Thomas Sowell Addresses Sexual Assult In The Military.

June 14, 2013

When it comes to analyzing any issue, it is wise to find out what Thomas Sowell has to say before you make up your mind about what you think. His explanations are always understandable, his logic is impeccable, and most importantly he is going to tell you the unvarnished truth. Here is a recent article about the sexual assaults in the military, titled Sex And The Military. He always talks about thinking past stage one when analyzing a particular situation. Sober judgement is needed in these situations not emotional hand wringing.

Here are a few quotes from the article. “For thousands of years, people around the world had common sense to realize that putting young men and young women together in military operations was asking for trouble, not only for these young people of both sexes, but for the effectiveness of military forces entrusted with the fate of nations.”

“Too much of the discussion of issues involving the role of women in the military is based on questions about whether women can do the same tasks as men with equal efficiency. The real question is whether either sex functions as well with the other sex around. If you don’t think either sex functions as well with the other sex around. If you don’t think either sex finds the other sex distracting, you are ignoring thousands of years of experience around the world.”

For a more hard-hitting article read, An Inconvenient Truth About Women In Combat, by Jack Murphy, at sofrep.org.

My only question is, if women can’t fight off a sexual assault, how are they going to fight the enemy
