i) The selective prudery of the politically correct is amusing.
ii) This is a predicable result of a coed military. Instead of concentrating our efforts on producing the most effective combat force, we’ve diverted our attention to vagaries of perceived sexual harassment.
iii) In combating perceived sexism, the policy is ironically sexist. Why draw the line with pinups that “objectify” women? What about pinups that “objectify” men?
Are male soldiers offended, or “made uncomfortable,” by a female soldier who has a male pinup? What about female soldiers who indulge in sexual innuendo?
Or are female soldiers thought to be more delicate than male soldiers, requiring special treatment to protect them from stuff most male soldiers would shrug off in reverse.
And now that Congress, it its infinite wisdom, has repealed Don’t-Ask-Don’t-Tell, what about gay porn?
