"to say drugs is not an excuse
is disrespect to the millions of people
all over the world
and in all of history
who have gone thru rehab trying to change themselves"
COME ON NOW...
AGAIN, YOU ARE MAKING EXCUSES FOR ILL BEHAVIOR. IN MY WORLD, I DON'T GIVE OUT "PASSES" TO MOFOS JUST BCUZ THEIR UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF A CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE THAT THEY POLLUTED THEIR BODY WITH "WILLINGLY". THAT'S WHY THERE ARE LAWS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING...YES, YOU CAN GO TO "JAIL" FOR BREAKING THE LAW AND POSSIBLY HURTING ANOTHER PERSON. THE AUTHORITIES DON'T GIVE A PIGS AZZ IF YOURE STRUGGLING WITH BOOZE/DRUGS.
SAME WITH VIOLENCE. SAME WITH IKE TURNER. IF IT WERE MY DAUGHTER AND SOMEONE BEAT HER FACE IN AND LATER SAID "OH, SORRY MISSDANI, I JUST GOTTA A LIL DRUG PROBLEM AND HAD TO REARRANGE YOUR CHILD'S FACE CUZ I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF..." THEN THAT WOULD BE A NO-***-GO. REAL TALK.
AND "YOUR" COMMENTS ARE ACTUALLY THE ONES DISRESPECTING FOLKS WITH CHEMICAL DEPENDANCY ISSUES BCUZ ITS LIKE YOURE INSINUATING THEY (DRUG USERS) ALL WILL DO ANYTHING, INCLUDING VICIOUSLY ATTACK OTHERS...MY POINT IS THAT NOT ALL OF THEM DO THAT. ALOT DO, BUT NOT ALL. SO THAT SELF-DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE.
YOU ALSO SAID:
the reason for women not being able to fight
in combat has nothing to do with
these authors who write these books
and have already forfeited their souls
WOW...LOL...SO NOW ANY HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE SHOWING WOMEN IN THE PAST AS WARRIORS ARE ALL "STORIES" IN BOOKS JUST GIVE WOMEN A WARM, FUZZY FEELING? NOT.
"Prehistory and the Ancient World
Ancient warrior queens included Vishpla, Aahhotep I, Zabibi, Samsi, Tomyris, Himoko, Jingo Kogo, Mavia, Saimei and Dihya al-Kahina. There are depictions of Hittite women warriors dating from 1300 BC. The Bible describes the Judge, Deborah, as a war leader and the Greeks had legends of the Amazons which may have been based upon Scythians or women from Turkey or Libya. Vietnamese rebels included Trung Trac, Trung Nhi, Tran Thi Doan, *** Thi Chinh and Trieu Thi Trinh. Fa Mulan fought in the Chinese army..."
"And MsDani if you think the only reason
women dont fight on the front lines
is because of "the way it appears"
is just ridiculous"
INDEED THERE WERE MANY INSTANCES OF LAWS BEING CREATED TO DISALLOW WOMEN COMBAT FIGHTERS IN ANCIENT TIMES BECAUSE OF FEAR WO WOMEN ORGANZING, HAVING A "POLITICAL SAY", AND MAXIMIZING THEIR COLLECTIVE VOICES. IT WAS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT THE PHYSICALITY, YET VARIOUS GOVERNMENTS USED THAT AS AN EXCUSE...THUS DEEMING IT IMPROPER:
Laws forbidding women to fight:
These provide evidence that women were definitely fighting immediately before each law was passed, and probably in reasonably large numbers, otherwise there'd be no need for the law. Also, the fact that a law exists doesn't mean that it is universally obeyed, or that those disobeying it would be social outcasts. (consider: traffic laws such as speed limits and parking restrictions, dog licencing in the UK, pirate videos and computer software, and so on)
Emperor Alexander Severus issued an edict prohibiting women combatants in the arena in 200 AD
Women were barred from military participation in a law passed at the synod of Druim Ceat in 590 A.D. The law proved to be unenforceable when the women warriors refused to lay down their arms.
Papal *** of 1189 prohibited women from joining the Third Crusade
In 1644 King Charles issued a proclamation banning women who were with the armies during the English Civil War from wearing men's clothing.
In 1795 the French revolutionary government ordered Frenchwomen to return to their homes and prohibited them from attending political meetings, or gathering in groups of more than five.
Women were ordered out of the front lines of the Israeli Army by David Ben Gurion in 1950 (the last one left in the mid 1960s)

NEVERTHELESS, YOU HAVE REPEATEDLY MINIMIZED THE ROLES OF WOMEN IN HISTORY (FIGURES, SINCE I'M DIALOGUING WITH AN EMOTIONAL MALE. LOL HEHE) APPARENTLY, WE HAVE ONLY BEEN GOOD FOR BREAST FEEDING, BABY-MAKING, COOKING AND CLEANING IN THIS MAN'S WORLD SINCE ADAM AND EVE. LMAO.
HERE'S AN EXCERPT FROM AN ARTICLE ABOUT A MAN'S VERRRRRRRRRYYYYYY EMOTIONAL STATE IN WARTIME, SO MUCH SO, THAT THEY HAD TO "BAN" WOMEN IN ISRAEL FROM PARTICIPATING IN COMBAT SINE 1946:
"In On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society, Lt. Col. Dave Grossman briefly mentions that female soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces have been officially prohibited from serving in close combat military operations since 1948 (in 2001, subsequent to publication, women began serving in IDF combat units on an experimental basis). The reason for removing female soldiers from the front lines is no reflection on the performance of female soldiers, but that of the male infantrymen after witnessing a woman wounded. The IDF saw a complete loss of control over soldiers who apparently experienced an uncontrollable, protective, instinctual aggression."
BUT "WE'RE" THE ONES OVERLY EMOTIONAL?
I COULD PASTE MORE EXAMPLES BUT DON'T WANT TO HOG THE BOARD MORE THAN I ALREADY HAVE. *SIGH*
AND YOU ALSO HAVE FAILED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT ONLY "SOME" WOMEN PICK FIGHTS FOR A REASON AS DUMB AS GETTING A MALE'S ATTENTION. IT'S LIKE YOU REVEL IN KICKING A DEAD HORSE ABOUT THE FEMALES BEING "NATURALLY" UNABLE TO CONTROL THEMSELVES (NOT) AND THAT THE ONLY "LEVEL HEADED" HUMAN BEINGS WALKING THE PLANET ARE MALE.
