Kirsten Gillibrand Applies Feminist Ideology to the Military

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is a ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel. She vows to block the appointment of the highly regarded James Mattis as Defense Secretary. This is consistent with her tendency to promote an ideology that is not a smooth fit with military effectiveness. Gillibrand…

cheered the Pentagon’s decision to open up all combat jobs to women last December, despite a recommendation from the Marine Corps to keep some frontline combat jobs closed to women. A comprehensive study by the service found that female members were injured twice as often as men in combat, less accurate with infantry weapons, and not as effective at removing wounded individuals from the battlefield.

In other news pertaining to the feminist agenda, a moonbat named Churan Zheng barks from atop a soapbox provided by the BBC that women should be allowed to take time off work each month due to menstruation:

I cannot stop thinking that if men had periods then menstrual leave might have been written into national constitutions from the very beginning.

It would hardly be surprising to see Gillibrand propose legislation imposing this on the armed forces.

We had better stay out of major wars if the military continues to be used as a laboratory for leftist social engineers. Fortunately, this nonsense will be constrained if moonbats like Gillibrand are unable to block the highly encouraging nomination of James Mattis.

Moonbats like Gillibrand are more of a threat to the military than foreign armies.
