Is This The End of the Navy ‘Midshipman’?

CENTURIES OF TRADITION DOWN THE TOILET FOR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND SOCIAL ENGINEERING!


As Written By Christina Jedra for Military.com:

What happens when you take the “man” out of “midshipman”?

Navy officials will consider this question as they turn to language in an effort to fully integrate women into all levels of the service, including the Naval Academy.

Ray Mabus, the secretary of the Navy, issued a memo to the chief of naval operations on Jan. 1 asking for an “update of position titles and descriptions to demonstrate through this language that women are included in these positions.”

He also wrote: “Please review the position titles throughout the Navy and ensure that they are gender-integrated … removing ‘man’ from their titles.”

So what should it be?

Midshiperson?

Shipmate?

Just mid?

Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson assigned the Navy’s master chief petty officer to establish a group that will, Navy officials said, “canvass the fleet, talk with sailors to hear their thoughts and provide recommendations on feedback.”

    Sounds like a brilliant strategy to strike fear into the hearts of and deep respect into the minds of our enemies.
    Knowing you might be counter attacked by a vicious group of gender neutral hardened warriors should be enough to give anyone pause.
    Or not.
