Why Every Responsible American Should Turn Their Daughter into a Man

Please realize I did not write this article to downplay the role and strength of today's American women. Rather, I wished to point out how the Feminist movement has backfired. Having spent time in Iraq, Kuwait, Gitmo, and the DNC... I understand what it takes to survive in a war zone and I can assure you at all times, the male soldiers who were around me, would have done anything to guarantee my safe return back to base. I realized quickly the amount of danger I had subjected these male soldiers too and while I proved I could handle my own, it doesn't mean that they were any less ready to sacrifice their own life for mine.

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.
