“So what does this have to do with the online community?” Chiles was referring to sexual assaults reported in a gender-mixed infantry battalion in 2015.“You had 30,000 members in an online group, you’re always going to have your 1 or 10 percent that are going to do things wrong, that go against the Marine Corps and its standards. You've noted that while society's happy for a famous man to age, and become distinguished, and generally wander around looking like a fucking wizard, the women generally still seem to be 20 years younger, and standing there on the cover of magazines, all like, "Oh! You've watched the whole Caitlyn Jenner trans thing unfold and gone, "You know what — this all seems fair enough. You like women being equal to men — which is all that feminism means. Because I am a chronic over-sharer, and incapable of keeping secrets. Unfortunately, in both cases, the entire future of the world does rest on people being able to say those words properly, and not mumbling "femernism", or "envibeoment". Which are both, when you think about it, much odder-sounding. 'The Man'So, when women talk about "The Man", we're not talking about you. And we remembered all the times on social media, or in conversations, an angry man has said, "Women are WINNING now. It is MEN who are being silenced", and it all made sense. But we don't want to go on about it to you, because that would be morbid. — but we must also work for less money, as discussed above. This is why, maybe, women can become suddenly furious — why online discussions about feminism suddenly ignite into rage. I'm gonna be honest with you — for the first five years of my adult life, most of my decisions were made by the contents of my pants. If we're getting sexually harassed, is it because we're wearing the wrong skirt? Besides, as discussed above, men need feminism almost as badly as women do. You know babies come out of vaginas and it fucking stings, and that the vaginas are having a hard time anyway, what with all the waxing they get. You've called Donald Trump "a twat" for his sexist comments about a female news anchor being on her period. It's the 21st century and you are, most assuredly, not a dick. So, what I am going to do, instead, is tell you 12 things about women that women are usually too embarrassed to tell you themselves. They both have that slight implication of, "I'm now going to launch into a speech that's basically about what a great person I am". " — until they feel as normal as saying "pina colada", or "Michael Fassbender". Similarly, when we talk about the patriarchy, that's not you, either. And then it turned up every month for the next 30 years. I PRESUME YOUR CONCERN FOR THE WELFARE OF CHILDREN EXTENDS INTO A LIFE SPENT VOLUNTEERING IN CARE HOMES, FOSTERING AND DONATING YOUR WAGES TO THE NSPCC — AND DOESN'T SOLELY REST ON HARASSING AND ABUSING TEARFUL, POSSIBLY RAPED WOMEN WHO ARE TRYING TO GET A SAFE, LEGAL MEDICAL PROCEDURE SO THEY DON'T FUCK UP THE REST OF THEIR LIVES." Here's another thing we're too embarrassed to say: we'd love it if a big bunch of pro-choice men turned up at these clinics, and helped escort the scared women in. And if women talk 25–50 per cent of the time, they're seen as "dominating the conversation". We don't want to mention it, because it's kind of a bummer, chat-wise, and we'd really like to talk about stuff that makes us happy, like look at our daughters — and we can't help but think, "Which one of us? " We walk down the street at night with our keys clutched between our fingers, as a weapon. We talk to each other for hours on the phone — to share knowledge. Given the figures, we can't sometimes help but feel we're just… Because that would be a realistic thing to think, and we like to be prepared. We know we must have our babies when we're young — the eggs are running out! But it does seem amazing that a clever, well-travelled man, whose job it is to examine the human condition, and who had a pretty steamy relationship with Germaine Greer at one point, has never realised that women can be just as driven by their desire as men. If we're still getting talked-over at meetings, is it because we're not dressing powerfully enough? Feminism can only work if men are feminists, too — because the only indice by which feminism will succeed is based on how many people believe in it, support it, and want it to happen. There's no point in only 27 per cent of people believing in equality because the maths, very obviously, show that you won't be equal if 73 per cent of people think you're not. hide the feminism in a special secret place, and only let certain people have access to it. If you have a bunch of males together and this happens, just think about what can happen if you add women to that.I see this turning into a big problem for both sides [males and females] and the integrity of the Marine Corps wouldn’t stand just based off what happened with Marines United,” he concluded.We need to look at American defense first before looking at integration.”Neller’s spokesman, Marine Lt. Eric Dent, harshly criticized Chiles’s comments and compared engaging with him and other critics of the military’s gender integration “to arguing with a toddler incapable of understanding rudimentary logic.” “Mr.Chiles premise is completely ridiculous,” Dent said in a statement to The Daily Beast.
Marine, is speaking out to defend the 30,000 members of Marines United, which was caught sharing explicit photos of women—civilian and military—without their knowledge or consent.
“The Marine Corps is supposed to go out and win wars, being the front line of defense for America,” he continued. Green, the Corps’ most senior enlisted member—to integrate women into combat roles.“Sen.
“So why should would we integrate women when we know it’s going to happen and it’s just going to continue to be a huge distraction? Elizabeth Warren was a prime example, pushing for a co-ed boot camp and she questioned the commandant on why we’re not doing that.
You know the pay disparity; still 20 per cent less for women in this country, and not a single prosecution, even though it's literally illegal. Ugh.") You've seen Amy Schumer's brilliant, edgy sketches on contraception and rape, and laughed along with them. You don't need Tits Mc Gee here to take you through it one more time. It's the same as when you say the word "environment". You are unlikely to get custody of your kids, and are three times more likely to commit suicide. Men, imagine if, some time around your 12th birthday, some manner of viscous liquid — let's say gravy — suddenly appeared in your pants, in the middle of a maths lesson. We're like, "THIS IS ALREADY A REALLY, REALLY SHIT DAY. Talking In the last year or so, we saw this study, from America, and it broke our hearts a bit, because it explains so much: in a mixed-gender group, when women talk 25 per cent of the time or less, it's seen as being "equally balanced". So we know even success, and money, will not protect us from the humiliation of simply being a woman. "Christ," Amis said, "that's sort of lad's mag talk — sort of more male than male." Obviously, I am noble enough to recognise that Amis is from an older generation — one whose women, by and large, did not feel comfortable discussing their sexuality in any great detail. And we fret about all this — appearance, clothes — because it matters. " We don't want to get into an argument, but we just can't see the logic in it.
Someone who fingered you said it was like diddling a Gonk. No mumbling Like you, we feel a bit embarrassed about saying the word "feminism". Because remember that patriarchy's bumming you as hard as it's bumming us. You, meanwhile, are unable to talk about your feelings lest you get punched in the nuts by "a lad" telling you not to be "a bender". Being a woman doesn't make "being a woman" any easier. It's like having an exploding, insane blood-bag of pain up in your business end — nothing really prepares you for when it all kicks off. The next, you're suddenly having to wedge a tiny Barbie mattress in your knickers, crying while you watch , and eating Nurofen Plus like they're Tic Tacs. Have you ever tried to scrub blood out of a Premier Inn sheet at 6am, using just travel shampoo and your toothbrush? We're not dealing with this in a special, noble lady-way. We've seen our biggest female role-models and icons shamed in the press, over and over: computers hacked and nude pictures released; sex-tapes released. One of the few times I have been personally offended was when Martin Amis commented on a column I wrote about female masturbation. You're just getting up in the morning, putting on your trousers and getting on with stuff. Male feminists We're embarrassed when other women say, "Men can't be feminists!
