Why Every Responsible American Should Turn Their Daughter into a Man

You are long as the standards are kept the same...that is the rub. I know a few women who could pass the Ranger standards (although it would be a very small few)...why not give them the shot. I guess I look at the utility of things too...the use of woman in Iraq (and I'm assuming in Afghanistan) kept us safer. They were able to get in closer to the kids/women and gain better intel than we could just dealing with the Iraqi men. Maybe I'm dreaming, but maintain the standards and give everyone a shot.

Raising a daughter is tricky enough.  Last week, the job of all American parents became much more complicated.  Not only do parents of daughters have to worry about dates to the dance, mean girls on the playground, or making sure their daughters have good academic discipline but now parents also have to worry about the idea that if there ever is a national draft again, their daughter might just have the opportunity to sit in a foxhole, wet, cold and muddy, gripping the steel of an M-4 in her chapped hands, waiting to kill or be killed.
