Isn’t this a fun complaint?

The MoD is facing an exodus of military medics over gender attitudes “30-40 years behind”, a leaked official review has found.

Citing “traditional and hierarchical” behaviours, the Defence Medical Services (DMS) leadership was told more work was required “to understand how to actively engage” with the organisation’s diversity and inclusion agenda.

The review of the DMS, the overarching health and medical body for the MoD, states: “During our discussions, we noted concerning feedback from one area where we were informed that several staff were actively looking for alternative roles due to gender biased behaviour towards them.

“Some interviewees described behaviours in these areas as ‘traditional and hierarchical’ with a perception that these were ‘30-40 years behind what is currently viewed as being accepted behaviour’”.

They’re complaining about hierarchy in the military.

It’s possible, just, that they’re in the wrong career if that’s a problem.

  1. How long until someone suggests military action would be better decided by consultative “Squaddie’s Assemblies”?

    Or, instead of fighting wars, that there should be mandatory arbitration and counselling between the troops of both sides so they can come to a joint decision about who would have won.

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    I have said before that the purpose of the loonie left is to convince us that Islamic State is the saner option.

    Well. Sharia ain’t looking too bad right now.

    Hierarchy is all that works everywhere in business, too. You ultimately need 1 person who decides what you do, so if there’s 2 people who want you doing something, they call it. I’ve worked in places that tried different approaches and it always breaks down.

  6. I’ve worked in jobs where everybody is refered to by personal name and I’ve no idea who they are or what they’re responsible for.
    Martin says this, Adam wants that, tell Susan the other. Why? Who TF are they for me to be kowtowing to?
    Martin’s the Project Lead, he says this, Adam in Accounts needs that, tell Susan in Purchasing the other.

  7. One does normally expect those of more conservative views to join the military. Perhaps, once they’ve got rid of the reactionary heretics, the trannies will be the new conservatives and fight the good fight for Gaia and FGM.
