Joe Biden’s joke of a Pentagon is now requiring “they/them” so-called “pronouns” on all applications for service medals, making a mockery of the U.S. military.
The change to the Manual of Military Decorations and Awards took effect on Aug. 7, off this year.
It was noticeably imposed last week on an award suggested to be bestowed on the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, four-star Army Gen. Mark Milley.
Milley’s paperwork refers to the Gen. as “themself” instead on “himself.”
The lunacy appears on page 49 of the citation:
Superior Meritorious Service (e.g., PCS and Retirement awards): (Rank) First M. Last, Jr., United States (Military Service), distinguished themself by superior meritorious service in a position of significant responsibility as (position and duty assignment), from (month year) to (month year).
Per the Daily Signal:
The revised rules, found in Department of Defense Manual 1348.33, Volume 4, will apply to the most prestigious joint awards given by the Department of Defense, including the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Joint Service Achievement Medal, and the Joint Meritorious Unit Award.
Aside from the fact that the use of the pronoun “themself” is grammatically incorrect and just plain stupid sounding, it is insulting to every service man and service women in the armed forces.
There are two sexes: male and female. When a member of the U.S. armed forces earns a military decoration or award, he or she deserves to be recognized in that member’s official citation by the pronoun “he” or “she,” not some woke, grammatically incorrect pronoun demanded by elitist Biden administration apparatchiks.
Biden is absolutely destroying our military.
