Draft Our Daughters? Congress Says No to Female Draft...
Congress recently met to go over plans regarding national defense, including a possible female draft. For equality and all. Upon further reflection they tossed the idea out the window. And rightly so, might I add (see New Legislation Would Require Women Register for Draft). It sucks. Sorry, feminists...
Congress has abandoned plans to require women to register for the draft in an annual defense policy bill.
Instead, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would require a review of the draft registration for men.
Conservatives pushed House and Senate negotiators to drop the provision, arguing that requiring women to register was putting "culture wars" above national security.
The last bit is the money quote. The female draft is putting culture wars above national security.
To be abundantly clear, at least from my perspective, women shouldn't be drafted, ever, into combat roles. Not because women are more concerned over their cuticles than a quick disassembly of an AR-15. Women just lack the physical strength of men. Lemme type that again but with different words. Don't get triggered, ladies. Most men are stronger than most women. Are there some broads with the powerful thighs of clydesdales? Maybe a few here and there. They're the exception, not the rule. Even still, the strongest women on earth do not measure up to moderately strong men. Reality. It's a thing. Get on the train and order a latte.
No, just because women lack the physical prowess of men doesn't mean ladies are inferior human beings. We've been over this. But when it comes to national defense, national security, ensuring the safety of our nation, and how to best wage wars, putting ladies on the front lines makes as much sense as hiring a pomeranian to guard your estate. Sure, sure, it can be yippy and annoying with plenty of micromanaging suggestions, but it's a strategic error.
I can write that, I'm a woman. Calm down, ladies. You know it's true.
Also, did you notice who was fighting against said provision? Not feminists (read Dear Feminists: Stop Lying. You Really Don't Care About Women...). Uh huh.
Do women have their place in the military? Sure. Is it on the front lines? LOL, no. So let's celebrate this moderate victory. Maybe we should all buy new shoes.
Speaking of feminists...
