Army PR push: 'Average-looking women'
By KATE BRANNEN | 11/19/13 1:34 PM EST Updated: 11/20/13 8:52 AM
The Army should use photos of “average-looking women” when it
needs to illustrate stories about female soldiers, a specialist
recommends — images of women who are too pretty undermine the
communications strategy about introducing them into combat
That’s the gist of an internal Army e-mail an Army source shared
“In general, ugly women are perceived as competent while pretty
women are perceived as having used their looks to get ahead,”
wrote Col. Lynette Arnhart, who is leading a team of analysts
studying how best to integrate women into combat roles that have
previously been closed off to them. She sent her message to give
guidance to Army spokesmen and spokeswomen about how they should
tell the press and public about the Army’s integration of women.
“There is a general tendency to select nice looking women when
we select a photo to go with an article (where the article does
not reference a specific person). It might behoove us to select
more average looking women for our comms strategy. For example,
the attached article shows a pretty woman, wearing make-up while
on deployed duty. Such photos undermine the rest of the message
(and may even make people ask if breaking a nail is considered
hazardous duty),” Arnhart said.
She wrote that a photo of a female soldier with mud on her face
that news agencies used last spring “sends a much different
message—one of women willing to do the dirty work necessary in
order to get the job done.”
Arnhart’s note was originally sent to two people, including Col.
Christian Kubik, chief of public affairs for the Army’s Training
and Doctrine Command. He forwarded the email to all public
affairs officers supporting TRADOC with the note: “A valuable
reminder from the TRADOC experts who are studying gender
integration — when [public affairs officers] choose photos that
glamorize women (such as in the attached article), we undermine
our own efforts. Please use ‘real’ photos that are typical, not
In a statement, Army spokesman George Wright said the comments
“were an internal email conversation” and “not an Army
After POLITICO first reported on the e-mail in Tuesday’s Morning
Defense, critics seized upon Arnhart’s guidance as proof that
today’s Army culture has a long way to go before women will be
treated as equals.
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) tweeted that it was “another
example that @USArmy just doesn’t get it as it debates if pretty
girls should be used in pamphlets.”
One Army source said, “It scares me to think that these are
people involved in gender integration.”
As deputy director of the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command’s
Analysis Center in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Arnhart is helping
lead “an extensive study of the institutional and cultural
factors associated with integrating women into previously
In a story published by the Army earlier this month, Arnhart is
quoted as saying, “As we move toward integrating women into
previously closed occupations, we must do so with the
understanding that the leadership and culture of a unit — the
history, lineage and social dynamics — are crucial to
successfully dealing with changes that will occur.”

Army makes staff changes over email comments about using
'average-looking' women in photos
Army makes staff changes after email about women
By JOHN MILBURN | ASSOCIATED PRESS | Nov 22, 2013 5:54 PM CST in
Pentagon officials said Friday that an Army colonel who wrote an
internal email suggesting photos of attractive women should be
avoided in promotional materials has stepped down from her
duties involving a gender study.
Army spokesman George Wright said Col. Lynnette Arnhart had
agreed to step aside, and Gen. Robert Cone, commander of the
Army's Training and Doctrine Command at Fort Eustis, Va., had
accepted the gender integration study's leadership change "in
order to protect the integrity of the ongoing work on gender
integration in the Army."
The content of the email was first reported by Politico this
week. In the email, Arnhart stated that "average-looking women"
should be used in Army materials used to attract women for
combat roles, Politico reported.
In addition, Wright said that Col. Christian Kubik,
affairs officer also with the Army's Training and Doctrine
Command, was suspended for his involvement in the email pending
According to the email chain obtained by Politico, Kubik
forwarded Arnhart's email to other public affairs officers,
cautioning the use of photos "that glamourize women" would
undermine the Army's gender integration efforts.
Wright confirmed that the email existed but didn't provide
copies to The Associated Press. Messages seeking comment from
Arnhart, who worked at the Training and Doctrine Command's
analysis center at Fort Leavenworth, and Kubik about the staff
changes weren't immediately returned.
Earlier Friday, Kubik said in a statement that
comments were internal, "nothing more" and didn't reflect
official Army policy.
"The intent was to help ensure that images depict professional
female soldiers as they are," he said. "And to ensure that they
are recognized on their hard-earned achievements as members of
the professional arms."
Theresa Vail, a Kansas Army National Guard soldier who is also
the reigning Miss Kansas, was critical of the email, saying
Arnhart's comments reflected entrenched stereotypes that
attractive women aren't competent enough to serve in combat or
other military roles.
"It's the sad truth. It's the unfortunate reality," Vail said
Friday. "From what I've been getting, women are outraged."
The military is trying to figure out how to implement policy
changes to move women into battlefront jobs, including infantry,
armor and elite commando positions. Updated physical and mental
standards that are equal for men and women are being devised for
thousands of combat jobs. The military has until Jan. 1, 2016,
to open as many jobs as possible to women and explain why if
they decide to keep some closed.
Vail, 23, enlisted in the Army when she was 17 and was told she
"too pretty join the military," she said.
"I've always been stereotyped. I pray that more women will stand
up to this and take a stand," Vail said. "It's not going to just
take me. It's going to take an army of women."

Army colonel looking for 'average-looking' women steps aside in
Published November 23, 2013 FoxNews.com
The Army colonel who suggested fewer photos of attractive
females in promotional material to recruit women for combat duty
has resigned from her role in the campaign.
Army spokesman George Wright said this weekend that Col.
Lynette Arnhart agreed to step down as the military branch’s director of
Arnhart created a firestorm earlier this week when
she said in an internal email that
“average-looking women" should be used in the material, a
comment that has also resulted in a military investigation.
The Army this year lifted a ban on women in combat and has been
working since then on how to best integrate them into such
Critics of the email argue it
implies attractive females succeed
on looks , not competence, and that pictures of them in combat
might discourage women overall from applying for such jobs.
Wright also said Gen. Robert Cone, commander of Army Training
and Doctrine Command, accepted Arnhart’s offer and that the
general also suspended Col. Christian Kubik from his position as
the unit’s public affairs officer for his part in the email,
“pending the outcome of an investigation."

The news comes after Theresa Vail, who is the reigning Miss
Kansas, said on Friday that Arnhart's comments reflected

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
I have shown that FoxNews likes to portray women as sex toys a lot, in fact
every single day.
I have shown pedophilia images present on FoxNews.
I have shown that women are not allowed to use pants at Foxnews in order to
sexually exploit their image.
I have shown that FoxNews is the
most powerful media lobby for pornography in the United States.
Prostitution is the act of doing sex for money.
Pornography is generally prostitution.
A Porn Web Site is a a place where prostitutes go to work and display their work
in exchange for money.
A Porn Company is thus a Brothel.
FoxNews is the main supporter on the "Rated 16" media content market in the
United States of Brothels.
What can the main lobby of brothels in the United States want with non
What can ANY BROTHEL want with unattractive women?
FoxNews is a Brothel lobby and as such it does not want any unattractive women.
It's absurd to pretend that a brothel lobby would support anything other than
When rape is good for the little woman, even if it is a
military women (According to them).
Why is it that if some leaks that are said to have put lives at risk and have
not been demonstrated to do so are so shocking when it is about the big United
The Wikileaks and the Snowden cases were leaks that were done against the will
of the United States. Even if no one was put in danger and proven, still the
United States wants to take draconian measures against both of them for
violating the privacy of the United States to such a degree that in Venezuela
and in much of South America it is believed they even grounded a plane with
Bolivian president on board in a frantic search for Snowden and Julian Asagne is
under siege in Great Britain while Bradley Manley has been enjailed, all for
violating the privacy of the United State's confidentiality.
So when is it bad to violate the confidentially of the United State's privacy
and it is so good to violate the same confidentiality of a woman that is serving
the military of her own country only to be savagely news raped for the sole
"crime" of having an opinion in a private setting...
So, it's bad to violate the privacy of the United States... But it is great to
violate the privacy of women, even if it is a military women that trusted and
offered her life to the United States?
What could SOME Republican care that her privacy and
opinions were violated, what could they even care about unattractive women if
they have the same media political lobby that Steve Hirsch and other Porn
In a brothel, all the ugly girls are not allowed even to enter the place.
And that is exactly what FoxNews just said as it published that news I put
I support the news raped women and so should all women that speak against rape,
she was in her privacy and she was abused. She trusted in her military and they
betrayed her. She thought she had privacy and they news raped her.
All she wanted to say was:
The military has to be more representative of all the women that
are serving because FoxNews and other brothel lobbies have
dedicated themselves to sexually exploit women in a brutal
campaign to relate beautiful women to prostitution which then
affects society. One such example is the brutal effort to make
of Kim Kardashian's sex tape one of the wisest and best ideas
that young women have had for success and a goal for young
people to follow on role models, as well as naked celebrities on
MTV which is also rated for age 16.
All she said was that women were not just sex toys... So her army betrayed her
and she was news raped, put to shame, humiliated, subjected to public hatred and
Ideological stoning, just because
brothels only want toy women for their business and profit.
I would not keep silence to that sad, depressing and
immoral rape of a women who's only crime was to trust in her military, her
country and her media and was news raped by all three.
Or so she had allowed to be made clear
and so does the women of the United States understand
by reading the media.
It is time to close the teen brothels in
the media and stand for the rights of all women,
not just the most appropriate for
BOYCOTT FOX BROTHEL FOR CHILDREN.
