Women Should Be Recognized as Natural Protectors: Air Force Secretary

Article here. Excerpt:

'Women in the military should be recognized for their inherent roles as "protectors" to boost their advancement in the ranks and enhance their recruitment and retention, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson said Tuesday.

"If I asked everyone in this room to think, just close your eyes for a second and think about the most protective person you know in your life, someone who would do anything to keep you safe -- half the people in this room are thinking about their moms," she said.

"We are the protectors," Wilson said in making the case for valuing women's contribution to the military's mission.

"That's what the military does. We serve to protect the rest of you, and that's a very natural place for a woman to be," she said in testimony with the two other service secretaries at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the budget.'

Didn't feminism once condemn blanket sex role statements?

This lady's also a gender feminist and bigot. You can tell just from the content and nature of her statement.

Is this how you do evidence based practice in the feminist echo chamber. Close your eyes, listen to your gut feeling, and click your heels three times? Sounds more like goddess mythology.
Can hardly wait until these protectors of society charge into battle wearing their vag hats with M16s blazing motherly love at the enemy.

She's Air Force. They're trained for about 5 mins. in M-16 usage during basic and that's it. AF basic is more like a series of classes interspersed with running a couple miles here and there. Today's USAF air bases are as likely to see action as a nun in a convent -- filled with straight nuns. (Well, theoretically, anyway.) In short, the AF is ideal for women. No actual danger of combat in the classic sense and basic training is more a social function than anything else.

All that and you get to act all special. The AF is tailor-made for feminist women to colonize. Soon it'll be 90% female. The 10% left who are male will be the mechanics and pilots.
