Why Every Responsible American Should Turn Their Daughter into a Man

I think she is correct. I would not want to be in a fox hole with an attractive female. The natural tendency is to protect the female even if it cost you your life. There are those on the left that want males and females to be equal. If God wanted us equal, there would have only been one sex. Men are not better, only different. The military used to incorporate good morals in the attitudes of their men. It is different now, but not better.

What is this silly nonsense about men being protective? The number one cause of injury to women is men. There are thousands of women in shelters trying to escape abusive husbands and many women die at the hands of abusive men. You just don't like the idea of a woman having the right to defend herself.

“What is this silly nonsense”??? Women have every right to defend themselves and many do.

Men that abuse women aren't men they're animals.

Guess I am a throwback to a time when women were women and men were men.

...different, but not better…males and females are different…having that protective instinct regarding the female of our species…I would not want women in direct combat roles…for that would cause undue pressures…other than just watching one’s back and mine theirs. Just the possibility of a female being captured or killed by the enemy is not very appealing; when the idea of being captured or killed by the enemy for anyone isn’t desirable, it becomes 100x more undesirable for women.

Having said that…I am sure that, if require to do so, some women are very capable and if needed I am sure many would volunteer for combat; but why should they when they do not have too? Just to be politically correct…has never and will never, win wars.

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.
