From Why I Am Not A Feminist

On July 24th, at a House Armed Services Committee Personnel Subcomittee hearing, Representative Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) asked Marine Lt. Gen Robert Milstead if being assigned to combat positions would be voluntary for women. General Milstead responded by saying that the 48 female officers and staff NCOs that are now in 19 formerly all-male units were placed there “through the normal assignment process-that was involuntary. That’s why we call them orders.” General Milstead went on to explain, “You go there, and that’s the way it’s going to have to be. It’s going to have to be the same because it can’t be voluntary for the males; it needs to be the same for all. And that’s the way we’ll do it; where you have a level playing field and everyone will feel like they’re being treated equal.”

    Irony there, when I was in the Navy, a ship was a ship and we went on them, this was of course before I had kids. As a mother I would never want to be in a job that takes me from my home and family.
