How’s that Women in the Military Thing Going Now?

by W.F. Price on September 27, 2012

A general has been charged with forcible sodomy as well as “inappropriate relationships” with women under his command in Afghanistan, and now faces a court martial. Brig. General Jeffrey Sinclair has served with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Fort Lewis, and has earned a number of awards related to combat arms and parachuting. He’s a real combat general; not an armchair type.

A news release by the Fort Bragg Public Affairs Office listed the charges presented against Sinclair as including “forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, attempted violation of an order, violations of regulations by wrongfully engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card, violating general orders by possessing alcohol and pornography while deployed, maltreatment of subordinates, filing fraudulent claims, engaging in conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman and engaging in conduct prejudicial to good order and discipline, or of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.”

Few specifics about the allegations against Sinclair were released Wednesday, but a Defense Department official said “several women were the subject of Sinclair’s alleged misconduct.”

I suspect that the more combat-oriented an environment is in the military, the more likely these problems with women are to come about. For one thing, fighting men are more passionate by nature, and then there’s the fact that these men also turn women on more. A forward base in hostile territory is not likely to have the same atmosphere as an assignment stateside. The sense of danger actually tends to make people more sexually charged, or so I’ve heard from those who survived battles and sieges on the Eastern Front in WWII, where female-operated AA batteries behind the front lines became de-facto brothels.

Add to that the fact that our personnel are serving in a remote Muslim country with no access to local females to speak of, and things are bound to happen. As to whether Sinclair “forced” anything on anybody, we don’t know at this point, and it seems unlikely, but it isn’t surprising at all that some forbidden hanky-panky may have occurred.

When ideologues make attempts to force equality on real-life situations – particularly extreme ones – the results are rarely satisfactory. The answer, of course, is always “we need more equality,” and unfortunately those who screwed up by implementing it in the first place never have to answer for their mistakes. Eventually, the result is a steady deterioration of performance that hollows out the mission, and ultimately national power and strength.

I understand that military equality between males and females is a crystal meth pipe dream given that the military is always intended to be designed to be a killing force and never intended to be designed as a dating service.

Tragically and extremely unpatriotically, all feminists denigrate soldiers by calling them rapists (without even knowing the men’s given names). This happens to male soldiers of any nationality and regardless of whatever side of whatever theater of warfare on which they are fighting. Hypocritically and ironically, said feminists want the service the men in uniform provide and these feminists cannot be bothered to go to a country lacking a standing army, such as Costa Rica.

Feminists are completely impervious to the fact that when a country wins its independence via an armed struggle (such as the United States, Haiti, Spanish-speaking Latin American countries, Zimbabwe, and the five Lusophone countries of Africa, among others), the right to bear arms is almost always a treasured right and the typical means of handling discord is almost always warfare or violence.

The reality that the narrative since the days of the cavemen has been one of violence and conflict far more often than order and harmony, is almost entirely lost on pretty much all feminazis, manginas and white knights.

If you have one or more siblings, half-siblings, stepsiblings, adopted siblings or foster siblings, or some combination thereof, you were almost guaranteed to be at each other’s throats for a significant portion of your formative years. Not to berate only children (and no, I never considered only children to be spoiled, because I am a middle child who knows damn well that only children do not have everything that they could possibly want), but sibling animosity helps children compete in life and prepares them for the fact that hostility is the way of the world more often than harmony.

I know feminazis who do not like the current Mozambican flag that contains an AK-47 superimposed on a star or the Angolan flag that contains a machete. Unfortunately, pretty much all of the women in the Northeast are like that.

He obviously pissed somebody off up the chain of command.
These things don’t just happen in a vacuum.

It’s not safe to work or serve with women.
The potential for trouble is way too high.

Once they invaded the workplace the last vestige of male only space was the military. Now even this is no longer true. I don’t know where men can go and work with other men without female interference anymore. Even if you own your own business, the government forces you to hire them…and invest in all manner of special female accommodations, like breast pumping stations and tampon dispensors.

Ironically the safest “male only” space is a Gay Bar. And even then curious women wander in to meddle and cause disruption.

Possessing pornography is prohibited, as are women. Is the military trying to reduce its dependence on diesel fuel by using semen to power vehicles?

The best example right now is Syria. 30,000 men women and children have perished so far in the “fight for independence”. Ironically this fight will probably end with some sort of quasi-theocracy, like Egypt. Strict adherence to Sharia Law will be enforced. Some independence!

That’s what Democracy brings to the Middle East – – Muslim rule, fanatacism, violence and religious oppression. This time next year Iran will have a functioning nuke if they’re not invaded and conquered first. This period of relative worldwide peace has been so boring. We need to War, it’s in our blood. It’s not fair that one country is better than another.

Interesting article “Your friend menstruation.”
Appears women are very horny once a month and will have sex with the most aggressive male available to them at that time.This re-enforces the “thinking with the vagina” theme that a women herself espoused.

Now that the lawz have given wymyn free pass to act out their base animals nature,no man is safe from the Whiplash regret post-sex.(ref to OT)

No doubt these milfem cursors were ovulating and thinking with the gash when they asked to be screwed.

The proper thing for the law to do is recognize this animal instinct and either regulate wymyns behaviors of legalize male sexuality again.

Women want it both ways,a rough man for sex,and prison for rough men.

We are living in a Harrison Bergeron world (a short story by Kurt Vonnegut) where the talented and capable (Men) are being handicapped and weighed down to make the average among us (women) look equal. As the old saying goes, it will only get worse before it gets better. And the situation is just getting worse and worse.

Mossad and the CIA disagree with you.

As to “conquered”, we’ll see. The Iranians are not Arabs, they’re caucasian. Indo-Aryans. More than any other conflict, it was six centuries of war with the Persians which caused the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, creating a power vacuum that enabled the rise of Mohammed.

Any attack on Iran has the potential to be a disaster for the USA. I can hardly believe we’ve fallen so low, that our government is in the hands of criminals and idiots who would contemplate this.

“For one thing, fighting men are more passionate by nature, and then there’s the fact that these men also turn women on more. “

No just the army, any male with authority over other men turn women on, gangs, businessman, there is a reason why these scandal always involve high ranked men, generals, because that is what turn women on, a female L.T dose not fuck a lower or same raked than her.

“I’ve heard from those who survived battles and sieges on the Eastern Front in WWII, where female-operated AA batteries behind the front lines became de-facto brothels.”

Is always like that, fly attendants and pilots tend to have sexual orgies, add that the company put them in the same hotel some times rooms next to other, no long ago there was a case like this just Google Images “cathay pacific scandal” NSFW, a fly attendant sucking the pilot’s dick.

Doctors do the same with nurses, if you notice a pattern here:

>Men with authority over men and women
>Far away from their families and relatives, avoiding exposure by this
> Lot of time male-female together, for above 50 hours a week (fly attendants above 90 hours per week, they spend more time on the air than in the ground)
>Countless excuses available, nurses work late, planes get delayed, soldiers bath almost together.

I remember the movies, “Up In The Air” where Vera Farmiga’s character fuck around with George Clooney from city to city like a good deluxe prostitute, just to find out she is married with kids.

Or the last Transformer where Patrick Dempsey gives Rosie Huntington-Whiteley a Mercedes-Benz E550 as a “gift”, Shia LaBeouf”s expression says everything.

Any man must be eye-opened when his girlfriend or wife is working for a alpha, or among alphas.

The General Orders are supposed to apply to all soldiers, male or female. Funny tho that we only ever hear of the men being charged. I like how the old ‘it takes two to tango’ meme seems to mysteriously disappear when it does not benefit the woman.

I was having a drink with a friend yesterday. He told me that last weekend he and his family attended a Cermony at one of our ports where one of our Frigates was moored. It was an Open Day and he had sent me a photo of his nine-year-old posing beside one of the sailors. He told me however that most of the Mariners seemed to be female – short, fat and entirely unattractive; he despaired of what they are doing to The Royal Navy, as he naturally doubted their ability under pressure. What self-respecting man wants to be employed in an occupation that is awash with Oestrogen?

“he despaired of what they are doing to The Royal Navy, as he naturally doubted their ability under pressure.”

There was a guy who had been in the military who told me that in actual warfare when the bombs start dropping & the gunfire starts coming at them in an actual combat situation, women just throw down their guns and start running screaming like they would do any other situation.

We’re doomed. All so we can pretend ‘women are just the same as women’ – that’s more important to all these idiots that run this country & half the idiot population than the security of the country. It’s that way in any situation in life- this political correctness & diversity shit is becomes more important than success, life or death- you name it. In that sense it’s like drugs or alcohol addiction – you throw away your whole life for this one stupid, trivial thing.

Unfortunately, as we’ve discovered throughout history, no country including Cuba or Columbia or Egypt or any other was better off under puppet regimes of the US. Batista was an absolute tyrant compared to Castro. The people in those countries have nothing to lose.

That’s a description of malignant narcissism. Making yourself good by making everyone else look bad. Common tactic among malignant narcissists and psychopaths. Yes, they are crippling the most productive and responsible men and transferring the wealth from them to the most irresponsible women in exchange for votes and power and control. It will get a lot worse before it gets better.

Hmm, interesting. Just looking over the laundry list of charges here, it seems like the general committed several crimes that had nothing to do with women at all, and, if true, your points about his character/background don’t matter all that much. Criminal activity is criminal activity. But if you just want to look at the alleged misconduct with subordinate females, then yes, that’s worth discussing. The important thing to remember here is that he outranked those women, which means, no matter how consensual it was or who was throwing herself at him, it’s still his fault – as ranking officer, he takes the blame for fraternization. If you take this situation in that light, it’s less about male/female issues in the military, and more about high/low rank fraternization. It’s about a general who broke the rules, not a general who’s been victimized by the feminization of the military. At least, not directly. By sleeping with a higher-ranking office, those women basically assured themselves immunity from prosecution for their own culpability/fraternization activites. Other than that, this story has very little to do with the problems of women in the military.

What is worth discussing, on that front, is the habit some women have of getting pregnant before/during deployments to come home, how women are being diagnosed with PTSD at higher rates, how morale is affected in units where the one or two attractive females start screwing all their fellow soldiers, and so on. I understand the point you’re trying to make here, and it’s something that needs to be discussed, but this example isn’t all that illustrative of it.

I was under the impression that the spearhead was against male disposability. This post is pathetic. You want men only to go and get raped and blown up in combat? For fuck’s sake, womyn are already benefiting way too much from cheap male sacrifice, it’s about time they contribute too. You’d rather encourage them even more to stay safe, sound and blowing men’s salaries while we go and actually die for our country. So now womyn shouldn’t go to war, they are precious gems that deserve to be worshiped for having tits. They don’t need to contribute to the society they live in, they should just suck up our resources. Because tits. Seriously man. I didn’t think you believed men should be the ones losing their lives for this country. While you bitch about women actually paying their dues for once, we’ll be fighting for men’s equality.

-van

van, think about this way:

When a man signs up for service he knows he’s risking being blown up, shot, whatever it may be.

I wouldn’t recommend it to my son or young men I care about at this point, but it’s an option a lot of guys want to pursue.

However, when young men sign up and put their lives in harm’s way, should we add the extra risk of having some little bitch haul him in front of a courts martial because she was mad he didn’t return her texts?

If you really think we’re going to expose women to the same risk as men in the military, you’re hopelessly naive. It will never happen for a couple reasons. First, human beings viscerally dislike the idea of sacrificing females in war. It’s ignoble and disturbing on an instinctive level. Wanna change it? Well, give it a try, but I think you’d be wasting your time. If I’m wrong, fine. But I don’t think I am.

Next, women make really lousy fighters. Men are so much better than women at fighting that any military that relies on women for basic combat will be fatally handicapping itself. I don’t think the US is that crazy yet.

So why on earth would we not only handicap our armed forces, but also expose our troops to undue risk as well? It’s stupid. Leave the women out of combat — they are more trouble than they are worth. Poll the fighting men and I’m fairly sure you’d find they agree. The on-base pussy may be nice for some of them, but it’s just too damn risky given our politics. Best we just keep the women segregated in military contexts. It would save both the taxpayers and troops a whole lot of trouble.

Having been a former Marine Officer , and having got into trouble the last few months I was on active duty, I am a realist about how the US military is more than happy to ‘burn’ one of its own if their is an advantage or political agenda for them to do so.
To be honest with you I don’t think there is enough information in the article to force me to jump to any conclusions, but reading this I find some of the charges a little suspect.

“Alcohol and pornography while deployed” -give me friggin break! -you could charge almost all of the US military in theatre for that!
“misusing a government travel charge card”- sounds more plausible. As a former financial officer I saw plenty of senior officers try to manipulte the system for their own benefit. Some case were unintentional though.

For me, the open ended nature of some of the sexual charges poses some questions. Soldiers and Marines are hard core fighters, and with that comes a high testosterone level, which some women love and others shy away from. In this case, does sexual misconduct mean he said something bad to a woman, or touched her on the bottom, or raped her?? I do suspect that they are probably trivial littles things that the women have blown out of proportion.

I’m glad I’m off active duty and not subject ot their BS any more. This is hard for me to write, but I think that Uncle Sam is so greedy corrupt, and bankrupt that he’s not worth fighting for any more!

Translation – the ‘system’ made this rape possible and the victim bears some minor responsibility.

Nonsense. It doesn’t matter what your opinion is concerning women in military situations – he’s been charged with a serious crime. He will have his day in court. As a general – I’m sure he was aware of all existing rules.

I agree with Bill here. SOMEBODY has to man the ramparts, and anyone who thinks otherwise is naive. I chose to spend my adult life doing that, and retired last year as a field-grade officer.

Women can’t fight. Period. Or, to be more accurate, finding the 0.0000001% who can is not worth the enormous cost of doing so. The best solution is to leave them stateside, for the sake of the mission and the men who must carry it out.

So… what do we do with them? They certainly benefit from the fact that the military exists. Men are subject to conscription – in the form of registering for selective service in the U.S.. If women enjoy the same rights as men do, it should cost them something. There is a solution. There are some militarily-useful tasks that women can perform, but note that I did not say that they belong in the military with authority over men.

First of all, any cohort of people who are to be categorically spared combat must never wield authority over people who can be called on to fight. Having said that, women are perfectly capable of being clerks, cooks, and even intelligence analysts in the rear area under strict military-like discipline where they can perform those tasks without being liabilities. That way women can contribute to the degree their biology allows without being a drag on the men who will always – must always – bear the brunt of the burden for fighting: as our biology demands.

We have historical precedent. In WWII, all the major belligerents used women in support roles. Few used them in direct combat, although even that was not unheard-of in moments of desperation – but the standard model was to have female auxiliary corps under strict supervision, and the women did NOT typically command men, even if their auxiliary “rank” was higher than the real rank of the fighting men around them.

The average woman can file reports as well as a man. That frees men to get the job done. But for an example of what an extraordinary woman can do, think “Grace Hopper” rather than “G.I. Jane.” The former was a real woman – the latter a work of feminist fiction.

Yep, more women, more accusations of rape, more court-martials, more men screwed for life. Women say the sexist rape climate is rampant in the military. So men turn into rabid animals when women show up? I don’t buy it. This reminds me of when female reporters forced their way into male locker rooms, then complained about the sexist attitudes, and nasty behavior of the men.
Can’t we just kick their asses off this planet?
