WOMEN IN COMBAT
My heart aches for the 'gains' we've made.
I have spent my entire life opposing wars and the story of the poor killing the poor. And now we are rejoicing in the official recognition of women killing as well as men.
When I fought for equality this is far from what I meant.
Neither men nor women should go to war and kill others just like themselves.
I really must be a fossil.
When I've fought for the rights of Gay men and Lesbians it was neither for the 'right' to marry, nor the 'right' to be in the military.
I oppose both marriage and the military.
I, for one, have never wanted to be 'just like you'.
I still oppose the military with all my heart and soul.
And I see marriage as basically an institution of economic injustice.
