Coast Guard Under Fire For Saving Too Many Straight White Males

By Slab Squatthrust On Apr 13, 2017 11,089
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — For some people, it looked like the Coast Guard was having a good year: 200 lives saved, more than 3,800 lives assisted and roughly $5.3 million in property saved. That is until independent blogger Caden Dakota pointed out the Coast Guard’s fatal flaw: The service mostly saved straight white males.

Dakota, a social activist and professional tweeter, launched his critique on Twitter by pointing out that he was triggered by a recent report showing that that there weren’t enough LGBTQ rescues.


“The Coast Guard didn’t save a single gay person in 2016 #WhiteGuard,” he tweeted. He also mentioned that the Coast Guard’s use of the phrase “man overboard” was extremely sexist.

The man’s critique came after the Coast Guard released its annual report on lives saved and property assisted, highlighting a number of times when guardsmen have put themselves in grave danger to assist the public in times of desperate need.

Dakota was troubled by the report, however, in which he found some startling trends.

I'm not sure why anyone would identify as white, especially a male. I switched to Hispanic back in the 90's when I saw the writing on the wall.

Someone defined as "independent blogger" is irrelevant.

I can here it now
USCG radio response protocol to a distress call: " Roger that we understand your boat is sinking and on fire but could answer a few simple questions before deploy rescue elements to your location?"

USCG: "Sir what is you race and nationality? religion?" "one last question before we get your location sir"
USCG: " Are you gay or straight sir?"
USCG "Roger that sir we apologize but we have already exceeded our rescue quota for White straight males sir so we cannot put a rescue plan in place." Do you have Boat US by chance"

I went one step further and went African Native American. I can cover all the bases with that one.

Being a white male sucks a squatthrust!

Not that it matters, but how did the blogger know the sex orientation of those that got helped? USCG doesn't ask, doesn't tell, does it?

You're right the radio operator will need a demotion and more advanced sensitivity training with puppy dogs.

So......If more people threw LGBTQ folks into the sea, that might give the Coast Guard more opportunity to rescue them!

The guy's a douche.....don't give him any more coverage. In fact.....hopefully someone will push him overboard soon and he can put his money where his mouth is.

http://www.duffelblog.com/2015/11/ar...per-marriages/

this one was hilarious.

Lynch said the warning signs are, “First, your fiancee or spouse frequently returns home from work with large stacks of one-dollar bills.”

“Second, you may want to be cautious if your spouse or fiancee was nude when you met her,” he continued. “Third, your fiancee insists she is saving money for medical school when in fact she dropped out of high school or middle school.”

Lynch says that the last two are “a strident insistence” that you purchase at least two drinks prior to speaking to her and then ordering champagne themselves, and then immediately jumping to her feet and taking off her shirt when Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” comes on the radio.
