A Shame On The President’s Manhood

| January 6, 2014

A year ago President Obama praised lifting restrictions from women in combat: “Today, by moving to open more military positions — including ground combat units — to women, our armed forces have taken another historic step toward harnessing the talents and skills of all our citizens.” His argument was that “many [women] have made the ultimate sacrifice, […]

Manhood: Real life Private Ryan’s amazing war diaries revealed for the first time

| December 20, 2013

THEY are the war-time diaries which helped save a real-life Private Ryan. Michael Ryan, Northumberland Fusilier 221302, kept a memoir which covered every day of the Second World War – and kept him focused on surviving. It recounts in vivid detail the dangers on the front line, being wounded, his capture, horrifying imprisonment at Auschwitz […]

Commander: ‘Cowards’ Pushing Women Into Combat

| December 7, 2013

Earlier this year, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey announced they were lifting the ban on women serving in ground combat operations, a move one Army expert and author says is the result of an aggressive feminist agenda and military brass unwilling to stand up to politicians and […]

The Problems of Women in Combat – From a Female Combat Vet

| November 22, 2013

Ladies Against Feminism doesn’t hold to all of the author’s conclusions e.g. Woman have a place in the military, that pragmatism  is an acceptable alternative to honoring jurisdiction, or that grace isn’t sufficient for men and the temptation to sexual sin, but the author has made many sound observations we’ve shared here before, from a […]

U.S. Military Forces Women Into Combat Against Their Will

| November 3, 2013

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 […]

Marine Corp to Nurture Women

| July 28, 2013

It still won’t work but at least they are starting to realize the nature of the beast they created is not at all what they thought it would be. Pentagon considering affirmative action in combat: Senior military personnel are considering giving women different military training than men, The Washington Times reports. He continued by saying that […]

A Gender-Neutral Army? An Army Neutralized by Gender?

| May 23, 2013

It’s not what most people imagine that gender neutral means and it’s not what it is supposed to mean because Congress defined gender-neutral as being “evaluated on the basis of common, relevant performance standards, without differential standards of evaluation on the basis of gender.” But by leaving “relevant” in there, the door was open for […]

Dead Women in Combat: Does Anyone Care?

| February 20, 2013

From Wesley Strackbein’s excellent (and sobering) historical commentary: Dead women — killed on the frontlines of combat — are no more a terrible sight to behold than dead men. So declared General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as he joined President Barack Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta in announcing […]

Testimony of Col. John W. Ripley to the Presidential Commission on the Assignment of Women in the Armed Forces

| February 2, 2013

This testimony is nearly 20 years old but so relevant right now: I feel I have a basis upon which to comment, and I would like to read this statement: First of all, this subject should not be argued from the standpoint of gender differences. It should not be argued from the standpoint of female […]

Women at War

| January 30, 2013

Steven Wedgeworth has brought everything down to what’s at the core of the women-in-combat issue: G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “Feminists are, as their name implies, opposed to anything feminine.” We are now seeing this come to its most poignant fulfillment, as “women’s equality” has reached the point of the US government putting them in full […]

Why men fight

| January 30, 2013

Another excellent piece from Mercatornet: Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, proclaimed that, “The time has come to rescind the direct combat exclusion rule for women and eliminate all unnecessary gender-based barriers to service,” Why is this necessary? How did such a “time” arrive upon us? According to theWall Street […]

Co-ed Combat and Cultural Cowardice

| January 26, 2013

Thank God for bold John Piper: If I were the last man on the planet to think so, I would want the honor of saying no woman should go before me into combat to defend my country. A man who endorses women in combat is not pro-woman; he’s a wimp. He should be ashamed. For […]

America the Barbarous: New Pentagon Policy Sanctions Women in Combat

| February 20, 2012

Sadly, there are no surprises here. I wrote about this issue almost nine years ago when people were just starting to broach the idea of putting wives, mothers, and daughters in harm’s way. Now it’s a fact cemented into US policy: While the Pentagon’s official policy has been to exclude women from being assigned to […]

Co-ed Submarines: Where’s the Debate?

| April 14, 2010

I can remember 15 years ago when there was real, serious debate about women in the military–particularly in combat units. But we were assured that women would not be put in harm’s way, kept in support roles far away from danger. So the frog in the pot kept quiet while the water slowly warmed. Fast-forward […]
