Women in the Military
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:44:10 AM »
OK, there is a place for women in the military.

I just happen to think in a foxhole or the tight confines of a ship of war isn't one of them...and a submarine is about as tight and confined as it gets!

Yes, more soft space...just what a warship needs more of!   ::facepalm::

And, how can I put this politely?  I dunno, I quit. 

The last thing I want to be worrying about as I go into combat is pussy!

There, that's it in a nutshell!

With apologies to our ladies in the audience...no disrespect intended!

None taken.  I'm not on board with women in subs or in combat either.

Many days, I'm thinkin' women's suffrage was a big mistake.

In general I don't think the traditional Judeo/Christian (let alone biological) roles of men and women and raising children in a representative republic was fully appreciated or understood...populism and the bastardizing of republicanism with democracy began the insidious incremental crawl into selfish whimsy that has coalesced into this poorly bonded oft-neglected and abused alloy that people think of as a functional political/social/economic fabric euphemistically called a society.

Shat happens...especially if one doesn't care...or bother to understand.

Most large "causes" and organizations have been overrun by lefty activists, including women's rights.   My cousin likes helping the environment,  but has nothing to do with any environmental group anymore.   He has found them to be all crazy kooks.   So he had to stop,  to save his sanity (and not to be connected with criminals,  many of them now are).     

The military held out a long time,  but its hard to keep a large organization from drifting leftward.   Especially with a so called commander in chief like Barry.   

There is a reason why some founders wanted to keep things small and "unorganized".
