CNN: The U.S. military is ending its policy of excluding women from combat and will open combat jobs and direct combat units to female troops, CNN has learned. Multiple officials confirm to CNN that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will make the announcement tomorrow and notify Congress of the planned change in policy.
Ladies. This is what you get for demanding equality. You say chivalry is dead, but you’re the ones who killed it. Decades ago men were made to be men and women were made to be women. Whether or not you think that is a good thing is up to you. You demand equal pay? You demand equal health insurance quotes (even though men pay more for car insurance)? Fine, you can serve in combat situations then.
Does this also mean that the “women and children first” unspoken rule is just going to be “children” first now? There’s a reason that there are more women than men in the western world, and it’s partially because we go to war.
