The Canadian Armed Forces have given Americans yet another reason to make fun of them by moving towards a gender-neutral dress code that will allow service members more choices.
Because that is what every service members truly wants... to be able to express themselves through fashion! 🙌
"We cannot define our soldiers by short hair anymore," says Maj.-Gen. Lise Bourgon, the acting chief of military personnel. "The colour and the length of your hair does not define your quality as a soldier and aviator and sailor. So this is a big departure."
Is this all about hair length? Or are we about to see soldiers covered in glitter and pink boas? How many soldiers complain about wanting to grow out their locks?
Isn't the purpose of a uniform exactly that... to be uniform?
The change is being pushed to allow and gain more diversity in the ranks. The military wants to be more inclusive by recruiting and accommodating women, visible minorities and other groups that are under-represented in the military.
Sounds like the Canadian Army isn't going by merits, just by racial and sexual identity. So... sorry for all the strong, white cis males out there that wanted to protect their country.
Come back when you have a more trendy identity!
Let's not forget this is the same government under Justin Trudeau who has said Canadian veterans are asking for too much support.
Trudeau thinks injured veterans have asked for too much but he bends at the knee for anyone with a gender-complex. Give them whatever they want as long as they're not white cis males!
Not only has the Canadian Army re-vamped their dress code, but they also overhauled the Armed Forces basic training ... something tells me that they didn't make it harder to pass.
