"Get Over It! We Are Not All Created Equal"
Captain Katie Petronio

The LGBT organization, now a well established sub-culture in America, has come to prominence during the past 15 years or so as a distinct group. Among its beliefs is equal treatment under law in every facet of national life. If this were possible, and attempted, women would suffer unequally. Our Judeo-Christian ethics, the infrastructure of American life and tradition, demand that LGBT culture be rejected by our military organizations. More specifically, women in combat units. I have nothing to say about members of this culture participating in any other organizations, and women are especially required and welcomed in most all other elements of the American work force.

Radical LGBT members have pushed for decades to place women in ground combat units. This is a direct threat by fostering "conduct prejudicial to good order and discipline" which destroys unit cohesion.

This rule of exclusion (from combat) is not new. The rule is thousands of years old, for good and obvious reasons. First is the ancient natural law protecting women from harm. Second, the related common sense understanding that women are special, exhaulted members of society, responsible for bearing and nurturing new human life. They have been “by the laws of nature and of nature's God” designed for that highest, unique and most invaluable role. Men, by that same law, because of their superior physical strength, are designed to protect women and children from harm, while holding them in the highest respect and acknowledging their absolute equality in dignity.

This is why no army in human history has been composed exclusively of women. Let's forget the myth of Amazonian culture. This is why the men are expected to defend women against harm and treat them with special respect; why the husband defends his wife, the father his daughter, the brother his sister. This is why women and children were first in lifeboats on the Titanic. This is what the obligation of manhood means. This is the natural order of human experience, while not ignoring the failures of this natural tradition. This is also a fundamental Judeo-Christian commandment, which demands special protection for the widow and orphan.

These rules, brutally sabotaged in the 20th Century, are still under attack in the 21st Century by the Liberal Left anarchists and socialists (see Venezuela for a current socialist example).

A main concern is the preservation of our high Judeo-Christian military traditions, which are greatly threatened by pressure from feminists, LGBT culture, and weak military leadership. Destroy this moral ethos and America will begin losing her wars. So the first issue is the moral imperative that women should not participate in infantry combat.

Women in combat? Let's hear from Marine Capt Katie Petronio, who "led a combat engineer platoon in direct support of Regimental Combat Team 8, specifically operating out of the Upper Sangin Valley. My platoon operated for months at a time, constructing patrol bases (PBs) in support of 3d Battalion, 5th Marines; 1st Battalion, 5th Marines; 2d Reconnaissance Battalion; and 3d Battalion, 4th Marines." Captain Petronio was a special woman even before her combat experience. She is a patriot and a hero, and she is honest about women in combat. Her statement to her beloved Marines, "Get Over It! We Are Not All Created Equal"

" main concern is a question of longevity. Can women endure the physical and physiological rigors of sustained combat operations, and are we willing to accept the attrition and medical issues that go along with integration?

As a young lieutenant, I fit the mold of a female who would have had a shot at completing IOC, and I am sure there was a time in my life where I would have volunteered to be an infantryman. I was a star ice hockey player at Bowdoin College, a small elite college in Maine, with a major in government and law. At 5 feet 3 inches I was squatting 200 pounds and benching 145 pounds when I graduated in 2007. I completed Officer Candidates School (OCS) ranked 4 of 52 candidates, graduated 48 of 261 from TBS, and finished second at MOS school. I also repeatedly scored far above average in all female-based physical fitness tests (for example, earning a 292 out of 300 on the Marine physical fitness test). Five years later, I am physically not the woman I once was and my views have greatly changed on the possibility of women having successful long careers while serving in the infantry."

" I was a motivated, resilient second lieutenant when I deployed to Iraq for 10 months, traveling across the Marine area of operations (AO) and participating in numerous combat operations. Yet, due to the excessive amount of time I spent in full combat load, I was diagnosed with a severe case of restless leg syndrome. My spine had compressed on nerves in my lower back causing neuropathy which compounded the symptoms of restless leg syndrome. While this injury has certainly not been enjoyable, Iraq was a pleasant experience compared to the experiences I endured during my deployment to Afghanistan."

Captain Capt Petronio soldiered on: "... the rate of my deterioration was noticeably faster than that of male Marines and further compounded by gender-specific medical conditions. At the end of the 7-month deployment, and the construction of 18 PBs later, I had lost 17 pounds and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (which personally resulted in infertility,...”

"Regardless of my deteriorating physical stature, I was extremely successful during both of my combat tours, serving beside my infantry brethren and gaining the respect of every unit I supported. " "I was the senior Marine making the final decisions on construction concerns, along with 24-hour base defense and leading 30 Marines at any given time."

Read her inspiring story.
The reason women cannot be found in the ranks of men's professional sports leagues is the fact that women biologically are not able to perform physically to the same level as men. The reason men cannot be found in birthing centers is because they cannot give birth. No one but the most virulent of feminists continues to challenge these facts. This is not discrimination of the evil sort. The problem is - the more obvious the facts, the greater the feminist resistance. We have to stop listening to the radical Leftist lies if we want the strongest military possible. Military service is not a right - it's a privilege.

The feminist-Left and LGBT agenda has churned American military affairs to an astonishing degree. They have undermined traditional military discipline and order for more than 30 years. Everything pertaining to military readiness is now unbelievably compromised.

I don't count myself a veteran because there was no combat between the Korean War and Vietnam War. I served 3 years, training for a war that wasn't there yet, as millions of others. That experience was in the old Army. It was an all male regular army, with some draftees. When the shooting started 2 years after my discharge, women came into their own as indispensible heroic doctors and nurses in Vietnam.

Everything was simple in that time. Permission to get married was needed. The Fort Bragg division was completely independent. We had our own kitchens, cooked our own food, kept the barracks hospital clean, and policed the grounds before chow. We slept in 4-squad barracks, double-decker bunks. Only NCOs had rooms. Each company platoon had its own rifle racks in barracks. We enjoyed numerous inspections.

We were extremely cohesive as squads, platoons, companies, and a battalion. We ate together, worked together, and partied together in Fayetteville. It was rock-and-chisel simple, but nowhere near as sophisticated as today's Special Forces. We could, and did, move out to Fort Kobe, Canal Zone, Hon River, Korea, and Luzon, Philippines, on short notice. The absence of a war made it easier. The absence of women made it possible. We could do this because the organization was simple; we had no thought, for example, about sending pregnant troopers home, or treating feminine issues. I can only imagine the unit chaos if a female trooper occupied one of those bunks, or latrines, or showers. But all that was a very long time ago.

Today, the combat unit is not a simple organization, largely due to the influx of women and the LGBT influence upon weak military leaders. Only Special Forces and SEAL-type groups have so far escaped the distraction of women in their units.

It's time to simplify our ground combat units again, and the circumstances under which they deploy and fight. Resistance to President's Trump's orders banning women from ground combat began instantly. The extent that LGBT influence has impressed even flag officer levels has just been revealed by a Coast Guard Admiral Paul Zukunft's recent statement. He publically rejected the Commander in Chief's order to end LGBT members from military service.

”Adm. Paul Zukunft said his first action upon becoming aware of Trump's tweets [to ban LGBT service personnel] was to have his office reach out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have self-identified as transgender." "... the commandant of the Coast Guard is speaking out, saying he has no intention of leaving transgender Coast Guardsmen out in the cold." This is precisely what combat soldiers fear, focusing on protecting an individual female when tactics demand otherwise for the survival of the group. Zukunft has sold out his thousands of sailors for 13 "special" sailors. I wonder what General George Patton would say.

Just in: "...two other four-stars and former chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff -- retired Army Gen. Martin Dempsey and retired Navy Adm. Mike Mullen -- have publicly supported transgender service members." This is an unprecedented military crisis.

This is Trump's acid test moment. If General Kelly also rejects Trump's command, we are in real trouble.
