Skip to comments.Let down your hair: New Army rules for ponytails, nail color
Posted on 01/27/2021 5:29:32 AM PST by CodeJockey
Female soldiers can let their hair down, and flash a little nail color under new rules being approved by the Army. But male soldiers will still have to shave.
Army leaders announced Tuesday that they are loosening restrictions on various grooming and hairstyle rules, as service leaders try to address longstanding complaints, particularly from women. The changes, which also expand allowances for earrings and hair highlights and dyes, are particularly responsive to women of various ethnicities, and will allow greater flexibility for braids, twists, cornrows and other styles more natural for their hair.
. . . At the same time, he said that changes, like allowing women in combat uniforms to wear earrings such as small gold, silver and diamond studs, let them “feel like a woman inside and outside of uniform.”
. . . The new lipstick and nail polish rules, however, allow men to wear clear polish, and allow colors for women, but prohibit “extreme” shades, such as purple, blue, black and “fire engine” red. Men will also be able to dye their hair, but the colors for both genders are limited to “natural” shades. Prohibited colors include blue, purple, pink, green, orange or neon.

If you let trannies in, there are NO restrictions.
Cuz, let’s not be the fiercest military we can be. Let’s just be FABULOUS!
Sexism, Bigotry, LUNACY!!
I remember hearing a radio ad for the Navy maybe 20 years ago. And there were females voices which said “We are mothers, daughter, sisters .... and we do everything men do....(then in unison) AND SOMETIMES BETTER” followed by giggles. Yup, that is what I want in a fighting force. And what exactly do they do that is “sometimes better”? And nothing says strength like giggling.
For your interest.
My son left the 82nd airborne in 2004 and he said he saw a pregnant female soldier paratrooper with tennis shoes. He said then the Army was lost.
“particularly responsive to women of various ethnicities”
And there you have it.
How about having them feel like soldiers? Or is this not a priority?
Feminists say, “we’re just like men” but also, “don’t you dare treat us like men.”
IMO, and as much as it pains me to say this, as long as our military is taking orders from an illegitimate communist puppet regime, IDGAF. The less effective they are, the better.
No way would I encourage young people to join today’s military.
There’s certain jobs females are not suited for due to limits of physical ability. Front line military is one.....field police officer and prison guards are 2 more.
That’s just reality and truth.
But hey, we now live in bizzaro world.
White males should think twice about joining the military. Starve the beast.
White Christian males, especially.
It will all go better with coed showers. Perhaps they can install stripper poles in the showers for a better grip. LOL.
This federal government can't have nice things like a functioning standing army, it is used a fear agent and an intimidation creator.
The real enemy of the second amendment isn't congress. The real potential enemy of the 2A is the standing army.
