Sounds like the story of a determined young lady to me, good for her.

We need to do more to include women in the Air Force instead of excluding them with things like Mustache March, even the Pentagon's new consultant on equality thinks so.


Feminist Calls Mustache March Sexist and Exclusive

March 7, 2014

(New York) When it comes to boosting morale, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh goes all out, as he did when he recently declared that this Mustache March will be one for the ages, with Air Force units world-wide competing for the honor of Top Mustache.

Not so fast, says, feminist Gloria Steinem, who was recently appointed as a Pentagon consultant for equality, "This is an example of exactly the the kind of non-inclusive cultural barriers that we are trying to beak down."

Steinem is taking her new role as Pentagon consultant seriously, and said, "For too long, sex has been the easiest and most visible difference used to organize human beings into superior and inferior groups, and sadly, this mustache contest is a legacy of that kind of thinking."

We caught up with Steinem at the elegant mid-town restaurant, Ardesia, for an interview on Fashion Week when she told us of her new role as Pentagon Equality Consultant. Ms. Steinem is excited about the opportunity to consult with the Pentagon and told us that she is working closely with officials to come up with a more inclusive contest that will build morale for all troops. "We've got a number of ideas that aren't gender exclusive, but our favorite is an eyebrow sculpting competition." said, Steinem.

Air Force officials declined to make a statement, but Pentagon spokesman, Steve Dallas, said, "I'm sure we will come up with an amicable solution; Ms. Steinem is in daily contact with us via Skype and is an integral part of our team."

And if she isn't now she will be when she's on a profile too long for the injury.

I do like the part about the importance and pride in having the rope. Very prestigious.

Let me be positive about this, though. It is a good story for those on the outside who don't understand the workings of the Air Force. The fact that she is female with a Hispanic last name makes it even more heart warming. Obviously, being a female and Hispanic, she's had to overcome diversity her entire life. I'm sure that helped prepare her for the struggles she faced in Tech School.

I can state, though, without a shadow of a doubt, that the squadron mentioned has the absolute BEST instructors in the Air Force (or will have this coming Monday).

Absolutely right!!! I am outraged. We must be all inclusive with these traditions. Especially during "Women's history month". Mustache March should, at best, be moved to Men's history month.

By the way, does the reg state that women can't have mustaches?

"Guardado will join her Reserve unit, and she said she plans on resuming her job as a police officer. In the meantime, she added, she will be looking at the possibility of switching to the active duty Air Force."

Yep, looking at the possibility of joining Active Duty. Because that is totally possible right now while they are cutting 25K people. They definitly need more chronically injured active duty members.

It is a men only contest, how can women participate?

You know, come to think of it, squadron barbecue's are sexist, too. I've never once seen a female grilling at one. It's almost like a "guy's club" thing going on. Hopefully we can get someone to speak out against it.

Dude, you really need to lighten up. She is actually doing a lot of good in this situation, the fact that we are celebrating only the masculinity of Robin Olds is proof that we have a fundamental problem with the Air Force.

Mustache March is sexism out of control and it is a detriment to young women like the one in the OP.

Many years ago Gloria Steinem was talking about the reduced physical qualifications that allowed female firefighters to pass.

When asked if she would rather be carried down stairs by strong male firefighters or dragged down by someone that couldn't lift her, she replied, it would be safer for her to be lower and dragged on the ground due to smoke and she would prefer that way.

After that, she lost all credibility. Have to admit, the Air Force and Gloria Steinem make interesting bed fellows. Can I say bed fellows in today's Air Force? : )

I'd prefer it, if you'd kindly find another word; not because of any sexual connotations, but because it sounds too much like a word Montgomery Burns would use.

As for being dragged down the steps, that does make a lot of sense in a smokey building. You shouldn't be so quick with your trash-talk about Ms. Steinem's wisdom.

Yeah, I see your point but ...

Even during drawdowns we need new accessions, and ...

I don't know if a "rotated pelvic bone" is a chronic injury. In fact, I was a medic for 14 years -- including time as an IDMT -- and I'd never heard of that one before. Had to look it up to see if it was real or just a case of patient ignorance. Turns out it's a real thing.

There are many situations in which dragging would be inadvisable. There may be broken glass or other debris on the ground. Someone may have fallen through a floorboard and the firefighter will need to lift him or her out.

Furthermore, dragging is not always possible. If the stairs are inaccessible and the firefighter must get an unconscious person down a fire ladder, then there is no option other than to carry them.

No fire department has ever dropped the lift-and-carry test for any reason other than concerns about sex discrimination, either to avoid lawsuits or comply with a court order. Feminists like Steinem are willing to dilute the standards for physically demanding jobs to accommodate women even if it endangers public safety.

Steinem is not only wrong but dangerously wrong.

Feminist Calls Mustache March Sexist and Exclusive

(New York) When it comes to boosting morale, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh goes all out, as he did when he recently declared that this Mustache March will be one for the ages, with Air Force units world-wide competing for the honor of Top Mustache.

Not so fast, says, feminist Gloria Steinem, who was recently appointed as a Pentagon consultant for equality, "This is an example of exactly the the kind of non-inclusive cultural barriers that we are trying to beak down."

Steinem is taking her new role as Pentagon consultant seriously, and said, "For too long, sex has been the easiest and most visible difference used to organize human beings into superior and inferior groups, and sadly, this mustache contest is a legacy of that kind of thinking."

We caught up with Steinem at the elegant mid-town restaurant, Ardesia, for an interview on Fashion Week when she told us of her new role as Pentagon Equality Consultant. Ms. Steinem is excited about the opportunity to consult with the Pentagon and told us that she is working closely with officials to come up with a more inclusive contest that will build morale for all troops.

Fatty, fat, fatties, suck at life. It amazes me how people sit around and eat Popeyes, etc then bitch and moan about being fat and worthless. Eating fast food occasionally isn't bad, but when you do it all the time...well.

Exactly!

I keep trying to tell people that, but I get called a troll for it. Sometimes I feel like all of my pearls of wisdom are being wasted on a bunch of swine.

Thanks for motivating me to keep up with my message of proper nutrition and physical conditioning.

It is the most important aspect of life, not just military service.

Whether you like it or not, the natural laws that govern homeostasis in biological creatures apply to you.

If you choose to ignore good nutrition and exercise, it is your body that suffers at not only the cellular level, but at the macro level as well.

In your role as a military service member, if you choose to force the cells in your body to process garbage like cheese whiz and laffy taffy, well, it ceases to be a personal problem and becomes my problem as well.

If you are in uniform beside me, I have the right to know that your cardio vascular system isn't being overwhelmed by a bunch of Whoppers, be they the Burger King variety or the chocolate malted milk dud variety.

I swear I'm waiting for you to go on a rant about the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Fat and out of shape people are not only a burden on the force, but on the tax payers as well.

Is that a reference to General Jack D. Ripper?

One cool point for you!

Exactly!

This is the real reason our health care system is in shambles. I sent a long letter to the White House that advised them to start blaming fat people who eat Velveeta cheese for running up health care costs for the rest of us.

I can't wait for the day when the Ad Council starts producing commercials that expose the damage theses selfish gluttons are doing to our country.

And if she isn't now she will be when she's on a profile too long for the injury.

I do like the part about the importance and pride in having the rope. Very prestigious.

Let me be positive about this, though. It is a good story for those on the outside who don't understand the workings of the Air Force. The fact that she is female with a Hispanic last name makes it even more heart warming. Obviously, being a female and Hispanic, she's had to overcome diversity her entire life. I'm sure that helped prepare her for the struggles she faced in Tech School.

I can state, though, without a shadow of a doubt, that the squadron mentioned has the absolute BEST instructors in the Air Force (or will have this coming Monday).

Rainmaker love it when good peoples can overcome the diversity in they life. Juss Last Momff "the diversity" tried to break into Rainmaker's truck. But, the next door neighbor had calt the Po nine and they caught the perp red handed. Good thing too, cause Rainmaker was about to go out and lock up and he always carry his old Uncle Joe's Sears Ted Williams model 300 shotty wiff him when he lock up at night. NomSayin?

Is it? I don't remember reading that.

I think they are having trouble with the PM system.

As for the ban, I probably deserved it, and only assume it was for the "fat dumb ass" or the fake Gloria Steinem article. That was something I typed up after swigging a half pint of vodka, but a more realistic reason would be for hijacking the thread, and for that, I do apologize.

Turn in your man card Abs. Only Wimmins say sorry. And In case you haven't noticed, this ain't exactly a Mensa meeting up in here. So, an academic timeout is in order.
Hyperbole:
hy·per·bo·le [hahy-pur-buh-lee] noun Rhetoric .
1. obvious and intentional exaggeration.
2. an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”
-Hyperbole is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally.

You make as much sense as a fish with a bicycle.

I'd much rather be dragged out of a burning building by a female firefighter than being lifted-and-carried out by some stupid man with a Robin Olds mustache.

You are falling victim to a bunch of outdated stereotypes about male firefighters and upper body strength.

Besides, if you adhered to a proper diet and PT regime, you wouldn't be such a dumb fat ass that got trapped in a burning building.

Go easy. Bruwin has been posting less nowadays so AA is casting the 'Bruwin Hook' for entertainment.

I have actually been enjoying AA's brand of humor for a while now. He actually got me pretty good a few weeks ago and it took several of his responses for me to catch on.

Oh, I completely bought the Gloria Steinem story for a few posts. I don't think he got the Chicken Little response from me he was looking for but I bought it for awhile.
