The British army is to lift restrictions on male soldiers wearing make up while on duty in an effort to promote inclusivity and diversity.
An army spokesperson said: “As an inclusive employer that recognises the diversity of its personnel, we are currently in the process of revising our guidance in this area to make it gender neutral.”
This follows announcements in 2017 by military officials that phrases such as “mankind” and “sportsmanship” would be banned amid fears they upset women and trans groups.
Under the new politically correct guidelines popular phrases such as “chaps” was to be swapped for “people, folks, friends or you all” and other such as “Gentleman’s agreement” was replaced with “unwritten agreement”.
Earlier this year the British army’s “Extreme Right Wing (XRW) Indicators & Warnings” described those who self-identify as “patriots” and being skeptical about multi-culturalism are indicators that they hold extreme right-wing views.
The British army, which is currently experiencing a sever personnel shortage, has gone into the political correctness overdrive in recent years and has been accused of seek social justice warriors rather than actual warriors.
Earlier in 2019 the UK military launched a recruit drive seeking “millennials” and “snowflakes” and last year launched an entire campaign aimed solely at recruiting homosexuals and Muslims.
