Another soldier

Feminine Genius has a post about a young woman soldier who was just killed. The reality of women in combat has so many awful implications that anyone would think that just from the point of view of morale it would not be encouraged. But political correctness overcomes reason and logic everytime. As Genevieve of Feminine Genius says:

I have no problem with the military, and was a Navy wife for years. I'm not even opposed to the mission in Iraq, leaving the controversy about it to those who know more facts about it than I do. But what I have always disliked about women in combat is reinforced by a book I'm reading at present (review to come) about Mao's plan for China, and one key part of communism was to undermine beauty, family, and motherhood as bourgeois, each to be rooted out. Thus women were to be drafted and treated with no distinction because in the proletariat dream, femininity was the enemy.

My initial reaction, too, dear.

The communist war against femininity certainly rings true, as soon as you stop to think about it. It goes hand in hand with the proposition that people are not permitted a private life, since they must be dedicated not to their families but solely to the state. In the modern feminist view, however, you must be dedicated not solely to the state, but solely to yourself. Everywhere it is assumed that if you stay at home to take care of your family that you are making a tremendous sacrifice and are being denied your rights to act only for yourself.

Yes, Linda. It is basically making a god of someone or something, other than Our Lord. And every false god is a demon....

I also have problems with the current lineup of bang bang you're dead detective fare with women waving Glocks around as if they were feather dusters.
