No, women should NOT be in combat. Are you fucking kidding me?

28 Nov

So a couple of lady soldiers are suing the US Military because blah blah blah… combat soldiers.  I don’t really give a fuck what their argument is, the answer should be simple:

http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/27/us/women-sue-military/index.html?hpt=hp_bn1

It’s not a matter of whether women CAN be soldiers.  Although on average, most of them can’t.  Women have screeched their sassy little lungs out for access to elite training and not a one of them can hack it.  Washed out.  LADY FAIL!  It’s the goddamn MARINES, ladies.  Of course you’re not gonna make it.  Most men can’t make it. What hope is there for women?

But even if they COULD, the answer should still be one great big resounding NO FUCKING WAY!

http://jezebel.com/5963909/new-lawsuit-challenges-limitations-of-military-women-in-combat

There is value in having cultural space that is just for men and ONLY men.  There is one huge cultural space reserved as the sole province of women and there is nothing nature or culture can do to change that:  the child bed.

Women, and only women, face down fear and pain and a test of the limits of their physical capacity and without medical interventions, a good many of them would face certain death. Bringing a baby into this world is something that MOST women will go through, and it is one of the most exhausting, agonizing and ultimately transcendent experiences any woman can have.  And it is reserved solely and specifically for women.

And don’t give me any shit about the pregnant “man”.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/31/pregnant-man-thomas-beati_n_1067326.html

Thomas Beattie is NOT A MAN.  He is a woman who took artificial hormones to mimic external male characteristics, and in order to use the uterus and ovaries he was born with, he had to STOP TAKING THOSE HORMONES, in effect becoming 100% woman again.

Combat is the male version of childbirth.  Men are either drafted or freely choose to face down fear, pain, a test of their physical limits and a very real possibility of death.  Unpleasant, agonizing, torturous death. The battlefield is a sacred space that belongs to men, and women have no business being there at all.  Women should be in the military in support capacities, certainly.  Nurses, supply clerks, truck drivers, mechanics, communications specialists, anything and everything EXCEPT COMBAT.

It doesn’t matter if women can be effective soldiers and killers.  Duh.  Of course they can.  They prefer to kill children, but whatevs.  This isn’t about women.  It’s about men and whether we are going to reserve one cultural space for them exclusively. One place where men and only men are permitted to rule. Where they risk their lives, and often lose them.  And in turn, we mourn their loss and celebrate their life and give thanks for their sacrifice.

http://judgybitch.com/2012/10/30/if-you-dont-buy-a-poppy-for-remembrance-day-you-are-an-asshole/

There are a number of de facto spaces that are NOT reserved solely for men, but seem to be populated by them anyways:  on all the dirty, dangerous, isolated and physically demanding jobsites around the world.

Coal mines

Oil rigs

Tar pits

Power lines

Long distance trucks

Iron and steel works

Lumber mills

Roofers

Fishing trawlers

Men do these jobs.  Why?  Because they’re hard, that’s why!  If women are so determined to get in a dick measuring contest with the toughest of men, let them strap on a safety line and haul their asses up the nearest high voltage transmission tower or out onto an oil rig in the middle of the North Atlantic.  There are plenty of places on this planet that are dark and dirty and isolated, where the work will be brutal and physically demanding and test every ounce of strength you have.  Wanna go head to head with the boys?  Fine.  Get thee to an ice trawler.


But stay the fuck out of combat.  You are not wanted.  This is not your voyage.

Lots of love,

JB

    I disagree. Let women serve in combat, but ONLY if they meet the same standards for combat soldier that men do.

    As that’s less than 1% of women, it won’t present as a problem.

    According to a poll, 77% of women favored the change to allow women to serve in front-line combat – however, only 48% of women supported being included in the Draft.
    Kinda sounds like feminism’s typical sense of entitlement without responsibility, no?

    PS. Ironically, 59% of men supported to include women in the Draft. Who said that it’s men who are withholding opportunities from women?

    I approve of your opinion. Even if the woman can qualify for all the physical and mental requirements, the men will always treat them different. Something about men’s natural instinct to look out for and protect women, which leaves them distracted and not goal oriented.

    I approve of everything but the Thomas Beattie thing. Using what you have, even if it terrifies you, for biological kids is a hard decision. But it is true he is not a full on biologically body man so perhaps “Pregnant Transman” is the better wording. But invalidating his masculinity because he was willing to carry their children because his wife was infertile makes you an asshole. He is just a romantic fool.

    I nitpick because I am transgender and I was one of the people defending him. I don’t defend his going public about it. Also… I won’t get offended if we continue discussion about it. I love debate and the internet allows me a bit to think on things before I respond.

    I have no idea what his motivations might have been. All I am pointing out is that in order to bear his children, he needed to STOP taking the hormones that allow him to mimic male secondary sex characteristics, in effect, making him HORMONALLY a woman.

    I can’t speak for what he FELT like in his own mind, nor do I think it matters, vis-a-vis my argument that there is no such thing as a pregnant male body.

    Nope. He may be 100% male in his mind, but in order to bear children, he had to become 100% female in body.

    Hence my argument that keep the male pronouns but call him a transman. So it still acknowledges the fact that trans people ARE NOT 100% their sex. Most arguments for trans individuals in fact acknowledge nature and nurture which is why feminists hate us.

    Gender queer can sort of be from a feminist perspective but transgender people literally do self harm themselves for being male or female which implies mind wise they have a biological component that makes them the opposite in sex roles to how they physically appeared and what parts they got.

    Transman works perfectly well for your point that he had a female body when he bore his children but still allows the dignity of being acknowledged as male.

    I see what you’re saying and I agree with some of it. I will change the pronouns to “he”, to reflect the dignity I absolutely believe he is owed no matter what his sex/gender. But I won’t use “transman”.

    That just sounds weird.

    100% disagree. If she can hack it, go ahead. And if you’re referring to the Marine Corps OIC, It was only TWO women that failed. The only TWO that the Corps put through. I believe more are scheduled to go in this year. So far they have tested TWO women. Oh goodness gracious, Lord Almighty, lets hinge the entire female potential on TWO women.

    Matter of fact, the entire US Military should change their standards. Equal PT for all regardless of the MOS the individual desires. Men, if they want to be supply clerks, mechanics, HR specialist, drivers, they still have to pass the MALE PT standards which is much high than the female.

    It should be one standard, the current MALE PT STANDARD. If you can’t hack it, you can’t be part of the BEST goddamn military in the world-USA ALL THE WAY.

    Actually, it’s more like 1% of the men who can meet the standards of elite soldiers, and 0% of the women who can match it.

    I agree with almost everything our hosts write, except for this. Let them go and die, fuck’em. And when they return, let them be just as homeless as the male veterans become.

    However, something tells me they wont.

    Goddamn feminist…

    Can you imagine what will happen when the first female combat soldier gets captured after killing a few of the soldiers on the capturing side? Can you guess how hungry those capturers are going to be for some sex after having spent 4 month in the mountain, full of testosterone and no woman in sight?

    I would be very surprised if her capturers cared about her consent, given that she didn’t care for the consent of the people she killed in combat.

    What’s going on is that the women who want to go for the combat soldier roles want to have a share of the glory that the male sacrifices has accumulated.

    They don’t really want to do hard and dangerous labor, and JB exposes that in the list of items women won’t go for.
