Air Force tells cadets to use 'gender neutral language,' no more 'mom' and 'dad,' in diversity training
In another slide, the presentation claimed that diversity and inclusion training is a critical factor in "developing warfighters" to be "prepared to lead the USAF/USSF with character."

The United States Air Force Academy in Colorado has been revealed to have implemented diversity trainings that include telling cadets to use gender-neutral language and drop the word "colorblind."

In a slideshow titled, "Diversity & Inclusion: What it is, why we care, & what we can do," obtained by Fox News, the school tells its Air Force cadets to use "person-centered" and gender-neutral language when describing people.

"Person-centered" language tells cadets to format their speech centering around the individual, for example, "transgender people/service members" instead of "transgenders," or "people with disabilities," instead of "the disabled."

When addressing a person, the training tells cadets "when in doubt" of what a person calls themselves, to "ask" the person.

The training also tells cadets to use gender-neutral words to address a group or person, like "y’all/team/squaddies/everyone/folks," instead of "you guys," or "partner" instead of boyfriend or girlfriend.

"Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,'" the presentation states. "Use words that include all genders: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’" ...

Wonder how longer the anger is going to build before it boils over and gets ugly?
I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

The they/them army is going to lose its shit and demand triage from a battlefield psychiatrist the instant a Chinese commander misgenders them over a loudspeaker.
