    Don’t forget the Navy’s shiny new black woman fighter pilot:

      Another first!

      But I ask you, when will the Imperial Forces have a transgendered two-spirited Muslim vegetarian wheelchair-bound pilot?

      Until that day, we have a long way to go before everyone is equal! 😉

    “2D Space Operations Squadron”

    Last I checked, space was 3D. I guess this squadron will be operating entirely in 2D space, a.k.a. the ground.

      Yes, I noticed that.

      I guess after their photo op here, these will be the ‘hidden figures’ that stay on the ground… 😉

      Either that, or the U.S. Space Force has embraced the Flat Earth Theory… 😂

      Apparently it’s just a bad abbreviation for second:

      You think they’d have said ‘2nd’ if they meant second…

    The new effeminate US military sucks. There is no depth the troglodyte generals and admirals won’t sink to to lap up praise for making the military more “inclusive”. Combat effectiveness approaching laughably low levels? Recruit some more black transgender lesbian Muslims to increase our strength with more diversity!

      I’m still trying to find the source, but someone once made the observation that when women begin to form a majority’s of or take over leadership of any given organization, it’s at the point where said organization has become irrelevant. I can think of few organizations more irrelevant than a military space force formed by a collapsing empire. The same observation goes for the conventional “defense forces” of said empire.

        I noticed, when I was growing up in a mainline Protestant denomination, that once such a denomination allows women to become pastors, eventually almost all the pastors in that denomination become women. They’re never content to share power; they have to always back the sisterhood, and take over.

        Smart organizations like reactionary churches never allow women into leadership positions, not only for the Biblical reason that God didn’t permit them to have authority over men, but also because, if they pay any attention, they can see the rot that sets in, and the corruption of the sisterhood, in those ‘churches’ that do…

        Only a country that hasn’t seen large scale combat with a near-peer nation-state for decades could be dumb enough to think that women are even remotely fit for military duty – and the rude awakening were such combat to occur would result in many completely avoidable deaths and maimings. But what you say is spot on; the fall we are in is epitomized by these ludicrous gestures. The post-modern military is about photo ops not combat ops.

    Will S.,
    Didn’t St. Paul say something direct about putting women in positions of leadership? Could those denominations have overlooked that in Sunday School? He was pretty definite about it.

    This reminds me that it was a long time before NASA figured out how women could pee in zero gravity. The Russians found a way, but they weren’t telling. Had this Space Marines concept been proposed then, it would not have got off the ground. 🙂

      How can women pee in zero g? Same way they bleed in 1 g! 😉

        There is a problem with that. The pee needs to be gathered. We can’t have that stuff floating around. I think the answer was developing a system based on catheters.

        Floating around? Aren’t maxipads / tampons / Depends made of absorbent material?

        Who wants a fucking catheter stuffed into them, rather than a piss-soaked diaper?

        Both suck, but the price of space travel, on or the other…
