We have women in the military, but
they don't put us in the front lines.
They don't know if we can fight, if we
can kill. I think we can. All the general
has to do is walk over to the women
and say, "You see the enemy over there? They say you look fat in those
uniforms.", amirite?

And if it's not exactly up to par, everyone bitches about it in the comments. Or if a user gets multiple POTDs, the same shit jokes are recycled. If you don't like the POTD, move on. There's a new one every fucking day. If you don't like that users get multiple POTDs, stop making shitty posts and maybe you'll get one.

Women should also be required to draft if drafting occurs, also.

@also what?

I don't think it happens anywhere but the US if you don't live here. But basically, a draft occurs sometimes when a war is being fought. It forces a certain amount of men between the ages of 18 and 40 (I'm not sure on the range exactly) who are able-bodied to join in the war. When all men turn 18 they have to do some paperwork for the government so that if there is ever a draft the government will be able to include them in the random selection. Women don't take part in the draft. Yep, the world obviously needs more feminists. (That was sarcasm, if you didn't know.)

Actually feminists are the ones fighting for the equal rights amendment to the constitution "Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."
Because this is not in the U.S constitution the military can exclude women from positions, not based on ability, but just because they were born female. That is also why the Supreme Court ruled that only drafting men (if a draft was needed) is constitutional as the positions needed to be filled are excluded from women anyway. This situation isn't really fair on men or women and should be changed.

There are few feminists who are truly just fighting for equal rights. Most of them, from my experience, are really just man haters. Here's a good example: (Especially at the end of the video for femi-nazis)

@twisted_memories Then they're not feminist, they're sexist.

Definitions can change. They call themselves feminists, and the majority of people who do so are them.

@Emperorerror Definitions can change. They call themselves feminists, and the majority of people who do so are them.

But by definition someone believing their sex is the greater sex is sexist. There are feminists who want equality, that's feminism. The definitions haven't changed, the "femanazis" simply have a louder voice because they're nuts.

@twisted_memories But by definition someone believing their sex is the greater sex is sexist. There are feminists who want equality...

Alright, let's look at it this way, if you don't like my other arguments. Feminism isn't called equalism, or something of that nature. If you look at the word, you can see the Femin, which clearly is about the female sex. Sure, in the past society was sexist towards women, but to be a feminist today simply implies female dominance.

@Emperorerror Alright, let's look at it this way, if you don't like my other arguments. Feminism isn't called equalism, or...

I don't agree. I call myself a feminist because I believe we are equal and I'll fight for that. Of course it is about the female sex, that's because we have yet to be treated as total equals, and women had to literally fight for it not too long ago (and still do in many parts of the world). There are male equal rights activists as well. I do not believe feminism is about female dominance, that's stupid as no sex is greater. Femanazis and sexist women exist and are louder than your average feminist (which is something that should change, as who wants a crazy to represent them by default?). I think the majority of feminists are women who simply want equality. We need to change which voice is being heard the loudest.

@twisted_memories I don't agree. I call myself a feminist because I believe we are equal and I'll fight for that. Of course it is...

Females are equals now. You can't possibly disagree on that. In fact, society is sexist towards males, not only most feminists. There are women against feminism as well. Some examples of women having more rights than men:

-Women are 70.7% of nonreciprocal domestic violence perpetrators; but, no shelters exist for battered men.
(American Psychiatric Association)

-Women are 20% of suicides, while men represent 80%; but, special counseling services are focused on female depression.
(U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Center for Health Statistics)

-The federal government supports small businesses that are owned by women; but, it does not support small businesses that are owned by men.
(Department of Defense Office of Small Business Programs)

-Men are more likely to die from every major cause of death, and yet no Office on Mens Health exists. Only a Office on Womens Health does.
(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Health Statistics)

I could go on.

@Emperorerror Females are equals now. You can't possibly disagree on that. In fact, society is sexist towards males, not only...

I'm not going to argue against that, I know sexism exists against men. There are ways in which women and men are not equal which are against men. Also, there are ways in which they aren't equal which are against women. It's all stupid. We should be equal. There should be shelters for people who need it, regardless of their gender. I'm not disagreeing with what you're saying, I'm saying it needs to change.

Also, feminism isn't just about women in my country. Women are NOT equal in many parts of the world, and that is a part of feminism.

But maybe "equalist" would be a better term for me. I get as angry and upset about women abusing men as I do about men abusing women. I have a friend who was abused for so long by his girlfriend, but nobody seemed to care. That's not ok.

That is possible, but mainly what I'm thinking is just since the word is based around female, feminine, etc. Of course, it was almost completely women who needed to be brought up before, but now being a "feminist" means you're working for the rights of women, and ignoring the injustices towards men.

I don't necessarily agree with that, though. You can be a feminist and an equalist and an animal rights activist or whatever you want. It doesn't mean to bring women above men nor that men are less important. It just means that women are not equal and we should be. I'd call myself a feminist but that doesn't mean I don't recognize that there is sexism to wards men that I believe should change.

If women were allowed to fight on the front lines then they should get no more special considerations than anyone else - unless you are the sole parent or guardian or are exempt due to medical, you fight. We can't argue for the opportunity to fight and not accept the harsh realities that accompany it.

And as for the size argument given forth by others, I know many girls who can more then carry that weight, it's all about working out and developing your strength.

I don't think anyone will deny that men have a natural advantage to gain and retain muscle because men have higher testosterone levels. This is not to say that women cannot gain muscle or that they cannot be more muscular than men, but it takes more work than it does men. That being said, it is more likely that a man will be up to military work than a women, if selected randomly. For the work in the military, it makes sense to draft men, who are likely to be stronger. I am not against women in the military, but just mandatory military service for women(like including them in the draft). As for being on the front lines, I would expect those who are strongestman or womento be sent. Its not about sexism or the desire to fight, it is about ability.

Well, the reasonable thing to do in that situation would be to remove some protective gear as to balance the weight properly.

As to hygiene, Queen Elizabeth was considered to be absurdly hygienic for her time because she insisted on bathing every month. Most women in her time bathed a few times a year and only in warm weather. I have no doubt that women can handle not bathing for a couple weeks.

@Frozen Fun fact for you: Roughly 20% of women complete a year long tour on a ship in the US Navy due to rape, illness, or...

Everything you've been saying is more of an argument to remove the men, not the women. If your male soldiers can't concentrate on their job because a woman is there, then he's a fucking terrible soldier. I can carry a man on my shoulders for an extended distance because I've been trained to. Anyone can be trained and can gain physical strength.

Women can not have a period for however long they want (via birth control and shots). Also, as someone said, when a women physically exerts herself for an extended period of time, her period stops (so it wouldn't be a problem anyway). Men rape men (yes, even straight men rape men), so your "theory" about rape being an issue is stupid (not to mention the obvious fact that the rapist should be removed, not the victim, as has been stated).

In the RCMP the PARE (the physical fitness test) is the same for men and women, meaning everyone who gets into the RCMP is equally qualified. If you're in the army, you are qualified, or else you wouldn't be there, you wouldn't be at war.

You're clearly an idiot if you honestly think a soldier would rape a woman simply because she is there.

Example: the woman in this picture is very unlikely to be raped:
http://www.militarywoman.org/fo...p;d=1278097046ely, horny men just masturbate, only psychopaths rape people. There is no excuse for rape. We should kick out the rapists, not the women. After all, a rape is always 100% the rapist's fault, we should punish them, not the victims. Also, if you're so afraid of soldiers getting raped, you should not let gay people from join the military either but that's a whole different issue.

Also, rape can happen if women aren't there. Sorry to burst your bubble of innocence.

I wasn't considering gay rape, because as you said that is another issue. We could go into that too, but I'm not all for gays being in the military. Once again, conflict of interest.

Furthermore, I will fully support you should you find somebody that can detect rape 100% accurately before it happens. Good luck.

Other fun fact: (Aside from the "giant machine gun" most likely being too heavy - the standard issue M240 is approx. 28 lbs) I highly doubt that the woman would have it near her at all times, particularly when she needs it. Secondly, would she use it on a fellow troop? Thirdly, most likely, for you feminists the man would be stronger than her, and could disarm her.

In the end, with so many conflicts of interest that ensue with having women on board ships with men, it isn't in everybody's best interest. You're just trying to ignore the fact that men and women are not the same - psychologically, physically, and physiologically. We aren't the same, but we are equal.

Your argument that women should not be in the military because they will be raped is ridiculous. We should get rid of the rapists, not women. If a man doesn't have the discipline and moral fiber to refrain from raping someone that man is not only unfit for the military, but unfit for society. Rapists belong in jail, not the military. Fortunately, only a teeny tiny percentage of people are actually rapists. Men don't just magically turn into psychopathic brutal rapists when they don't get laid for a few months.

If someone is about to rape you. It is totally within your rights to defend yourself by any means necessary. Besides, when you are in a machine gun shooting match, it doesn't matter who is stronger. Reflexes and speed are what really count.

Are you seriously worried that some women won't be able to lift 28 pounds? Seriously? 28lbs is the average weight of a two year old child. It's also about the same weight as 3 gallons of ice cream.

This woman: http://www.beccaswanson.com/about/

And yet if we look back in history, we see that virtually no other society had this issue of women being raped on a ship. Oh, right, because there were none. It's one thing to be fighting for women's rights, like voting, but this just shouldn't be an issue. War is for men, it always has been. It's no place to have a period, get pregnant, or, for that matter, be a distraction to other soldiers on the battlefield. It is no place for chivalry that could endanger a platoon. It is no place to be a gentleman.

Yes, it is a women's rights issue. If she wants to, and is physically capable of doing the work, then she should be able to. Obviously, she shouldn't while pregnant, but if a man is really that distracted, then that is his own fault for not being able to pay attention to what he should be doing.

When a woman is being extremely active (as one would be during training or deployment in the military), she usually would stop getting her period. That wouldn't be an issue.

Actually, women have been in loads of wars. They've been warriors, knights, nurses, spies, soldiers, heroes, hunters, snipers, conquerors, and even pirates. Wars are the most bloody events in history, a woman's period isn't going to hurt anybody.

Nah joke or not, women aren't capable of fighting in a war effectively

Ah, so you have one fictional book and one feminist book who's title is based on rumor to support your claim? What irrefutable evidence.

A book written to show that women are superior to men on the battlefield is most definitely feminist, but that's not the main point. The title of the novel is based on rumored advice, so it isn't strong evidence.

Again, you missed the point. I wasn't saying that because it is fiction, it is false. I was saying that because it is fiction, it isn't strong evidence.

Surely a longstanding tradition would have several credible sources backing it up, amirite?

I've heard of it somewhere before. I do not know if it's true. I'm just saying.
Apparently it is because woman will try to protect their children and are very likely to kill in such a situation (the enemy, not their children XD).
Again, I do not know if it is true. It's just something I heard/came across.

I'm not siding with anyone on this, but that's bs.

That's a load of bullshit. Its probably because they want to cut off their sandwich supply
