Harassment complaint – ADF involvement in the Mardi Gras

This week has seen the Australian Defence Force hit with yet another sex scandal.

While this is disappointing, there is no doubt that the Army will fail to address inappropriate sexual behaviour while it condones perverted sexual practices within ADF workplaces.

Therefore, in the public interest I am publishing a complaint I lodged earlier this year regarding inappropriate sexual behaviour in ADF workplaces. It was dismissed.

As a result, this document highlights exactly what kind of behaviour is considered acceptable by the Chief of Army and Defence leadership within ADF workplaces. You will be shocked.

Under the leadership of the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison, certain ADF personnel are permitted to extend the ADF workplace into events that:

  • mock Christianity
  • support radical political activism
  • contain inappropriate and explicit sexual activity

As Lieutenant General Morrison said, the standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

And he has walked right past this.

I say that the standard an army marches to reflects its professionalism, capability, integrity and moral cohesion.

Finally, as published in the Army Newspaper on 14 March, 2013, the ADF is preparing to archive its shameful orders to allow uniformed participation in the Mardi Gras within the Australian War Memorial. I have many relatives whose names are listed on the War Memorial’s Roll of Honour. I can think of nothing more insulting to their honour.
