The 7 Best Right-Wing Freakouts Over Women Going Into Combat

***SNIP

Heather Mac Donald of the National Review

The Pentagon must think we are done fighting “real wars.” Why else would they let women play army?

***SNIP

Kathryn Jean Lopez of the National Review

Lopez thought her co-workers were pranking her. No, really:

I thought it was a joke. Dan actually e-mailed it to me and I thought: Very funny.

***SNIP


Bryan Fischer of Renew America

It’s a really, really bad idea that also defies God’s will:


***SNIP

Ryan Smith of the Wall Street Journal, a former Marine Infantryman

Peeing in front of women will humiliate men. Why does Leon Panetta want to humiliate men?

1. Oh the freakouts aren't ust limited to RW sites, there have a couple of screeds around here

 

That rank right up there.

Just absolutely amazing how some folks don't want to accept women in combat, don't want to accept the equality of women. A sad statement on the latent chauvinism still present within the Democratic party.

4. I think the Armed Services should have some new rules.

" If a Woman, in battle, encounters a Male soldier making derogatory comments about the Female being in battle, the Female shall shoot the Male in the foot"

5. i am seeing something interesting. all of a sudden i am hearing how humiliated a man will be

if a woman dare see certain private moments, that one cannot avoid in a combat situation. YET..... i am continually told that when it is women that are performing certain private acts for mens entertainment, there is not a single damn degrading or demeaning thing about the experience.

i am really fuckin surprised how all of a sudden, men are so prudish. when is comes to their experiences.

9. Oh, really good point!

Woman lowering her gentals into man's face during lap dance = not at all degrading or demeaning to anybody, per DUers.

Man peeing in front of woman on battlefield = man rolled in fetus ball from humiliation; loss of wars and downfall of America guaranteed.
