U.S. military division tasked with confronting China to “unleash the potential of diversity and inclusion”

The armed forces have been a project of the gender ideologues for some time, perhaps because they are so overwhelmingly masculine. They still are, and the U.S. military is still easily the most powerful in the world. But that hasn’t stopped the ideologues from making progress. “Pride” is now celebrated by many branches (remember the U.S. Marines’ “Pride bullets?”); there is all sorts of babble about transgender soldiers, as affirming individual identity rather than creating a cohesive unit were the purpose of the military; there was that cringeworthy CIA recruitment video series. (Unsurprisingly, military recruitment is at record lows.)

The latest news on the culture front comes from the U.S. Pacific Air Forces (PCAF), the division assigned the role of countering or confronting China. According to the Washington Free Beacon, the PCAF has “ordered its senior leaders and commanders to stop using gender pronouns in written formats, saying the shift to more neutral language will help improve the fighting force’s ‘lethality.’” According to an email sent in May at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam: “We must embrace, promote and unleash the potential of diversity and inclusion.” Specifically, commanders are told: “Do not use pronouns, age, race etc.”

Why? Because: “Competition against near-peer adversaries requires a united focus from the command, the joint team, and our international partners. Welcoming and employing varied perspectives from a foundation of mutual respect will improve our interoperability, efficiency, creativity, and lethality.” According to the Washington Free Beacon, this “policy change is part of a larger effort by the Biden administration and the U.S. military to foster what it says is a more culturally sensitive environment.”
