U.S. Navy Issues Warning About ‘Male Privilege’ and How to Combat It

Just shaking my head… next comes banging it on my desk. The US Navy in its new, Progressive wisdom has officially lost its mind. The Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery has issued a warning on ‘male privilege’ and is teaching sailors how to combat it. Right. They have two charts: the “Power and Control Wheel” and the “Equality Wheel.” All of this covers men abusing women, but not the other way around it seems. Did you know there are actually more cases of women abusing men? Yep. But all of this is ridiculous. That is the purview of shrinks, counselors and therapists. Instead of teaching our soldiers to fight and strategize, we’re teaching them how to be politically correct. We’re doomed.

From The American Mirror:

The United States Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery has issued a warning about “male privilege” and is teaching ways to combat it.

The agency has issued two charts, the “Power and Control Wheel” and the “Equality Wheel,” in a new document posted on the Navy’s website.

Power and Control

The wheel lists “common phrases victims use when describing their abuse,” which includes “male privilege,” the Social Memo reports.

The “male privilege” portion of the Power and Control Wheel includes these examples:

  • Treating her list a servant”
  • “Making all the big decisions”
  • “Acting like the ‘master of the castle’”
  • Being the one to define men’s and women’s roles”

The narrative document lists these stereotypical examples of “male privilege:”

  • “He refuses to pick up milk on his way home because it’s ‘women’s work.’”
  • “When he came home yesterday, he was driving a brand new truck. I told him we needed something the whole family could fit in, but he didn’t listen to me.”
  • “He doesn’t mind his friends being at the house at all hours of the night, but he says my Sunday brunch friends talk too much and are no longer welcome.”

As Social Memo points out, the Navy’s document appears to only address physical and sexual violence perpetrated by men.

A 2012 study by Bert H. Hoff, J.D. found “More men than women were victims of intimate partner physical violence within the past year, according to a national study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and U.S. Department of Justice.”

Hoff’s research found that in the 12 months prior to the study’s release, “an estimated 5,365,000 men and 4,741,000 women were victims of intimate partner physical violence.” That’s 53% and 47% respectively.

Instead of trying to have men please women and not offend them, how about we get back to killing bad guys and saving the free world? Hmmm? This is the active undermining of the military at play. It does nothing to help sailors work in and support our Navy. It does weaken our service people though – both in their own eyes and everyone else’s. It’s a very bad, sick joke. One commenter said, “…end the left’s exploitation of fictional ‘privileges’ that only serve to expand their power while breaking down the fabric of our society.” That’s exactly right. If I were in the military, I would make sure I found a way to also be combat ready no matter how much crap they threw my way. You can’t keep a patriotic warrior down forever. Actually, I don’t know why the military stands for this crap or how long they will continue to do so. Enough of the diversity and sensitivity training – that seems to be all that Marxists know how to do. That’s not what the Navy’s about and never has been.
