Does The Homosexual/Lesbian Minority Now Dictate The Terms In The ADF?
During the recent headlines about questionable conduct of ADF personnel I made comment that since the mid to late 60’s the three defence forces have seen a deterioration of standards, discipline and general conduct brought about by pressure from minority activists, political correctness, and blatant stupidity by politicians and senior command of what is now known collectively as the Australian Defence Forces.
Long held conventions that bind a fighting force together are discipline and respect for Commissioned, Non-Commissioned Officers, and each other. Understanding those principles is paramount. Without respect discipline declines, members lose direction and morale is damaged.
This raises the thorny question about homosexual/lesbian personnel and the manner in which they are afforded preferential treatment to the exclusion of other members. Chief of the Defence Forces, General David Hurley, leaves us in no doubt that attitudes toward diversity within the ADF must change with the times. He goes as far as saying, ”Marching in uniform (at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras) evokes a great sense of pride in the history of the Australian Military. It also carries significant responsibility to honour the uniform and all that it represents.”
No Sir, General Hurley, it does not! For many, especially older ex-service members, it evokes offence, embarrassment and revulsion. Not because homosexuals and lesbians are now allowed in the defence forces, but because they are overtly preferred to the detriment of other personnel and their beliefs. In pursuit of PC the pendulum of has swung too far.
