Senator Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, posted on Medium alleging that she convinced the U.S. Army to drop skirts from their dress code for women…
A Democrat from Missouri seems to be taking her cue from liberals in Britain. The British Air Force recently banned skirts to appease the trans community. Now, it seems Senator Claire McCaskill is opting for a similar type of virtue signaling here in the United States. Senator McCaskill calls wearing skirts a “gendered requirement from days gone by” and promised that she would look into the matter after she allegedly spoke with female servicemembers.
The easing of this requirement could’ve been a much bigger necessity if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton was allegedly a proponent of women registering for the draft. Supporting a female draft had a caustic effect on Clinton’s public relations game when #DraftOurDaughters went viral slamming her for her position. Thankfully, Clinton wasn’t able to pull off a win last November, and nobody is drafting our daughters.
Perhaps your gender doesn’t matter anyway when it comes to wearing a skirt. Senator McCaskill should be thankful she’s not a public official in Britain. A top British private school is introducing gender-neutral uniforms which sparked a bit of a debate as to whether boys in the school should be allowed to wear skirts. The debate even made its way to an English morning show where the discussion got a bit heated.
Now, Senator Claire McCaskill is taking on the “gendered” dress code in the U.S. Army:
…But one thing that came up in a conversation with women in uniform, was that women in the Army were required to wear skirts at social events, while men wore slacks. As you might imagine, they highlighted for me the unfairness of that regulation, and pointed out that this requirement had already been lifted for official duty events. I agreed. It seemed to me an unnecessary, gendered requirement from days gone by, and I promised to look into it and make their case.
McCaskill went on to claim that she had the requirement lifted…
After returning to the Senate I worked with my staff to learn more about the requirement and why it may exist, and after examining the facts, wrote a letter to Sergeant Major of the Army, requesting that as the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Army Chief of Staff, he reconsider this requirement and allow women in his service to opt for slacks alongside their male counterparts.
Yesterday, that regulation was changed.
This change has been made effective immediately and will be permanently incorporated into the Army’s uniform regulation the next time it is updated and published.
