Quite honestly, I don’t think that women should fight on the front lines. We have enough men dying there already. We don’t need both genders fighting, since that would cause the other side to use both genders. The only long term effect that can come of that is more dead people.

I think that might even be an even worse argument against than all of punisher’s twaddle.

I was putting it in a simple sentence, and I’m tired. But in all seriousness, if side A and side B had 10 000 men in each army, and side A enlisted 8 000 women, what would side B do, if it lacked men to join the army (Illogical since they wouldn’t just run out of men, I know)?

When will people understand having a same status and doing the same job are different things
A bulldozer is slower and expensive than a car but does that mean it has less of a value for the contractor?
No, it has not, but that does not mean he will compete in nascar with it

Aha, a person like I. I (& several others) make this point here on many other issues. It certainly does appear that a “certain few” are unable to see & separate particular ideas….so much so that they are very willing to deeply pervert concept like this. I have one that constantly likes to pervert MY CONCERNS to be equated as being “childishly fearful”. His implication isn’t of the nature of when ppl say: I am fearful this will come to pass. I dread this will be true. I’m quite scared will will have a bad outcome.

I’ve found that lately, the rabid right “conservatives” greatly luv to use such “loaded” words rather than use words that more correctly describe the true sentiment….hence my “boogeyman theory”: twist the truth—loudly & long enough—until the “low information” ppl take it to their bosom in fear that to do otherwise will spell doom-&-gloom for them.

I think I prefer ‘rabid’ – a word you use rather too often to demonize your ideological opponents – conservatives who can at least get to the point, than that meandering mess you just posted. What exactly is the ‘true sentiment’ of what you just said? It’s too vague and high-handed for me to make sense of it, even more than is usual with your posts.

Good for YOU. Good to know. AND…pot-meet-kettle. I can stoop to YOUR level and insult your manner of critique, also…..eh? YOUR “intellectual swagger” is well appreciated by ME here….lol.

…. than that meandering mess you just posted.

What….ya having trouble understaning what I said? Imagine that? DILLIGAS? I often find YOUR posts to be the same for me….likely for far different reasons….LOL

I also find that by asking in a less insulting manner, it’s a whooooole lot more likely that I’ll get positive feedback….should I really want it rather than merely asking a rhetorical question in order to make the insult.

Jan, I recognize the YOU are extremely knowledgeable—likely due to a likewise strong intellect—and quite well enjoy YOUR bringing it to this forum. I learn much from it.
HOWEVER, while I do enjoy the “scathing criticism” ya level at times (even to ME) for both the merit of the message and the “low quality” of the method (by the poster) of delivery, there is very little to be “learned” from it.

BUT, I am curious here: WHY DO YA DO THAT?
For “fun”?
Cuz ya’re pissed that ppl aren’t as “smart” as ya are? (<< I’m serious there…NOT being sarcastic)?
OR, much as I, are pissed because ya ppl don’t agree w/ ya? YOU have, several times, expressed (very passionate?) spleen at particular positions held by posters?

My questions aren’t rethorical “insults”….
I’ve held this curiosity for awhile now,,,
it just looked like an opportune time to ask.
Please…PLEASE respond.
Curious minds wanna know.

I think you missed the point of my post: Your earlier post made no sense at all – aside from the usual ad hominems against conservatives -, and rather than addressing it and clarifying it you did your usual beardo ranting at anyone who criticizes you.

How are his posts even remotely related to the 1700s?

Anyway, are you done with the ad hominem and ready to actually respond to his points instead of avoiding them?

NO, YOUR insult is misplaced. Tenco’s quip (and I luv the “almost”… tenco’s witty mirth is ledgendary) is about my use of common, “PROPER” English…..NOT about my being from the 1700’s,,,ergo, his gggfather. I AM old…just not that old…lol

AND, dood…man-up and accept a challenge. Learn to cope w/ variety, diversity, “nouveau-speak”…things NOT happening in the 1700’s. Well, the colonists did have to learn Native Americans’ language and that of the other countries in the New World….imagine THAT.

Um…not necessarily. Just because one side does something does not mean another side will replicate it.

If there are more women in that military unit, more women will die, not more people. It might actually decrease the number of men dying. It’s a matter of math. Make sense?

This thread has the most circular argument I’ve ever seen…

Women are weaker than men. → In general, yes; nevertheless there are some women that are stronger than men and therefore they should be allowed to be on the frontlines. → Women are weaker than men. → Um, yes, you have said that already. Some women are stronger than some men and should be on the frontlines, as said. → Women are weaker than men. → You’ve already said that. → Women are weaker than men. → … → Women are weaker than men.

Seriously? I see no other argument for women not being on the frontlines apart from women, in general, being weaker. Can no one on that side of the argument say anything else?

Women are generally weaker than men, hence they should not be allowed to fight on front lines.
Loop close.

Good work doing exactly what I predicted you would. Now, on to the second step (something seemingly complicated for the people on your side): in general, women are weaker, yes; that, however, is outside the question, since many women are stronger than your average man. Why should a person who is weaker (an average man) have to fight in place of a stronger person (a strong woman)?

And hopefully you do not keep following the same pattern I just outlined as you have done now. Yes, we understand that your only (flawed) argument is “women are weaker than men”, can we progress from that now? Hopefully you won’t be posting for the next 20 pages the same thing again: “women are weaker than men”. Yes, you have said that already. What you have failed to do however, is listen to any replies concerning such fallacious argument.

Can you tell me how much women are stronger than men?

On average, they are not. However, I’m not exactly sure what point you’re trying to make. Some women are still stronger than your average man, and why a weak human being should take the place of a strong human being in warfare seems frivolous to me. The question still stands:

Why should a person who is weaker (an average man) have to fight in place of a stronger person (a strong woman)?

One more reason for women to not to be in military.
