to not take herself
"You also hve to remember, the only reason you hve the freedom to even say something like that, is because he does what he does. Or youd be walking 5 paces behind me not allowed to speak unless spoken to. I just baffles me"
i’m sorry that you’re offended but i honestly cannot support a system that systematically kills and imprisons millions of innocent people including women and children all over the world. it’s not just a work uniform it’s a fucking lifestyle it’s a career choice that i will not stand behind no matter what. not to mention the amount of sexual assault/abuse that happens WITHIN the military. “in 2010, 108,121 veterans screened positive for military sexual trauma, and 68,379 had at least one Veterans Health Administration outpatient visit for related conditions. Also in 2010, The Department of Defense processed reports of 3,198 new assaults but estimated the actual number of assaults to be closer to 19,000. However, these reports only resulted in convictions against 244 perpetrators.” that’s taken from the documentary “The Invisible War”. Those statistics are american but they’re shocking and disgusting and could be easily comparable to the Canadian military as well. you think all of that makes me want to go on a date with someone who’s pictures are him in full military uniform posing with assault rifles?
i’m not a blind patriot i’m not gonna sit here and praise men in the military in 2014. what kind of bullshit are you talking about- because of what he does i don’t have to walk behind you and not speak unless spoken to? what are you even talking about. what has the military done to protect my rights as a woman? what has the military done to protect my rights as a QUEER woman? what has the military done other than entice fear whenever we see a muslim person or any person of colour for that matter.
It’s 2014- the military isn’t protecting me, the military is creating conflict in other countries around the world. the military is the most corrupt part of the government. the military hides statistics and manipulates the media to believe anything their agenda wants us to see. the american military’s agenda is anti-muslim, racist, sexist, disgusting.
so no, being in this uniform doesn’t make you just like everyone else. it means you’re actively participating in this system. you’re participating in the deaths and sexual assaults of millions of people. you’re part of it. so like, i’m not just gonna be chill about it and i don’t even have to justify who i choose to date or interract with on a fucking dating website but i just wanted to let you know what i think about the military.
