Military Women: Third Class Citizens?Dr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com
“Le droit du seigneur” seems to be right at home in the U.S. Military.
(MOLALLA, Ore.) - This article is a direct response to an article in the New York Times June 3, 2011 titled WHEN STATES PUNISH WOMEN which was about the Congressional block of appropriation of money for PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
I nearly threw up when I read this. It is supposed to be because Planned Parenthood pays a very small amount for legal medical abortion information and does provide some abortions.
First of all if the equality of the sexes was a fact and MEN became pregnant this would be a NON-issue. Men seem to be involved somehow in pregnancies. Are the states making men pay child support for these babies? No, not that I have heard about.
This brings me to another equally or more important fact about Military Rape and third class citizens. I have written about this before in salem-news.com.
I just acquired new information. It is well-known that women are considered second class citizens around the world in the face of male domination. Whether it shows up worst in the military is not precisely known but in most societies women are to be totally subservient to men, but what about the U.S. Military.
On June 15, 2011, I accidentally tuned in the House of Representatives in which Representative Jackie Speer was speaking about Military Rape and Sexual Harassment.
She reported 19,000 rapes in the Military but I didn’t get the time span but I do read about it all the time. It seems to boil back to the French expression “Le droit du seigneur” or “right of the lords” which in the “old days” and last month with Dominique Straus-Kahn, the International Monetary Fund executive, tried to exercise his “right” to the hotel maids body.
According to Representative Jackie Speer and her report of 19,000 Military Rapes I am SURPRISED, “close combat” has a new meaning. What really sickens me is these mostly senior non-coms and officers are getting away with these rapes and harassment.
Yes “le droit du seigneur” seems to be right at home in the U.S. Military.
