Swiss Guards Politically Incorrect

It had to happen sooner or later... it would appear that the fems are protesting about being unable to join the elite Swiss Guards.

New recruits are sworn in every year on May 6, commemorating the date on which 147 Swiss soldiers died defending the Pope during an attack on Rome on May 6, 1527.
