7. OUR SOLDIERS FOUGHT SO WOMEN COULD CHOOSE TO WEAR WHATEVER THEY WANT
Next time you see that commercial for a veteran’s charity where the brain-damaged victim of an IED struggles to learn to walk again, picture him having to put some high heels on. “€œGood, you”€™re standing again. Now you can see what secretaries go through.”€ Instead of ignoring the part where you”€™re free to wear whatever you want, how about we focus on how we got that freedom in the first place? We got that way because men were forced to go to war and die. Today, these soldiers volunteer to die for their country without question. They don”€™t even question orders when they”€™re told to prance around in women’s clothing.

8. BEING A SOLDIER IS WAY HARDER THAN BEING A WOMAN
Uncomfortable shoes are harder to wear than comfortable shoes but a ruck march is brutal in any footwear. How about women get together and do a week of boot camp to show their gratitude? How about they walk a mile in a soldier’s shoes carrying a 70lb pack on their back? Oh, that’s right. They can”€™t. That’s why the military has to keep delaying the pull-up requirement. Women can”€™t do it.

9. WOMEN PARTICIPATED IN THIS MARCH
Even within the “€œstupidest fucking thing”€ ever, there are elements that go above and beyond the call of stupid. This march included women wearing their own shoes. They are women walking a mile in their own high heels so they can see what it’s like to be that same woman walking a mile in her own shoes. What an incredibly unambitious experiment. You”€™re living your life as you just to see what it’s like? It’s like when rappers say, “€œI”€™m doing me.”€ Congratulations, you”€™re existing.

What’s even more absurd is how unusual it looked seeing all these girls pull out their one pair of heels. Women don”€™t wear high heels anymore. They wear flip-flops and Uggs. Even when they dress up for weddings the heels only stay on until it’s time to hit the dance floor. Then it’s a hillbilly jamboree.

10. COLLEGE RAPE IS NOT A THING
I”€™m not sure why there is such a huge demand for examples of college rape but the supply is simply not there. Women are forced to invent rapes like the UVA hoax and the mattress girl just to get their numbers up. Feminists are including drunk sex and sex you regret later in the category. Today it’s considered rape if you don”€™t ask permission for every single movement you make in bed. “€œDo you mind if I put my hand there?”€ Sounds fun. There is no need for more awareness. There is a surplus of awareness. This is likely because the government created Title IX, which purports to be about fighting rape but has really provided a financial incentive to create more of it. Harvard students were just asked to fill out a rape survey asking them if someone has repeatedly asked them out for dinner and drinks. The survey is rife with trigger warnings and offers anyone who is offended a $5 gift card at Amazon.

Now, there does appear to be a rape problem within the military particularly while soldiers are overseas. This is a real issue that’s getting worse. Drawing attention to it is definitely a wise move. Is that what this is about? If that’s just one small part of it, it’s the only part that makes sense. But if you”€™re hosting an event and forcing people to attend, we shouldn”€™t have to wade through nine reasons just to find one salient point. That’s like arguing with a woman, and that’s what we were trying to avoid in the first place.
