You're wrong. If it was about wanting to do the best to defend their country, military feminists would never have gone along with all the lowered and separate standards that currently apply to all military positions open to both sexes.

The best contribution women can make to national defense is by mostly staying out of it. This is all about military feminists - officers mostly - wanting to validate themselves because they cannot accept their innate inferiority relative to men.

How ridiculous and childish!

Male or female, those of us who've been around for a while can recall clearly the objectives of the feminist movement as it geared up in the early 1970s. Workplace fairness was the goal.

A lot of manufactured indignation attended the feminist rising; e. g, who says we have to wear bras? Basically, nonetheless, what the rebels said they wanted was opportunity too long denied them by chauvinistic males. Opportunity they received from government, and in a larger sense, from the hand of a culture they prodded or embarrassed into agreement with most of what they said. Jobs opened up; power,...
