Adviser to the chief of the General staff of the IDF on military service women, Brigadier General Rachel Tevet-Wiesel has published the instruction, forbidding soldiers to put on t-shirts prints with sexual overtones, as well as state or military symbols.
Israeli media, including the Walla News website, noted that in recent years military personnel, mainly combat troops, as well as graduates of military courses order t-shirts with humorous inscriptions, which is a play on the names of military units or military occupations. Sometimes jokes are brutal in nature and have a sexual implication, as well as accompanied by sexual images.
Rachel Tevet-Wiesel indicates that such prints are a manifestation of contempt for women. In a letter sent to the military unit, said that the military would not be proper to wear such t-shirts. She also noted that these t-shirts do not paint any self-respecting man.
In her letter she also indicates that such t-shirts have no place in the army, it does not matter whether the paid application accepted money from the IDF or from personal funds of military personnel.
