    No, I was too busy pulling my weight and being one of the guys. I don't like different standards, they give rise to a lack of respect between peers. In fact, I'm perfectly okay with working a lot harder than most of the guys just to be treated like one of them.

    I'd say that the majority of women who want to go into combat are far more like me than they are a playboy bunny.

    Though, they might still have great legs (running is awesome for that).

    That's an important difference right there.
    Except that women have been going on enlistments, serving side by side with men, since WWII. Somehow, they seem to have managed.

    I think it's interesting how some of the men NEED us to stay on the pedestals...and so do some of the women.

    I don't get why women would be invested in proving that women are less competent than men...unless they want men to continue under the delusion that we're soft, sweet, delicate and need them to pay for us.

    Maybe the problem isn't "the bitch women."

    Yeah, I am hoping to eventually land in sports rehab, rather than a hospital. I've done plenty of clinical observations, so I have an idea of where I want to go with it.

    Wonder if they need a physical therapist at the Playboy Mansion? Those girls are always posing in uncomfortable poses for long periods of time. I am sure they could use some professional help, to keep their bodies in balance and prevent injuries. I am sure my wife would understand.........

    There was a thread awhile back where I and another talked some about how the language tended to be more hostile towards women, and no one could understand what we meant. I think what you just isolated is a good example of what we were talking about back then.

    No. Terrible idea. A combat zone is no place for a woman. Sorry, that's not sexism, that's reality.

    Truthfully, I'm not sensitive. I've been called a bitch too many times to count, and I don't get heated about it. It typically has happened when I have gone to the mattress with someone who started shi'ite with me, and I won. Thus, I'm a bitch. But, some things are kinda unmistakable. Like, um, Scarecrow's issues with women.

    FWIW, some women ARE bitches, IMO.

    Others of us just aren't scared to compete fairly on an equal playing field.

    Its difficult question because despite the fact i think there are a minority women pefectly capable of doing so its difficult to not see the majority of male troops acting differently to them.When it comes to safety we cant jeopodise peoples lives for the sake of political correctness.
    The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. The second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. The first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.
