Navy Will Inspect Its Bathrooms for ‘Degrading’ Images of Women
Cybercast News Service ^ | June 18, 2013 - 5:16 AM | Elizabeth Harrington

In line with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s order for troops to have their workplaces searched for “degrading or offensive” materials—part of an attempt to curb sexual assault in the military—the Navy will inspect even its bathrooms.

While what’s degrading or offensive is open to interpretation, the material can include song lyrics and “inappropriate cartoons.”

In a memo sent on June 13, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus ordered that all sailors, Marines, cadets and civilian employees have their workplaces searched by June 28.

Thank heavens! I was afraid they were going to check the heads.

If there is anything mounted on the bulkheads we don't have a sexism problem, we have an inspection problem. BTT

First of all, the Navy doesn’t have “bathrooms”. And the next guy to use that term gets thrown out that little round window...

Every one now have a problem with normal behavior.

Oh thank God they are cracking down on that...we wouldn’t want to have a senior military member diddling a 21 year old intern in the oral office or anything...that would be wrong, wrong I tell ya. Oh wait, isn’t that a personal matter or was it a private matter. WoW! Those dumbocrats are geniuses, they can find a problem everywhere but their own pants...

There was a report that alleged that there were “thousands” of sexual assaults in the military last year. I think they largely pulled the number out of their asses.

But why the report? Is this a homosexual agenda initiative or a disabling the military initiative -- oh, wait, I guess those are the same things.

Amazing how quickly he has managed to wussify even the armed forces.

Relentlessly the left has succeeded in taking over every institutions - even the military and sports.

When the new manager of the Pine Bend Refinery arrived at St. Paul back in ‘89, the first thing he did was order all such calenders removed from the plant. The refinery had many female engineers and chemists on staff.
This improved morale amongst the ladies and the guys really didn't miss the pin-ups.
The sales office got the word pretty quick. I put up a great coal company calender. Another guy had a calender from Potlatch Paper, featuring a Canadian Mountie.
This set in motion a search for the most exclusive or obscure calender it was possible to find.

Sure, right after we bounce him off the “walls”, the “floor”, the “ceiling” and make him fall down the “stairs” a couple of times. After all that we'll toss him out the “door.”

Gub'mnt quarters ~ there is no art ~ however, with respect to civilian personnel working for the federal government the Supreme Court has carved out a zone of privacy such that a complainant can be charged with all sorts of things and hauled away.

That way the office lady thug doesn't get to push you around for having a messy desk.

The data showed a 20% in male on male sexual assaults. That means that Obama's efforts to improving gay living conditions in the military is paying off ~ for them!

The Navy here is attempting to divert our attention from the real facts ~ the skyrocketing homosexual rape attacks!
