    I'd love to teach y'all to knit. I find it very soothing.

    Secondly, I don't think you've ever heard a group of women sitting around trash talking their menfolk. Women are far filthier than men, hands down.
    Trash-talking your menfolk does not translate into the ability to withstand extended combat operations.

    The idea of women as delicate creatures that need to be protected is largely a Victorian upper class construct.
    They're not delicate, but they're certainly more delicate than men.

    You mean the idea that women are delicate little flowers who are unsuited to violence? Heh.

    No, the idea that woman are emotionally and physically suited to withstand the rigors of extended combat operations as part of an infantry platoon.

    Then I'll bet you did.

    Why don't you provide the quote that I referred to and lets take a look.

    Not my quote, the entire one of yours to which it refers.

    I suggest you do this in a separate thread in General Political so as not to muddy up this one. Meet ya there.

    This is based upon nothing. I know the chest beating makes y'all feel all manly and all, but there is nothing in written history that suggests women are incapable of warfare. Your culturally acquired biases do not equal historical proof.

    Trash-talking your menfolk does not translate into the ability to withstand extended combat operations.

    ORLY?

    I'd say it largely depends on the women involved, and the men.

    I can't believe you threaten to pull rank in a thread you are heavily invested in. Jeesh.
