Poland and Russia Resist Homosexualization

January 27, 2013

 

DANIEL S. writes:

In Poland the legislative body voted down draft legislation that would allow for the legal recognition of homosexual civil unions. This means of course that Poland will come under even more pressure from the American government and Soros-funded NGOs to jettison its Catholic tradition and accept “human rights” and the open society to usher in the reign of abortion on demand, homosexuality, and other sacred cows of cultural Marxism and American liberalism.

The Russian Duma has been even more proactive in opposing the homosexual agenda. They took their first legislative steps toward banning homosexual propaganda and public expressions of support for homosexual “rights.” Expect the media in America and Europe to ratchet up their efforts to demonize Vladimir Putin as a ruthless, reactionary autocrat who stands in the way of democracy and human rights.

More on the Absurdity of Coed Combat

January 27, 2013

 

HERE’S YET another of the many unexamined consequences of the planned entry of women into combat — one of the dumbest and most despicable ideas ever proposed by the American government.

Ryan Smith, who served in Iraq as a Marine infantrymen, writes in the Wall Street Journal that placing men and women together in war conditions will cause shame and embarrassment. Of course you don’t have to be a veteran to know this. Anyone who has watched a few war movies with his common sense intact knows how ridiculous and unnatural it would be to have men and women live in battlefield conditions together or to expect women to relieve themselves on the battlefield as easily as men do.

Smith writes:

Societal norms are a reality, and their maintenance is important to most members of a society. It is humiliating enough to relieve yourself in front of your male comrades; one can only imagine the humiliation of being forced to relieve yourself in front of the opposite sex.

Despite the professionalism of Marines, it would be distracting and potentially traumatizing to be forced to be naked in front of the opposite sex, particularly when your body has been ravaged by lack of hygiene. In the reverse, it would be painful to witness a member of the opposite sex in such an uncomfortable and awkward position. Combat effectiveness is based in large part on unit cohesion. The relationships among members of a unit can be irreparably harmed by forcing them to violate societal norms.

Smith does not even mention the obvious fact that hygiene for women is much more complicated.

While searching the Internet for coverage of the Walk for Life, I found this inauguration photo.

The Obamas’ iconic fists brought back memories of the protests that overwhelmed my college campus — and the nation at large — during the cultural upheaval of 1968-69.
