Skip to comments.Really, Leon Panetta? You want Sandra Fluke in combat?

Yes, women in combat. Women, who cant figure out how to go to the Target pharmacy and $9/month birth control, will be gunning down terrorists. Women, who think that telling them to buy their own birth control, cupcake, is a war on women, will be seeing actual combat. Women who complain about a rape culture want girls out into the front lines as rape-bait if captured by the enemy (and those front lines will be six thousand miles away from the nearest Planned Parenthood clinic). The same people who think that its a right wing nutjob idea for women teachers to be ready to use force to defend their pupils against school shooters also believe that there those same women can use deadly force to defend their country against the Taliban.
I would be cracking up if the consequences to this absurdity were not so deadly.
Seriously, chickies, you cant have it both ways. Youre either wilting wallflowers who cant be expected to figure out how to bargain-shop for condoms, or youre a big strong woman who can gun down the Muslim Brotherhood like a boss.
It would also be nice if we could do a quick primer on why women have historically not been allowed in combat; if you answer the evil patriarchy, then you have issues. Our generation, and even Da TechGuys generation, has not seen a war that wiped out most of the young male population. But those exist and tend to crop up with frightening regularity - WWII, WWI, the Civil War, the American Revolution. Hundreds of thousands of young men dead in all of them, but the country kept going strong.
You can kill half of your young men and repopulate your country in relatively short order...

So, all females are also going to be required to sign up at age 18 for selective service, right? All things being ‘equal’ of course .......
Oh, I think you and I know better than that. Get this: I had to sign up for the draft AFTER I served in the Army because my birthdate was 35 days after the cut-off.
Good points. There it is.
Sure Sandra Fluke in combat, you just tell her that the opposing force refuses to pay for her birth control and abortion and she’ll go Xena on them!Not as good looking but just as DYKE!
If they could make a reality show out of that, I'd watch it.
Get real. This has nothing to do with equal treatment. It’s about women officers wanting to get promoted. If this was really about military effectiveness, then a single standard would be created for each job, based on the real world requirements of the job, that would then be applied equally without regard to gender. That’s not going to happen.
Women are honorably serving in many military jobs. That can’t be denied. If they can do the job and meet the standards without harming the unit’s effectiveness, then by all means let them serve. However, every military job doesn’t involve going back to separate billets every night.
BTW, I love how the current administration tells straight men to shut up if they happen to have a flaming gay roommate, but no way would they billet men and women together. Gay rights are all about supressing the rights of the majority. The same thing goes for women in combat. So what if the unit has to make special accomodations for women. So what if the men have to pick up the slack? The military will suck it up and hide the problems like it always does.
This is about feminists, many of whom have no intention of ever serving, who pride themselves on their equality. It’s about female officers getting their tickets punched so they can move up faster. It’s not about military effectiveness.
Too many feminists have apparently watched Starship Troopers. They see women showering and bunking with the men as true equals. They see women even kicking ass in hand-to-hand combat with men. Yeah. A Hollywood fantasy. That’s what we’re pursuing.
They will indeed have to sign up. The last federal court ruling on the draft registration was about why boys had to register but not women. Was it discriminatory?
The court ruled that since women could not by law be used in combat roles, they could not be subject to a draft designed to fill those very roles.
There is no legal justification whatsoever now that the draft registration can be restricted to boys.
The famale officer corps was willing to draft our daughters so they can be eligibile for higher command levels. Disgusting.
I will enthusiastically help my daughter evade it.
Put her on point.
“Put her on point.”
Her idea of the “pointy end of the stick” and ours might be different.
And JMHO she would do a better job than Panetta, at least you know your going to get screwed by her, where as the current SecDef will disarm you in the presents of your enemys, the great POS that he is...
I could see her as a camp follower.
By allowing women on the front line, liberals hope to cause leaders to think twice before deciding which battles are worth fighting.
Combine this with Obama’s litmus test that Commanders be willing to fire on American citizens and you may find more clues to his plans to destroy America.
Er, yeah....why not? ;-)
I thought the ‘dripping sarcasm’ would be obvious enough not to need a /S tag. :-) Of course it’s not about “equal” treatment ...... as you stated in your post.
Without getting too deep in the weeds, it really makes me angry that the feminazis have done such a good job wrecking the inate differences between men and women, trying to get their “equality” cr@p shoved down everyone’s throat. Men and women were created differently for different purposes and to disrespect that by trying to make it all homogenous regardless of those differences in my mind goes against nature and the Creator and speaking of that, they’ve worked hard to deny being uniquely feminine or masculine & to make this somehow ‘not open-minded’ which leads right into promoting the men/men & women/women marriage thing, too. Interesting how even in those unnatural relationships, there is often one more masculine partner & one more feminine ... all the p.c. B.S. just can’t quite escape the “natural order”.
Being created differently doesn’t mean there isn’t crossover and men/women can’t do each other’s jobs & do them very well. For an old-fashioned example, on my grandparent’s farm, granny worked alongside granddad to make a living & when the tractor was broken, SHE was the mechanic (could fix anything - he was totally inept mechanically). As for me, I like a man that I know will be protective and defend me ... who opens doors and treats me well and with repect. I say ‘thank you’, accept his protection and care, and show my appreciation. It’s a beautiful thing.
Send worthless female libs into combat because their demise will actually benefit the gene pool. Imagine Sandra Fluke clearing a mine field . . . imagine red haze.
Sorry. I didn’t catch the sarcasm. I hate it when that happens. FReegards!
