I don't know whether to weep or laugh again. I just received an article on an anonymous tip from Sweden's biggest newspaper. The title translates to "Gender role knowledge will strengthen the military". And right then and there you can tell where this is all headed: straight down the shitter.
The short version: The swedish defense power has issued a handbook called "Handbok gender". The purpose of this handbook is to teach the Swedish armed forces to use an equality perspective in military operations. The effort will, supposedly enhance recruitment to the armed forces and operational efficiency. According to operational supervisor Jan Thörnqvist it is "just as important to take into account as the weather and the fighting morale of the enemy".
Allow us to provide some selected nuggets of gold from the article:
I used to believe that news of this kind was a blast. But they are becoming more and more of a burden. Anytime I mention my origins to a stranger, I'd just better hope they don't read DN. It is not possible to explain events like this to a normal person and keep a straight face. Today's political class in Sweden is bringing our once proud nation no where but south.
Let's be explicit, this Jan Thörnqvist character is certainly not ulbator endorsed.
Not for Pussies!
