Marines to undergo “unconscious bias” training to accept having women in ground combat units
From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:
Lady Marines: Tests found female grunts made units slower and less lethal
Oppose the idea of military women serving in active ground combat?
Then it’s reeducation camp for you!
It’s actually called “unconscious bias training.” How’s that for a euphemism?
Seems that a 2012 survey buried by the Pentagon until recently revealed that two-thirds of male U.S. Marines don’t want all infantry units opened up to women. And, as it turns out, most Americans feel the same way: they’re not opposed to military women serving as support for ground troops, but they don’t want them doing most of the fighting.
But no matter. The Marines will soon be cycling their men through the brainwashing machine in order to clear their heads of such “cultural and institutional resistance,” as Military.com reports:
“Marines across the Corps will be challenged on their unconscious prejudices and presuppositions as women get the opportunity to become grunts for the first time.
“The Marine Corps was also the only service branch to request that some combat units remain closed to women, after an extensive study found that teams and squads with female members were slower and less lethal than all-male units.”
