PC and Planes

The other day I was thinking about our fabulous Airmen, which led me to thoughts about pilots and planes…and naturally after that my mind turned toward the lovely combination of old planes and pretty women.

As I write the word “Airmen” I’m reminded of the new writing guidelines my son was issued by his college.  They’re no longer allowed to use words in their papers that contain the word “man” or “men.”  For instance you have to write humankind instead of mankind.  You have to write infantryperson instead of infantryman.  If you don’t you’re subject to getting marked down.  I think they call it gender neutral style but it’s so insipidly stupid, I didn’t absorb all the ins and outs of the new PC guidelines.  Suffice it to say I’m not politically correct…and neither is my son.  He says he’ll write exactly what he wants and dare them to do something about it.  He’s big on defending his free speech rights and I certainly wouldn’t want to be the administrator trying to mark him down or punish him for ignoring their freshly minted rules.

According to the new guidelines, I’m supposed to be using the term Airpersons but I”m not.  Sorry, but Airmen, Airmen, Airmen, Airmen, Airmen…

Anyway, in another disapproved of (by the PC brigade) move, I’m going to reflect back on the days when women could say they liked men and even show it with sassy, sweet displays of encouragement.  Thank goodness there are some modern female holdouts.  I found some wonderful photos on the internet and thought I’d share them with you.

Fit women and Flying machines…
