17. The definition of sexism is "discriminating against people on the basis of their gender"

I do not see, anywhere in the definition, a part about WHO is doing the discriminating, nor do I think it is relevant to the issue.

The fact is that, the view of men as killers on one hand and women as sex-givers on the other, are mirror images of each other and completely entertained.

Therefore, it is unreasonable to expect that women deserve compensation for forced sex in war while men deserve nothing for being forced to kill and die in war.

You imply that all men are responsible for the way things are because men make the decisions. But women have traditionally been the ones who raise children --should I attribute the sexist attitudes (such as that men need to "bring home the bacon" and "do the fighting" as resulting mainly from how women raise their children? Do women deserve more blame for indoctrinating children with these stereotypical views?
