I don't see it as controversial. Yamada Senssei's views are well known but he always makes it plain that they are his views and not an official USAF stance.
This stance puts a mighty strain on credibility don't you think? Would not a discriminating person that values integrity resign from such a position? Budo is hard in many ways.

Either way when stuck in a no win situation one must make hard choices - or not.

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.
