Sending Mothers and Daughters to War

Roy Edroso, the Village Voice‘s tour guide to the conservative blogosphere, finds it odd that I think there were any problems associated with integrating women into the military. I guess he’s never heard of fraternization, pregnancies, or sexual harassment, none of which were much in evidence in the days of the Women’s Auxillary Corps. But here’s what I find odd: that progressives instinctively like the idea of women killing and dying in war. Older forms of liberalism might have cared about peace and liberty a bit more than egalitarianism and flinging hydrogen bombs through glass ceilings. Florence Nightingale, after all, was in a healing rather killing profession. Oh well. Onward, Feminist Soldiers!
