‘I have more masculinity in my left ovary’: Tucker Carlson slammed by military members for mocking women servicemembers

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is under fire after declaring America's troops have become too "feminine."

Carlson, who never served in the military but once tried unsuccessfully to join the CIA, on Tuesday night delivered a diatribe denigrating America's fighting forces while lauding China's military.

"Well this tells you everything," Carlson began, as Media Matters reports. He then compared the threat of the coronavirus pandemic and NIH Director Tony Fauci to what one Chinese official he claims called "a national masculinity crisis."

Carlson suggested that in a remarkably short period of time, less than a year, China turned that one official's "warning" into a massive building of naval warships, which take many years to design and build.

"Last year, we learned that China has quickly developed the world's largest naval force. In 2015, China had 255 battleships. Now they have more than 360, and many of those ships are more capable than anything in the American naval fleet. So how are we responding to this? Well, at the White House yesterday, Joe Biden addressed it effectively. What's the American military's response?" Carlson said, mocking the President.

He then showed President Biden saying, "we are making good progress designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits, updating requirements for their hairstyles. And some of it is going to take, you know, an intensity of purpose and initiative to really change the culture and the habits that cause women to leave the military."

Carlson continued to mock the American military and the women who serve, some risking their very lives for his freedom to denigrate them.

"So we've got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits. Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It's a mockery of the U.S. Military. While China's military becomes more masculine as it's assembled the world's largest navy, our military needs to become as Joe Biden says more feminine, whatever feminine means anymore since men and women no longer exist. The bottom line is it's out of control, and the Pentagon is going along with this."

Carlson's misogynistic attacks, suggestions that women do not perform as well as men, that for some reason only men – and only "masculine" men should serve in the military, and that women in the military make our fighting forces somehow less lethal, less effective, and less "masculine" have led to outrage and anger among current and former military members.
