Must have been owned by an adult.  99.99% of the time, a kid's barbie/ken down will be nake, laying on the kid's floor.  The other .01% of the time is before the kid opens the box.

Because removing masturbation material won't result in an increase in sexual frustration or anything.

The backlash over this has been hilarious. O! O, how we debase the "warrior ethos" so by not allowing our brave young fighting men to blah, blah, blah. Hey, you know what you can't have in a normal adult workplace in the rest of the world, dipshiats? Porn mags, girlie calendars, and shiat like that. Maybe if you're a barber shop you can have some Maxims laying around. But the adult world just doesn't do that. So grow the fark up and join the rest of the world and quit crying because you can't look at boobies every second of every day.

The military is essentially a giant fraternity, so none of this is surprising.
 
2013-01-23 10:45:25 AM  
Well, that should up the sexual assault rate drastically. Good thinking.

That's what I was thinking. How exactly does removing the one legal outlet of sexual urges decrease the use of an illegal outlet?

FTA: "other video removed from the command was entitled "Achmed the Dead Terrorist.""

Now that's offensive. Stale, bad "comedy" - I'll say it, Dane Cook is funnier.

Because the officer who spearhead the porno roundup will get an attaboy, a good fitness report, and be way the hell over there doing something else by the time the rape numbers spike.

Also as a former NCO, this is how it went down:

NCO: "Alright, everyone toss in their least favorite piece of porn so I can give this bag to the Lt and say I did what he told me to do. If you don't own anything you care to sacrifice, run out and buy a Maxim or something."
 
2013-01-23 10:52:10 AM  
Good luck with that. Once, while spending a stint in the brig at Millington NAS in Tenn., I had the pleasure of cleaning out and painting about 4 or 5 empty barracks by myself. I probably hauled 2 full dumpsters of porn mags out of those buildings.
 
2013-01-23 10:52:41 AM  
Seems like it's just the stuff in public areas / servers, not private stuff. I see no problem. Women tend to be retarded about porn so yeah, goes with the territory.

I guess it would depend on the material. Some naked pictures or a little lesbian action is considered porn but it is also lumped in the same category as hard core BDSM, bloodletting.SCAT, electroshock.... some of the more taboo.

Remember zero-tolerance is zero thought

It's funny to me that military guys are so horny and into pron, while at the same time they are also usually big conservatives.

Don't they know that conservatives want to ban pron???

2013-01-23 11:00:32 AM  
I can certainly see banning this in public work areas, but whereas most civilians are at work eight hours and go home (and have weekends off), these men and women tend to have a lot less "alone" time. Maybe the military should just give them all iPads and a server full of porn, and look the other way on their down time.
 
2013-01-23 11:02:04 AM  
Considering this wasn't private material but shiat displayed in public places, I'm totally OK with this. Whack off on your own time, but keep the girlie mags and posters somewhere else. Those women next to you are your fellow soldiers, damn it.

Actually I have not heard much from the Right about banning / restricting pron in a long time. Seems more of a far Left thing... 'cause it's rape and exploitation... like pretty much everything else to those idiots.

Our XO on the CGC Munro (years ago) was a bible thumper who lumped Maxim and Cosmo in with porn.

While U/W we had someone get caught with booze on the fantail. XO ordered a full seach of the ship for contraband which yielded no more booze, but about 6 stacks of magazines each about 4 feet high, and multiple "marital aides"

Wasn't even a year ago that a GOP frontrunner for the Presidency declared a "War on Porn", and he would dedicate his presidency to it.

Hooray small government!
 
2013-01-23 11:14:53 AM  
Accessing porn on a government computer is a huge no no in the military. Same as having inappropriate material in the workplace/duty section.

Just to be clear here, they were not going into dorm rooms, barracks or housing. You're perfectly welcome to have all the porn you want at home and masturbate till your arms get numb.

tomo12144:
"In the last year I've had to take Sexual Assault Prevention and Response training, and diversity and sexual harassment training."

I took the sexual harassment training on an army base while working for the dod a few years back and it was beyond confusing.

It consisted of watching a bunch of scenarios, then stopping the video after each, and asking if that was harassment. Invariably, we got it wrong. Hot mess.

The air force is much less macho/male dominated than the other forces.

the scourge of futile pc efforts will continue until all the fun is sucked out. Meanwhile, assaults will continue.

I have the Black Ops 2 poster (the side with the big boobie chick holding a skull) on my cube wall, so I am getting a kick. Last year I had the Gotham City Sirens calendar up, but I couldn't find a good replacement for it, so I just went with Adventure Time this year.

2013-01-23 11:16:49 AM  
No, no, no- the thing to do is to remove misogynist and/or objectifying idiots from the military. This will do two things: first, it will drastically lower incidents of rape and harassment; and two, it will drastically reduce the number of people in the military. This will lead to a net savings in our national expenditure and make it more difficult for us to jump into pointless conflicts. It's win-win, really.
 
2013-01-23 11:17:42 AM  
So, you encourage and reward agressive, risk taking men to join the military and be effective warriors, then punish them for acting like men.

Yup, that'll work.

You're going to have to decide what you want in your military. Effective, aggressive, risk taking Warriors, OR sensitive, caring metrosexuals, women and gays. The Military IS NOT the office. Stop thinking like you can treat military professionals like any other office/factory/work environment. Nobody asks you to risk your life going into a Powerpoint Presentation.

You can't keep Tigers around and expect them to thrive on Tofu.

For now the metrosexuals are in favor, because the US isn't in any great danger. All this PC fluff will dissappear overnight should a real shooting war start. I just hope we survive the surprise attack these things usually start with.....

The US military is headed back to where it was in the late 70s. I mean that in the worst way possible, mainly because anyone who remembers that time and was around the Armed Forces sort of shutters at the thought. It was that bad. Morale was terrible, people who were good at politics...not at actual military command...got the promotions there were to be had and there weren't many, equipment aging and poorly maintained, and the C-rations were most definitely fresh back off the last boat from Saigon. If the Soviets were going to invade western Europe, that would have been the time to do the job and short of us plastering the German landscape with nukes, they likely would have won.

People on this forum like to talk about how the US military would kick the ass of any insurrection that cropped up so why bothering cuddling an AR-15 at night? There's lots of reasons, really.

/no, I don't own an AR-15...need a gun safe first, I'm doing it right or I'm not doing it

Essentially this is a move to placate the feminists. The Air Force had some sexual assaults etc at Lackland AFB so to show they are dong something this was on the list. You know because a Hooters calander incites rape etc, etc.

A huge portion of the Air Force IS the office, as much as they don't like to admit it. "Death by combat" rates pretty low on the Air Force scale of problems, while the sexual harrassment is much higher.

I thought they had enacted a rule in the 90's barring porn from bases including ships and barracks, but it wasn't generally enforced. Cinton maybe?

I am always amused when leftists try to compare serving in the military with their civilian occupations. Call me when the Starbucks you work at is subject to RPG and mortar attacks.

The military that gave us this and defeated NAZI Germany and Japan is now afraid of a Hooters calendar.
