Women And Other Minorities.

Woman.
God knows, I love you all as a species, but I really don't have a clue what goes on in your heads.
Let's look at the lovely Reese Witherspoon for example, shown above parading her United Nations Women's Empowerment bracelet. She made her first appearance on the big screen at the age of 15 in the 1991 movie 'The Man In The Moon' and has seen her career grow to the point where she's now one of Hollywood's highest earning stars, making between 15 - 20 million dollars a movie, so what she knows about the struggle of oppressed women across the world is completely lost on me.

While we're at it, women fire fighters.
WTF is that all about?
Let's be clear about one thing. If my house is on fire, I want a fireMAN who looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Commando' except with more steroids, a man who can knock down walls with his bare hands, a man who looks like he can carry a whole bus to safety, to smash down the door of my house and lift my unconscious body to sanctuary. Mr Jaggy, for example, is not what you would call 'slight of build', and were he to find himself overcome by fumes in the upstairs of his burning house, I reckon his chances of survival would be slim at best if Fire Fighter Judy was sent in to save him.


Female Soldiers.
Yes you can point a gun, yes you can throw a grenade, yes you can climb up that wall on the assault course using the rope like Richard Gere did, but lets see you tackle a knife-wielding Somalian militia man when your gun jams, or drag your wounded comrade onto that Blackhawk whilst hefting your M240 and letting off a few rounds at the insurgents. It ain't happening.

I fully realise that my opinions may offend some of the fairer sex, but that's not my intention. I just think that political correctness is creating more problems than it fixes. I mean you no disrespect, but the reality is that just because you legally can do a thing, doesn't mean you should.

Oh, silly me - I'm not a female fireman... yet!

regarding your comments on female firefighters I think you're being a bit silly. Have you ever SEEN the women who become firefighters? They're hardly like that porno lady you show above, they're hugely muscular ladies who could whirl you around their head or crush you underfoot.

If they look like said porno ladies then I'm away to find the matches and petrol

Inchy, the female is deadlier than the male, my friend... I read somewhere that anti-terrorism squads are instructed to shoot any female terrorists dead first as they're the ones who'll actually go the whole hog and take everybody with them given half a chance... the guys are easier to reason with and encourage to surrender.

Risk of death by choking or not I'll happily take my chances with the Fire-Lady above. Why my pants are on fire just thinking about it....
