An email from Andersen Air Force Base, obtained by The Washington Free Beacon, revealed that senior leaders on the Guam base were instructed to shift to gender-neutral terms, and to drop references to race and sex, when writing about Air Force personnel such as performance reviews.
A spokesman for Andersen confirmed to the Beacon the email is real and said the intention is to eliminate unfair descriptions – name, gender, age, or race – for base awards and performance reports “so that all members had a fair and equal chance at winning.”
The email says the gender-neutral directive comes directly from U.S. Pacific Air Forces, headquartered in Hawaii. USPAF commands approximately 32,000 airmen – if that term is still allowed – whose F-15, F-16, and F-22 fighter jets threaten China’s stated goal to control disputed international sea routes and to eventually invade and control Taiwan.
Critics of the Pentagon's left-wing indoctrination keep warning it is dangerous because it replaces combat readiness with a stringent, Marxist-like ideology, but the email incredibly suggests that embracing a gender-neutral policy improves that readiness. “Welcoming and employing varied perspectives from a foundation of mutual respect,” the email states, “will improve our interoperability, efficiency, creativity, and lethality.”
AFN reported in an August story that a year-long wargaming exercise that imagines a U.S.-China war over Taiwan often concludes with two U.S. carriers sunk, putting as many as 10,000 sailors in the water.
Approximately 500 aircraft are lost according to each tabletop exercise, too, and some of those would presumably be bombers and fighters from Andersen.
Reacting to the USPAF email, former air force missile officer Gordon Klingenschmitt says the military is being attacked from within with insane transgender ideology, which he says is hurting both morale and readiness.
“They're doing it under the guise of inclusiveness and diversity, and they say inclusion and diversity are going to increase our lethality,” he warns. “Well, that is the opposite of the truth."
If his warning is true, you wouldn’t know that from the Air Force itself. The spokesman for Andersen told the Beacon that “diversity and inclusion are force multipliers and warfighting imperatives that enable our competitive advantage against near-peer adversaries.”
A national security expert told the Beacon it is “painful” to imagine Air Force personnel are spending their time working on pronoun usage instead of figuring out how to defeat China in a future war in the Pacific.
