The force that defeated imperial Japan following its attack on Pearl Harbor two generations ago is now more concerned with creating a "safe space" for sailors to ensure that the 'proper pronouns' are utilized -- a concept that didn't even exist as an issue 15 minutes ago.
The Navy is training its members to create a "safe space" by using proper gender pronouns in a new instructional video modeled after a children's show.
The official training video is meant to emphasize "the importance of using correct pronouns as well as polite etiquette when you may not be sure of someone's pronouns," according to the Navy, which late last month published the video online. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service touts the video as an "official U.S. Navy video" posted by Air Force staff sergeant John Vannucci.
"Hi! My name is Jony, and I use he/him pronouns," Naval Undersea Warfare Center engineer Jony Rozon, sporting a rainbow-colored t-shirt, says to open the video.
This obscene joke is the latest offering from Biden's military meant to focus more on 'sensitivity' training than training men and women how to fight at sea and win battles and wars. The Army has implemented similar 'gender identity training,' even instructing its officers when to offer their subordinates gender-transition surgery, according to a Free Beacon report in March.
"These programs are part of a larger push by the Biden administration to make the military more welcoming to transgender individuals," the outlet adds in the report detailing the Navy 'training' video.
The Navy video, which runs nearly four minutes -- each one an embarrassment to our country and especially to those who fought and have died for it -- emphasizes how members can create "a safe space" by using "inclusive language" that signals they are "allies" who "accept everybody."
In addition, the video cautions sailors to not "misgender someone" and to take steps to ensure that doesn't happen (even if it's nearly impossible to tell a transgendered sailor's sex in a uniform). To that point and at the same time, the Sea Service is warning members not to pressure someone into revealing their desired pronouns because those members may still be in "the process of discovery" and are thus not ready to provide pronoun information yet.
This is insanity; literally, this policy is setting sailors up to fail. They can't ask a fellow sailor their pronouns (which should not be an issue or warfighting focus in the first place) but if they 'misgender' a colleague they'll get in trouble for it.
"A pronoun is how we identify ourselves apart from our name, and it's also how people refer to us in conversations," notes engineer Conchy Vasquez, who hosts the video along with Rozon.
"Using the right pronouns is a really simple way to affirm someone's identity. It is a signal of acceptance and respect," adds Rozon.
"Instead of saying something like ‘Hey guys,' you can say, ‘Hey everyone,' or ‘Hey team,'" Rozon noted as well.
"Another way that we could show that we're allies and that we accept everybody is to maybe include our pronouns in our emails or, like we just did, introduce ourselves using our pronouns," Vasquez says.
"I think the first thing to recognize is that it's not the end of the world. You correct yourself and move on, or you accept the correction and move on," Vasquez added. "The most important thing I can tell you is do not put the burden of making you feel good about your mistake on the person that you just misgendered."
Meanwhile, the Russians and Chinese, not to mention the Iranians and North Koreans, are no doubt becoming more confident by the day that the U.S. military is being downgraded in combat power to the status of a woke social club and thus not much of a threat anymore. What type of person will want to join now?
Biden's left-wing Democrat handlers are doing this, let's be crystal clear.
