Gender Madness Taking Over the Military and Schools
The American Thinker ^ | 2/13/2014 | Derrick Wilburn

Posted on 02/13/2014 6:47:06 AM PST by Sioux-san

There are those in this country who view any separation of the genders along any lines at all to be discriminatory. They literally view the words, "MEN" and "WOMEN" above bathroom entrances in the same vein as signs in the 1940′s that read "WHITES" and "COLOREDS" above those same doors. Our founding documents and most of our core personal beliefs reinforce the understanding that all men (and women) are created equal. But is equal, equivalent? According to Merriam-Webster:

EQUIVALENT 1 : equal in force, amount, or value; also : equal in area or volume but not superposable 2 : like in signification or import 3 : corresponding or virtually identical especially in effect or function 4: equal in might or authority 5 : having the same chemical combining capacity

By this definition women and men are anything but equivalent. However, the unrelenting drive by the politically-correct left to somehow make us, to force us into equivalency knows no brakes. In fact it's an ideology and movement that has its foot firmly on the gas pedal.

Under only one condition would I support women in front-line combat positions: The entire unit must be female. Come on, Amazons - show us what you can do! You don't need those boys.

The ones who are running the show are certifiably insane - I guess we must be insane, too, for letting them get away with it without even a fight.

Are there any female plumbers? I know one female truck driver. I can’t remember seeing any female UPS drivers. How about construction workers and I don’t mean the ladies who hold the signs.

I agree. People took to the streets to protest the Viet Nam war but the destruction of America is underway and we just can’t seem to get too worked up about it.

According to Merriam-Webster...

Unfortunately, the dictionary became irrelevant the moment they threw the definition of marriage out the window. Words now mean anything the postmodern liberals desire them to mean.

The truest irony of all is that they will say men’s and women’s signs are tantamount to “whites” and “coloreds”, and blame the GOP, when we all know which party is the party of segregation.

Women are the new Negros, stating truth or facts about either will get you run out of town/work/ elected office on a rail.

It seems kinda of backwards.

Equivalent means functional the same. Equal means exactly the same.

As for combat ... give it to them, and give them the M240’s to carry around too.

If there are any female plumbers, truck drivers, construction workers who are truly doing the job without calling in a man to do the hard bits, they are so rare as to be considered nothing but aberrations. You don’t change everything for aberrations.

Closer to home, just go into Lowe’s or Home Depot - lots of women working there, but when it comes to the heavy lifting or knowledge on most things, it is the men who step up. If the most qualified were hired, there would be far fewer women at Lowe’s.

Also, let us not forget the true goal of the Leftie/Libs in all of this - Destruction of America - again, do we let this go down without a fight?

Gee. I wonder who would want to do that.

Societies where women have no role that is special to them often become societies where women are debased and abused.

My comment there:
The USA is in the thrall of social madness. This is often seen on the cusp of revolution and collapse. The reset to eternal natural law is going to be brutal. Do we believe, for example, that our future enemies will also handicap themselves with PC insanity? How will our PC-bound feminized and homosexualized military fare when we have to fight real battles like Normandy, Iwo Jima, the retreat in Korea, Hue City or Fallujah? Alas, Brave New Babylon.

America is insane.

The only time in which this country will give the women-in-combat matter attention is when large numbers of them start getting captured, used for propaganda, and ultimately killed.

“Destruction of America - again, do we let this go down without a fight?”

Enough platitudes. How about some real ways to wage this “fight”?

"Envision a male soldier fails his fitness test..Why should he lose his job for running a 16:45, but a woman in his unit be able to keep hers while running a 19:40? It's only a matter of time until a soldier in such a predicament lawyers up and sues the U.S. Army for discriminatory practices."

I was almost sure that pareagraph was going to end with,

"... a matter of time until a soldier in such a predicament declares himself a pre-op trans woman, wears long hair in a prim army bun, and changes his name to Marilyn."

Seems to me that’s the logical thing to do if anyone is truly interested in determining female soldier combat effectiveness. All female combat units in training, all female combat units in actual combat situations. I mean how else would anyone logically do it?

The Left is in control — for now — at least until the inevitable economic collapse comes. Their reckless spending on everything imaginable and the resulting unsustainable debt load will eventually crush us. That will be the big reset, both economically and socially. We’re in for a lot of pain.

Agreed - I am sick of my own platitudes.

Action Plan with concrete steps - Add to it as you see fit.

1) There is nowhere to go with the Established Government - Every single member of Congress (including the beloved Cruz, Mike Lee, Gowdy, King, Gohmert, Bachman, Coburn) are traitors who have violated their oath of office. They are playing us royally. GIVE THEM NO MONEY.

2) Married women with small children - Make your financial plan to leave your job and go home. Raise your own children. The State schools and daycare are ruining your kids, so homeschool if you can or find a group of like-minded people to join who know what they are doing. This will free up some jobs for the men, who are suffering mightily.

3) Stop watching any of the Major Media on TV. Get yourself educated - no excuse for being ignorant any more.

4) Put your savings into something concrete - invest in a business or something that is real.

5) Do all you can to discourage your child from joining the military.

6) Please ask Jesus for guidance and forgiveness for being so derelict in protecting your freedoms - there simply is nowhere else to go - America is the last hope. In the end, this is all about falling away from God, the hardening of the heart and converting good people into bad ones.

That was to assure that Marys wouldn’t have to go. Today the Marys are doing what they couldn’t have done then: working with islamists, communists and various other ‘ists’ to wreck everything that real Americans have built.

The awful irony is that islamists are ‘believers’ who otherwise claim homosexuality to be a sin worthy of extermination. And homos may well be inviting their brethren to give up their heads.

The original story I saw referred to a soldier who is a Sikh, NOT a Islamist. The Sikhs are from Punjab in northwest India. They wear beards and turbans. The Sikh faith is not related to Islam.

Do you have a link to the original article the author is discussing? If there is evidence that the DoD has granted the same to moslem religious soldier, I will stand corrected.

thanks, G-F

Look back at this country just 25 short years ago. Its barely recognizable. The liberalization of America and its institutions has been nothing short of dramatic. I can’t imagine what we will look like in five more years. Its all been driven by the Left.

Why not simply classify all soldiers on Physical and Mental Merit ONLY and the ones who cannot keep up are assigned to Base Logistics in the states etc...

You know, using logic and whatnot.

I am a woman and I grew up on a farm and probably more used to hard than 99% of the other women out there, however if I couldn’t pass the physical fitness for ANY position in the military I wouldn’t scream and shout about being supposedly slighted. Also there are other need on the battlefield that women have that are different for men, part of the military Logic is “Uniform” is that it is not the actual “uniform” but the concept of uniformity because if it is not easy logistically speaking to have to supply stuff that is non-standard.

Our bodies are different and take different logistics, so that would throw a monkey wrench into things, now it is far easier or not an issue at all to deal with in the states or near a base, but when it comes to front line combat the supply chains are less reliable and by necessity must be minimal standards. What an issue it would be if they had to replace a box of ammo with a box of specialized stuff for the one soldier out of a unit of 100 and because of this they ran out of ammo and were slaughtered....

From my previous readings on the issue of gender equality in the Military, it started with women complaining that they weren’t getting the higher promotions because they were prevented from direct combat duty. These women, and their enablers, made it all about career advancement and not a scintilla about National Defense and what makes our military superior in the world. The Repubs and the Dems are lockstep on this, so it was going to happen. But, it was all a ruse to destroy from within, IMHO.

Good point. Then the truth would come out about abilities and strengths when there are no men around to take up the slack.

I think they are the actors in the TV series “The Bible” portraying the two angels who, disguised as human travelers, stayed with Lot’s family in Sodom just prior to the destruction.

Am I right, Phillyred?

They aren’t contradictions. For those who are in the know - realize the Arabic world - abetted by Islam is and has always been hugely homosexual and into deviant sexual behavior. It is a front that they are against it; there are against the effeminate cross dressing in your face variety. But the dominance - angry donkey emotionally effed up kind they are all about. The liking young boys - all about it.

here’s a link
Abu Nuwas, the first and foremost Islamic gay poet from 8th century A.D.
(many consider the greatest Arabic poet of all time)
http://www.gay-art-history.org/gay-history/gay-literature/gay-mythology-folktales/arab-gay-folktales/abu-nuwas-gay/abu-nuwas-gay-biography.html

The whole M. East is involved with this stuff. A by product of warped views. I grew upover there in UAE as a 12 to 18 American teenager and had to watch my back. The myth is a front kept up for the outside world. They despise the effeminate and flamboyant types - which are historically a new thing. If one looks at history of Arab literature - what little there is - is about man - boy relationships. All of N. Africa and Persian gulf. Read Wilfred Thesiger mentions this behavior as a right of passage in both Arabian Sands and Marsh Arabs.
Behind The Veil Of Vice by John Bradley is a modern look at culture and sexuality in Middle East.
David Pryce Jones The Closed Circle is best book I’ve read to explain much of tribalism and reasons for people’s behavior over there.

Maybe feelings of male inadequacy and proving one’s virility along with lack of opportunity and ability to relate in heterosexual relationships normally all come into play.

Messed up though.
One way the buggering is covered up is by not having adequate vocabulary to speak of such things - intentionally. So its kept on the down low.

Just some thoughts. Most in the West don’t or can’t comprehend that parts of the Middle East are maybe predominately homosexual for males. This behavior probably goes back before Islam and in spite of Islam as a cultural thing and also reinforced through oppressive Islamic mores and gender roles.

It was just a handful of women that complained. I have seen two star female generals with no combat experience so that was a bogus argument.

My base has a female general with no combat experience. She has never left the USA on any assignment.
