Politico reports Tuesday that the Space Force has made its first two hires, and they’re both women. “The push to be more welcoming to women is one part of the Space Force’s larger effort to build a service that’s more reflective of a 21st-century workplace, including keeping gendered terms out of the service’s culture and offering more flexible policies to enter and exit the service over the course of a career,” Politico reports.
The first hires of the Space Force will be working on the ground (as will most members — they’re not flying around in X-Wings blasting TIE fighters) and will still have access to Twitter where, sadly, they’ll be faced with tweets like this one from Jesse Kelly that we’re posting to shame him for being sexist, not because it gave us a chuckle.
Well at least there’s nothing for them to run into in space. https://t.co/wFjVFrUlpm

Trust me. If they can hit the only light pole in the grocery store parking lot they can damn sure find a meteor.

They'll come back from space with yellow bollard paint on the fender, just wait.

They'll back into the ISS, and swear up and down that they didn't see it.

As long as we never need a space shuttle parallel parked, it should be mostly fine

Shuttles have turn signals?
— Idiot Savant (@GregShook64) March 10, 2020
In space, no one can hear your turn signal.
— Norman McG (@Normadamous) March 10, 2020
Probably won’t need turn signals, and unless there’s a garage door for them to smash into I’m sure it’ll go well. pic.twitter.com/hFDsDE505m
