   Family Research Council says women can't serve in combat because they can't pee outdoors. No, seriously, they said that

Wait, of course they haven't.

Why are they against US defense?

Well it's only logical, guys. It's the same reason we passed the nationwide ban on women camping back in the 90s.

Women can't pee outdoors? Really? You really believe that, Family Research Council?

Oh hey, they're attacking non-gays. This is one of the anti-gay family organizations, right? They're so many of them, I lose track.

To a certain, rather substantial proportion of the "Christian" "conservative" community, female anatomy is mysterious and scary.

I don't know, I saw some porn once that said otherwise.

Wow... I didn't know the Family Research Council has such a pull with who can and cannot fight in combat.

Is Family Research Council attempting to be a comedy troupe like Second City?

Cuz damn, they're pretty hilarious.

If women are eligible to serve in combat, why aren't they eligible to be drafted to serve in combat?

I thought the problem would be the specialty booby armor. Can't just send a breast plate to an armorer to make adjustments. At least not these days.

They should see my wife walking home after leaving the bar and a long subway ride... Their wrongness cannot be overstated.

Right. And nobody pees in the shower either. The urge to urinate - the great equalizer.

I once saw a product that was a little disposable paper triangle/cone that was intended to allow ladies to use urinals.

Wait until the Family Research council funds out that we're letting Negroes into integrated units!

Also did they hear that homosexuals can serve openly?

I knew that name sounded familiar...this is the general who was such a fundamentalist Nutjob  that even the Bush Adminsitration had to can him for pissing off half the Muslim world with his speeches to churches that included the Line about hunting a Muslim warlord in Somalia  " I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol."

He's also been one of the leading voices Yammering on about victory mosques and Sharia law in the US IIRC

I believe they can sign up for Selective Service, but it's optional, not mandatory. Will that change now?

Well since this ruling about women serving in combat just happened a few days ago I'm guessing the rules for drafting women will not be far behind.

Anyone else ever notice how every single one of these objections to women serving in combat has already been proven wrong by the decade or so that we've let them be shot at in Iraq and Afghanistan?

At least when they were objecting to gays serving openly they could point to something that was actually going to change. They may as well be arguing that we can't take the chance on letting women drive or vote.

Fair question.

If they're gonna be in combat, make them sign up for Selective Service at age 18, just like males do.

Israel lets their women serve the front line and their army is arguably a lot tougher than ours. Israel can do no wrong in the eyes of many Republicans and anyone who speaks out against them is against "Judeo-Christian values" and therefore anti-American. But I guess this doesn't count?

Many women I know would beg to differ. . . In my family it's called a wilderpee- much easier than a wilderpoo.

That's ludacrisp! The real women that women can't be in combat is that there might spiders in those fox holes...and women do not deal well with spiders.

Well, of course they can pee outdoors. What they can't do is write their name in the snow or pee higher on the wall than a man can.

So again, they're inferior. Besides, what kind of combat can they possibly engage in when they're in the kitchen - as they should be?

Womens equality is basically a sprint to PTSD, Heart Disease, Stress, hypertension etc etc oh but there is a bigger paycheck so it is AWESOME.

Do women realize that if guys could basically give it all up, let them take care of making the money and stay home, most would do it in a heartbeat ?

Just what do you Christian fundamentalists think Jewish women did during the 40 years they supposedly wandered in the desert? You know, like in that story? It's near the beginning of that book you guys like to hold while you yell at gay people heading to a club or women going to the ob-gyn.
