Science vs theology.

Scientists and the popular media are claiming that women are fallen, and therefore tempted to sin.  But Christian theologians know that women are innately good, and if they are ever tempted to sin it is because they don’t have enough self esteem.

Broadcasting what they bring to the table.

After a successful hunt (or fishing trip), men like to show off with a picture of what they are bringing to the table.  The appeal for men to demonstrate their ability to provide in such a primal way is obvious.  But for women, hunting or fishing and then posing with their kill has lacked this appeal for equally obvious reasons;  provision isn’t what women bring to the table.

Women are however skilled at finding ways to re-purpose activities to meet their own needs, and have finally found a way to make fishing as fun and meaningful for women as it is for men (LSFW).

Every submarine, every SEAL team.

Oscar commented:

I’ve served in all-male units and I’ve served in mixed sex units, and the all-male units simply worked more smoothly…

This of course was what the Marine Corps found when they compared teams with all men and mixed sex teams.  The Marine Corps study was promptly dismissed because it doesn’t fit the narrative.  The only solution here is to make it impossible to compare mixed sex and all male units.  This is one of the reasons that all units, every single one, must include women. If there are any units without women, the men will be able to identify the difference.  Every submarine, every SEAL team, etc. must include a woman or it will be possible to point out that all male teams perform better.  This won’t happen overnight, but it is the fundamental goal and we should expect that it will eventually be accomplished.

The other reason this has to happen is women’s envy of gratitude and respect. Our nation must never again be grateful for the sacrifice of men without in the same breath stating that we are equally grateful for the sacrifice of the women who were present. At all costs.  Never again. To feminists it is better to lose a battle, or even a war, than to suffer that unbearable indignity.  Our political and military leaders have heard this order, and are fully committed to carrying it out.

The new bargain here is identical to the new bargain on marriage. Men will retain sole responsibility for the success or failure of the mission, but women will be declared fully equal partners while having a long list of special rights. This is why the fact that failure is much more likely doesn’t really bother most (conservatives or liberals). All we need is for the men to stop complaining, man up, and somehow make it all work. Then we can get on with the business of thanking the men and women who protected us.

Why can’t women do pull ups? It’s a culture thing.

With the news coming out today that the sole remaining female Marine has dropped out of the Infantry Officer’s Course (CNN, Marine Corps Times*) it seems like a good time to look into why women in the military are having so much trouble meeting physical fitness requirements.  According to the CNN video below from January of 2014, the reason women lack upper body strength is women aren’t taught how to do pull ups.  Here is the relevant exchange between CNN Anchor Don Lemon and CNN Pentagon correspondent Chris Lawrence:

Chris Lawrence:  What they’re gonna do now, is… looking at better ways to train women to do these push-ups [sic].  There is a feeling that from the time they are girls, girls don’t do push-ups, even women who workout religiously and are very physically fit are not working those kind of muscles and trying to build up that bigger upper body by doing pull-ups.  So, what they want to do is go in and really teach women better ways to train to do this particular exercise.

Don Lemon:  Yeah, working the upper body that’s a guy thing, right?  And I mean, guys you see at the gym with skinny legs, big upper bodies.

Chris Lawrence:  It’s the beach muscles.  It’s the beach workout.

Here is the video, starting with the exchange between Lemon and Lawrence:

All of this is of course a smokescreen in an effort to pretend that standards aren’t being lowered in the process of further integrating the armed forces.  Something has to give, and even if we have a Republican in the white house next year the Obama administration’s decision to open all combat roles to women won’t be rolled back.  Part of being conservative means conserving feminist progress, so the only question now is how fast and how far the standards will be lowered in order to finally complete the construction of our new feminist military.

The real problem with the Ghostbusters reboot.

I left the following paragraph as a comment over on Instapundit the other day, and I think it is worth sharing here and expanding on:

The real problem with the reboot is that it was the stereotypical dreary feminist message. Feminism sells just fine, but the new Ghostbusters was straight from the ministry of feminist entertainment. It was the movie version of the soviet fashion show Wendy’s parodied in their famous commercial. Very few women (and fewer men) want to watch a group of dumpy women in ill fitting ugly jumpsuits and combat boots. It is that simple. Hollywood can sell feminism all day long, and has been doing so with no problem for decades. But even Hollywood can’t sell the dumpy lesbian feminism that Ghostbusters was selling.

For those who aren’t familiar with the Wendy’s commercial I referenced above:

For an example of Hollywood successfully selling feminist characters, see the far more successful Suicide Squad.  Suicide Squad proves that you can sell feminism to both men and women at the movies, so long as the women are sexy.  In fact, crazy is fine so long as it is hot and crazy.

But to the party faithful feminism must be dreary or they won’t be happy.  It isn’t enough to have a group of kick ass women, they have to be wearing sensible shoes.

Male feminist Scott Hansen at Sheboygan Press explains in ‘Suicide Squad’ perpetuates Hollywood sexism:

As portrayed by Margot Robbie, Harley Quinn is physically strong and able to outwit most of the “Suicide Squad” male characters, but unfortunately has to do so in a glorified bikini while being leered at by most of the male cast.

Hansen describes three other kick ass women in the movie, but all of them suffer the same fate of being sexually desired.

What Hansen doesn’t understand is that it is even more important to the women in the audience that the women on the screen be hot than it is to the men.  A good rule of thumb for women is would they want to dress up like the character for Halloween?  Even with a slightly sexed up version of the Ghostbusters costume, I don’t think they will have trouble keeping up with demand.  Even the ugliest feminist doesn’t want to be seen as ugly.  Costume vendors understand this, which is why they have created “sexy” versions (here and here) that look nothing like the outfits in the movie.  Those will surely sell far better than the more accurate reproduction, but I still suspect they won’t be top sellers.  On the other hand, there is a whole page full of options for Harley Quinn costumes, and if you want one I would suggest that you order well in advance.
