BEING LIBERAL MEANS NEVER HAVING TO FACE THE FACTS | 2005-05-07
Can you imagine a Respectable Conservative pointing out to a liberal that "nearly 150 female cadets" being sexually assaulted completely destroys the left's arguments for women in combat?
Everyone knows that conquering armies rape the women of the losers. It is understood that the aggressiveness required for waging war spills over into other behaviors.
So if women were the equals of men in combat, they would sexually assault men at roughly the same rate as men assault women.
"Nearly 150" to zero does not bode well for the combat readiness of women. Only someone as insensitive as ole Bob will point this out.
Of course, it would be really insensitive for ole Bob to point out that none of the traditional religions allow women in combat. Only the religion of Political Correctness insists on this.
The article has several other figures that aren't meant to be studied closely. For example, "55 instances of religious bias in the past five years" translates to 11 per year. For a school with 4,000 cadets, that translates to less than one quarter of one percent. Since the school is 1% Jewish, less than 1% Muslim, and roughly 8% other, does that sound like such a big deal?
Do you think that out of a group of 40 Jews, 30 something Muslims (at a military school in the midst of a war in the middle east) and 350 assorted non-Christians you could find 11 who might not like Bible verses in emails or crosses in dorm rooms?
