I found an interesting development and good analysis over at The Patriot Perspective.
Saying that women don’t belong isn’t too popular a stance nowadays. Still, it needs saying sometimes. It doesn’t mean women should have their opportunities limited because their gender is inferior. It just means the constraints of reality can limit women’s opportunities whether we like to admit it or not.
Have a great weekend, everyone!

The Marine Corps school that produces infantry combat officers will enroll its first-ever female students this year, Marine Corps Times has learned.
As part of the service’s extensive research campaign to determine what additional jobs could be opened to women, an undetermined number of volunteers will attend the Infantry Officers Course in Quantico, Va., said Gen. Joseph Dunford, the Corps’ assistant commandant. There, Marine officers are groomed to serve in direct combat roles and lead troops into battle.
“We are in the process right now of soliciting volunteers,” Dunford said on Wednesday.
It’s a monumental — if controversial — move for the Marine Corps, which until now barred female Marines from the program and required instead that they attend other courses aimed at preparing them for assignments in support roles such as logistics, personnel administration and aircraft maintenance, among others.
Nothing good will come of this. Women aren’t up to the physical demands. Many men aren’t either. There will be women put in jobs they shouldn’t be in, and when some fail, the standards will be reduced. Everyone will suffer.
