Norway is starting to implement female conscription in the name of equality, and surprise surprise, feminists tried (in vain) to stop it. Anyone who still has doubts as to what feminism stands for should do himself a favour and read this article.
- The Norwegian Association for Women’s Rights, NKF, is not opposed to women voluntarily seeking a career in the military if they want to, and the way the system works today, women in fact have the same opportunities as men to join the armed forces. Conscription is something else – it includes everybody and entails the use of force. NKF strongly warns against the exertion of pressure to get women into the military and particularly the introduction of female conscription.
Their idea of equality is that women should have all the rights that men have, but not the same duties.
- To ensure gender equality it is important in many cases that women and men are treated equally. But they should not necessarily be treated equally in all situations. In some cases, the underprivileged gender must be favoured to be able obtain similar results.
They really couldn't make it any more clear than this. Equal opportunity is fine unless men do better than women, in which case it's okay to give women an advantage in order to ensure an equal outcome. But even an equal outcome is only to be sought in those situations where women have something to gain from it. Being forced to join the military is obviously not a desirable outcome, so the government should forget about the notion of equality altogether, and just do what's best for women. Feminism in a nutshell, gentlemen.
