More trouble at ADFA

By johnboy - 21 June 2013 23

The ABC has a story on mass suspensions at ADFA over an unspecified “off-campus incident”:

“It appears that the incident is linked to a group of male cadets and midshipmen that is operating contrary to the values and standards expected of the ADF members and of future leaders,” he said.

“As this investigation is ongoing I cannot go into any further details about the nature of the allegations except to say that if substantiated the conduct is unacceptable and it is not in keeping with the expectations of future leaders of the Australian Defence Force.

“Conduct of this nature has consequences and it will not be tolerated.”

Air Marshal Binskin says 20 cadets and midshipmen are involved from all three Defence services in all three years of ADFA training and he expects more will be suspended in coming days.

Maybe it was just a harmless game of grab-ass, there’s nothing sexual about that.

Maybe I’m sick and disgusting, but I kinda want to know what the sex acts the boys were apparently performing on each other were. If it’s a quick handjob, who cares. If it’s blowies, eek. If we’re talking anything in the butt, double eek.

Well I hope it isn’t this coz they’ll be well and truly in the shit..

Kind of… but now we’re left to wonder if its an ADF thing, or a Rugby Club thing.

From memory, this sort of ritual never happened at my old university chess club evenings. But perhaps I’m just romanticising the past.

Wow – so I am wondering if the high school/college culture that they came from has an influence on how they behave…. sure would be interesting to see THAT info.

Perhaps the brass should acquaint, or re-acquaint, themselves with the Kinsey Report, and just tell the boys to be less ostentatious about their hijinks.

I’m guessing your time at university was different to mine, in that the rugby team didn’t perform sex acts on each other. Not in public anyway.

Except ADFA isn’t just another University.

This is an institution where kids get a free education in return for service to their country and some discipline.

You clearly haven’t bothered to read up on what they’re actually accused to have done. The behaviour that has been alleged is disgusting.

Yours might be the stupidest post of the week. And with the amount of trolling dungfungus has done this week, that’s a mighty achievement.

Yeah but most uni students don’t get given a gun at the end of the degree and then are made to exercise moral judgements about life and death in highly stressful conditions. If you let these scum get away with it now, that’s precisely how you end up with Abu Ghraib type incidents, or GIs shipping drugs home in coffins.

“This just in, ordinary citizens expect that our future military leaders will take their training seriously, and won’t go around causing trouble while they’re learning to lead our military forces. Next at eleven, people hold military cadets to a higher standard than the standard university student”
