so are 18 year old women going to be required to sign up for selective services(the draft)? if women CAN fight in combat, how long til we ask the question SHOULD they fight in combat? maybe we should have all women batallions, and treat them different? if north korea nukes us and I, as a 29 year old, get drafted, can i conscientiously object to fighting along side women? Right or wrong, I have an inherent duty to protect women--- they are equals, but entirely different from men----physically speaking they are weaker. Emotionally speaking they may not be able to deal with blowing alot of peoples heads off.
maybe we should just have a don't ask don't tell policy regarding gender
seriously though, it'ss sad that we are trying so hard to erase the concept of gender and masculinity and femininity
