ADF group seen as sexist and racist - ABC

10:05 am on 2 March 2012

A private Facebook group of former and serving Australian Defence Force members has been exposed as carrying sexist and racist comments.

The ABC says the site gives a disturbing insight into a sexist and racist culture that exists inside Australian Defence Force ranks.

The ABC says the group has more than 1000 former and serving members of the Royal Australian Regiment and acts as an online meeting place where racist, sexist and abusive views are shared.

The site refers to Muslims as ragheads and suggests immigrants are not welcome, with one post saying all women are filthy, lying whores.
