    Lets see the photos of these naked female Marines who were out of uniform.

    If I remember correctly...in the "Old Corps" when I served, being caught out of uniform you would find yourself "standing before the Man" with an Article - 15.

    Post #1001 demonstrating why you are a fossil with totally obsolete opinions when it comes to the military.

    Pick any period in modern times and you can find pictures of naked male soldiers floating around the internet. If it is a female, they are suddenly victims. Tinder/craigslist/skype naked, it is going to get spread about. That is just the reality of it.

    Nose art before the U.S. military went politically correct.

    You realize that those are not actual women whose images were taken without their knowledge and distributed without their consent . . . right?

    Actually most of the nose art on U.S. military aircraft during WW ll were of real girls, mostly the Vargas Girls. The artist looked at a photograph or the pin-up of one of the Vargas models and painted the girl onto the nose of the aircraft. Real living American girls.

    Replicating an image that the woman voluntarily had taken. This false equivalence is, quite frankly, disgusting. Quite frankly, I believe our laws and our soldiers deserve more respect than this.

    What is really disgusting is using the military for PC social engineering.

    Every time the U.S. military has been used for social engineering, soldiers, sailors. Marines and airmen bleed and die, get raped and even naked pictures being circulated.

    Also known as the soft bigotry of low expectations. Men are perfectly capable of serving with women without abusing, raping or harassing them. They are perfectly capable of serving with them without violating their privacy or their other legal rights. Most men who serve do so without violating the legal rights of their female counterparts. They are more than capable of basic self control. Your use of passive voice is extremely telling here -- it ignores agency and personal responsibility. Blaming the victims isn't an attack on political correctness. It is an attack on woman and an attack on our soldiers.

    Any other straw men to offer? Or do you honestly not see the difference between consensual sex and taking and distributing nude images of women without their consent?

    If a woman takes a nude PIX of herself and puts it out she is a dumb as a stick.

    Several of these women were filmed or photographed without their knowledge or permission while showering. No, that is not the same thing as consensual sex.

    'Several?'....That doesn't seem like it should be a big news story. The military can handle punishing the few that do this type of thing. This is another typical MSM story blown up beyond all logic and the lefties swallow the bait like hungry fish.

    And the fact that the far right has more condemning words for the PC boggieman and the media for taking notice than they do for the perpetrators is troublesome, to say the least.

    My point is that the Military could easily take care of a few perps. Why does this story have to be blown up beyond all reason? I mean do some people hate the Military that much? Or are they just sitting in their underwear drooling over salacious yellow journalism?

    From the reports, this wasn't just a "few people." And it has little to do with hatred of the military. I've seen far more denigration of the military from the people downplaying this story, actually. Lots of hatred for the female soldiers. Lots of hatred for the "PC" military leadership. Lots of the soft bigotry of low expectations for the male soldiers.

    Actually, the article quoted in the OP reads: "A Marine Corps official confirmed an investigation was ongoing, but could not confirm that hundreds of Marines were caught up in it, as Brennan reported."

    Talk about making mountains out of mole-hills.:blankstare:

    For going on almost 16 years the U.S. military has been fighting low intensity wars.

    What happens if the next war is a high intensity war against an enemy who has a real army, a real navy, and a real air force ? Where there is no privacy on the battlefield, no porta potties, no showers, you take a crap while sitting on two ammo cans in full view of your comrades in your unit. You strip down butt naked so your buddies can burn the leeches that have attached themselves to your body to suck out your blood and removing a leech that has attached itself to your penis isn't a fun experience.

    Veterans who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan have reported any time a female soldier or female Marine was even in the vicinity, unit cohesion was effected. You are dealing with teenagers and young adults where your dick or poosey over powers your brain housing group. Jealousies, fist fights, young female soldiers exchanging sexual favors to SNCO's so they don't have to pull duty on the wire.

    Stories from Camp Snoopy:

    Nothing is more basic than Basic Combat Training. Basic to the ways of war. Basic to national security. Basic to the very survival of the United States. So how come Fort Jackson, the single largest producer of Basic grunts, male and female, is under the command of a general who piled up more friendly fire casualties than anyone else in Desert Storm?

    The Victory Tower looms up like a gallows, its timbers and planks cutting off the sun. It's a huge thing, three stories high, girdled with ropes and rope bridges, and fitted out with ladders. Next to it rises an awesome rappelling wall with a sheer, 40-foot drop to a sawdust pit. A line of young recruits are lined up, ready to leap, rope in hand, out over the edge.

    WHUUUMP....WHUUMP....WHUMP...boots hit the wall. Three or four thumping steps followed by four dick-shriveling swings and the grunts are back on the ground. The first few two or three male recruits take it as a rope-burning rite of passage that leaves their asses hot and their spirits high.

    A fat guy stands frozen on the ledge above. The drill sergeant has to wet nurse him for 10 minutes before he flops over the side and drops like a bag of rocks. Then I spot the first female. Up there at the rim of outer space, she peers over her shoulder, her jaw quivering, tears streaming down her cheeks. She backs off until the drill sergeants surround her, talking quietly, gently cajoling her back to the edge, and this time she's out there flying, WHUUMP...WHUUMP...WHUUMP, tear-stained but game. "I'll be damned! Well done, soldier," I mutter to myself. The next female appears. This one collapses. No amount of friendly persuasion gets her to take the leap. Sobbing, she's led from Victory Tower in total defeat.

    Welcome to Basic Combat Training. Welcome to Camp Snoopy, the U.S. Army's let's-play-soldiers theme park tucked in the piney hills of South Carolina.

    A wall of text denigrating the contributions of our female soldiers . . . But nothing condemning the actual criminals in the OP?
