some of the best riflemen I ever trained in the USMC were women.
I see this as one more step to declaring coulter insane.
Makes sense to me. Yes women are good with rifles and guns, in this case however one small woman up against a large muscular man is no real match is it?? That's really her point.
It was an extremely stupid idea sending along one woman to escort someone as dangerous as nichols. Does that mean that ALL woman can't do the job? Thats coulters biggest problem and I think its also one of the conservatives biggest problems. They can't look at something on a case by case basis and make the judgement that needs to be done at that time. They need to group up the whole and claim that ALL of it will lead to EVERYTHING being done thats wrong and immoral/unethical. I accuse liberals of doing this as well. just as often and just as stupidly. Its no wonder theres such a divide out there.
You should see the girls try to drag the test dummies from the burn house.
There's a woman who works on the 3rd floor the building who'd likely have whooped dude's ass in a fist-fight.
Im so glad you said that!!
How far could they throw a grenade or carry you if you needed to be removed from danger after being injured? And how often by percentage were they the best? Some women are huge and could probably kick the dudes ass, most are not. Coulter is talking about averages.
I don't think women should be removed from the duties, just expected to perform exactly as the men, I saw in boot camp how much easier they were treated than the men, how much lower the standards of physical ability they were expected to perform.
If they cannot lift a 200 lb dummy and remove it from a burn house (a place where firefighters practice under simulation) should they be a firefighter? Do you want them being the person that finds you in a fire if they do not have the strength to save you?
Sticking your fingers in your ears and shouting, "I can't hear you because you're are insane!" is not a substitute to opening your eyes and seeing actual reality.
Common sense needs to prevail.........I have no problem admitting most men are stronger than me, smarter no stronger yes, and I work out, lift weights and run about 7 to 10 miles per day. Generally speaking men are stronger than women, it's just a fact, no shame in admitting that. Which is why women need to be cunning, smart and safe.
I think that was Coulter's point, that feminists just can't admit to things like that, and our society shouldn't admit to that because somehow it diminishes woman's worth, which is not the case at all.
