    I would like to see affirmative action in the military occur. 50% of all active duty members should be female, including those on the front lines.

    The purpose of affirmative action is to address evidenced discrimination and the value of diversity, not to fill arbitrary quotas.

    And yes I served my time as well. Remember NP, there are only 2 types of ships out at sea; submarines.....and targets.

    Your problem is fathers, son and brothers already do this......The question ia do you want to add mothers sisters and daughters to the equation? I don't.

    What about the discrimination in society for expecting men to be the disposable sex?

    I mean real discrimination, which prevents qualified people from pursuing their goals, in today's US... not the kind that people imagine.

    You don't think these "disposable" men have goals in life other than dieing?

    I volunteered of my own free will, during war, with no intention of dying. Since then I've pursued higher education in the field of my choice.

    The purpose is fine but the method, fighting discrimination with more discrimination, needs a little work.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Did you not also feel it was your duty to serve your country? If so, where did you get this sense of duty. No one volunteers to put their life at risk for no reason.

    So you'd rather positions be filled by quota rather than qualifications. That's really stupid, but you're entitled. I guess as long as the "right people" get the job, it doesn't matter how many die.
