Women in the Military/Prevalance of Rape and Gender Violence
Recently a FoxNews pundit made some incendiary comments regarding gender roles within the military, rape counseling and punishment, and feminism. She argues that women who enlist in the military are asking to get raped and, because they are weaker, both physically and mentally, than men, they shouldn't be allowed on the front lines. Further, she argues that women who are raped should not receive any sort of support, legal or emotional, because it is not our job as a country to protect our soldiers.
Basically, why do you think that we as a culture are still insistent on traditional gender roles are why are we so eager to regard women with derision? Discuss.
