Since the beginning of time, men have cared for women in the patriarchal manner. This means that they assume the basic, natural role as protectors of women. “What’s this have to do with war?” you might ask. This means that all male military personnel, in wartimes and combat, will be compelled to put their own lives at risk (more than they already are) for the women they are fighting along side. Now I ask, why would the U.S. government allow such a weakness to be had when it is not necessary?
