That’s a stupid, kiss-ass answer. While you’re looking for kudos from women for simplifying them (which is anything but the truth), you managed to stereotype other men. Good job.
Kiss ass answer? No, I’m a realist. I’m also happily married. I don’t need kudos from women.
And, yes, I am stereotyping men just like I stereotyped women. Some women don’t want monogamy and want to sleep around and be wanderers for the rest of their lives. And some men strive for a relationship and a family and want to marry their high school sweet hearts.
But the reality still remains that the stereotypes are true because in the vast majority of cases, they apply and they apply well.
I love that this has become an ever more standardized point of view, in what feels like a virtually overnight shift. Women in the military have been fighting for this kind of recognition long and hard on many levels for a long time: in the media, in the court system, in their private lives. It has felt like a bit of a whirlwind, though, seeing the discussions I’ve had with other like-minded supporters of combat equality become more and more widely accepted and the cadre of those who argue that women are too weak and distracting to be in combat become pushed further towards the realm of people of the likes of Tucker Carlson. (Tucker Carlson, by the way, likes to give out free advice to feminists on Twitter. Thanks for your input, Tuck.)
SS: I find it sort of ironic and even hilarious that you spend forever and a day talking about all the negative aspects of war and practically begging for all war to come to an end and then all of a sudden, you are celebrating the fact that more people are now “allowed” to serve and possibly die in wars.
Congratulations, women, you’re now allowed to donate your lives to secure our broken system of perpetual debt and war.
“I need feminism so I can go die for my bank’s country.”
Perhaps, the more logical and sane goal we should have is to prevent all humans, men and women, from serving in combat. That would be the only “progressive” outcome from this entire situation.
