impaler: TheEdibleSnuggie: Cue feminist outrage that men and women in the military now playing equal roles in 3...2...1...I don't think you are aware of what a feminist actually is.
Smeggy Smurf: The first time some gash has to face some goat rapist in hand to hand she's going to either tear his farking head off or get herself raped. I'm betting on raped.
IamAwake: about damn time. Another 500 years or so, we might have started looking egalitarian in all respects other than socio-economic class...were it not for the fact we won't make it another 50 due to the socio-economic imbalance globally :P
shotglasss: Will the lezbos get their own division?
doyner: Jegred2: extreme leftistsBless your heart.
Theaetetus: Shame it's false. Or rather, his "reason" is false. It wasn't "simply because they had no place to pee" but because they couldn't go someplace private and not get raped:Professor Helen Benedict of the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University is an author of two books on sexual assault and sex crimes. She has spent months interviewing more than 20 women veterans of the Iraq war for up to 10 hours each in preparation for a new book about them.According to Benedict, sexual harassment is almost unilateral throughout the military and it is something very few men in the military have to endure. Sexual assault and rape is a real and ever present danger from their own comrades, male comrades. This is a well known fact amongst the military in Iraq. All the women Benedict spoke to told her that their officers in Iraq routinely warned them they should never go to the latrine or showers without another woman for protection....Colonel Janis Karpinski has been an outspoken critic of how female soldiers are treated in Iraq. Last year she testified at the Bush Crimes Commission Hearings, a mock trial. Below is an excerpt from her testimony:"Because the women, in fear of getting up in the hours of darkness to go out to the portatoilets or the latrines, were not drinking liquids after 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon. And in 120-degree heat or warmer, because there was no air conditioning at most of the facilities, they were dying from dehydration in their sleep. And rather than make everybody aware of that, because that's shocking -- and as a leader, if that's not shocking to you, then you're not much of a leader -- so what they told the surgeon to do was, "Don't brief those details anymore. And don't say specifically that they're women. You can provide that in a written report, but don't brief it in the open anymore.""According to Professor Benedict, Karpinski had told her there were male soldiers lying in wait out there for the women soldiers. They would pull ...
rickycal78: Wasn't a whole lot of rape necessary
doyner: USP .45: As long as they don't reduce the physical standards for infantry, this is mostly a non-issue.However, since the libs always like to guilt trip America into what he rest of the western nations are doing, can we list which countries allow woman in infantry positions?I know Canada doesn't.Sooooo, it's ok to look to other countries for leadership now? Whatever happened to American exceptionalism?
DrZiffle: Came into thread for pics of female Israeli soldiers./left crestfallen

How the fark does it work?
Jegred2: Great, now the army can spend millions training women so that most of them can fail out. Definitely should have a pre-test for women so that money doesn't go down the tube. And before you liberal feelgood farkers come running, stfu, women are built differently than men, most of them aren't up to snuff for infantry work. Not to mention how many men will die because a women can't drag their 200lb + 100lb of gear body. That's also not counting the pregnancies that will happen. For all of you non-military farkers out there, you don't get a replacement for a pregnant member of your team. You just have to run a man down because that slot is filled. Only amazons on birth control will work out, and its not even worth it for the amount of hacks the army will have to wade through to get them.
Moquary: "Reality" photo looks like a family day exercise where they let the families of a service member get all cammied up and go out in the field to have fun and "see" what their loved one does for a living.
Marine1: lennavan: Marine1: So, other than to pat ourselves on the back as a "progressive" society, what's the real purpose behind this?Being slightly less sexist?Sexist? What's sexism have to do with war?/before people start presuming I'm a Marine in this thread, it was a name I picked while playing Halo when I was 14.//full disclosure
m00: impaler: TheEdibleSnuggie: Cue feminist outrage that men and women in the military now playing equal roles in 3...2...1...I don't think you are aware of what a feminist actually is.A feminist is someone who believes in the myth of the male patriarchy, and advocates equal rights for women where it's convenient for women, but unequal responsibilities women when it's convenient for women.Someone who believes that men and women, while inherently biologically different, should have equal protection under the law and women should not be barred from access to societal, political, or economic roles solely based on their gender is just a logical person.Let me give you an example. In 2013 if there is a cruise or passenger ship that sinks and there isn't enough lifeboats, it's "women and children first." Steven Hawking (or any man, regardless of his accomplishments) would be demanded by society to give up his spot on the lifeboat for any high-school dropout drug addict woman, solely because he's a man. Society values women above men, and society expects men to protect women even if it means death. Even if the man is infinitely more accomplished than the woman, doesn't matter. Men in our society are disposable. Women must be cherished and preserved at all costs. There is a very good and obvious evolutionary reason for that, as had been necessary for the survival of our species for hundreds of thousands of years. This is why we send MEN to die for stupid wars, and not women. This is why sex-crimes and domestic abuse are only really recognized if the perpetrator is a man and the victim is a woman. Trying being a man and claiming you were date-raped by a woman who got you intoxicated, and see how far that gets you. Feminism is not interested in equality; if it were, it would be interested in treating every person as an individual who should be judged on his or her own accomplishment and by his or her own actions. But Feminism is not interested in equality, it is interested ...
cman: Harvey Manfrenjensenjen: How about we just get rid of the draft instead? I find that to be more of an anachronism and source of ire than prohibiting women from combat roles.We dont have a draft...
Marine1: How long before they have to sign up for the SSS?/or figure out that a baby is a good way to get out of shooting at some beady-eyed motherfarker in the Afghan wastes?
somemoron: blatz514: [shoeblogs.com image 589x452]You say Ukraine is weak?Those are some damn short skirts if they are actual military personnel. I would have to see more to verify the authenticity of these photos. For that matter, they mostly seem to have long hair. Not a good trait for a combat soldier. Again, though, I need more pictorial evidence to be sure.\Every last one of them could kick my ass, even if they were in high heels.
knbwhite: I got no problem with women and gays serving in any job they qualify for, but I do have one comment. When my mom informed me I should have no problem with gays in the field with me because they weren't interested in me because I am afflicted with teh straight. I told her to head on down to the college and shower with the football team, because hey, they aren't interested in her.Any farkette's/mom's have a comment?

Fail in Human Form: Unless there's ONE physical standard for both men and women then this is going to be a huge clusterfark.
Nabb1: Completely juvenile, sophomoric and crass.+1
