Let us send our daughters to die in battle for the sake of gender neutrality! [Bumped]

Here we have a horrible idea, stacked on top of a bewilderingly idiotic idea, poured over a collection of reckless, ideologically-fueled, irrational, liberal feminist ideas. Basically, an insane idea had sexual relations with a moronic idea and the two gave birth to this idea.... we are a shameful, cowardly country if we would send our daughters off to war for no reason other than to obey our New-Age Gender Creeds. - - | The Matt Walsh Blog

Your Say

I'm pretty sure we still have a volunteer military. Only males are registered for the draft. Females don't want to go to war, then don't join. It's on them and their families.

The wierd thing is that the same people pushing for women in combat are the ones who say that the military is fascist and hyper masculine and that war is always evil and should be avoided. But let women fight too!

Now, I know that part of this is the idea that if girls are in the line of fire, people will be less likely to want war to begin with, but a lot of it is just flat out compartmentalization and lack of logic. They just don't make the connection any more than the people who want all smoking of tobacco banned and pot legalized.

Just as the Marine Corps this week delayed the physical requirements for females doing three pull ups for another year.

I guess to study why females aren't as physically adept as males are. Can't wait till they open up Special Ops for them. . . .just to be equal.

Total insanity!

Decline and failure is the Leftist agenda. Next they will demonstrate their sexism by demanding women be measured by lower standards than men.

First they demand 'fairness', then they demand 'more sophisticated standards', then they demand a govt solution to 'fix' their first 2 demands.

When can we just say no?

Tired of thinking about f3eminists, try this for amusment:

"Intercourse/PIV is always rape, plain and simple."

Just remember the general rule about women applies to feminists as well. No matter how crazy you think they are, you have underestimated it.

Actually since the military is all volunteer now I don't see the problem.

For those who point out that the military is volunteer, you are missing the point. Due to pressure from misguided feminists, the naive young women who join the military are being told that they can perform just as well as men in demanding combat positions. Even though the majority cannot meet the minimum physical requirements. These poor women are being brainwashed by the PC crowd into believing they won't be endangering themselves and their fellow soldiers by their lack of physical abilities to meet the demands of combat conditions. Apparently to admit men and women are different and men are more well-suited to some jobs is so abhorrent to the PC crowd that they would rather see young women disproportionately maimed and killed.

The military is all voluntary for women. For men, Selective Service registration for possible UNVOLUNTARY draft is mandatory from age 18 through 25. What are the chances of a draft, more when the military is in steady decline and POTUS believes the military is USAID with night vision goggles.

Remember the guy with the bullhorn at Ground Zero. He ran on "no more nation-building" and promptly set about 2 of the most pointless nation-building exercises to date. Now our messiah-in-chief, and his State Dept, think our military can be used anywhere, for any reason, including arming al Qaeda in Libya or Syria.

Really? "These poor women"? Great googly-moogly.
Come on, females are responsible for their decisions just like males. If they want to be mattress pads in the military then "you go girl!".

3. fucking. pull-ups.
Is this what it's come down to?
What could be more pathetic.
Sometimes, make that most of the time, it seems like I am trapped in Kindergartenworld.

Quit prevaricating. Women in combat is flat stupid, and if that needs explanation, I have no more to say to you.

Women bare the next generation and are necessary for a society to survive. A culture that sends its women into combat is committing suicide, but probably shouldn't survive anyway.

Meanwhile, in the old Soviet Union, Lyudmila Pavichenko is credited with 300 sniper kills. Manshuk Mametova, machine gunner, was honored as Hero of the Soviet Union for bravery. A partisan, Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya likewise was awarded that honor. The youngest woman, also a resistance fighter, to receive that medal was Zinaida Portnova.

Exactly. Anyone who has seen Soviet-era Russian women knows what the deal is. Social engineering does have it's consequences. I have no desire to see that repeated here. This is an exercise to handicap our troops, and everyone knows it.

"Lyudmila Pavichenko is credited with 300 sniper kills". You miss the point. Lets agree that some percentage of women can meet the physical demands of military. Then let them meet those physical requirements and not lower the standards. Women excel in nursing and have a long tradition in the military in nursing. The physical demands are high but such that most women could meet them. Women are good in administrative positions and have a long history in those jobs in the military and generally those people are not used in combat so let women fill those positions. Experience with women in the military shows us they can do as well as men in many of the traditionally "non-combat" positions. However once in a combat zone these positions are often tapped for combat duties and women do not excel and do not do well in combat. For this reason women should probably not be allowed into positions that might be used in a combat role. Combat can and will devolve into rigourous physical challenges and even physical combat. Putting women into that kind of situation is tantamount to intentionally sabotaging our military.

This isn't a situation of just equality and indifference. The weak link of a chain in the mail sorting line just slows things down. In combat, men die if someone cannot hack and has to be protected and pulled along. If they cannot do the job THEY MUST NOT BE THERE.

Being voluntary or not is irrelevant, this is the military and it is an entirely different situation.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at January 4, 2014 10:39 AM

Well, as a woman I can say honestly and humbly that I am SO grateful for the men who are willing to do what it takes, even to die, to protect this nation and all of its citizens. Thank God for men with enough testosterone, character and clarity of thought to do the job. As a woman, I am happy to back them with any effort to support them and make their lives easier and more meaningful in whatever way I can. Raising kids, working at home or in the workforce, voting, carrying my load and his (when possible), I'm ever conscious and deeply appreciative of real men. We women would NEVER survive without you.

Now having said that, I must add that our beautiful, feminine (not feminist) daughter can easily do 3 pull-ups and with her black belt could probably whip half the candy ass metrosexuals in NYC.

This decision, and all the other ones, are being made by people who despise you and all you stand for. This is an Atheist Progressive jihad, nothing less. The purpose is to rub in your faces each and every capitulation you make to them by upping the ante the next time. Teach gay porn in schools? Sure. Send women off to the frontlines to get blown to pieces or raped after capture? No big. The useful idiots don't get it and the clearsighted leaders actually seek more and more grief for you. The purpose IS your agony and degradation. Nothing less.
In C.S.Lewis's "Perelandra" the hero, Ransom, fighting the possessed physicist Weston, discovers what hatred is actually for. It is to power you up while you are battling evil. In the story, that's its real purpose.
Where is your hatred? What will it take to make it explode? 'Performance Art' involving the rape of children? A Constitutional amendment forbidding Christian Americans to vote or even to defend themselves? The loss of a city to a nuke or to an engineered plague?
Where is your hatred?

Northeast female news reporter: "How do you feel about women serving in the infantry?"

Male infantry platoon sergeant, 82nd Airborne Division: "I'm all for it."

Reporter, surprised: "Really? Why?"

Platoon sergeant: "I have three sons and if three women take their place and get blown to bits it sounds like a good swap to me."

Reporter wordlessly snaps notebook shut and walks away.

I was present when that conversation took place in 1988 at Ft Bragg, NC.
