This is a prime example of ‘enlightened’ thinkers believing that they can overcome primal human behavior with well intentioned concepts like
‘equal-opportunity’ and ‘diversity’. The whole thing just shows what happens when people who have no concept of war and human behavior believe
that a policy can change reality.
I have serious issues with women in the military, but only for practical reasons. The way I see it, there is really only 2 options.
1) Women are not allowed into the military at all. This would be quite a nice way to simplify the issues involved here, among others.
2) Women and men are allowed to do any job in equal opportunity, provided they can meet a UNIFORM standard. There is no differentiation between the
Both are offered sterilizing/birth control medication. Any woman found to be pregnant is automatically discharged along with the man who impregnated
her (if known).
This would require a massive overhaul of the (stupid) American social framework. In all honesty, I would prefer number 2 where all people really
Women and men are not equal in America.
