MRA: Women make bad soldiers because they’ll sleep with guys who aren’t you

 

Women in the military can be very distracting

The latest hot take on women in the military, courtesy of the Men’s Rights subreddit:

ABunchofTards 1 point 11 hours ago Honestly, letting women in the military is a horrible idea. They make inferior soldiers for obvious reasons, and even in support roles, the amount of love triangles and gender strife will severely degrade unit cohesion. You're not likely to have your buddy's back if you have to listen to him fucking the girl you like every few nights or so. It's simply unrealistic to expect people not to be people. You can shake your fist at the heavens and damn humans for being the flawed monkeys that they are while refusing to take it into account, or you can plan around our species' flaws and actually get things done.

They’re “inferior soldiers for obvious reasons?” What “obvious reasons?”

Because they’ll sneak away in the middle of a firefight to have a tea party with their dollies? No, that’s little girls (and some boys), not adult women.

Because they can only live for a limited amount of time out of water? Oh, wait, that’s goldfish.

Because they’ll poke too many holes in their uniforms and possibly in other soldiers as well? No, that’s porcupines.

Because they’re 1,300,000 times the size of earth? No, that’s the sun.

Oh, wait, it has something to do with shoes, right? Women love shoes!

And if the whole shoe thing isn’t enough, we should definitely kick women out because when they engage in prohibited sexual activity, that’s totally their fault and not at all the fault of the guys having sex with them, and also because when a really cute women has sex with some dude it might make some other dude feel sad because that ungrateful slut should really be breaking military rules with me and not that dickhead Tony who thinks he’s so cool, but somehow Tony himself isn’t at fault, because I dunno, he’s basically all right, a real solid dude, when you think about it, he can’t help it that women are always throwing themselves at him, man I wish I were more like Tony.

Huh. So if we’re going to start tossing people out of the army for making other people upset, should we toss all people of color out of the military because some white solders are racist?

If there’s some soldier who really hates standing in line at the mess hall, should we kick everyone standing in front of him out of the army?

And if we’re preemptively tossing whole groups of people out for hypothetical things they might possibly do, why not toss gay men out of the military (again) because they might get some of those tiny yappy dogs — I mean, gay guys love those tiny yappy dogs, right? — and these tiny yappy dogs might chew through the wires of some really important piece of equipment? (Wouldn’t that make a great comedy? Email me if you want to buy the movie rights to this paragraph.)

Hell, I’m pretty sure everyone on planet Earth has the capacity to make some other person on Earth feel bad or suffer inconvenience, so let’s just toss everyone out of the military just in case.

I should point out that not everyone in the Men’s Rights subreddit agrees with ABunchofTards here. Indeed, the top response to his comment comes from a subreddit regular, blueoak9, who declares that the assumption that women are naturally terrible soldiers

is insulting. It insults the women I served with which means it insults me. There were women who were shit soldiers, and men too, but it had nothing to do with their gender or how people interacted with them.

And as for all that “love triangle” nonsense, blueoak9 informs Mr. Tards that women in the armed forces are actually very stinky.

I have news for you – human females smell about as intensely as human males; it’s just a feature of the species – and after a few days in the field they get pretty unappetizing, so all this rumpy-humpy you are imagining is pure fantasy. I never observed any of it. I’m sure it happened, but it was rare and surreptitious.

And besides, when this, er, rumpy=humpy does happen, you’ll get some too because these gals will have sex with pretty much anyone.

[A]s for not having your buddy’s back because you are somehow jealous of him – that’s a rather civilian perspective. Much more likely is telling him it’s your turn next. A lot of women get a lot of dick in the Army; it’s a perk of service.

So there you have it. Women are terrible soldiers except when they aren’t, and they will have lots of sex except when they don’t but even when they don’t they do.

I’m glad the fellows on the Men’s Rights subreddit were able to resolve this issue peacefully.

UPDATE: In case you’re wondering about the illustration I used for this post, you can read about the artist here. It was used as the cover of a men’s adventure magazine in 1971.

Taos, Viscaria –

Hambeast & everyone – that article is a weird mix all right. DO NOT read the comments. Not sure what’s worse: people who think Tucker Max has uncovered da troof, or people who think he’s way too kind to women ….
Also, the Thought Catalogue logo thingie looks too similar to that of the wonderful Toast @ http://the-toast.net/ Bad!!

EJ, Katz, Alan, Victorious Parasol – wow. Thank you, thank you all. Utterly brilliant.

Nick – true, there’s no doubt plenty of extra points Clem’s article could cover. I think she tried to ‘boil it all down’, given that she deals with this crap on a constant, day-in/day-out basis. Maybe we (all of us here) could add to it 🙂

I’m sure there’s something good on thought catalog somewhere, but everything I’ve ever read is either a troll piece or a piece written by someone who is privilege blind and clueless.

Plus, Tucker Max is an asshole in general:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucker_Max

“In 2012, hoping to offset a part of his owed taxes in a way that also provided self-promotion, Max reportedly offered to donate $500,000 to Planned Parenthood if they named an abortion clinic after him. Planned Parenthood declined.”

Classy!

Wait, I thought that was the MRA reason for why women make bad human beings?

These guys need a new dead horse to beat, this one is so old all they’re doing is stirring the maggots.

Waaaaaaaah! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! Women aren’t conscripted! American women don’t have to register for the draft! IT’S NOT FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRR!

But they would make shit soldiers so they shouldn’t be in the military….

I’d just like to add that one of the “content from elsewhere on the web” adverts is currently showing a beautiful model with carefully-dishevelled hair and quirky-coloured-yet-immacuately-applied lipstick, with the tagline: 10 THINGS MEN FIND UNATTRACTIVE.

Either that advertising bot badly, badly misjudged its audience or there are some interesting things I don’t know about going on.

When I’m on my phone, ALL of the ads are like that. I don’t think I’ve seen even one that wasn’t somewhere between “A bit sexist” and “Did Elam write that?” And it can’t be targeted, because this is the only site I ever visit on my phone. Bloody Taboola.

Can you make a statement about this video. Cause its again this whole ‘women are evil for choosing equally evil men(eventhough men are just as bad and choose the evil women..)

My son is currently serving in the military. At his boot camp graduation, he made the comment that, as tough as the men were (both as enlisted and as officers), the women tended to be tougher and worked harder. But then, he thinks it’s still tougher for women recruits in general than it is for men.

That video …. it made me want to throw up. Half my brain was responding on an analytical level (e.g. “if you want to know more, please see Google for answers” – seriously???) and the other half was a churning gut reaction to the misogyny and racism.
I need to go and hug my kittens now 🙁

I don think critisizing islam invasion is racist at all. But the fact they claim that only women LOVE islam and all that is fucking nonsense. But sure they were really generalzing about muslim people, and women. Women do critizise islam just as much as men do. However we dont call all muslim people ”scum” because not all are alike.

And yeah the video was funny. Bashing women for choosing nazis, while not bashing men being nazis. Thats so fucking funny. Racists gonna choose other racists, thats nothing new. The fact that they EXPECT women to be nice and well-behaved, while ignoring male mistakes, is indeed sexist.

They somehow felt opressed by the fact that men cant simply f*ck around with a mistress and get her pregnant without consequences or the fact that their wife could be angry about that, while they find it very evil that women now have sex with more than 2 people… and that the sexual freedom of women destroys everything. Amusing.

They claim that there is no patriachy, but also say that the freedom of women depends solely on men and their personal wishes. Ironic. Society is much more complex than that.
