U.S. Army's "Walk a Mile In Her Shoes": "I don't want Islam to see this"

Gavin McInnesArchive

Now American soldiers are walking down the street in high heel shoes to “raise awareness” about how hard it is to be a woman.

Why don't we talk about how hard it is to be a man instead -- especially a man who's going overseas to fight Muslims who stone women to death?

And who maybe comes back missing an arm and confined to a wheelchair, like one guy I'll introduce you to...

Are you as angry about this as I am? Speak out in the comments!

That is so awful. Just terrible. I barely wear heels, which is sad because I guess men think they’re very feminine. I should consider wearing them more, because it would give me more of a chance to dance and walk in bare feet. That would just cancel the heels idea out and it would be better if I wore ballet flats all night. I like flats and change is hard and sometimes unnecessary. Some ideas suck really bad. This and heels are two of them.

Ladies – I am a long in the tooth happily married guy.

I did 5 tours over seas. Every time I left I jumped on an airplane all by myself and flew to a war zone. Every time I came home it was to a quiet airport, grabbed a cab and went home. No fan fare and no fancy send offs or welcomes.

The last time I was dropped in Edmonton at 0200 – had to stand outside in the parking lot for a couple of hours when they closed the terminal to do whatever it was they were doing – got on an airplane at 0700 and flew home.

No one seemed to worry about me other than family.

I wish some woman would do a ruck march and then go and play on a two way rifle range for a few days.

Let women be women and let men be men.

Do we really have to worry about someone’s foot wear.

I just did my duty as I PROMISED I would do.

So anyways – I am tired of it all.

Like many men of today, I just want the ladies to leave me alone and get on with YOUR lives.

Sounds bitter when I read it but it is really how I think and feel.

Liza – yeah, just as absurd a suggestion as that I belong at the cbc. Get it now?

JOAN ABERNETHY,Shouldn’t you be over commenting at the CBC?

Hey Liza – your anonymous source “felt pressured”?

Oh boo hoo. What’s he going to do when ISIS chops his hand off? Complain anonymously on social media? He’s probably “disgruntled” because he didn’t even make first cut.

The military doesn’t want whiny, entitled complainers. Under conditions of real oppression, which being asked to support gender equity is not, they are a dangerous liability.

And what’s with the “Terry and you” nonsense? Terry and I are individuals, not some cabal.

Liza, I twisted nothing. In fact, I’m rubber and you are glue.

Maybe you did not manage to read to the bottom of your own link. Even I did not think you would quote something you hadn’t read. Go back and read the whole thing. It is crystal clear, based on your own source, that the event was entrely voluntary.

Clue: when someone posts anonymously, it is usually because s/he is hiding something – like the truth.
commented 2015-04-29 16:37:05 -0400
If you managed to read to the bottom. I copied that paragraph written by a disgruntled ROTC, who felt pressured by the higher ups to volunteer, or it would look bad on their records. If you and Terry can’t get past that, fine but don’t call me a liar please. This kid said if they missed it there would be repercussions. Maybe he’s lying, maybe he’s not. Move on. You are always twisting what people post.

“Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling and a ‘does not support the battalion sharp/EO mission’ on our CDT OER for getting the branch we want. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow,” one anonymous cadet wrote on the social media sharing website Imgr, IJReview reported Monday.

Liza – okay I managed to find the article you cited. But even according to your own source, the washington times, the event was voluntary. Why lie?
commented 2015-04-29 14:48:34 -0400
“One anonymous cadet” tells you all you need to know about the credibility of your source. According to the schools, the walk was voluntary. In the first one, 15 cadets participated. You want me to disbelieve the schools, disbelieve the numbers, and instead believe some misogynist posing on social media as a military cadet? BTW your link is cache unavailable.

The walk was, and continues to be, voluntary. No oppression of whiny, entitled complainers. Just gutsy military willing to stand up and fight for gender equity in the face of our enemies’ misogyny.

Marty, like your feet aren’t positively sudsy.

Listen, the topic here is how supporting gender equity humiliates our military. I brought up Williams as an example of military behaviour that really humiliates the military.

Why don’t you take your own advice and STFU?
commented 2015-04-29 11:30:52 -0400
Very funny, and sadly very true.
commented 2015-04-29 09:10:09 -0400
Joan, I can see you are on the soapbox again, but why bring up Russel Williams?

Do you really want me to prove to you how many MORE misogynistic serial killers are NOT from any army backgrounds?

You have a cause, I get it, but please stay on topic and tone down the deception…
commented 2015-04-29 08:01:25 -0400
Liza. - do you have a link to information that shows some military who walked in heels requested to be excused from the exercise but were forced to participate?
commented 2015-04-29 07:47:30 -0400
William Gerula – amazing that women make claims and “people” believe us? Women have been persons under Canadian law for almost 100 years. Try to catch up. We are people too.

Dan Chomistek. I never said you are a misogynist. I said your attitude and view of this issue are misogynist. Condemning military because they support gender equity is a misogynist attitude because denying education, justice, equal inheritance rights, etc., to women is based on beliefs women are inherently inferior to men. Got it?

Philosophy of science involves advanced studies in physics, mathematics, formal semantics. Your mean-spirited ad homs just underline your hatred of women. Give it up.

Your condemnation of Islam does not mean you love women as love means recognizing women are equal to men and deserve protection, under law, of gender equity. Some may prefer not to stone women but to control them with money or coercion – to ceaselessly insult them with ad homs. That is also misogyny. Misogyny does not mean murder. It also means bullying and other hatred.

As to my memory, it’s photographic. A photographic memory is like a camera. You have to depress the shutter to remember what is important. I don’t care who you are; I respond to arguments not persons. That is why I don’t remember who says what. I don’t care.

Deductive reasoning is logic; they are not distinct processes.

Re. Wiki, you seem to lack all understanding of nuance. And you did not qualify which wiki articles you think are reliable. You outright condemned my use of wiki as a source for anything.

Your entire posts to me are nothing but attempts to put me down. That is very misogynist.

You don’t seem to know what intellectual means. It denotes a thinker. Someone who understands nuance.

So sailing through the middle east makes you what? An islamophiliac? That you sailed through the middle east means nothing and certainly does not mean your views aren’t misogynist.

Totalitarian governments Oppress minorities including women. Connect the dots.

No, you didn’t bring up that Russell Williams humiliated the military more than wearing heels to show solidarity with women like his victims does. I brought that up. Even though ai am a woman, I can say what zi want, whether you like it or not. You do not control what I can or cannot say. I do. Because I’m free and live under law that protects gender equity despite what you want.

My point about Williams is simple. What he did and that he did it while flying the Queen of England around, that he did it while other military and police knew he was repeatedly victimizing women, forcing entry to their homes and sexually abusing them, humiliates the military more than showing support for gender equity by walking in heels. Agree or disagree?

Isn’t it amazing how much influence (power) women have?
Isn’t it even more amazing that they claim otherwise and people believe them?

Hey Joan,
See you got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
Maybe you could help me out.
Misogynist seems to be your favorite salvo.
Want to explain why you think I’m one? Seeing as how we got into a bit of a tiff over women’s rights before?
You’ve already forgotten that I was the one who said I’d sailed through the Middle East, and was called an Islamophobe when I tried to tell people here, how women are treated like garbage over there. I kind of think, if I were misogynistic, I’d tend to be saying, "Dem Middle East guys, dey gots dis treat’n wimmens stuff down pat.

I haven’t looked up what “Philosophy” of Science and Education actually entails, but long term memory skills don’t seem to be a requirement.

Nor does logic and deductive reasoning.

First; I didn’t say all articles on Wiki were wrong. I said on social issues they’re very biased.
Second; I’m not anti-intellectual. I’m anti people who think they’re smarter than they are. Or is it Anti people who are not smart enough to realize they’re not that smart.
Third; Pro-shariah? Kindly refer to my previous statement: “I sailed through the Middle East, and was called an Islamophobe.” I can’t very well be both.
Fourth; And Fifth: Pro-communist/totalitarianism? Are you just slinging mud and seeing what sticks? I wasn’t even aware we got into world governments. Please point out how you came to those conclusions, cause I don’t seem to recall spewing any Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist, or Maoist rhetoric. You know. “Workers of the World Unite.” “Social Justice.” Bourgeoisie proletariats. (Although I don’t think those two words combined really make sense. But they sound cool. Which is good enough to fool the masses—Doh!)
Sixth; Of course I’m trying to “Attack your source” by discrediting Wikipedia. That’s how all debates go. You show how an opponent’s information is flawed or wrong, you don’t attack their character. If I say, Joan is this and Joan is that, that’s mud slinging; like your saying I’m use tactics similar to the kmer rouge, Nazis, and Islamic State. Lawyers don’t win cases by attacking the other lawyer. They win by saying, “Your defense is wrong because the source of your information, your client, is wrong. These are the laws, and this is what he did in violation of said laws. Ergo, you have nothing to back your position.”
Seventh: Ashamed of my closet endorsement of Russel Williams? Isn’t that more mud slinging. I never brought the guy up in our little back and forth here, so unless you can show how my comments endorse, or match his, aren’t you bordering on liable there?
Seventh; There’s a reason rude feminists are called FemiNazis. It’s because they adopt the Nazi tactics, or at least Brownshirt tactics, of mud slinging and brow beating.
Eighth; Just looked up Russel Williams. Skimmed through it and WOW! What a nut job. If you think any of my comments are in any way, shape or form, akin or comparable to him, then…

You scare me.

So, anyone who doesn’t agree that men being ordered ( it wasn’t a choice) to walk in heels as a show of support for women, is a spineless coward, Russell Williams apologist, blind to the corruption in the military, misogynist, unpatriotic, won’t stand up for gender equality in Canada and can’t recognise sarcasm(Jack’s education stopped at funny). I forgot Islamist pandering. And not one ad hom. (sarcasm).
Good to know.
I don’t think there were any woman storming the beaches with men in WW1. “The troops that stormed the beaches in WWII did not complain about women”.
commented 2015-04-27 18:38:45 -0400
Kelvin Grabowsky, I agree with you about the many snafu injustices our military has endured.

Women aren’t one of them. Thank goodness.

There is nothing inferior or humiliating about being a woman. That I need to say that underlines the inroads the enemy has made on the North American psyche with its stealth jihad tactics over the past fifty years.

As to the snafus, that you and all the others did your jobs regardless and did not walk out on strike like some would like to see is the reason I am so proud of our military. The day when a culture of entitlement replaces the long-standing and honourable culture of sacrifice is the day we will be defeated. The troops that stormed the beaches in WWII did not complain about women. Neither should we in today’s climate of world war. We all need to stand together behind all our freedoms, including the ideal human right of gender equity. Lest the enemy defeat us with its tyranny.

Jack, Jack, Jack, you don’t recognize sarcasm when you see it.

Guess your education stopped at funny.

Russell Williams disgraced and humiliated the military – the “higher higher” in the DND as Kelvin Grabowsky calls them – because people in his position must pass top security clearance. Someone fudged the background check to let him get promoted. A childhood friend in RCMP? Someone he had the goods on? A system boy toy?

That those all around him, including police, knew what he was up to yet did nothing to stop him is a crime. It humiliates the military because it highlights its corrupt culture.

And yes, they knew. No doubt about it. In the end Williams even shit where he ate – the pattern of break-ins and sexual crimes was all directly in his neighbourhood. He victimized his neighbours. Many of them. Police knew and the military knew and all were so self-interested in their own careers that they all told themselves it wasn’t their job to protect the women he murdered. The evil of bureaucracy, full blown, and it disgraced the military more than any heel walk ever can.

If you want to pander to the Islamist enemy – oohhh, better not annoy the mullah, he might get really mad – then oppose the heel walk as some sort of security risk. But if you are too spineless to proudly support Canada’s pro-human rights value of gender equity and to challenge the enemy to do so too, then don’t ever pretend you will defend Canada because you’ll sell out any freedom you fear the enemy might disapprove of. Like men in heels having a laugh. Not because they feel humiliated but because they are strong, courageous individuals proud of Canada’s gender equity. Voluntarily walking in heels to support women oppressed and murdered all over the world, including in the west, for opposing murder, violence and other gender inequities. For doing it freely in a direct challenge to the inferior enemy.
