Your 'science' is a theory nothing more or less, hence why it is called gender theory not gender science. The fact that some people don't agree with that theory isn't wrong, and it also isn't right, it can't be proven either way, hence the theory designation.If anything we need more political correctness. There is too much Homophobia present in the Military and people buy too much into an outdated concept of masculinity, when we know now from the science that gender is fluid and all gender roles are simply constructs of problematic western society (A systematically racist society).
Soldier in the New Canadian army need to be trained and informed of their misconceptions. Inherit biases, toxic masculinity etc. this is common knowledge at this point and many other institutions, government and other wise are already installing programs and training courses to make this happen.
Political Correctness is a politically motivated label, used in an attempt to hinder natural progress towards a tolerant society. Peoples backlash towards this probably stems from a fearful ego, white fragility or internalized trauma, that prevents mainly men from opening up and allowing themselves to show emotion and their natural feminine side.
Hope fully we get much more programs and restrictions/punishments put in place to help guide the Canadian military on the right path.
I love how you declare the whole of Western society problematic and racist, when in reality it is the only societies that have ever existed which are striving to get rid of racism, create equality (well not so much anymore, now we are striving for some pigs are more equal than others), and in general tolerate individuals choices.
Your 'natural progression to wards a tolerant society' is much the opposite. People are less tolerant now then they ever have been. People make one little mistake and you have the mobs out for blood. Makes 1984 seem not like a warning but a how to guide.
The CAF and government in general shouldn't be attempting to control what people think or believe, and I would argue it is actually illegal under the Charter as you have the right to Freedom of Thought, Opinion, and Expression. Provided people aren't attacking people for their opinions at work, that is the extent that they should be going to. Treat everyone the same and that is all that should be necessary.
And for the record, I personally don't really give two cents about what others do in their personal lives as long as it doesn't effect me, Classical Liberalism at its finest. But the garbage like this where one group of people believe they have the moral right and superiority to force their opinions down everyone else's throat and if people don't go along censure and punish them is wrong. In the West the Church used to perform this role in society, now we have these 'progressive' groups using the exact same tactics.
