Interesting 6 things Olivet College could do to be more transparent about their agenda when dealing with students (and their parents) who are considering enrollment.
What he’s saying here is very disturbing. Asking for ‘fair and balanced’ on a college campus today is like asking for pork in an Islamic country.
They’re really not about women’s rights at all. In the face of Islamic extremism that encourages female mutiliation, beating women and honor killing, they remain completely silent. In the Sudan, as the story of the condemned British schoolteacher, Gillian Gibbons unfolds about the muslim/Islamic backlash for her naming a teddy bear Mohammed, American feminists STILL remain silent. And the backlash has been significant-some were calling for Ms. Gibbons’ death while rioting in the streets. Tammy Bruce points out feminists’ unwillingness to stand up for Gibbons:
There has been appropriate international outrage over the treatment of Gibbons, from virtually everyone except American “feminists.” Multiple Muslim groups in the U.K. have condemned the sentence. Even the popular little boy in Mrs. Gibbons’ class who suggested the name for the bear came to her defense, explaining that he named the bear after himself.
Yet, when asked by FOX News for a comment about the situation, a National Organization for Women spokeswoman said they were “not putting out a statement or taking a position.”
How politically correct of her.
This is how depraved the American left has become. A little Muslim boy in Sudan shows more courage and conviction for a woman under fire than a bunch of women sitting in Washington, D.C., who preen themselves on being the premiere “advocates” for women.
It’s been apparent for years that the American feminist establishment is nothing more than a shill for the shallow leftists in the Democrat party, wrapping themselves in the feminist label for convenience. Groups like NOW and Eleanor Smeal’s Feminist Majority, also amazingly silent in the past five years about Islamic terrorism and violence against women, use women’s issues as nothing more than slogans and chants in their efforts to gain political power.
It’s all about power and money to leftists, anyway…as long as it’s not their money.
Compare a schoolteacher naming a Teddy Bear “Mohammed” with suicide bombers named “Mohammed”. Then ask yourself why the schoolteacher is insulting the prophet using that name and the suicide bombers aren’t. (Bruce, 2007)

It’s not theoretically against the law for women to die in war; what is unethical is for the army to place them in harm’s way intentionally, against regulations.
This illegal, inappropriate behavior on the Army’s part- is what Elaine Donnelly talks about at The Center for Military Readiness, here.
Controversy about the Army’s “anything goes attitude toward women in land combat has gotten worse. As the Center for Military Readiness has been reporting since 2004, Army officials have been redefining and circumventing regulations regarding female soldiers, without authorization by the Secretary of Defense, and without the legally required advance notice to Congress.
This is outrageous, considering women like 2nd Lt. Tracy Lynn Alger are dying for no good reason.
She was in a direct ground combat-collocated forward support company – a battalion level unit that is required by current Defense Department regulations to be all male.
Read the rest, but what I warned in my letters to the editor and to my elected officials back in the 70’s – about “equal rights” eventually putting women into combat…has happened. And it’s happening dishonestly; through the backdoor.
I suppose the point is…women will die in war as long as they’re working with the military, but we don’t have to be STUPID about it, and put them intentionally in harm’s way alongside the guys who are physically up to the task of carrying a full battle rattle, etc. It’s putting our men at unncessary risk, too. War is hard, tough, and physically demanding. Put the people who are best-suited for the job at the front, and put the girls who don’t have the upper body strength to carry a wounded fellow soldier-where they can do the most good.
Men and women, as I talked about at Cao’s blog, are not physically equal. Weight Watchers recognizes the difference, and the difference is observed in competitive sports and body building.
