"MANNISH" FEMALE COLONEL FIRED FOR "SEXUAL HARASSMENT" OF A "SENIOR MALE OFFICER" - TERRI ERDAG DUMPED AS C.O. OF USMC COMBAT SERVICE SUPPORT SCHOOL AT CAMP JOHNSON, N.C. - "I ALWAYS THOUGHT SHE WAS A DYKE - GLAD TO SEE I WAS WRONG" SAYS MARINE WHO SERVED UNDER HER

We don't care if Col. Terri Erdag, the very mannish-looking female Marine officer, is a lesbian or not. And anyway, Obama did away with DADT finally (it's an election year, don't you know?). So what's the big deal?
Well, it's kind of like "man bites dog" when you read a Marine Corps press release stating the colonel has been fired from her job as commanding officer of Combat Service Support Schools in part, because she may have "sexually-harassed" what is described as a "senior male officer."
You mean we are to believe the never-married, very "butch" colonel "came on to" perhaps a colonel or general "guy" who felt so threatened by the experience that he filed a formal complaint?
From what some of our readers say, all bets would be, if Erdag got her ass in a sling over sex charges, it wouldn't involve a (gasp!) "man."
TOUGH FEMALE COLONEL CAME "UP FROM THE RANKS"
C. R. of Illinois wrote in to the Military TIMES discussion board as follows: "I always thought she was a dyke. Glad to see I was wrong." The Marine veteran said he had served under Erdag at Camp Smith.
It's got to be an embarrassment when you're even more masculine-looking than "Horrible Holly Graf." But all indications we have, are that Erdag's a good Marine. In fact, she rose through the ranks. At one time, the tough "fifty-something" gal was a USMC buck sergeant and aviation mechanic. Erdag was commissioned a 2LT back in the 1980's.
She not only served in the first Gulf War, but has been deployed in recent years to both Afghanistan and Iraq.
While we wait for more juicy details of the allegations, all we have now is the Corps saying the colonel's firing was due "to a loss of confidence in her leadership and ability to maintain a positive command climate." Those are the words of Brig. Gen. Niel Nelson, boss of the USMC Training Command.
If any of our many Marine readers out there have an idea who the offended "senior male officer" is, please e-mail us your guess ASAP and we'll let you know if you're right, once we get the scoop. Thanks.
What is so strange about this? Women higher ups in the business world hit on lower level men all the time.
What is the difference when male officers hit up women officers in the military..been going on for decades.
Why Hell Yes, Women today are NOT going to let the men have all the FUN. . . . .
Let me be the first to say, Guilty!
I didn't know Orel Hershiser was in the Marines.
A Quinn Martin production?
That’s a Founder from the Gamma Quadrant
Chamge of heart in da pants?
Or as Benny Hill put it, “A Quinn Marton, Barton, Harton, Larton & Fargo Production”
Orel Hershiser! ROFLMAO!
I knew she reminded me of someone I had seen before! It was bugging me until I came to your post. Thanks.
I don’t ever recall jumping back in my chair like I just did after scrolling down a webpage.
Beauty like that wasted in uniform?
Orel Hershheiser. LOL! Made me laugh BIG BIG TIME!
Beauty like that wasted in uniform?
Her haircut looks like Moe Howard’s, excepting that Moe’s was straight across the forehead.
He was a great pitcher though. He did wonders for the Dodgers (That’s ‘Doyers’ in L.A. Hispanicspeak)
I cannot begin to count the number of times Kate Upton has dealt with me in a similar fashion.
Dykes put the penis envy in the feminazi movement. Now that they are “out of the closet” in the military, the Dyke insanity will go nucelar. Their who idenity is shaped around their gay sexuality - wishing they were a man and jealously and hatred toward real men - and it’s twisted, baby!
Its probably some guy whose been hitting on women for years and got away with it...
Now he claims a woman hit on him ...
OK Muzzies . . . here is one of your 72 virgins . . . .
I find this whole write-up offensive.
Here is a woman who from all appearances has dedicated her life to the Marine Corps. The fact that her appearance is "mannish" means exactly what?? That she acted offensively to some other officer - fine - she deserves her punishment.
I'm guessing however, that most of you panty-waistes that are cutting her down could not have walked a half-mile in her shoes.
Get a grip fellow FReepers. Why are we wasting our vitriol on this homely Marine? My bet is that were any of you injured, she wouldn't think twice about doing a fireman-carry to safety for any of you sad pukes. In another age she'd probably be mother to a race of warriors.
Seems we ought to have better things to do with our time & efforts...
"Feeling threatened" is not the only reason for filing a "sexual harassment" complaint. Unprofessional conduct of a sexual nature which is corrosive to an effective workplace environment, corrosive to unit morale or seriously offensive to one or more individuals is grounds for such a complaint.
I always wondered if Orel was glad his last name wasn’t Secks.
“Well, it’s kind of like “man bites dog” when you read....”
Then you see the pics, and realize it’s more of a “dog bites man” story.
She's retired military.
In her work, she is thorough, professional, highly competent, and appears to be an effective leader and manager.
Let's all recall that the “guilty/innocent” judgment (based on looks alone), that's become part of FReeper culture, started as a satirical reaction to the perceived tendency of courts to treat good looking women better than the aesthetically challenged.
Anybody that serves our country honorably WILL NEVER BE GUILTY.
keep in mind that Sexual Harassment doesn’t HAVE to mean sexual advances toward someone
it could also mean she made fun of him
maybe we was fat
or she somehow knew he had a small ‘ gun”
or maybe she knew he was gay and harassed him over that, even though she looks to be gay,
Looking at her I doubt she made sexual advances toward a straight male
Both sick and brilliant!!!
Late night TV comedy has nothing on Free Republic!
Same here! I was actually startled - a moment of cognizant dissonance.
I feel sorry for any female that has to go through life looking like that - has to be tough.
Didn’t she play Dr Evil’s female side-kick in Auston Powers?
This brave Marine has dedicated her life to the Corps and the service of her country. Thank God for her.
ER-Drag what a name for a queer! Er-drag
through life looking like that - - -
It’s somewhat a choice - possibly because her eggs are scrambled up there.
They can give themselves a softer edge with the persistent use of feminine mannerisms. Being in an aggressive occupation, it served her better to cultivate the gruff side.
PC is BS. A private reprimand would have avoided weakening the military and killing her career. Everything is now a f’n Federal Case.
Those who are too young — an old saying was ‘Don’t make a Federal Case out of it.’ was said when someone got overly twisted out of shape over a perceived injustice which was just actually a big mole hill.
Then tell him to yell "SPREAD RANKS!" at hers.
