Inkstain is a moron. The US Military doesn't allow single parents to enlist. Period.

I've done the same thing before, but drop it after a while, becouse the pro choice crowd circles their wagons and protect their pride, even though they know they are wrong. Double standard is how they live.
Gtown, you havent been right about anything here since you started posting, but you HAVE done a lot of lying about it.

Carry on shmuck.

Since you think both genders are equal and have equal rights and none should be specific nurturers, why shouldn't men have a paternity leave?
Absolutely,when men give birth and suckle their offspring.

Exactly, you cannot change role models within a family. But a child also need his dad present to.

A child needs both a mother and a father. Without them, you are left with damaged goods as children.

I disagree. To me, you come across as a control freak who doesn't know how to let go of other people's reins.

As for military women, they've already got to make provisions before they go overseas. Sometimes kids stay with their dads, sometimes another family member steps up and takes care of the kids (this is usually when mom and dad are stationed at separate posts). And yes, sometimes women die overseas, leaving their husbands and kids behind. They've made provisions for that as well. And most likely, the families are well taken care of insurance-wise.

"The reality is that women have already served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. They comprise 15 percent of the 1.4 million active military personnel. More than 280,000 women have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan or to other war zones; 152 have died and 800 been injured. Enlisted women want payment for their combat duties, and they seek promotions to jobs denied them; some are suing the Pentagon over this issue.

Women join the military for the same reasons as do men. Because of the recession, high unemployment, and the proliferation of part-time and low-wage jobs, they are also subjected to the “economic draft.” This is especially true for women of color, who face worse discrimination and economic inequality. The military recruits them
by promising college educations, job training and benefits."
<SNIP>
"Male soldiers have been serving three and four deployments in war zones. Many suffer from war-related post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Troop morale is low; suicides are at an all-time high. There is no military draft to replenish the forces. Pentagon and other government officials fear a major revolt among the youth if they try to reinstate it.

Women are needed in combat. This is a major reason for the Pentagon’s new policy."

Children need both incomes to do well in life. It's poverty that makes the difference. Divorce is expensive. But in my experience, attorneys aren't too hot on having their clients legally separate (which, imo, is a better solution for doomed relationships).

Don't take my word for it, though. Here's a report, 10yrs old, still relevant though.

No, kids suffer whenever the home is disrupted, and I wish there was no one going to war. I just don't know why any woman would want to complicate it.
Men and women fighting together, living together, and more and more problems will happen.
A kid named Jacob worked with my wife a few years ago, and talked of joining the marines. He did, and now he's dead, becouse he was shot by a fellow marine the other night along with a "woman", and then the marine that shot and killed them, shot and killed himself.
This kinda stuff will just get worse. People have a human nature.
War calls for complete concentration, and I realize I come up with things to make people think about reality.
Why are men and women seperated in our prison system?
that's my new thought of the day :)

Militant religionist guys like "Gtown" and Tommy obviously have serious issues with equality. They make THAT obvious every time they post.:-)
Ok ocean "who has still not answered my question ",if we are equal, then why not put women and men in the same prisons together?
If men and women can work, fight, together, then why not do time together?
I'm sure there would be no problems there either, right?

The USA has had co-ed prisons since, at least, the late '70s. Female prisons see its share of violence with male guards as perpetuaters.

What would Gtown recommend?

But I have read an article where most men tend to be sexually harrassed by female perputators.

Men should have maternity leave too, if you want equality, since you think both should go to work and none should be a specific nurturer.
I agree that men should have paternity leave (that's the correct term, hon.) They do in some countries, and it results in healthier families. As a matter of fact, here in NM, both my friend and her husband got family leave when their baby was born.

Since some women have convince the military that women should be allowed in combat which may very well lead to women having to serve in combat doesn't that amount to girls not having a choice to go to battle and possibly die and leave orphans behind?
Is that a weird concept to you?
I already wrote that I oppose the draft. I don't think that any person should be forced to go into battle. When men enlist in the military, they sometimes die in battle, leaving their children fatherless. When they die for their countries, we call them heroes. It isn't any different if a woman dies for her country, leaving her children motherless. She is a hero.

Of course it is paternity leave, I might have a mild form of dyslexia, with a bit of anxiety, still easy enough to cope with, you just have your silly mood swings.

Just because your daddy showed his disdain recently of people who make "bigoted" remarks, does not mean they are to be hated and shown open comtempt for it, child.

It figures that Ink would fawn over a dink like Gtown71. Lol, hilarious.
