Over on the Irregular Times main page, Peregrin Wood has rightfully heaped disdain on the military’s claim that it is immoral for soldiers merely to use web sites that are inclusive of gay people. He referenced a USA Today article on the story.
What stood out to me from that article was one absurd sentence: “Betty Huang of Community Connect says the military services, through private ad agencies, bought Monster’s ‘diversity and inclusion package’, which includes posts on her company’s niche websites for Asian-Americans, blacks, Latinos, and gays.”
Memo to Community Connect: Diversity and inclusion cannot be sold to the military in a package. Targeting people for exploitative military recruiting advertisements certainly doesn’t fit under my definition of inclusion and diversity.
