Let us send our daughters to die in battle for the sake of gender neutrality!
http://themattwalshblog.com ^ | January 3, 2014 | Matt Walsh

There are three different types of ideas: good ideas, bad ideas, and ideas so horrifically stupid that they will be mocked and scorned by our descendants for centuries to come.

Modern left-wingers typically trade in the second sort of idea, while occasionally conjuring up something that unquestionably falls into the third category.

Speaking of which, there’s this.

After discovering that half of the female Marines can’t meet the minimum physical fitness requirements, usually failing to do three pull-ups, the Corps has decided to delay the standards. This is all part of the process of “equalizing” physical requirements so as to integrate women into combat roles.

Here we have a horrible idea, stacked on top of a bewilderingly idiotic idea, poured over a collection of reckless, ideologically-fueled, irrational, liberal feminist ideas. Basically, an insane idea had sexual relations with a moronic idea and the two gave birth to this idea.

In other words, I disagree.

A country that sends it's women to fight it's wars is not fit to be called a country. And by the way this is a Congressional call and Congress has never said women are allowed in direct combat roles. But when has the Constitution ever mattered? Not when dictators are calling the shots.

As a soldier vet, the very idea of women in combat horrifies me.

Here’s what I want to know, which could help settle the argument.

Since they are no longer required to do even one pull up, and couldn’t fight off a male attacker with their hands, are we going to let them have ammo in their weapons ?

We live in a politically correct world now. The idea that girls can do anything that boys can is ingrained in school as girls grow up. So our culture celebrates women firemen, police officers, and women in the military now. All jobs which used to be done only by men.

U.S. Marine women can’t even do one pull-up. Yet we expect female soldiers to carry their wounded comrades to safety during combat.

I’m a full believer in equal rights and the unisex concept.

I say physical standards should to equalized to that of the weakest person. Why should we jeopardize the self esteem of the weaker people in such a degrading way as to make them perform to some stupid standard?

Many men and women are scared to death of guns, guns are violent and they hurt people. Guns should be banned, this includes toy guns, pictures of guns and even using the word gun should be banned in our armed forces with strict penalties.

In times of war our armed forces should proudly march towards the enemy with baskets of fruit, flowers and food to give to our comrades on the other side. This showing of peace will undoubtedly show the entire world we are non-violent.

Of course I’m being sarcastic. Some leftist nutcase has probably in all seriousness put forth such totally looney ideas.

I believe I am equal to or more capable than most of the guys I work next to in the private sector. I also like to work out a lot. I would never dream of being able to stand next to my little brother in Iraq or Afghanistan. This is going to get people killed.

I know it’s getting far more commonplace, I won’t allow it on my watch.

I once held a door open for a lady at a store and she got very ticked off at me, said she can do it herself and she didn’t need a man to do it. I said that’s fine, I don’t care if you wanted me to or not, if my mother caught me not doing it, I’d be toast... so this is for my mother heh.

And by the way this is a Congressional call and Congress has never said women are allowed in direct combat roles.

***********
Very good point.

Here are some interesting facts about military experience in the congress courtesy of the Congressional Research Service:

“At the beginning of the 113th Congress, there were 108 Members (20% of the total membership) who had served or were serving in the military, 10 fewer than at the beginning of the 112th Congress (118 Members) and 12 fewer than in the 111th Congress (120 members).

The number of veterans in the 113th Congress reflects the trend of steady decline in recent decades in the number of Members who have served in the military. For example, 64% of the members of the 97th Congress (1981-1982) were veterans; and in the 92nd Congress (1971-1972), 73% of the Members were veterans.”

The problem is twofold, in that few women, but some, can meet the physical requirements. However, the flip side of this is that the *best* male warriors often have a very strong instinct to protect females in danger.

You get some unstoppable warrior type, a real Rambo, and put a female near him in real, or just perceived danger, and Rambo might turn to Jello.

And no number of female soldiers will make up for losing even a few Rambo-types.

Importantly, there are a lot of men who would be more than willing to send female soldiers “out to draw fire”, but the vast majority of such men are pencil pushers and glass jaws not worth their salt in combat.

And this goes to an even deeper false paradigm in the military: that *any* guy can be trained to be a warrior.

In truth, you are lucky if 1 in 100 *combat* soldiers are “real warriors”. The rest are just along to hold their coat. And the ratio of combat soldiers to combat support and combat service support soldiers is something like 1:20.

The idea of “every man a soldier” only really goes back to the age of Napoleon, and the creation of mass armies. And even then, all the way through to Vietnam, on average hundreds of thousands, or even millions of bullets had to be expended for each enemy bullet casualty.

Except when fired from the gun of a real warrior, in which case, many or most of his bullets would cause an enemy casualty.

So, the bottom line is that putting women in combat roles will just end up getting more women and men killed, and many fewer missions accomplished. But those obsessed with putting women in combat roles don’t give a shiat about that.

Had that happen to me more than twice in a year. I didn’t care about their pouty crap because it’s been instinct to us since we were kids. Even the time when I’m on the train and you’re the only dude sitting down and the old lady refuses to sit, it makes you uncomfortable so I just stand.

Fox news had a female gunnery Sgt and capt marines on this morning, both no longer active.

The insisted the failure was because the women weren’t allowed to train for the standard. They said the standard should be the same for both sxes.

The message was that with training most women should be able to meet the standard. At least the minimum.

We live in a world of effeminate men trashing chivalry and hiding behind skirts like little girls flattering daddy by tattle tales.

We don't have chivalry because we don't need chivalry. The demand for chivalry has taken a nose dive. There are more than one reason for this, but a big one is technology.

Technology has made everyone richer; by leveraging the power of technology, everyone has more power over their environment, more control of their personal circumstances. This cheapens the value of chivalry. Who needs a man to hold the door when a computer opens the door for you.

If there is a real war with a real enemy at our gates, all this will be swept away in a flash. The women in the army will melt away, the homosexuals in the army will stay if they can contribute physically and mentally to killing the enemy, but their behavior patterns will not be tolerated. The instinct for species survival will kick in, and homosexuals have nothing to offer in this domain.

Women and homosexuals in the military are just two out of many manifestations of our very wealthy society. When we can no longer afford them, they will vanish like a morning fog. For now, we can afford them.

Me too. Its one thing if the Chi Coms are invading Atlanta but sending women overseas to fight on the frontlines of foreign misadventures is beyond the pale. They are not physically up to it and I would even project they are not emotionally up to it.

On another front picture the American public watching women prisoners being beheaded on Al Jazeera. That is what will happen just as sure as we are talking about it.

Go to any gym, and the gym rats who are there five times a week can all do pull ups. Women included.

We have people in the service now who don’t physically train hard enough, and a command structure which allows it.

It is the RECRUITER'S responsibility to ensure that the recruit can meet the minimum standards prior to going to boot. The recruit is responsible, as well, but the senior rank is held most responsible.

With respect to "not being allowed to train...", it is my understanding that the female recruits were told to perform their pullups at the same moment in Boot as the men. If the man fails, they are put in remedial, or put into a later cycle in order to bring themselves in line with the requirements. If they fail to meet the minimum, they fail - and don't graduate.

These two women, whom I thank for their service, are part of the problem - they are NOT part of the solution.

Even if I could pull myself up three times from a dead hang, which I’m not sure if I could, it would only be because I weigh a lot less than an average guy. I put on my brothers helmet for about 30 seconds and thought I was going to fall over.

I’m sure there’s a support role the ladies can play, but its ridiculous to think they can pull equal weight patrolling a city in 100+ degree heat under threat of attack while carrying 40 pounds of weight. They will pass out, and leave the men open to attack.

You make a good point. Our great wealth, ubiquitous conveniences, and relative national security have afforded us the luxury of living in a comfortable world that has enabled us to engage in all manner of social experimentation. However, this can all be quickly swept away when an existential threat arises. Then it will be back to reality.
