|THIS IS NOT A DRILL|
It's been a rough few weeks for women. First, a group of men who have only ever had relationships of whatever kind with other men (hopefully) pronounce us as condemned to hell if we use birth control. Then another group of 16th century thinkers claims that if women go into combat situations, they will either be raped by the brutes who surround them or protected by the chivalrous knights who surround them. Either way, this group states, women should not be in combat.
Have you ever seen an Alaska woman club a halibut, shoot a moose or gut a caribou? If Alaska women weren't pretty equal living partners in the Alaska Bush, survival would be much harder. When a bear attacks, most Alaska men are very happy their woman has a gun she knows how to use. I've yet to hear of an Alaska man flinging himself over the woman raising her gun to take a bear down in order to protect her. Alaska men are simply too smart to get in the way of a woman and her raised, loaded gun.

To deny women the right to a job for which they qualify based simply on their sex is wrong. If they can do the job, they should be given the opportunity to do it. And if they fail, their failure should have no more nor less meaning than it would have if it were a man who failed.
