US Navy Releases 'Woke' Training Video Urging Recruits to Create Pronoun 'Safe Space'
The video intended to highlight 'the importance of using correct pronouns'
The US Navy has released a training video encouraging sailors to announce their pronouns to create a “safe space” and avoid “misgendering” people.
“Hi! My name is Jony, and I use he/him pronouns,” states one of the presenters in the training video.
The video intended to highlight “the importance of using correct pronouns as well as polite etiquette when you may not be sure of someone’s pronouns,” according to the Navy.
The nearly four-minute Navy video emphasizes how members can create “a safe space” for their colleagues by using “inclusive language” that signals they are “allies” who “accept everybody,” reports the Washington Free Beacon.
“Service members must take these steps to ensure they do not “misgender someone.”
The Navy also warns staff against pressuring an individual to disclose his or her gender pronouns, saying that colleagues may still be in “the process of discovery and not yet ready to provide this information.”

Here's their new instructional video, which is modeled after a children's show:

“At the same time that they’re training soldiers and sailors to use 'proper' pronouns to 'signal of acceptance and respect' of LGBTBBQ people, they’re simultaneously training their mostly-white recruits and servicemembers that white people are inherently evil,” writes Chris Menahan.
“Gender” is a “spectrum” but “whiteness is pure evil," he wrote.
Service members are instructed to practice memorizing a person's gender pronouns by going "through a progression of three good things about the person using their pronouns."
"Let's say the person chooses to use ‘they,'" Vasquez says.
"Then you will in your mind go, ‘They have a nice shirt. They have a nice smile. They are really smart.'
"So that kinda sticks in your brain."
The official US Marines account tweeted an image of LGBT flag-colored bullets to celebrate pride month, prompting much ridicule.
During pride month last year, duty members of the Navy in San Diego were forced to take part in a mandatory "diversity hike," during which they flew LGBT flags while American flags were nowhere to be seen.
