Women in the Military

At the risk of becoming obsessed with Alas, let me point out how STUPID this post there is.

Apparently, being concerned about men would react to women in combat is "coddling" them.

Yet, apparently "the angry black woman" thinks that we need to accommodate pregnancies in the military, and has nothing to say about the lowered physical standards for women, or notices that if men treated women the same way they treat other men, they would likely be sued for harassment.

And of course, "A whole chunk of the DADT debate was shaped by this sense that men’s sensibilities are, apparently, just too damn delicate to deal with the possibility that Joe over there might like to look at penises now and then."

Of course, when women express similar concerns, we are supposed to have training sessions about sexual harassment, etc.. Of course women need to be coddled.

The hypocrisy here is astounding.

That is all.
