Can you imagine living in a world where the U.S. Navy SEALs and Navy Special Warfare Combat-craft crewmen turn their back on the "brotherhood" and turn to more inclusive terms? They are moving towards more inclusive terminology, and the this will replace ”common man with uncommon desire to succeed” with “common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed.”
American Military News reports that this is due to the changes in law that allow women to serve in the SEALs and SWCC.
“Naval Special Warfare continues to deliberately develop a culture of tactical and ethical excellence that reflects the nation we represent, and that draws upon the talents of the all-volunteer force who meet the standards of qualification as a SEAL or SWCC,” Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Stroup said.
“The previous versions of the SEAL Ethos and SWCC Creed were written prior to the law allowing women to serve as operators in Naval Special Warfare,” he continued. “The changes do not in any way reflect lowering standards of entry, rather they ensure that all those who meet the requirements to train to become a SEAL or SWCC are represented in the ethos or creed they live out. This improves the posture of the NSW force by ensuring we draw from the greatest pool of talent available.”
“To date, no women completed the SEAL or SWCC qualification training pipelines,” Stroup added.
Another alteration to the first paragraph changes the phrase “I am that man” to “I am that warrior.”
In the fourth paragraph, the sentence, “The ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from other men” is changed to “The ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from others” in the new version of the SEAL ethos.
In the final paragraph of the ethos statement, the prior sentence states, “Brave men have fought and died building the proud tradition and feared reputation that I am bound to uphold.” The sentence is now changed with the reference to “Brave men” changed to “Brave SEALs.”
The memo also calls for the SWCC creed to change the term “Brotherhood” in the first paragraph to “group of maritime warriors.” Additionally, the memo states the sentence “I challenge my brothers to perform, as I expect them to challenge me” is to be changed to “I challenge them to perform, as I expect them to challenge me.”
“The changes come despite the fact that there have been no women to successfully complete SEAL or SWCC training and enter the elite units,” AMN reports.
“What a joke. Note the names that signed off at the bottom. Adm. Colin Green (part of the hierarchy that tried to use the system to put me away)~ let’s remove all male pronouns & BROTHERHOOD from the SEAL ethos,” said Eddie Gallagher, a retired SEAL. “To be honest I thought the ethos was always BS. Now I know it is. A creed or ethos is supposed to be written in stone, obviously ours is not and will sway to whatever political agenda is being put out.”

Don't be fooled, the "medical experts" that we have today may be smart about their field, but they're no experts or at least they don't let on that they're experts.
I'm of the mind that just because I don't know everything about something, or because I don't have a degree in something, doesn't mean that I can't know something about the topic. I believe in something that Jordan Peterson teaches which is to always assume that the person you're listening to knows something that you don't.
