Phyllis Schlafly doesn't like feminists and it sounds like she doesn't think much of men, either. According to her, men are so weak willed, and women in combat so conniving in using their sexual charms that men will not be able to help assaulting them, and thus, will be unfairly blamed for a rise in sexual assault in the military. She also called Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta a "coward" for allowing women in combat. Her vitriol continues:
Of course, Panetta doesn’t want to be grilled about his order. It’s lacking in common sense and it is toadying to the feminist officers who yearn to be 3- and 4-star generals based on the feminist dogma of gender interchangeability and on their desire to force men into situations to be commanded by feminists.
Panetta’s order may be illegal or even unconstitutional because the authority to make such a radical change was specifically granted to Congress, according to former Defense Department Inspector General Joseph E. Schmitz. A constitutional expert, Schmitz held the position of the Defense Department’s top investigator from 2002 to 2005 after 27 years of service in the U.S. Navy, including 5 years of active duty.
And of course, Schlafly deftly uses the well worn (and untrue) argument that women are too weak to pass the physical examinations for combat situations, that combat duty will be voluntary for women but involuntary for men, that women will somehow be not doing their duty because they'll be busy getting pregnant and having sexual fraternization with their male counterparts–in other words, women in combat, Phyllis Schlafly thinks you're a slut:
Military women are already complaining about increased sexual assaults, and of course those problems will skyrocket. Only men will be deemed at fault because it is feminist ideology that men are innately batterers and women are victims.
The military is already plagued with reports of large sex scandals in our current coed army. At the Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, 32 instructors allegedly took advantage of their power over 59 recruits, and at least two instructors allegedly had sexual encounters with 10 different recruits.
We have covered Phyllis Schlafly comprehensively on GodDiscussion; she has about the same controversial level as Pat Robertson for the statements she makes; she stated once that there was some sort of secret plot in the Obama government to control the population, and as a result not enough Christians are being reproduced for the nation.
