We try not to write too much about politics, the military or women’s pants, but there’s a change coming to our armed forces and we can no longer remain silent. We’re talking, of course, about the military’s respect for large posteriors. And we’re pleased to say, that respect is growing.

The U.S. Army is currently testing a new women’s combat uniform with specific alterations for the female form. In particular, “more material… to accommodate the buttocks,” in the words of one designer. In short, it’s a victory of the indomitable female form over the baggy, shapeless military bureaucracy. And at the risk of sounding partisan, we’ll say this victory’s overdue.

God bless America.
