This younger generation lacks incentive, and initiative, and would teach men to be real men. It would also teach them to put country first, and they wouldn't be so entitled.
Completely agree, unfortunately close to half of those men would be screaming blue murder before setting foot at the training camp over the fact you assumed their pronoun.

Might be fun to watch a few of them get dressed down by their Company Commander at Boot Camp. :biggrin:

Then get their hair shaved off etc, etc.

In boot camp, the drill sergeant would straighten out the pronouns, loudly and clearly.

We have to get back to the answer "and your point is ?"

"The Staff Sergeant wasn't nice to me and he yelled at me." - "Oh really, well I know how to fix that. Come with me..... do 100 push ups and then run around the parade square 25 times with this rifle held over your head, you'll feel much better."

Don't forget the buckets of sand on each end of that rifle. (I have seen it in person. And luckily it wasn't me!)

Boot camp would probably make one hell of a funny reality program, follow a similar program as the Swiss.
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

Guessing either you served in the CAF, or your kids played strange games at birthday parties.
