THE MARINE CORPS, due to silly, perilous, namby-pamby political correctness, was strong-armed into letting the ladies enter its infantry officer course.
The results are in: Drum roll. All failed.
This is excellent news. I thought the Marines would simply dumb down the course to show how fair and touchy-feely they are. But no. It appears they applied the same standards as the men have long faced. Given that, the results were a no-brainer.
Women do not belong in the Marine Corps infantry, nor in the Army infantry. We are not all equal. The Army infantry, lamentably, does have women, and my heart goes out to their male companions. I pray for their survival. And this changes nothing.
American society continues its swirl down the drain of its dark destiny.
TRYING TO INSERT women into the Marine Corps infantry officer ranks has, not surprisingly, failed utterly.
The Marine Corps got along famously for decades without women in its infantry, and that is how it should be. Then feminism reared its Butchy head, frightening the Marines, something they should be eternally embarrassed about, and they opened training for infantry officers to the distaff side.
Not surprisingly, the ladies couldn’t keep up. Most men can’t keep up. Women had nary a prayer. But due to the silly egalitarian/victim culture in which the United States now wallows, they had to be given a chance.
Women do have a place in the military, and that place is far back at headquarters, doing the thinking. Women are equal to men in the thinking area, but not in the brawn department.
Women should not be firemen either, which is one of the most physically grueling occupations that exists.
It’s nutty that these common-sense conclusions are considered reactionary these days.

There is one basic current in the political correctness movement. All of the movement’s outrages are related to this element.
That current is militant feminism from the Island of Lesbos. This current claims to be about equality, and that is true.
The manly women want to be like the guys, and they also want the guys to be like them. Unisex, and everybody equal.
The political correctness movement stormed the White House in 2008, and they installed an androgynous front man who looks like you could knock him over with a feather, the kind of fellow who wears a helmet on a bicycle.
He is disorganized. He dithers. His far more manly wife shoves him around. And his foreign policy is to say he’s sorry.
He has been dispatched from the Island of Lesbos. He is their guy, using the word loosely. And this is the cause of the assault on the U.S. military, the putting of women where they have no business being.
Places like the Marine Corps Infantry.
The horrors are piling up. Here is the latest. Barry wants male Marines to look more like women. Have you seen the new headgear? Here is a news story about Obama’s girly chapeau.
Barry aims to dip into the federal bank account, which is already the Red Sea, to extract $8 million for the hats that are almost identical to women Marines’ new headgear. It’s all about equality that tilts toward women.
More detritus washes ashore daily from the Island of Lesbos.
