“It is unclear to us as veterans how an exercise regarding preferred pronouns pertains to sexual assault prevention in the military or service academies.” That’s from a letter Rep. Mike Walz (R-Fla.) and Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) sent to West Point military academy demanding answers on why cadets were made to participate in a role-play session about “respecting the pronouns people prefer.” It’s too bad they weren’t teaching such useful skills in the times of U.S. Grant or George Patton — misgendering was probably a big obstacle to Grant’s and Patton’s victories, right?
Fox News reported on March 22 that it had exclusively obtained a copy of Walz and Banks’s letter to West Point Superintendent Lt. Gen. Steve Gilland. Fox Digital also obtained a copy of the leaked West Point “facilitator guide” with the “It’s Not That Complicated” exercise on “Understanding and respecting the pronouns people prefer.”
According to the congressmen’s letter, the exercises in the facilitator guide were “mandatory for all cadets, led by cadets, and supervised by faculty.” That echo you hear is the Chinese and Russians laughing at the U.S. military.
“It’s dinner at Grant, and the four cadets are sitting at a table. CDT Baker gets a phone call from a friend and takes the call. CDT Baker messes up the way he refers to his friend on the phone and it becomes apparent that the friend is identifying as gender neutral. CDT Adams and CDT Cruz start joking about it. CDT Acevedo squashes the joking and/or tries to educate them.”
