Are they hot?


Ok, but seriously:
As stated it's due to reproduction.

So a 65 year old (male or female) is less important to the species than a 25 year old of either sex.

statistically This is 100% improbably as you are alive to post this.

Men in the military also rape the women. So, I don't think the guys are that much of a protector. No protective instincts involved in raping, maiming, and killing women or even standing by while a woman is harmed.
again... Those nasty facts: rape and sexual assault in the military happens.... They are only human. But it happens LESS OFTEN than similar demographics outside the military. (General public, collage campus, grocery store, etc)

So, I don't see where male soldiers seeing a woman soldier killed would be any more traumatic than seeing another male soldier killed.
Obviously (by your other statements) you have neither a firm grasp of reality, or a factual viewpoint.
...but haters gonna hate, and the U.S. Military (from which I am medically retired) protects your right to hate us.

No thanks necessary.

Well it just SUCKS that so many women benefited from all that awful "benevolent sexism..."
I swear, women will complain about living longer than men and insist that's men's fault as well...

Also, speaking of women being "viewed" as being weaker and unable to defend themselves... if that's not true... then why are men CONTINUOUSLY blasted for "hurting women" and not stepping in to "protect them?"

Women cannot prop themselves up as "strong women" if those strong women constantly need those "evil" men's help.

I wish! Good luck with that. I know it's gotten really old to keep referencing the movie 'Idiocracy' but the opening scene explaining how the dumb and poor easily outbreed the smart and financially secure hits home every damn day when a US citizen watches the news.

I'm sure women love hearing that men value them more because they can take on the duty of squeezing out one baby after another if a society ever needs to ratchet up its population numbers.

Biologically the women first thing makes sense. But children? Just takes 9 months to make a new one.

You mean how men like it that they aren't worth as much as women for the same reasons?

But women are not weaker than men

so we should modify it today to

"straight women of child bearing age who choose not to use contraceptives and are willing to have more children "
