    ...well you notice there were no women fighting in those wars.....maybe a few in the hospitals or in an office somewhere, but non with a weapon in their hand bleeding and dying on the field.

    Even-though there are more women than men, it seems only men were willing to put their life on the line.

Far fewer legislative actions are even necessary when people can communicate among themselves and come to a compromise on their own. Generally, the government should only be turned to after we fail.

    Re: Women voting, bad idea?

    What a pig headed question, are women a lesser human then a man? Are they on par with the animals or should they be put below that standard.... One could make the argument there are men that are complete idiots and aren't informed enough to belong voting in an election. The point is though we all need to vote, choosing who gets to vote would make an election result bias and would lose any merit as a real choice for the better of the country. I honestly didn't think there were people today who still think like this. I have never come across a person with this belief and i hope that i never do.

    That being said obviously i am for women voting...

    Let us point out a few facts, here - for one. Women weren't ALLOWED in the military during - well - all that ****. Even now we're not allowed on 'front lines' however - the 'front line' status is quite blurred these days. But oddly - women managed to DIE in wars, anyway! Wow - amazing how that happened. Some actually deployed and were stationed overseas as support of various types - died. Some were working here in factories in the stead of man-power - died. And when it came to wars on our own soil - died died. Some were awarded with honors, even. Death and injury - even when not a fighting member of the service.

    But what was mentioned was:
    "Depressions, recessions, WWI, Communism... And slavery too."

    Well - women and men both suffered during the depression. However, when it came to the New Deal women weren't given job-placement assistance by the government. But many women managed employment and support of their families anyways - hoopskirt factories and everything else. Unequal wages abound. (this applies to recessions - women take a hit, too)

    Slavery - females were slaves and females also pushed the fight against slavery.

    Communism - of course some women have been communists and many were harshly affected by communist policies because said policies tend to treat women quite ****ty.

    And so on . . . everything affects people - and women are people, too. Even when policies don't *permit* us to engage in said activity we still manage to find ourselves in it.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Yeah, and most of those deaths were from diseases, accidents, and natural causes, which women die of in peacetime, too. Hardly any were from hostile fire. The Iraq war is the only exception, but even there most women died from causes other than combat.

    Tell you what, when women are forced to register for the Selective Service, I will support their right to vote.

    Oh - so because of Congressional Inaction you don't think I have the right to vote? LOL - Don't be absurd.

    I actually opposed forcing anyone to sign up for selective service ANYWAY - I think it's an archaic tradition that was once necessary but no longer is. If a situation that dire comes up that we need to 'draft' individuals then encouraging others to join the force should be pursued via alternative measures.

    Drafting is a horrid idea overall - it creates reluctant, unwilling and unstable forces. It provides cannon fodder and nothing more - if you decimate your entire massive force to the point of needing to drag unfit or unwilling participants onto the field you've proven yourself incapable of actually leading a military properly.

    So - really - you don't support women's right to vote . . . and you'll just find any excuse possible to defend your view. I've seen it before - and one by one as those 'reasons' are scrubbed out of existence said individuals who oppose it just continue to be exposed for what they really are. I'm heading to the booth regardless of your minor issue - as do most women seeing as how we outvote men anyway.

    Why - pray tell - don't more men give a flying poo about THEIR right to vote? If those numbers keep dwindling pretty soon it'll be associated with women-only just like seamstresses, nurses and secretaries.

    Wow that's amazing. Then how come women still need politicians to do things especially for them?
