad I retired from this cr@p.
They have been there for nearly a century, and now they are contributing to a rise in assaults? Like, it has nothing to do with your recruiting practices, at all............
What it wasn't a video on YouTube? (sarc / off )
Suprised it took this long, they did it eons ago in the private sector to those who built their toys and they were pissed.
Beam me up Scotty.
Wait until it's a fully integrated gay military.
Because Pinups cause rape.
Pretty disappointing, if you ask me. If Supermarkets considers people checking out porn or swimsuit models on break not okay, as part of their training, and part of their concern for female employees, someone should be telling me that the concerns for other, higher positions shouldn’t be taken as seriously. I was deferred from serving in the Armed Forces as part of a medical deferral. However, I am disappointed that some in the military don’t have some of the important common sense that doesn’t belong in some of the workplaces we have available.
Yeah, I remember how rape rates soared during WWII due to risque nose art on aircraft too.
Kinda like how guns are responsible for murders, not the people who pull the trigger or the society that produces such people in increasing amounts.
I read somewhere that during WWII the Army Air Corps had to order flyers to tame down their airplane art as it was getting a bit too racy.
They aren’t saying if these are heterosexual assaults or not.
I’ve heard that the incidents of homosexual assaults have soared since the repeal of DADT.
In that case, I just hope that anyone, regardless of their sexual preference, displays some common sense in courtesy and decency. If the military doesn’t want guys having implied homosexual media displays on the walls, why shouldn’t it also be strict on overt heterosexuality too?
Geeze, I wasn’t plagarizing, Honest.
To be replaced by pictures of naked men?
We won’t let them vote.
Won’t let them carry guns.
Won’t let them have pin ups.
Won’t let them shoot back when they’re being fired on.
Require them to read rights to enemy combatants.
Isn’t Obamaland great? :)
Maybe it's just the ukelele's they don't like.
You're not alone. My father would not recognize the Air Force he served in back in 1951-53. I can't believe what has happened even since the 70s. And the guys who flew these wouldn't even be certain today who actually won the friggin' war:
pix of fags in drag ok. but no nekkid females.
>>I tried so hard to get my girlfriend to send a picture of her roommate.
I don’t think anyone has every successfully implemented “the switch.” :)
