If the left can redefine family and sex and what it means to be male versus female — and even remove the labels of male and female — that means one of the most basic of absolutes is removed from society.

Absolute? Hardly. Was a time, even in Western society, when a family was one man, his wives, his concubines, and whatever children he chose to acknowledge.

Ain't it convenient how we redefine absolute periodically?

Just to be clear I am a pagan. The references to god in the article mean nothing to me. However the attempt to control language is of importance. It is the proverbial slippery slope that history has shown could have dire consequences.

MOP GUN Dreadlocks, braids & ponytails now allowed in RAF in bid to increase diversity



DREADLOCKS, braids and ponytails are now allowed in the Royal Air Force.

Cornrows and twists have also been cleared.

Air Chief Marshall Michael WIGston has relaxed rules to recruit more diverse people.

The change could see an influx of hipster hair-dos, Tiger King-style mullets or faddish man buns.

ROYAL THEIR FORCE RAF fighter pilots told to use gender-neutral titles including ‘Ze’ and ‘Per’



RAF fighter pilots must use gender-neutral titles if asked by colleagues.

Commanders have drawn up a list of more inclusive pronouns for its personnel.

They include Ze, Per and Hir as alternatives to he, she, him and her. So a pilot might have a wing-Per, instead of wing man.

Other titles that gender-neutral people use, but are not in the guide, include, Ne, Nir, Ve, Ver, Zir, Zie, Xe and E.

The RAF Gender Network orders state: “Total inclusivity is not negotiable. It is critical to team cohesion and operational success.

"All personnel are encouraged to ensure they address individuals in line with their chosen pronouns.

"The open and transparent sharing of chosen pronouns is encouraged for all workforce colleagues.”

If a person’s chosen pronoun is not known, personnel should use a rank or grade instead.

The RAF is the only service with the female ranks of Airwoman and Aircraftwoman, which mirror male equivalents.

The Army and Navy have faced questions over their seaman and rifleman ranks.

Yep. That's what happens when you put lefties in charge of once-great, proud, institutions.

The oldest airforce in the world, and the second-biggest in Europe and NATO, is going to go broke. Bader and Gibson will be turning in their graves.

Yeah, tell you what.

Many, many years ago, when I was a young warrior, the great chief Secretary of Defense called together the Chiefs of Staff of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and the Commandant of Marines, and told them he wanted them to prepare "mission statements" for their services.

This was the time when business schools were all high on mission statements, which usually ended up being clunky, multi-clause, run-on sentences chock-full of bafflegab.

Well, the service chiefs got their staffs on this, and produced mission statements.

When the meeting came for reading the mission statements, the Army general went first:

"Mr Secretary, the mission of the United States Army is to provide excellence and durability in conducting land operation blah blah blah, and to remain on the cutting edge of advanced blah blah blah, ensuring the highest quality of blah blah blah."

The Navy admiral went next, and he was even worse. In addition to providing excellence and durability and highest quality, he threw in some crap about hydrography and research.

Surprisingly, the Marine general went against the usual trend of Marines to be plain-spoken, and gave an even longer mission statement packed with even more horse shit.

Whilst all this was going on, the Air Force General, gentleman by the name of Larry Welch, was looking at his half-page-long sentence, and feeling more and more depressed by the mountain of crap it contained. After a spell, he pulled out his pen, scratched out the mission statement, and wrote something in. When his turn came, General Welch said. . .

"Mr Secretary, the mission of the United States Air Force is to fly and fight."

So you can have Air Force pilots, navigators, mechanics, electronics operators, and suchlike who all have nice square jaws, big dicks, conservative haircuts, and comfortable English names, or you can have men and women who can fly and fight.

Your choice.

A San Francisco teacher has been ridiculed for her 'performative wokeness' after she claimed that viral Bernie Sanders wearing mittens at President Joe Biden's inauguration was a lesson in 'white privilege and male privilege.'

High school teacher Ingrid Seyer-Ochi penned the San Francisco Chronicle op-ed published on Sunday, nearly two weeks after Sanders and his mittens took the internet by storm.

In it, she criticized the 79-year-old senator for wrapping up against the cold in his mittens and winter coat, while she claimed that his female colleagues, and especially women of color such as Vice President Kamala Harris, did not have the same opportunity to dress down for such a prestigious event.

Sen. Sanders is no white supremacist insurrectionist. But he manifests privilege, white privilege, male privilege and class privilege, in ways that my students could see and feel,' Seyer-Ochi, who earns six figures working for the San Francisco Unified School District, wrote.
