Feminist angst: they weren’t there to get bin Laden

Ah, lowering standards in the name of inclusion. Heather Mac Donald takes aim at the feminist hand-wringing over the lack of females on Seal Team 6:

It was just a matter of time before the successful Navy SEAL operation against Osama bin Laden on May 1 provoked a complaint that SEAL teams are all-male. Sure enough, Washington Post pundit (and founder of the feminist website Jezebel.com) Anna Holmes came through last week with a column denouncing the “paternalistic, discriminatory” exclusion of women from special-operations units and comparing that exclusion to racial segregation. If you’d like to get a full picture of feminist thought today, just combine Holmes’s column with the ongoing farce at Yale University, which is under federal investigation for allegedly denying female students equal educational opportunities. Not only has the rise of women to positions of power and control in American society not dented feminist irrationality, it seems to have exacerbated that irrationality.

  1. That actually made me giggle. Nothing against women, but I don’t think most if any could pass that Navy SEAL criteria. Feminists are really silly these days. They have reduced themselves to a joke.

  2. this . . . this makes my brain hurt. I’m gonna tell my hubs about this just to watch steam come out of his ears.
