As a male and a lefty I found myself surprised to come to the defense of the righties.
Throwing stones at the right wing only distracts from the issue which has to do more with morals than ideology. The issue is, why do women need to crawl into the trenches in order to be valued in the military? Why are the services women now provide; short of being "killing machines" less valuable in terms of salary and rank? Those are the policies that all those males at the top should be concerned about rather than enticing women to the "killing fields."
What happen to our moral conviction regarding putting "women and children first"? Keeping them out of harms way? Animals even do that based on nothing more than instinct. It's a "no brainer."
Unlike the gays, I hope women are smart enough to figure out they are being played by the boys who are short on "manpower" and trying to find other ways to fill the trenches to fight these senseless, money making wars that profit mostly males. These boys, by the way, are the one's that stay as far away from the trenches as they can.
