Democrats claim to fight for all things nature, they want things to be natural. Really they are just anti-capitolist but let's pretend for a minute that they really do believe in supporting a natural order.
Then why do they so adamantly oppose gender roles?
I was at Les Schwab last night and while I was watching the guys work I realized that they were... all guys. This is not because they discriminate but because women generally do not gravitate towards work of that nature.
So why does our society, and especially government, insist on creating the illusion that men and women can do and should do the same tasks?
The Portland Firefighters have this as a condition of employment:
Our Physical Agility Test reflects the minimum physical abilities you need to do this job. In the Physical Agility Test, you will be asked to perform several tasks similar to those performed by firefighters on the job. These tasks are designed to test your strength, stamina, endurance, agility and ability to work at heights.
They say to "check back" for the current testing benchmarks but I have to wonder, are they different for men and women applicants? Clearly men are physically stronger than women and can lift more weight.
Is giving a woman a lighter load a smart idea? I don't know about you but I don't want the woman firefighter, who didn't make the minimum requirements a man would have to, trying to lift me up and carry me out of a burning building. This kind of ridiculous social promotion could get people killed. (Remember the woman deputy who had her gun taken from her and the killing spree that ensued?)
If a fire department refuses to hire a woman applicant because she can't perform the same as a man it's not discrimination, it's following the natural order of things.
