I love women and equality and don’t subscribe to ‘barefoot and pregnant’ thinking but the eternal wars and militarization of every aspect of this country have gone too far.
Yeah baby, you’ve come a long way. Step right up to the front lines of kill and be killed. Leave your babies at home because it’s all for their freedom.
Don’t think twice it’s alright.
Whatever happened to women as nurturers of peace? Lost in the fog of contrived feminism? No matter how insane, equality must be taken to the extreme? Being a duped pawn of the masters of war and going toe to toe with the ‘enemy’ is not just for young men anymore. Here’s your chance. Pull that trigger. Killing is thrilling.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Women, who make up some 14 percent of the armed forces, should finally be permitted to serve fully in front-line combat units, a military advisory panel says.
The call by a commission of current and retired military officers to dismantle the last major area of discrimination in the armed services could set in motion another sea change in military culture as the armed forces, generations after racial barriers fell, grapples with the phasing out of the ban on gays serving openly.
It is time “to create a level playing field for all qualified service members,” the members said Friday.
Please ladies, speak out. There’s a place for you … on the front lines for peace.
Anti-war songs, unfortunately, have never gone out of style for some of us.
Simple, direct, intense — like a stake through a vampire’s black heart.
The latest war news that women may soon be able to serve on submarines and ‘officially’ be assigned to front line combat roles is seen by some as a great step forward in ‘women’s rights.’
I’ll preface this by saying that I have always been in favor of women having equal rights in all societal aspects to men. Education, work opportunities, politics, pay … sure, there should be no discrimination.
If a woman wants to show her stuff and kill or be killed right alongside the propagandized men in the military, so be it. Let’s not stop them. Free will is always best but let’s not encourage them, especially with lies.
My question is why would women want to be equal opportunity killers. Others my disagree but it always seemed to me that women have an innate sense of nurturing life and an aversion to war that historically takes their men from them and leaves their children fatherless. That’s not to say that women should be kept barefoot and pregnant but modern day social engineering has attempted to destroy a woman’s deep seated feeling to protect life. When that is gone what’s left, a barbaric society where the feminine balance to masculine aggressiveness ceases to exist?
Let’s not forget that we men would be proud to stand side by side with our women in the protection of our homes and country if violent attacks upon us were real and not the lies and brainwashing of our imperial ‘leaders’ and media to create enemies in foreign lands. Women have fallen for the scam just have the men.
You might look at it as a continuation of the Israelization of our society and military.
Fighting wars for Israel and U.S. hegemony demands both genders fulfill their part.
Fortunately for the military; unemployment, poor education and the increasing destruction of the traditional family have created an underclass where some women see few options other than the military. Leave the kids with someone else, go to war and maybe it will work out. Sometimes it doesn’t.
Just this week, Tennessee Army National Guard pilot Billie Jean Grinder, 25 years old of Gallatin, was killed in a helicopter crash Sunday in Iraq, the first woman Guard member to die there since the war began.
“She loved to have a good time.” “She had tattoos and liked going fast and doing things that other people might see as dangerous.
“She had absolutely no fear.
“She was also the sweetest, kindest person you could ever hope to meet.”
Equal opportunity to voluntarily bow to our profiteering warlords and to die in vain.
As the old cliche goes, “You’ve come a long way baby.”
“When we carry our eyes back through the long records of our history, we see wars of plunder, wars of conquest, wars of religion, wars of pride, wars of succession, wars of idle speculation, wars of unjust interference, and hardly among them one war of necessary self-defence in any of our essential or very important interests.”
