Royal Marines at war over 'Genderbread man' in green beret: Poster aiming to promote awareness of gender issues in Commando units is slammed by troops

A poster featuring a so-called ‘Genderbread’ person wearing a green beret has triggered anger and bemusement among Royal Marines.

The mocked-up image, intended to promote awareness of gender issues in Commando units, was attacked last night as disrespectful and a waste of money.

Some elite troops claimed the poster mocks their legendary green berets – which are only awarded after a brutally tough selection process.

A serving Sergeant Major told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I have no issues with anyone’s sexuality. But depicting a member of the Corps as a ‘‘Genderbread’’ person, and the wearing of a green beret, is deeply offensive. It looks as if the Marines are being mocked.’

An MOD spokesperson said: ‘We want the best possible people in the Armed Forces regardless of background – that’s why we are implementing a range of measures designed to encourage a diverse and inclusive workforce.’

Since the portion of the military that wears green beret's is miniscule it did not make sense to use that symbol on the poster so it is easy to see why they are miffed. I seriously doubt most of the elite corps care because they know what they have accomplished but the low lives that enjoy taking potshots at their betters will find this to their liking.
