Pilots must consider feminist theory before dropping bombs

You will not believe this.

Ok, given today’s circumstances, you might not be surprised at all.

Actually, considering the Army referenced Xena the Warrior Princess and comic book characters to justify calls for female infantry and the Navy proudly boasted that its sailors were painting their fingernails pink last year, you’ve probably been expecting this to drop any day.

So here goes: the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) now has official doctrine that requires pilots to consider feminism and feminist theory before going to war.

But wait, there’s more: the Australian Defence Force (ADF) now has 135 qualified ‘Gender Advisors’ and they are being deployed on operations.

Gender in Air Operations was published by the RAAF’s Air Power Development Centre in June 2018 and contains this helpful information in the foreword by Air Commodore Stephen Edgeley:

Chief of Air Force is committed to incorporating and mainstreaming a gender perspective and the UNSCR1325 and related resolutions (UNSCR1325+) agenda across Air Force. I intend to enhance Air Force’s operational capability through integrating a gender perspective into Air Force’s doctrine to inform individual and collective training and the planning and conduct of operations.

And so now the cat is out of the bag: our military’s insane pursuit of politically-correct feminist agendas is being driven by the United Nations.

But, to be fair to the UN, not even UNSCR1325 demands that nations like Australia plunge head first off the idiot cliff. We’re choosing to do that all by ourselves.

The key section of UNSCR 1325 states:

  1. Urges Member States to ensure increased representation of women at all decision-making levels in national, regional and international institutions and mechanisms for the prevention, management, and resolution of conflict;

And from these 29 words feminist activists in Australia have basically revolutionised the entire ADF to the point that women are now preferred over men when it comes to recruitment, retention, promotion and postings as I detail in this exclusive series of articles.

They’ve also radically distorted our warfighting doctrine to the point that we are basically not interested in winning wars anymore. This is straight out of Gender in Air Operations:

For example, if the military target is a bridge in a community that is being used as a main route by the enemy to transport weapons, this same bridge may also provide the only route for the local population to gather supplies such as water and firewood. Although destroying this target may provide a military advantage against the enemy, the second order effect may mean that, due to the gendered social roles, women need to travel further afield, on unfamiliar and less secure, well-known or well-lit routes to gather water and firewood.

Who knew that the RAAF could best help vulnerable women by not bombing the bad guys?

The madness in this document is so profound that pilots must now navigate feminism and feminist theory before taking off. Apparently, it is also important that they understand the difference between sex and gender before they engage in aerial combat.

These graphics are taken straight out of Gender in Air Operations:

It’s only a matter of time before military planners must designate transgender ‘safe spaces’ on their battle maps. But I’m fairly certain that the enemy will then roll their tanks right through them.

Hey, we might not win the war but at least we’ll be remembered fondly by Bruce, the confused woman.

It would be bad enough if the ADF was tokenistically throwing a bone to the feminists with the odd press release and International Women’s Day photo op. But it’s gone far beyond some Canberra PR stunt and has infected our operational capabilities.

‘Gender Advisors’ are now being sent off to war.

I have no idea what Gender Advisors do. And I bet they don’t either. In fact, they even say they don’t know. This is what Captain Stacey Porter, Royal Australian Navy, recently wrote for the Australian Strategic Policy Institute:

The course teaches participants that gender analysis is the linchpin of the gender adviser’s modus operandi, but I think we still haven’t cracked what gender analysis can provide for us operationally. How do we make gender analysis more operationally relevant, particularly to mission commanders and planners and in intelligence analysis?

Here’s a hint: you can’t make gender analysis operationally relevant.

And here’s another hint: a week-long gender advisor course will never provide anything of any military use. But it might start World War Three as transgender feminists and lesbians duke it out over what it means to be a lady.

The entire purpose of this course has nothing to do with winning wars and everything to do with creating politically-correct operational postings for women. And that means that this course doesn’t help. It hurts.

In fact, these artificially created roles only distract from real issues by creating pretend ones.

Hence we should not be surprised at all the Captain Porter is also banging the climate change drum:

Gender analysis is still maturing at HQJOC, where I’m responsible for mainstreaming the gender perspective right across the headquarters as the senior gender adviser. In my view, and drawing on my experience as a deployed gender adviser in Afghanistan in 2016 and 2017, we need to assess each mission from a civilian-centric, theatre-of-operations perspective that includes examining the relationships between armed conflict, the roles of women and men, and factors that we’ve traditionally overlooked, such as climate change.

Thanks to gender advisors we now know that the problems in the Middle East and Afghanistan are due to the weather.

Heaven help us all – especially if our nation is threatened over the next decade. Because that is probably how long it will take for the ADF to refocus on warfighting even if this insanity is scrapped today…


This information was also published in today’s Daily Telegraph which has an audience far beyond the reach of this website.

I would like to thank you for your support since 2013, especially those Defence members who risk their jobs to speak with me.

Without your support and this courage, this story and many others would never have reached the mainstream media. I believe that we are having an impact, building public awareness and creating pressure that will eventually see this politically-correct madness end.

  1. Here I was thinking that this would have all been worked out before the fighter bombers left the ground. Surely the decision to bomb the bridge or not would have been made by the intelligence service etc. So that decision would be taken out of the pilots hands. They are not paid to think, just to fly and do what they are told

  2. So, while they are worrying about blowing up the bridge, what happens when they get shot out of the sky, I suppose there will be a feminist outcry that they should not be flying planes in the first place and that the men should be flying these dangerous missions, can*t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.

  3. The Modern West is so rotten and degenerate it lacks even the basic self preservation instincts, instead elevating Post Modernist liberal stupidity and feminine vanity to a de facto state religion. Mark my words if there is a war with Russia or China, the West’s technology or wealth can’t save it.
    Prepare accordingly.

  6. Seeing the above sickening material linked to in another forum reminded me to send a small donation, which I have not done so for a while.

    It must be difficult at times to keep fighting this sick nonsense, but the effort is appreciated.

    Thank you Mr. Gaynor.

  7. The Wikipedia entry (and its 128 citations) on the use of human shields in warfare demonstrates how little some societies are concerned about Australian ‘feminist theory’.

    Guaranteed, their ‘feminist theory’ will ensure women and children will be stationed on every bridge.

  8. It sounds like Hillary Clinton’s statement that women are the primary victims of war. My impression of the above is that it is OK to kill as many men and boys as you want but do not make women uncomfortable as you are doing it.

  9. Bernard, I just love this little anecdote;

    Nobody has a “right” to serve in the Military.
    What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer?
    Very far from it.
    The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.
    Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth.
    Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms?
    Hear voices in your head? Self-identify as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can’t run the required course in the required time? Can’t do the required number of push-ups? Not really a “morning person” and refuse to get out of bed before noon?
    All can be reasons for denial.
    The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability.
    Did someone just scream “That isn’t Fair”? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.
    YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. NOT the other way around.
    I say again: You don’t change the Military… you must change yourself.
    The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.
    If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality… Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavours.

  12. “The Daily Telegraph story this week, advising us that air force personnel had to take local women into consideration for example, in determining whether to bomb a bridge or not, is ludicrous.”

    “Ludicrous” is putting it mildly.
    All the enemy has to do (and Islamic fanatics such as Hamas would have absolutely no qualms about it) is to station females (whether captives or friendly) in and around any potential target and voila! problem solved.

    • Lee, Islamic fundamentalists & terrorists are already well known for sheltering behind women & children, even whilst firing on enemy soldiers. Soldiers wear uniforms & are easily identified from civilians because of this. Islamic fundamentalists & terrorists don’t wear uniforms so they can easily hide amongst the civilian population before, during & after attacks on military & civilians. This has always been the problem with wars throughout the Middle East & Western Asia.

  13. The biggest question we all need to ask is – what can we do to stop all this sickening nonsense? My generation may not live long enough to see the end results – but what about the children of today – their minds will be so twisted by all the ‘political correctness’ being forced on them from the tender age of 3 – they will know no better and therefore unable to teach their children anything different. As well as Prayer and sacrifice is there nothing else we can do? I am sure the majority of Australians are thinking much the same as those reading Bernard’s articles – so why are we not being heard?

    • I simply cannot believe this. I actually thought it was a joke!!! My father, my grandfather, my husbands grandfathers all fought in the World Wars. I am a FEMALE – I served in the RAAF, my husband served in the RAAF as did my brother. Some of these women’s groups need to be very careful, they are pushing ‘equality’ too far. The Forces are used to train their personnel to protect their Country. Wars are fought to be won, to protect our lifestyle and let us live in PEACE. The way we are going, we will have to ask permission from the enemy to see if they will let us try to take them over between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm Monday to Friday. God help us, because it seems the Forces will not be able to!!!!!!!!

  14. Hmmm, don’t worry if you lose the war (therefore destroying the country as we know it for the entire population), just as long as you don’t make any women from the country we are at war with have to walk further for supplies or suffer any form of inconvenience.

  16. This whole issue simply beggars belief. We have seen already where the brave Muslim fighters in the middle east use women and children as human shields (in fact that was one of the tricks used in the Iraq/Iran war – that our military would bend over to this type of blackmail is beyond comprehension.
    From the troops perspective they would be much safer by failing to drop bombs and firing rifles (this would please the beancounters as savings would go straight to the bottom line) in that there would be no charges laid for collateral damage.Of course the next issue to be raised by the armchair warriors would be, why did you fail to carry out your mission – really smacks of Catch 22.
    We would be better served by cancelling the purchase of the F35 and the new submarines because they will not be utilised in their primary role.
    I am so glad I am no longer in the RAAF.

  18. The pilots must also consider that:-

    Our enemy,Islam, in fact the enemy of the 75% of the world that they have not yet subjugated are taught by the mothers from birth to hate and kill us!

    You must all remember at least one one instance when a Muslim woman said she was happy to have at least one of her sons martyred!

    In case you can’t remember here is just one of many:-

  19. Consider feminist theory before dropping bombs? That would serve only to encourage bombs to be dropped, in the hope that some feminists would be blown into the hereafter.

  20. I think ADF gender theory is internally contradictory.
    1. Men and women are equal! Gender is a construct.
    2. Men and women are not equal! Women need employment quotas.
    3. Men and women are not equal! Women need special protection in wars.

  21. These “gender advisors” remind me of the political commissars attached to Soviet units during WWII.
    I trust that if captured by a future enemy, that they don’t meet the same fate as many of the commissars captured by the Germans during the war did – shot out of hand.

  22. Bernard, this topic is a circus but what about the more central issue of the monopoly power ideology, methods, forces and agencies that have generated the trade and military conflicts and destruction effecting many tens of millions of largely innocent peoples about the globe.
    In essence we are confronting that very long standing psychological warfare that the Kings of all ages have employed to keep the peasants hoodwinked, distracted and fighting each other while the rulers proceed with the systemic looting and inequality justified by layers of black magic tricks that the public swallow through regular indoctrination from birth to death.
    Granted the “gender” debate is a plank of the controlling method of the monopoly policy towards managing the public fears and limits of free speech, but our society needs honest full explanations of free speech erosion in all it’s full dimensions and motivations.
    Many hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost, many millions permanently maimed physically and mentally, tens of millions robbed of their economic life and homes, and yet the never ending fraudulent war on terror proceeds and very few are brave or honest enough to stand up and stop these crimes conducted by monopoly cabals for profit and power.
    How well educated would you believe yourself on the full political power and economic dynamics of the world and what titles would you nominate as competently representing your full understanding of our present human condition?

  23. After reading this absolute rubbish I am glad I am at the last stage of my life and won’t have to see a world of absolute lunacy. I do not know how reason can be overtaken by these weird ideas or how a government can let it happen. Unfortunately anyone who disagrees with reason is under threat of breaking the law with the stupid political correctness that is rampant.

    To avoid this then why don’t the “believers” just hand over all the countries to the war mongers and let them take over as we are all going to be disposed off with no fight back

  24. But will the pop up data in the pilot’s visor tell the “She-he-ite” pilot whether the target is vegan, or halal or gender neutral before engaging with the enemy. For that matter, is the enemy “Really the enemy” and shouldn’t the pilot have that “Conversation” first?

  27. Bernard, thank you for your tireless work in once again highlighting the ludicrous direction our once great nation is now heading. The Daily Telegraph article – to which you refer – and its growing list of reader’s comments all strongly support your significant concerns.

      • Interesting but I cannot post to my Facebook.
        Does anyone else hav3 that issue or is it just my iPad?

      • Bernard, thank you for fighting for all of us who care about Australia!
        As I see it, there is a big danger that no serviceman or woman in any service, Army, Navy or Air Force will be prepared to fight at all – even in open war – because if non-combatants were killed – or worse, women non-combatants were killed in the action of battle, the Australian service personnel engaged in the action could be prosecuted for murder or some other charge.

        Just a couple of years ago, an Australian army person faced such charges after a Middle Eastern action in which children were unfortunately killed in the crossfire. Some Australian zealot determined that the soldier had a case to answer, but the judge threw it out on the grounds of it being collateral damage.

        The Daily Telegraph story this week, advising us that air force personnel had to take local women into consideration for example, in determining whether to bomb a bridge or not, is ludicrous.

        That is fairies at the bottom of the garden, stuff.

        Take WWII, when the allies were blowing up bridges to prevent the mighty German Panzer tanks (which could out-gun all the US and the British tanks invented to that date and had much better armament) from crossing the Rhine and other key rivers in the war zone, such hesitation could cost thousands of Allied lives, or worse, the actual war!

        What has happened to our defence chiefs? Have they been taken over by Aliens from outer space?

        Possibly they are too young to have been in combat themselves.

        Have they not read “The Knights of Bushido”? Have they not read the stories of World War II?

        Of the bombing of London; of the bombing of Moscow and Berlin; of Dresden, which was wiped off the map in the 1,000-planes bomber raids to appease Stalin; of Tokyo by Doolittle’s brave American squad who knew they were probably flying to their deaths?

        And what about our Federal government?

        Are they going to stand by and neuter the defence forces today, in the same way that the Victorian government neutered its police force a couple of years ago?

        But, back to my first paragraph: why would any personnel, male or female or somewhere in between, risk being prosecuted for murder by his or her or its own Government when fighting in open war?

        Far better to sit in the bottom of the trench and play cards than risk being shot dead by either side.

        In WWII, the British had “The Man Who Never Was”, a commissioned officer who died from pneumonia, whose body was used to fool the Germans into thinking that the invasion of France would be launched at the narrowest part of the English Channel.

        In WWIII, we’ll have the men and women who never were, declining to fight on the grounds of incriminating themselves!

        Whoever thought that a shooting war was like Tiddlywinks? Just a parlour game?

        What with the false “climate change” epidemic sweeping Australia and the world; with our saviour alleged to be an electric car (when extension cords are way too short); with the REAL saviour, coal, being left IN the ground, it could well be the trigger for another country to invade us for our precious oil and coal of which we have an abundance.

        Dust off those ping pong sets and challenge ‘em for a game, winner take all, because anything else we have to defend the country has lost its balls.
