Another sign of how much Obama has screwed up the military: Male ROTC Cadets forced to wear red high heels... or else.

(transcribed by Nuance Dragon Naturally Speaking 12.5)

When I first read about this, I was sure it was some sort of sick April Fool's joke.

I was wrong.

This particular idiocy was taking place at Arizona State. (ACU's are the Army field uniform.  CDT OER is the ROTC equivalent of the cadet officer evaluation report)

Temple University ROTC has already done this:

The following pictures are of men, being forced to wear red high heeled shoes, purchased at their own expense, in violation of AR 670–1, Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia, the regulation governing the wear of the uniform.


There are other pictures at the link, many others.

But this kind of stupidity is what's permeating the Armed Forces of the United States as a result of the social experimentation that is the Obama administration.  In fact, I believe that this is taking the new homosexuality policies a bit far.

Besides being an obvious violation of the Army uniform regulations, this infers that sexual assault only takes place on women, and that the Army's blindness to the problem of sexual assault is somehow going to be repaired by forcing men to dress like women.

Taking it a step further, do not think for one moment that our enemies in the Middle East do not have access to the same pictures. And that they will not take them down and use them as propaganda tools about today's U.S. Army. And they won't bother to provide these warm, fuzzy, nonsensical explanations as to the why of it.

As mentioned in the first picture, these were mandatory demonstrations of idiocy under threat of negative career consequences within the confines of the commissioned career of an ROTC cadet who would refuse to take part in this stupidity.

I am a 1981 graduate of the University of Washington Army ROTC. I am a distinguished military student/distinguished military graduate/regular army commissionee.

I would've cheerfully risked all of those things by refusing to take part in this kind of insanity.

This is just another one of the many things that now causes me shame on the part of my Army.

And for those inclined to engage in sexual assault, I somehow doubt that this will in any way end all those desires.

This is yet another symptom of what Obama has done to the Armed Forces of the United States.

Our Warriors… Now wear red high heels.

Democrats have for decades seen the Military as just a means for their social experimentation.

Fighting or winning a war doesn't enter their feeble minds
