    There are a LOT of women I’d rather have covering my back in combat than the likes of Rush, and those whining they can’t do the job.

    I technically think this is great, but my spidey-sense is telling me it was more about increasing recruit volumes than about personal liberties.

    “Imagine the following scenario. A female pilot is shot down over enemy.”
    We don’t have to imagine it as it has already happened but the rest of your scenario is a bit, uh, unique to say the least.

    Theo: run a few volts through a guy’s privates, and he can get talkative, and THAT is not serious torture. The POW argument is stupid and silly.

    My daughter was the first female firefighter/paramedic in her county. The “manly men” said she didn’t have the upper body strength to do the job. When she set a new record for the physical agility (and strength) test for that county, they backed off a tad. BTW, she’s slender, very attractive and done modeling, is now an RN, races bicycles (and beats most men), is a triathlete (beating most men) and can shoot better than most men I’ve known.

    Yes, statistically women DO have less upper body strength than men, but the military in the U.S. has sadly found in recent decades, that “statistical average” for men has also gone way, way, down. However, the BMI (not muscles) for the average American male has gone UP, while their general physical stamina, and condition, has declined considerably.

    Also, the Air Force has found that women can handle more "g’s " than men, and can do quite well as fighter pilots. Though with drones, even those teletubby guys can now be “combat pilots”.

    Since half of all fertilized eggs never implant in the uterus, and even more are lost to “natural” miscarriage, the “personhood” folks saying humanity starts at conception, must be aware that real misogynist is their “God”.
