Speaking One’s Mind

Gary Volesky. This guy was my first platoon leader when I arrived at my first assignment in the army: 2nd Platoon (Blacksheep) A/2/75. Great to see he hasn’t lost his sharp wit.

Good for him. And, for the other “woman” (in the article) who has a difficult time waking up everyday and putting on her uniform… hurry up and get the fuck out of the Army!

Never quite understood a combat “maternity uniform”, seems counterproductive to me, guess I’m just a misogynistic old man.

Hey, BTW, the recent SCOTUS ruling only corrected an unconstitutional opinion from 1973, the wrongly decided a case, women still own their bodies and can make good or bad choices when it comes to reproductive health. Abortion is not a form of birth control!

His message does not seem to rate the level of pain the DOD is throwing at him. It's a comment, from a retired person, not in uniform, not using a federal platform, and not acting in any official capacity.

“Glad to see you finally know what a woman is.”

Is PhD Jill using the DOD in a retaliatory fashion?


Sure looks like Biden’s DSH Disinformation Governance Board is still real and active..

Indeed good for General Volesky, somebody had to say it. ODNT great summation regarding the SCOTUS ruling on abortions, "Hey, BTW, the recent SCOTUS ruling only corrected an unconstitutional opinion from 1973, the wrongly decided a case, women still own their bodies and can make good or bad choices when it comes to reproductive health. Abortion is not a form of birth control!"
I plan on sharing that with some of my less than enlightened friends.

You are welcome to it.

So here’s the 'Enraged' Army medic's TikTok video ripping Roe v. Wade ruling goes viral

https://apple.news/Adnc3zGi-Q9GHWQD-Y_a8Sg

I’ve got news for you… a lack of federally funded abortion doesn’t make you a first or second class citizen, it doesn’t make you anything but pregnant. If you feel that you can’t practice safe sex in the military and not get pregnant maybe you shouldn’t have sex. If having unprotected sex leads to an STD, unwanted pregnancy or other possibly life changing consequences maybe you should consider some of the many provided free alternatives to birth control. Yes, Virginia the military still provides many different types of birth control, from drugs, intrauterine devices, to under the skin long term devices and education on how to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. It won’t stop you from getting an STD, but that’s a risk you assume when you jump in the sack with a man who while wearing a condom (maybe) may still cause an unwanted pregnancy. Depending on the state you are stationed in, your home state (take leave and go home), or the conditions of your OCONUS deployment you may be able to get an abortion, request the “Plan B” abortion pill, or travel to Europe where women are still allowed to use the socialist medical system for abortion as birth control, sex selection, or to terminate a pregnancy for any reason. If by chance you are in the Middle East, Far East, Central America or South America… you are a second class person and while those services might be found and are available, you assume all risk for the outcome of the procedure up to and including death due to complications.

If you are still confused as to your obligations to serve in the United States Military, your Oath of Enlistment, the U.S. Constitution, or the status of your citizenship you have more issues than the recent overturning of an unconstitutional opinion issued in 1973 that made abortion a medical option funded and paid for using U.S. tax dollars.

Yes, Virginia, you can still get an abortion depending on the state laws in the state you choose to reside in… you are free to move! ETA: pregnancy is choice, abortion is consequence unless medically necessary in which case nothing has changed.

Maybe that is what LtG Volesky was eluding to??

maybe that is why Volesky is getting hassled - in his tweek to the residents' wife he simply misspelled the word 'womxn'
if his text would have said, "Glad to see you finally know what a womxn is.” it would have been business as usual.

The only thing he is guilty of is a spelling error.
