This story, which is old hat by now, is just the latest in a number of examples of how ''conservatives'' and Republicans have done little to nothing to try to arrest the decay of our society.
Once upon a time ''conservatives'' resisted the idea of the military being turned into a co-ed/egalitarian social experiment. But where are the voices opposing this now? Last time I read a discussion on this subject at a ''conservative'' web forum, a great many people (including military folk) supported the inclusion of women alongside men in the military, with some expressing the very liberal egalitarian idea that ''some women are as good warriors as men'', or ''some women can outdo men'', etc. And don't dare criticize the co-ed military to an average Republican woman; she immediately begins to assume her militant feminist pose when you say anything critical.
The men who are accused in these incidents appear (at least by the names that are mentioned) as being Hispanic or perhaps mixed. And of course the anti-racist (read: anti-Whites) will cry that it's bigoted to even notice the names or the ethnicity/race of the accused. But there is no denying that a pattern seems to exist -- though noticing patterns is a thought-crime nowadays.
Do I judge them as guilty? The accusations do sound plausible. However, I don't let the women off the hook. According to what they say about the incidents, they gave consent to a great degree; they courted the risk. They, being 'big girls', should have exercised some discretion and common sense, but they did not. Their behaviors and choices put them at risk of harassment, at least. In this case, it seems that one of the female accusers was upset or angry that her 'harasser' was a married man with children, perhaps believing that she had a real relationship with him.
The women who seek to be in what has traditionally been an all-male, macho environment are deluding themselves if they think there will be no sexual side to their co-ed adventure. Or perhaps they think the military is just a good place to meet men. And yes, there may be a few women who naively think they can ''serve their country'' alongside men, and that they are capable of being just 'one of the boys.'
But human nature can't be ignored or re-channeled, though that is a primary belief of the left. Those Republicans who approve of a co-ed military, women on submarines, and so on, prove that they are as liberal as any of the Democrats in their presumptions.
