"I’m a woman and I’m not offended by this, clearly it isn’t sexist!"
wow I didn’t realise you were the singular spokesperson for 3.5 billion people of different ages, races, religions, backgrounds, sexual orientations, social classes, and cultures, I’m so sorry
That’s cool, you just didn’t know.
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
How about teaching the politicians who send them?
We are aware they are people. War is horrible, both sides know this. Neither side is inherently “evil”, they are simply doing what they believe to be right - or doing what they feel necessary to keep those they care for safe. Having an all volunteer force keeps you from having to stand the watch and face these truths, remember that. Posts like this are very unnecessary and very disrespectful to us as military members. Please do not use us as examples in your personal tirades, use examples that you actually have experienced.
In addition, I find it very rude and hypocritical that on a website so absorbed in tagging things that may “trigger” others, that this post which vilifies our community to the point of soulless killers with no understanding of consequence has so many notes.
