The Marine Corps prepares for women in combat roles with mandatory “unconscious bias” training

Several news sources[1] are reporting that the Marine Corps will soon start “unconscious bias” training of all Marines, to challenge their unconscious prejudices and presuppositions as women begin transitioning as grunts for the first time. The goal, allegedly, is to allow for a smooth transition and head off any cultural resistance.

The code for “unconscious bias” training essentially means Twilight Zone style brainwashing and re-programing. Warning: Don’t watch the following video if you are under a doctor’s care or taking any kind of psychotropic medication.

I knew the women in combat issue had already been decided, but when I saw this new mandatory training requirement my first reaction was……………………… (silence, long exasperated exhaling of breath with eyes closed and head tiled down), more silence while staring at a blank wall for about five minutes; you get the picture.

Despite that the majority of Marines, both male and female are opposed to this politically correct social engineering experiment, the tiny percentage of effeminate and neutered Pentagon leaders are terrified of that cold hard stare from the uber-feminists.

A survey conducted in 2012 by The Center for Naval Analyses[2] found two-thirds of male Marines disapproved of integrating women, and a third of female Marines also opposed the idea. However, this survey was not considered when the decision to allow women combat roles was made. This same survey revealed that 80% of male infantry members were concerned about false allegations of sexual assault.

The conservative website, Truth Revolt[3] quipped,

this administration has turned the greatest fighting force on the planet into a social engineering petri dish.

Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters, who is also a military analyst for the Fox News Channel, railed against the military’s quest to be politically correct, stating,

If I could make one change to improve our combat effectiveness in the military – it would be turning all those equal opportunity and sensitivity trainers and counselors into combat rifleman,” he said. “We need more rifles. We don’t need any more sensitivity.

Colonel Peters has also opined in the past that the primary purpose of the military is to blow shit up and kill people.

The massive social engineering, political correctness, and the demonization of male service members as rapists just waiting to strike, are taking their toll on the military, with recruitment numbers significantly down.[4]

I wonder if those making these ignorant decisions will be tooting that same horn when the female grunts start piling up in body bags, and what everyone in the Corps realizes, more male grunts in body bags as well.

The Marine Corps was the only service to request an exemption to keep some combat roles male-only. Defense Secretary Ash Carter denied the exemption request, saying he wanted to keep standards consistent across all services. The Marine Corps study determined that male-only units vastly outperformed mixed gender units on combat-related tasks, and Navy Secretary Ray Mabus bashed the Marine leaders who ran the study, saying they biased the results.

Rank and file Marines no longer trust Mabus, and neither does Marine General John Kelly.  At his final Pentagon briefing before recently retiring, Kelly said there will be incredible pressure to collapse standards because of “agenda-driven” officials bent on seeing more women enter combat positions.

Speaking of Ray Maybus:

Here are just a few of the several thousand comments that have appeared on the various sites that have reported about the integration of women in the infantry and this training.

RuziAs a retired female Marine, I predict an increase in false allegations of rape and sexual harassment, malingering, high fertility rates (especially before deployments), and a decrease in physical fitness standards and morale.”

Jeffrey Gee“Leave no man behind” unless you are a 100lb woman trying to carry a 200lb man off the field.

dygene“There are no points for political correctness in combat, this insanity will get Marines killed both male and female.”

 0331“Great, another round of useless touchy-feely indoctrination sessions, much like all Marines are rapists, and we have to be trained like circus monkeys not to rape brainwashing sessions.  I’m glad I only have a few months to go before I’m out.”

In July 2012, Marine Corps Captain Katie Petronio authored an article; “Get Over It.  We Are Not All Created Equal,”[5] and since has been resoundingly criticized. She opines that combat roles ARE NOT for women and describes some of the physical problems she had just a few months into her deployment as a Combat Engineer.

I had muscle atrophy in my thighs that was causing me to constantly trip and my legs to buckle with the slightest grade change. My agility during firefights and mobility on and off vehicles and perimeter walls was seriously hindering my response time and overall capability. It was evident that stress and muscular deterioration was affecting everyone regardless of gender; however, the rate of my deterioration was noticeably faster than that of male Marines and further compounded by gender-specific medical conditions.

I can say with 100 percent assurance that despite my accomplishments, there is no way I could endure the physical demands of the infantrymen whom I worked beside as their combat load and constant deployment cycle would leave me facing medical separation long before the option of retirement.

Captain Petronio also provided a 20-minute interview on YouTube where she furthers describes the limitations of women.

I don’t believe there is any unconscious bias on opening up combat roles to women; I think is completely conscious. I don’t understand how every conceivable study, experiment, pure genetics, biology, lowering of standards, common sense and the wishes of the majority of the Marine Corps flat-out states that women are ill-equipped for combat roles.

The forcing of women into combat roles and now this so-called unconscious bias training instead of budget reductions means less money for bullets and combat training and ultimately a less effective and more gender divisive military.

Yet, another fail………….

Deep breath, deep breath, breeeeethe…………..
