ARE THE MARINES ADOPTING COLLEGE-STYLE PC GUIDELINES ON “SEXUAL ASSAULT?” LOOKS LIKE IT. “In our Twitter conversation on this issue earlier this morning, John Schindler, a Navy Reserve officer and professor at the Naval War College, rightly worried about a system that treats ‘all men as potential rapists.’ . . . Adults are allowed to operate motor vehicles at high rates of speed with substantially more than one drop of alcohol in their system. It’s just asinine to pretend that they’re incapable of consenting to sex after a drink or two. If she’s too drunk to know what she’s doing; it’s rape. If she’s had a glass of wine, it’s reasonable to assume that Yes means Yes. This is bureaucratic overkill and it’s dangerous. You don’t change a culture that treats women as mere objects by replacing it with one that treats women as imbeciles incapable of regulating their own actions.”
You know, the old curmudgeons who opposed gender-integrating the military predicted these problems. They were dismissed as mossbacks. If the military becomes as PC as colleges, with potential recruits join the Men On Strike? Maybe to some people in the Administration, that’s not a bug, but a feature.
