From this link we learn,
Army ROTC cadets are complaining on message boards that they were pressured to walk in high heels on Monday for an Arizona State University campus event designed to raise awareness of sexual violence against women.
The Army openly encouraged participating in April’s “Walk A Mile in Her Shoes” events in 2014, but now it appears as though ROTC candidates at ASU were faced with a volunteer event that became mandatory.
“Attendance is mandatory and if we miss it we get a negative counseling and a ‘does not support the battalion sharp/EO mission’ on our CDT OER for getting the branch we want. So I just spent $16 on a pair of high heels that I have to spray paint red later on only to throw them in the trash after about 300 of us embarrass the U.S. Army tomorrow,” one anonymous cadet wrote on the social media sharing website Imgr, IJReview reported Monday
I could just imagine Big Red coming up with this idea. For those of you unfamiliar with Big Red, here is a taste
Having soldiers walk in red high heel shoes to increase awareness of sexual violence only makes sense to feminists. This is the kind of thinking that I am asking you to do today. Your assignment (if you choose to accept it) is to think like BIg Red, come up with tasks that men should do in order to raise awareness of something that would be near and dear to Big Red’s heart. Does it need to make sense? No. Be creative.
