The Air Force has warned the troops not use words like "boy" or "girl" and such phrases as "blondes have more fun" because they are offensive. An email outlining the list of banned words was sent to airmen at Joint Base San Antonio, Texas. Banned words include "boy", "girl" and "blackmail" and phrases like "you people" has also been prohibited.
Wow! I wonder when the email directive about how offensive it is to kill someone comes out!
There is no room - no room at all, period, dot - for political correctness in our military. Our warrior class has served as a guinea pig petri dish for social justice activists for far too long. Sec. of Defense Mattis should find out who issued this idiotic directive, follow the chain of the like-minded and terminate all of them, short of that, reassigning them to the South Pole.
We simply cannot condone emotionally charged social engineering within the ranks of the best military the world has ever seen. Their jobs are tough enough given their fields of battle without saddling them with idiotic, touchy-feely, weak crap this this.
