Women in the Military: A Gross Social Experiment
Dec 12, 2008 - 12:21:23 AM
I served in the US Navy for nearly nine years. I joined the Navy because I wanted to leave home and see the world; and because my single mother and I did not get along.
When I was 17, my mother and I signed the enlistment papers and at 18, after waiting in the delayed entry program, I was off to boot camp by way of the Military Entrance Processing Station. It was after my physical exam at MEPS that I was offered my first package of birth control pills without having to ask.
I learned that sexual immorality was accepted and expected.
In nearly three months of boot camp I learned how to march, was made to get up at wee hours of the morning, learned to cuss “like a sailor,” and to determine by casual observance those who were lesbians and those who were straight.
I learned that sexual perversion was prevalent but protected.
My class “A” school was full of young people away from home for the first time, many of whom got married after knowing each other only a few weeks or months.
You could hear instructors voicing frustration at the number of marriages that were occurring almost every weekend. Sadly, no one ever taught a General Military Training class about how young women would naturally want emotional security after being away from home for the first time and going to school on a base full of men. But we received plenty of training on STDs and how one should use a condom so as not to contract AIDS on the beach from unscrupulous men who prey on young women.
I learned that women desire husbands, are often lead by emotions, and that promiscuity was considered normal while purity was not worthy of mention.
My first overseas duty station found me in mixed male and female company during indoctrination, where we were told by the "health counselor" that we should be wary and make sure we had condoms handy. The condoms were then freely dispersed for the taking. And if one got pregnant, there were places she could go to get rid of the "problem."
I learned that though we were in service to protect a nation, murder in the womb is an acceptable practice when one's career is at stake.
The duty station was in a very beautiful part of the world and the “scuttlebutt,” or rumor, was that girls, military and civilian alike, were leaving with suitcases full of cash. This cash was profit from operating a little “business on the side.” I learned that, right before my arrival, a high-ranking officer had been relieved of duty because of an affair he had been having with an enlisted sailor.
Any off duty night on the beach would find both soldiers and sailors making “movies.” Meanwhile, it was not uncommon for married men to initiate relationships with females at work. Ten or more hours a day in mixed company is more temptation that many will or are able to bear, especially when their spouses are half a world away.
More than one weekend party found a young enlisted woman assaulted or taken advantage of because of drunkenness in mixed company.
I learned that marital fidelity was not the norm, adultery was expected, women were left unprotected and, as a result, often preyed upon--and if you’re not asked, you don’t have to tell.
It was not difficult nor was it long before I found myself caught up in a life of immorality even as I pledged to honorably defend my country.
The military has become a subculture which reflects the immoral culture and twisted values of our present culture.
It is absurd for women to expect any organization to “respect” their roles as mothers and wives, and even be treated with dignity as women, when these same women have volunteered to act in the same capacity as men.
It is shameful for men who serve in the military to allow their wives and daughters to leave home in the same capacity, leaving their children potential orphans and allowing these wives and daughters to work in an environment where femininity is not exalted or honored, but degraded and trampled upon.
Through God’s mercy and grace, I have learned that to be a woman is a blessing and a privilege and to be called to marriage and motherhood is the highest honor.
I do not condemn my sisters in Christ who serve in the military, but I do ask them to examine themselves and the role God has created for them using the standard of Scripture alone and to leave the feminist lies behind.
