So. How’s this for a military culture that’s respectul to women? How can we even say that in the same sentence? I thought this would be a huge story. It wasn’t. We like Russ Williams better because we think we can’t explain him. The MSM wouldn’t even publish the more egregious cartoon because they found it too offensive. Ha! What about this week?
The military has launched a purge of its classroom materials after several offensive cartoons, including some featuring women in degrading sexual situations, were used in courses for soldiers headed to Afghanistan.The drawings were part of presentations provided to instructors at the Canadian Defence Academy in Kingston, Ont.
One cartoon, intended as an example of reading body language, shows a woman at a bar piled with empty glasses engaged in a sexual act with a man on a barstool. The caption reads: “How to tell when you don’t have to buy her any more drinks. . . . ”
How to tell when you don’t have to buy her more drinks? Prelude to rape.
The officer in charge of “Conduct After Capture” training acknowledged the cartoons are offensive.
But Lt.-Col. Lloyd Gillam said he believes the illustrations appeared only in draft versions of the training materials and never made it into the classroom, where there are male and female students.
Ah, so they were only in the draft versions. So they are indicative only of what the military represents but won’t acknowledge they represent. Lest someone take issue. Appearances you know, appearances. And they weren’t used in co-ed company. Why is that important? Ah, so women can be deluded into thinking they are respected while the porno joking goes on among the jocks in their offices and locker rooms. Well, that’s alright then.
Colonel Williams can’t be explained? Oh yes he can. And we’d better explain him and the men like him and the systemic sexism that aids in his development and recreation. Because we’re spawning guys like him by the barrel every day. Of course, not just in the military.
