I’m glad that women are now able to be enlisted in combat roles within the military.But i do wanna express my opinion on a 2 things that i fear is going to happen cause of this.This is my list of what i’m afraid is going to likely happen.
- Sexual harassment/ Sexist remarks
- Unequal treatment during training
Sexual harassment/ sexism
There is a lot of cases of rape and sexual harassment in the military and i believe the percentage of sexual assault will rise due to women entering combat roles.It makes me sick knowing that this already occurs and it saddens me to know that women will have to realize that they may get killed in action at war by the enemy and at the very same time, may become a victim of sexual assault by fellow service members.Yes, the chances of being sexually assaulted is slim but this percentage of this occurring will definitely rise with more combat jobs being opened to women and that is a factor the military has to be aware of.There will be more sexism as well.A big chunk of men in the military have the ‘women should be in the kitchen’ attitude and this is something that must be changed.Unit conflict can affect mission accomplishment and that is a big no for the military.The mission of the military is to fight and win wars and any threat to mission accomplishment should be demolished.
Unfair treatment during training
Lets be honest here, a lot of men get pussy whooped by merely talking to a girl and this can result in devastating actions. The role of a grunt is tough. They are the force that wins battles and wins wars and we’ve been winning wars for 200 some odd years now so the way we train grunts can not be changed! Grunts have a mission accomplishment first, troop welfare second type of attitude and i’m afraid nco’s and snco’s will not be able to instill this attitude to women because they may try to flirt with them and as a result,may give them less stress and less work compared to the average male grunt and therefore, not giving proper training to females.If any females do not receive the proper training, this may lead a grunt getting killed and that is a big fucking no! If any female should become a grunt, she should be treated the same as the male grunt,nothing more and nothing less.They need the ass chewings,the stupid fucking buddy rushes, and everything else that makes being a grunt a tough job,no exceptions what so ever!
In conclusion, I am happy that women can now be in combat roles.Serving your country is one the greatest things one can accomplish and i am glad women are now able to fight in the frontlines. This is a big step in society and another step to eliminating discrimination.As long as we do not treat the female grunt any differently then we would then a male grunt, then we should be ok. And who knows, maybe i’ll live to see the first female Medal of Honor Recipient.
