Whoa! That was a well deserved rant. <heh> It's only going to get better, too. My former business partner had a saying "Swimming a lap in a pool of vomit". I think we're in for a marathon session.

From one of the linked articles:

"If I were on the front line, or a helicopter pilot, I would still expect the same politeness I would anywhere. But that’s why women shouldn’t be there: If a woman and a man are in combat together, the man, if he’s been brought up right, will sacrifice his life for the woman. And that’s the way it should be—which is why we have to define roles and keep women out of certain ones."

AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH.

Do these women really fail to understand that the reason men were once expected to sacrifice their lives for women is because women's reproductive power outstrips that of men? One man can sire many children among a group of women; one woman in a group of men can only have one child at a time.

However, now that propagation of the species is not longer of paramount concern, that rule no longer applies in a meaningful way-- why should it be used to justify keeping women from fulfilling roles in which they'd be valuable?

SO IRRITATING.

Got to remember: They don't "believe" in Evolution, so your arguments are meaningless to them. They fall on deaf ears.
