Memo To The ACLU, Donít Put Women Into Combat
Forbes ^ | 11/29/2012 | Bill Flax

Many nights as I stroll into the kitchen after work three little ones come at a gallop. My daughters arrive first, bearing hugs, one on each arm. Then my son with a grin so bright and so big it barely fits his face lands a haymaker in the one spot a three year old can hurt you. As many parents can attest, boys and girls differ.

Try as the Left may to thwart reality, adult men and women remain different. It’s impossible to comprehend human interactions without recognizing this undeniable certainty. Nevertheless, the American Civil Liberties Union has launched legal action against the Department of Defense. The lawsuit seeks to pry open one of the last pursuits still exclusively masculine, serving in combat.

The Marine Corps has opened Infantry Officers Course for a pilot program to study how well women could perform in combat roles. The first two females, and only two entered, both quickly flopped; one on the first day, the other within a week. No female marines have yet opted for the next session.

Women aren’t lining up for these positions; it’s mostly activist intellectuals trying to shoehorn pretenses into reality.

When will the ACLU demand the drafting of pregnant women? Or an all female fighting force on the basis of “affirmative action”?

I notice that when it man hits a woman, that even here in the 21st century, it is still never called simply a “fist fight”.

As long as we are being fair and equal, when are women going to be required to sign up for Selective Service?

I say put all ACLU lawyers in combat first. Whoever survives can litigate this idiot case

This can’t be right. I’ve lost count of the number of Hollywood movies I’ve seen where women routinely kick men’s a$$es. Why would they make such movies if it weren’t true?

Like everything else in this once great nation Osama Obama sees our Armed Forces as one huge social experiment.If it will get him a good writeup in the CPUSA’s “Daily Revolution” he'll do it.

These ACLU lawyers remind me of the moron who tried to sue Hooters because they wouldn’t accept his application to work there as a waitress.
