This is born from women complaining that men have an easier time getting promotions because men can attend these elite schools, while women can not.
Forget about the fact that women simply can not perform on the same physical level as men, and that allowing women into these elite combat rolls will get people killed. No. We need to make sure folks have promotion points.
This is what gays are doing with marriage. Forget about fixing the institution, and forget that the creation of civil unions is about getting heteros into commitmentless unions and brake up more often. No. This institution is being reduced to a handful of minor tax brakes only the poor ever see and perhaps a reduced insurance premium.
